    Hey guys, i just need help with my PDF readers. When i transfer PDF files from laptop to iPad it goes straight to my iBooks. Now as i was testing my various Apps i saw that i have GoodReader, Adobe Reader and PDF Reader... I'm sure they're all great PDF readers BUT i somehow can't use them to open my PDF files. I open any of my PDF reader App and i couldn't find any of the files found in my iBooks. To sum it all up, i can only locate and open them in iBooks.

    Is there any way for my PDF reader Apps to locate my files? I just wanna use themso in case i need to edit PDF i can do so. Thanks for your help guys and more power to IPF.

    are you transferring those PDF files to Adobe reader, PDF reader and Goodreader directly? Transferring them to Ibook will only allow you to open it on ibook unless you add them to the PDF readers you mentioned.

    I see... Pardon the question but... How do you transfer the pdf files to those Apps rather than iBooks? It seems that when i click and drag the file from my desktop folder to iTunes it automatically goes to iBooks... Sorry... Very new to iOS so still learning the ropes...

    when your ipad is connected to itunes, click on your ipad, hit the app tab, then scroll down you'll find two boxes. left box contains the apps where you can put files. for example, you choose goodreader, tap that one. then the box on the right side opens where you can put the pdf file you wanted. ;) or other files.

    Email the files to yourself, open mail on ipad, select where you want the file to open. Voila.

    Emailing to yourself might work very well, but not possible in a corporate environment with email attachment size limits. My company only allows attachments <10 MB, and I regularly have to read PDFs which are 100 MB +.

    I recommend you learn the method j0yful has described above - that's the foolproof way to do it, and you can copy it directly to the app that you want.
