PDF Viewer Not Showing PDF

I have tried the following ways to get the PDF Viewer to work:

1. Uploading it in the assets portion (worked in browser, but did not work on phone)

2. Store it to https link and click the link (get the following error message: Couldn't open PDF file)

However no matter what I do I am unable to actually get the pdf visible in the app on my Iphone.


Has anyone been successful in doing this? Please help and provide any ways that you have gotten it visible.


@MasterOffice365 ,


That link was made before some restructuring of the forums.  When they do that, links to other posts fail.  Strangely, I did a search for "How-to open sharepoint PDFs in PowerApps".  This was a very long post with many trials and errors.  This post was made to streamline the procedure so people dont have to fish through a long post to put it all together.  That link was mainly for giving credit where it was due for the development.  Not sure there is a lot to learn from it anyway.


This is the short concise link on how to view PDF in PA.
