Android: Opening PDF attachment asks me to download the file via a browser.

On Android, when I open an attachment on Trello I will be prompted to download the PDF file using a browser. This is not an issue on an iPhone where the PDF file will just open--is there a way to open the PDF file instead of downloading it from a browser?

There is no PDF viewer installed by default on Android. You have to install one, otherwise the app will default to downloading the file, like you're experiencing. 

google released a standalone PDF viewer that works fine for most uses : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.pdfviewer&hl=en
