You could use the Google PDF viewer. It embeddeds a PDF given its URL in an online viewer. Then, you just have to use the resulting URL in the iframe src. Change the url query param with the URL of your PDF:

https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http://www.pdf995.com/samples/pdf.pdf&embedded=true
Answer

You can use A Document Viewer cordova/phonegap plugin for iOS and Android plugin for showing pdf within you application.

Answer

Don't use iFrames on mobile, especially Cordova apps. My suggestion would be to use the InAppBrowser Plugin cordova.InAppBrowser.open('http://linktopdf.com', '_blank', 'location=yes'); (will open the native safari viewer for iOS).

Getting this to work on Android is a bit more complicated. You can use the same approach above but swap _blank with _system. This downloads the PDF to the device through the default browser. The second, more involved approach for Android is to download the pdf file to the filesystem through a plugin in the app, and then open it through the default pdf reader.
