New version of Adobe Reader in Symbian^3 phones is pretty decent for opening PDF files but it is always good to have an alternative app for important tasks. I have already described Alternate Reader – a good, free PDF viewer app in an older post. Recently I came to know about a new PDF/DJVU reader app – the NSR Reader for Symbian^3. It’s a powerful app to view two popular document format files on Symbian^3 (Anna, Belle) phones. Developed by Alexander Ekimov, NSR Reader is a no frill, easy to use app. Following are its salient features –
1. Supports PDF and DJVU format files (no file size restrictions) including files in Chinese, Japanese and many more languages
2. Supports Pinch-to-zoom
3. Smooth scrolling and easy to use interface. Navigation is fantastic – you can either use Volume up/down keys or touchable arrow keys to navigate between pages. “Go to page” option under menu for quick access.
4. Almost all functions (zoom, forward/backward, open files) are accessible at the main interface (rather than via menu/options)
6. Can save last documents position on exit
7. There is also a “text mode” (column view) for quicker navigation and reading
8. Inverted Color option (white text on black background) to lower battery usage and reduce eye strain
