Browzine "Open In" functionality

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: I just said how wonderful Browzine is, but I notice  one not-so-wonderful thing about it. I'm using an Android (v. 4.2.2) tablet.  When an article is open in Browzine, the app choices in the drop-down menu for "Open In" aren't very useful. In particular, they do not include Acrobat Reader and other apps that will read PDFs. This seems like kind of a
weakness. (Although it is possible to send the article to Dropbox, and then go there to open it in a PDF reader. But that's a lot of hassle, and waiting for a round trip to the cloud.)
