Disclaimer: The app is still a preview release, but is *definitely* worth trying out.
For those who have been waiting for someone to take the initiative and put together a *good* PDF reader app for WP8, the wait is over. A developer by the Store name of 'Pompolutz' appears to be the most serious entrant into this arena. I came across his app, 'PDF Reader,' while browsing through the 'New and Rising' apps in the Windows Phone store.
PDF Reader | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (Canada)
It's still in its initial phases (a preview release), according to the app developer, but (IMO) it's already miles ahead of the other main PDF reader app in the store simply on account of the fact that it supports bookmarks.
It's free, BTW.
Download it, use it, rate it, encourage the developer to keep up the good work!
'Big name' apps are great and all, but WP8 still needs some good quality bread-and-butter apps like this.

I posted this thread in the WP8 apps forum (because I thought that was the most appropriate place for it) but decided to cross-post here because I have a Lumia 920 and want my fellow L920ers to know about this app.
I know this topic of the lack of a *good* PDF reader in the WP store has been discussed here, before. Accordingly, some of you might be interested to find out that progress is being made.

I can only see files on Skydrive. Nothing in "Local". And no way to download ...
My mistake. It is available in Local after opening it on Skydrive.
"Jump to page" will always jump to current page. Bug?
Missing Search (Find) function.
Otherwise: Works well

Mother of God, thanks developer!!! If I were them, I'd charge for this. Its the only one that doesn't suck. Crazy not to charge, even if its just a buck. MS's app is extremely bad.
Thanks for posting this. The WPC guys should do an article on this app. Everyone who uses PDF files should know about this.
