Default Gamebook programs for tablet running android

I have a S716TAB serioux tablet, running android. I cannot find a program that i can use with the gamebooks from Abandonia. Like you can click to go to the page number in the gamebook story and so.

Now since the section numbers are not linking to the sections in the .pdf files itself, the only way to go to the desired section is to manually scroll there. By the way, if these books were printed, you would have to turn the pages to the sections anyway. That's all I can tell you, maybe someone else has a better idea.

Some of the gamebooks may have been prepared like that, but if one was not then no software program will automagically add that feature.

With the freeware programme Calibre one can convert PDF to .epub or .pdb in order to use gamebooks properly. Considering that the books concerned are essentially out of copyright (albeit not legally so if the rights of the authors aren't deliberately relinquished), converting the things to various formats can only increase demand, which may enable the authors to claim a small income from the royalties if they so choose

Perhaps a shared Dropbox folder would be a useful in the future
