Any Alternatives for GoodReader for Android?

Comment by Sisee
about GoodReader May 2015

Fist of all, I am sorry if this is in the wrong section, I'm unfamiliar with this forum layout.

I recently purchased an Android tablet, with the hopes of it being a replacement for my iPad.

One of the many uses I have for a tablet is being able to access and read PDF files stored on my Mac.

GoodReader has a built in system to alow this. As well as having access to numerous online servers.
It's the local server access I'm specifically looking for.

My Mac is set to host specific folders as both AFP and SMB servers.
I understand that getting AFP access on a non-Apple device may not be possible, but surely SMB is.

I have tried over a dozen different PDF readers today.
None of them capable of accessing a local host.
Some of them have options for online servers, but not SMB or any other local hosts.

If anyone is familiar with GoodReader, you'll know of what I mean.
All I want is a relatively simple interface, but options to download or access files stored locally on my Mac.

I am open to any suggestions.
But all of the suggested alternatives that an online search gave are without the feature I'm looking for.
