Need a quick and easy way to view those Inventor Publisher instructions on the go? The folks at AutoDesk has just the thing for you. Simply named AutoDesk Inventor Publisher Viewer, it does exactly what its name implies. Alongside viewing a list of instructions for a certain build, you can follow along with interactive tutorials that makes it easier to work your around the process. You can’t make those instructions with these, but we can’t imagine you’d want to do that on a phone or tablet anyway – that’s what the complex and flexible desktop application is for. More information about features and device compatibility are below. (And yes, this one works just great on Honeycomb devices.) Find it for free on the Android market.
