Sharing pdfs with multiple users on iPhone and Android platforms. Dropbox the only option?

My company is looking to share price lists (which are constantly updated and stored on our network share) with all the sales people. These are scans with an abundance of pictures in them. We have a mix of iPhones and Androids and we're trying to find the easiest, most cost effective way to do this.
We thought about just making a simple share and shortcutting it on their home screens, but we don't want to create/maintain that many VPN users (which would be the obvious answer for mobile).
We thought about a simple ftp site, but we don't really want to take the time to build that out and maintain it.
Dropbox seems like the obvious answer, but I've got questions I cannot seem to find elsewhere.
1) Could I use one account which all the users would login on their respective phones. Is there a limit to this? Can I have 30-40 apps all logged into the same account?
1) To avoid tampering with the file structure could I create two accounts, #1 which shares out the folder to #2 (without permission to write), and then have everybody login to #2?
