    Hello - I can't seem to get this plugin to work on a mobile site (Android / Apple OS). When I click on the link to download on my mobile phone, the download is the .htm page rather than the .pdf. Any idea what the problem might be?

    Oh crud! You're right. At the moment I'm not 100% sure what's causing it. My educated guess is that it has to do with the file headers. I will figure it out and have a fix for it by the end of the weekend (05/19) at the latest.

    Thank you for pointing it out. My apologies for this.

    Hi Michelle,

    I tested it with the iPhone and had no problems, but when I tested it with the Androids, there was a problem. I looked into it and it turns out that the problem lies with the Android browser. (Always blame the other guy)

    See this bug report: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=1780

    One of the main features of the plugin is keeping the URL hidden. It's this process that the Androids have difficulty with. Currently the only way around this would be to change the process in which the download is delivered. This would reveal the URL, which would compromise the download.

    However, as a developer I can't ignore the Android market. This issue will take some time to correct, so I won't be able to correct it by my self imposed deadline. As soon as I do I will let you know.
