Does anyone know if the Acrotex bundle works on Android devices? Specifically, I would like to use the exerquiz package in conjunction with media9 to create interactive educational pdfs for Android (and possibly Apple) devices. I have already managed to make video play flawlessly on ezPDF in my Android phone (H-264 mp4 video plays on an iPhone when embedded in a PDF via Acrobat, but not via media9), and I'd like to make interactive quizzes using exerquiz - or any other package with the same functionality.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

  • you can check if the examples here work on your android device (I got mixed result with mine). – Nico Boni Sep 20 '14 at 8:32
  • Thanks a lot, guys. Seems like exerquiz works with ezpdf reader, at least on my nexus 5. The example from the acrotex site do work, but a PDF that I made doesn't. Guess I'll have to check my LaTeX source code against the site's. – Marcos Verissimo Alves Sep 21 '14 at 5:05
  • I have the same problem and I am very intereseted in a solution. I have tried only with Adobe Reader for android and my files based on exerquiz do not work. I'll have a look to the reader you suggest, but any other suggestion or workaround will be very appreciated. – grames Sep 23 '14 at 21:16

    Grames, looks like Acrobat Reader for Android doesn't have the same functionality as the PC version, starting with embedded video through LaTeX's media9. I have searched a lot for workarounds, but to no avail. The only "workaround" that worked for me was buying ezPDF, unfortunately. – Marcos Verissimo Alves Sep 24 '14 at 22:40
