    It's brilliant :)

    What did you want to use it for?

    I was thinking of using it to access and share my files via Dropbox, or some other filesharing site/program. Also, it is supposedly capable of having the IPad read PDFs, txt and other files of that nature. I was hoping it could deal with JPGs, too. Thanks.

    I use it as my primary pdf reader, and it will handle jpegs also. It's easy to use. I usually add documents in iTunes under the Apps tab.

    It's an excellent App. Its one of those "must have" apps for iOS devices.

    Can you "edit" a PDF in Goodreader? I thought you could, but I haven't been able to do anything but view. I haven't spent time trying to figure it out, though.

    If not, what's a good app to "edit" a PDF in? (I know PDF is essentially not editable.) I know TakeNotes lets you write, scribble, etc., on a copy of a PDF, but I am wondering whether there's an app that lets you type atop a PDF copy and then email it. (Like if someone sent you a PDF form and you want to fill out and return.) I don't want to handwrite; I want to type, because my handwriting with a stylus looks like a stroke patient's writing.)

    I just checked, and Goodreader will not let you type on a pdf. It will let you highlight, add notes, underline, strikethrough, etc.

    iAnnotate will let you type on a PDF, along with all the rest (highlight, add notes, etc).

    Then, when you are done annotating (to include typing), you can either e-mail the document or upload to Dropbox. Also, you can either send it "flattened" (changes are baked in with no more changes possible) or not.

    It's a very good app for working with PDFs. Lots of neat stuff it can do (more than I remember or am very familiar with...).

    Thanks for checking, Foxtail.

    Thanks for the iAnnotate recommendation, Marilyn. I will check it out.

    Thanks again, Marilyn. I bought iAnnotate and have filled out and emailed paperwork while waiting for a flight. Excellent.
