    PDF reader apps for iPad 2?

    Hi all guys & gals. First of all I would like to say I'm very excited to be a new member of ipadforums. I've just received an iPad 2 from my brother as a gift because he bought the new iPad last week. Anyway, this is the first time I have owned an iOS device, so there are so much things I couldn't figure out yet. One of those things is that I am looking for an PDF reader apps. Because I'm still a student, I do read a lot of books I've already downloaded iBooks & Adobe Readers but they both have problems in reading books. While iBooks has great speed & smooth, it lacks of PDF basic annotate tools like highlight or note-taking tools. Adobe Readers has more tools but it's really slow.

    So could you suggest me what app I should download (or purchase)? I've searched the Appstore and find out iAnnotate, Goodreader & PDF reader pro have a lot of possitive comment and high rating, but I still need some reviews . Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad English though

    I use GoodReader which is greater apps. Ring a student myself, my personal preference is to not use the iPad as a textbook. While it is a great device for note taking I can't say the same for reading textbooks. I found it annoying to be have to memorize the page that I would need to flip too, while if you have a textbook it's a lot easier.

    Regardless, GoodReader is possibly one of the best if not the best apps out there that can read PDFs and do everything you're looking for.

    Thanks man. I watched some screenshot of GoodReader on AppStore but it seems the app's UI isn't good.
    ANW what about iAnnotate or other apps, guys?

    It is hard to beat GoodReader. The UI won't take long to master and GR offers lots of other functionality as well. It isn't that expensive, so you should give it a try. Just don't expect to master all it will do for you after a few minutes with it.

    Thanks for the helpful advice. I've downloaded GoodReader last night and at the moment I'm digging into the app. Goodreader UI is a bit ugly but I guess that's why it's really fast in rendering PDF

    Btw I also found a free app called "PDF Max" that has many possitive rating and a overall of 4.5 stars . However it's quite clear that the rating system of AppStore is not trustworthy sometimes, because the app is not really that excellent/
