    After looking at the app description it appears editing text is not possible in Goodreader. For documents I created in Word and then saved as a PDF file I would need to make changes in Word and save again as a PDF file before transferring to my iPad.

    This is not an app that appears useful. Or else my half hour spent looking here for an answer to a simple question was time poorly spent. The question is: how can I change the title of a PDF I downloaded into iBooks? I have several essays and books in iBook that I want to sort but they have codes for titles which dont help. One suggestion I found said "pay $5.00 for a particular app. Then I found a posting that said that app doesn't work. So, why spend the money and waste it? Why spend more time looking for an answer that has already taken too much time? I'm a newbie here but not such to computers. What gives?

    1. Open iBooks and go to the folder where all your PDFs are located.
    2. Click the "Edit" option.
    3. When the app gives you the option to move or delete them, simply click on the title of the PDF and you can edit it there. (Make sure you tap near the end of the title so the application knows you are trying to edit the name.

    Relax, there is a way.

    1. Open iBooks and go to the folder where all your PDFs are located.
    2. Click the "Edit" option.
    3. When the app gives you the option to move or delete them, simply click on the title of the PDF and you can edit it there. (Make sure you tap near the end of the title so the application knows you are trying to edit the name.

    Thank you for the post.
    I have been wondering how to do this also.

    I followed your instructions and it worked perfectly.

    Thanks again.
