    I use Nokia 5235 and when i tried to install the app i get a message certificate expired.Any Sol.?

    1. Ishank Badhani (Post author)

      It may be due to firmware update(*5230/5235/5233 firmware updated to v50 ). I never tried fixing certificate error but if you search on Google you will surely find a solution. However, if you need an alternative to this app to read PDF, check this one http://gallery.mobile9.com/f/1937131/. This app has a nifty interface and can open documents, presentation and PDF files.
