Displaying & caching PDF files

Android will not natively display a pdf in the browser. The PDF Widget is
supported on all platforms. You can watch for a pdf in the browser and
download and cache it to the device then display it in the PDF Widget.

Subject: Displaying & caching PDF files

Hello list,

I have a request from a client for a mobile app that would display pdf
I know I can use a browser object to display those files, I've done that
numerous times.
My question is more about caching the files, and displaying them again later
without having to download them each time.
I assume that the files are stored in the default browser cache of the
mobile device, but if the same file is being displayed again, does the
browser object look up the default browser cache, or do I have to implement
some sort of cache function in the LC app itself ?

Thanks in advance.
