"Open in..." options
Now that I have numerous apps that will open all different types of documents on my iPad2, I noticed that the Open in... options will only display 10 apps. But I haven't found a way to control which apps I want to display in the Open in... options. So my question is... how can I control which apps are displayed when I want to open different documents?
There is no way to control this. When you install an app, that app can register its ability to process a certain file type with the iPad's operating system, iOS. Then, when you get that 'Open in' option, iOS uses the apps that have registered their ability. Unfortunately, iOS does not provide the user with the ability to control this list - other than by uninstalling the apps that can process a file type.

I did call apple and left my request for "the right to choose!" (LOL) on their feedback page. I'm in the process of doing training and I purchase a lot of apps just to try them out. I end up with many that sort of do the same thing. And when you're trying to find that "perfect" app - it just would be nice to be able to select without having to delete some of the apps first. Thanks for getting back to me though!
