    I have this public site (jw.org) that has the Awake! Mag in PDF format. I down load the magazine ...all 32 pages .. Can see and read it. But how do I save it some where on my device so as to bring it up, say, in iannotate or one of my other Apps. Any help would be much appreciated

    if its in pdf you can just drop it into the iBook section of iTunes, it will open in the pdf panel of the iBook app.

    I must be doing something wrong at the site. When there I simply check the magazine I want in the PDF format. It immediately comes up on the iPad and I can scroll to a page, but am stuck there

    Is there someone who can go to the site and tell me if this can be done or not from there so I do not waste any more time trying. I simply would like to down load any PDF magazine to the iPad and bring it up in one of my apps

    Here is what I did...

    I downloaded the magazine from the website on my PC so now it is sitting in my Downloads folder (but it could be somewhere else on your computer). I right-clicked on the the file and selected Copy.

    Then I hooked up my iPad to my computer and started iTunes.

    At the top of the screen, I clicked on Edit then Paste. Now if you look under Books under the Library choices, you will see the magazine.

    Now sync your iPad.

    Open the iBooks app and select Libaray in the upper left corner and select PDFs and you will see your magazine!

    Thanks Scott
    Appreciate your efforts. If you find someplace on the device where it might be ... Please let me know. Otherwise it's looks like it can't otherwise be done without going to the PC

    Unfortunately, you cannot do it from the Ipad, it a PITA. The only way is to download/save on a PC and e-mail it to yourself or drop it into Itunes and sink.

    Easy! Use Goodreader.
    Go to "Browse the Web" or "Enter Url" and it opens your page, simply download. You can save it anywhere you wish on the iPad, I prefer iBooks but that's my taste.

    (waiting for Kindle supporters to voice their objections):p

    You are the most! Lot's of time wasted on this one before you came along. Scott, hold back one of my gold stars and give it to Ivan. Need to make a note of how we did this too.

    Thanks again all, especially iVan & Scott

    Thanks for the reminder about GoodReader! I recently received a $15 iTunes GC as a tip from a customer after doing some custom work on his S2000 headlights. Just ticked the first $1.99 off that GC redemption :cool:

    Scott...remember how we were baffled trying to figure this one out .. Well ...fiddling a little I found that tapping on the magazine brings up the choice of opening the PDF in iannotate. So problem solved without having to go through Goodreader
