How to open pdf from server from Android app in Adobe Reader

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I'm trying to open a pdf file from a server in adobe reader. These are valid pdfs that I can view in other apps. The following code gives me a message saying "The document could not be opened" Any ideas why? PackageManager pm = getPackageManager(); Intent intent = pm.getLaunchIntentForPackage("com.adobe.reader"); intent.setDataAndType(Uri.parse(documents.get(position).getPdf_url()), "application/pdf"); startActivity(intent); (HowTos)
