Looking specifically at Windows & Android tablets.
* Created: 7 April 2014
At this time, Preview on Device is supported only for the legacy version of the Adobe Content Viewer for Android, not the native version.
Do the following to make sure that your Android device can communicate properly with your computer.
The folios to which you have access are available for downloading and previewing.
Preview using the beta Adobe Content Viewer in Windows 8.1
A version of the Adobe Content Viewer app is available in the Windows Store. In the Windows Store, search for “Adobe Content Viewer.” This app is available only on devices running Windows 8.1.
At this time, the Adobe Content Viewer includes a limited set of features. Hyperlinks, slideshows, scrollable frames, and videos are supported. Web Content overlays are partially supported.
Image sequence, pan and zoom, audio, and panoramas are not yet supported.
Other DPS features such as social sharing, sections, and in-app purchases are not yet supported.
PDF articles are now supported on Android devices and in the Desktop Viewer. On Android viewers, you can take advantage of the PDF format to reduce file size, reuse iOS folios that have PDF articles, and use pinch & zoom on article pages.
In the Desktop Viewer, you can now preview folios that have PDF articles, which is especially useful to preflight your folio for errors. The app version needs to be v26 or later to display PDF articles, but the folio with PDF articles can be any version. For a video demo, see the PDF Content on Android video.
(Note that this is a change to the existing AIR-based Android viewer, not to the native Android viewer that is currently in development. In addition, PDF support on Android does not include displaying PDF files in the in-app browser.)
