1. Adobe Reader 

When you think of PDF, the first thing in your mind would be Adobe.Yes, the creators of PDF file format were also one of the earliest to enter the Android Market (now Google Play) with their PDF Reader.
PDF files have become a de facto standard format for creating, sharing and publishing documents.So it is very much essential to have a PDF reader and what better than the very own Adobe Reader.It is one of the lightest PDF reader (around 3.5 MB) in the Market and it has a very sleek and simple user interface.

 Features : 

Adobe Reader for Android offers multi-touch gestures, like pinch-and-zoom, as well as double-tap-zoom, flick-scrolling and panning. They have also added a “reflow” mode, which will take text-heavy documents with wide margins, and automatically wrap the content for easy viewing on smaller screens.(source)
