Hi,

In IPhone got the option to open with.
F.e. a pdf with office or Drop box.
In android it always opens with a pdf viewer and don't ask me with what app to open. How can I change that? Please advise.

You only get this option if you actually installed multiple apps to really open that file. If you really did, the expert above have the correct answer. If you didn't, this is expected behavior.
And in that case, you're confused with the Share function. In all File Managers, after selecting one or more files, it's either the Share function in the menu, or the Share icon (3 dots, connected by 2 lines).
Because of the limited eco system in iOS, opening and sharing were seen as one, which isn't that logical, and that's why in Android you actually have this choice.
