Store and Open PDFs in ESRI App Studio

Is it possible to open local PDFs from within ESRI's AppStudio? I can easily open pdfs and files from web links with "Qt.openUrlExternally('http..." but I need this app to work completely offline.

I've tried the approaches here with no luck: Files and folders

Ultimately, I would want the AppStudio app to appear in the files app, so I could drop new or existing pdfs there via ITunes. Is there a trick to getting the app to appear here, then how would I read/open files from that location?

Maybe there is a better approach?

Thanks
