let me clarify.

once a user click on the help button, it downloads a fresh copy from my 
server using tsnet.

after that i copy it to the folder on the sdcard.

then launch it.

Android can ask how you want to open it, it can be simply done in Chrome.

when closing Chrome then it goes auto back to my app. (probably because 
that was the one which launched Chrome
