    I would like to know how to open PDF (ebook) file in dropbox. When I try to open the file it asks to choose an app to open it with, I do not have that or any app that can do that. Any suggestions?
    I am actually trying to transfer the ebook file from the nook app to my iBook app.

    Do you have iBooks installed? If so, dropbox will allow you to "open in" iBooks where you will then have a copy.....or should.

    As Outl4w suggests, iBooks can, for sure, open PDF files but I note that you say you're trying to transfer the book from your Nook app to iBooks. As far as I'm aware, Nook books are not PDF format and cannot be opened in iBooks. Why don't you want to use an app that can read Nook?

    Yes I have iBooks installed. I bought the ebook from the B&N store because it was not available from iBook store. I can read it on the nook app, I am just trying to choose different ways to use the iPad, I would have prefered to read it on iBooks.
    Thanks Outlaw & Tim for your fast responds!

    You just need to download the B&N app either from the B&N site or the app store. It is free You do not need to use Dropbox at all.
