Hi all,
Does anyone know of reading apps that are compatible with the S pen? As a college student, I have to do a lot of reading and studying on my phone. I'd like to be able to scroll PDFs and other reading materials using the S pen, in the same way that one can use the S pen to scroll articles on the Samsung internet browser. The problem is, I haven't yet found any reading apps that are compatible with the S pen. 

Does anybody know of reading apps or PDF apps that allow for full utilization of the S pen? I'd appreciate any and all recommendations.

nope that won't work. eh, no biggie. I did figure out you can use the pen to scroll the screen by hovering over it. I'm not sure that's useful in any way, but it's fun trying out all these features.

specifically I'm trying to configure the S pen to scroll documents quickly using the pen button. so for example when running on the treadmill. instead of swiping the screen up and down, which would be difficult when running, one could use the S pen button scroll down.

or when the phone is plugged into a library monitor in dex mode, when could use the S pen to scroll up and down in a document. that way our study group could all read the same study guide at the same time. it wouldn't be practical to continually move the phone up and down when it's plugged into a power outlet or behind a monitor. but using the S pen in the same way that you could use it for presenting a PowerPoint - which is possible. the function I'm asking about is scrolling instead of presenting PowerPoint slides in that example
