    Select Apps to appear in 'Open In'

    It appears that iPad limits only 10 apps to appear in the 'Open In' menus (e.g., the menu in the mail client). Is there any way of selecting which apps will appear here? E.g., I used to be able to see GoodReader as one of the options, but now it is gone and cannot find a way of getting it back in that menu.

    Try uninstall and reinstall good reader. Maybe it will put it back to the top of the list

    I did think of that and tried, with no success, still goodreader not showing up in the list. It actually shows up for certain types of files (e.g., PPT) but not for PDF. On the other hand some quite irrelevant applications appear in the Open In list for PDF file (e.g., AirShare and iBook).

    Solution to this problem

    Hi,

    I had the same problem on my ipad2.

    I installed a Pdf printer and did not see the Open In option to this app in other apps.

    What you have to do is to uninstall other apps 1 by 1 and after each uninstall you look if your app appears in the Open In option.

    When it appears, you re-install the other apps. The only thing to know is that your other apps will not appear in the open in list because if the limitation of this list.

    So, uninstall and reinstall only apps that are not usefull in the Open In list.

    Hope this helps... I know that your question was posted a long time ago but my answer may help other users ...

    Arnaud

    Open message to Apple:

    Whatever happened to Appendices for the rest of us who don't mind reading a little? I'm not talking "system integration" here, just a very small fraction of what comes up in Windows when you right-click on a file.

    Could we please have a "Productivity" section in Options that will allow us to configure "Open in...", among other mission-critical functions? Having to uninstall apps to clear up that list is highly inconvenient and frustrating, and the iPad tells me I may lose data each time when I do so. Here are my 10 apps that pushed Dropbox and Evernote off the list; which ones should I get rid of, Solomon?

    iBooks
    Quickoffice
    Note Taker HD
    Adobe Reader
    Stanza
    iPrint&Scan
    GoodReader
    Air Sharing
    Kindle

    I think the problem is iBooks. On both my iPod Touch and my iPhone I was unable to solve the problem by deleting other apps. However when I deleted iBooks all my other PDF-related apps reappeared on the Open In list. I now have a choice of 22 apps in the Open In list on my iPod Touch and 17 on my iPhone.
