OK, lets say we have an LC Android app that has just printed to pdf
and the file is in ther users DOCUMENTS folder. Can we then just:
launch url(specialfolderpath("documents") & "/a_pdf.pdf")
and one of the above mentioned (installed) PDF Reader will just kick in, 
or is this prohibited by our app's Sandbox?
