Embedded PDF in Android browsers are not currently supported, thus not supported by Alexander. We are looking at other options, but have no timeframe.

Android browsers don't support pdfs? You're kidding!

Fabio seems to have a new Samsung Galaxy Tab, an Android tablet:

There may be an issue with the Adobe Reader in Android. Richard's advice is good - check the Android Market to see if there's an update to the Reader software.

Android has PDF readers, including one from Adobe, but not one that will work inside a browser that I know of.

Thank you for your prompt replies
There are several pdf viewers/readers in the app market, some of them are free others not
Richard
Any hope to solve this issue in the future?
Samdung tab is becoming very popular (not like ipad,of course) and this is in my opinion a huge limitation for this wonderful magazine
Thanks a lot for your help

AskAlexander is looking at different options which would solve this, but there is not a scheduled fix at the moment.

Hopefully a PDF plugin for an android browser will be developed soon.

Hi
I wonder if there is a way to download and read the digital issue without remaining connected through internet

No, you cannot download the issue. You must be connected to the internet to read it.

hey Richard, I could swear that I saw the audio and video files for the current issue working on your iPad at Magi-fest? Do those indeed work somehow? I'm getting a 404 error....

thanks!

The issue on the iPad was pre-loaded on it from the tech company. It displayed the app as it will appear when approved.
At the moment, you need to login in through Safari in the normal way.
