Insider Hacks - Plan Your Trip with PDF Reader

Hi there,

I’m Frank, the PDF project manager at Kdan Mobile. Have you planned for a spring trip yet? This month, I’m going to share my experiences about how to use PDF Reader in planning or preparing for a spring vacation as a solo traveler. If possible, maybe you will see me in Bangkok for the amazing Songkran Festival!

Before You Go: Take a Copy


Whether you travel alone or with a group, always expect the unexpected. Losing a passport is a real possibility, no matter how careful you are. Before I take off on my adventure, I will create digital copies of my passport, credit cards, and other important pieces of identification. Always be prepared for all the worst-case scenarios.

  1. Tap the “Scanner” tab for the scanner.
  2. Place your passport/ID card under the camera and start scanning (or you can import photos from the gallery).
  3. You can adjust the images using the filter or crop tool.
  4. Tap the "Export" button and choose "Convert to PDF".
  5. The scanned project will be saved to the Documents tab as a PDF file.



Find Accommodation: Save Booking Vouchers


I personally use the Agoda app for accommodation search. Sometime, they offer flash deals available for booking from the app. After making a booking, you can send a confirmation email along with the booking voucher (PDF files) to yourself. Simply import the attachment to PDF Reader.

  1. Open the confirmation email.
  2. Tap on the email attachment, and you will see the sharing panel.
  3. Choose “PDF Reader” to open with, and there will be a copy automatically saved into PDF Reader.
  4. You can put your flight info or insurance documents to PDF Reader as well.




Be Organized: Arrange Files in Folders


Organizing travel information will have a big impact on your ability to find those files later. I create folders naming them by the date of my trip, and then they will automatically be ordered by date.


  1. Tap "More Actions" at the top right corner and choose "Add new folder".
  2. Rename the folder by date (mm-dd).
  3. Then move files to the target folder accordingly.
  4. Have a safe trip!




Best regards,
