I have developed a small app that displays (among others) a mobile website using the native webview. On iOS it all works and looks fantastically.
On Android (tested with v4.2.2, Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus) it won't do anything with hyperlinks to external PDF files. It doesn't download it, or display it to the user. Nothing happens. On iOS, the PDF is shown directly.
My ultimate goal is to be able to open and show the PDF to the user directly. But I can also live with the fact that the PDF gets downloaded when the user clicks on the hyperlink (which is the case when the website is opened on the device using the webbrowser).
Is this possible? I tried installing a PDF viewing app, but that did not solve it.
I'd appreciate any response.
