    Welcome, you gotta get GoodReader for your business. Think of it as My Documents for the iPad, and allows you to drag and drop files into the iPad. It is also the visually best PDF viewer there is - I did a test once.

    Best file app

    I use and really like iAnnotate for PDF. Can't decide on general file app; FileBrouser, FileApp, GoodReader??? Also have Everynote, but want to "see" files.

    Heh even if you see them, apple renames them something obscure.
    Wonder why that is, don't they trust us?

    Happy here with GoodReader as their usb app is fast to use.

    File app

    I'll give GoodReader a try. The apps are so reasonably priced anyway. In fact the pricing for iPad and iPod apps is remarkable.
