    Oh, I'm truly sorry about that. I assumed that isk9 just wanted to view his pdfs.
    To edit you have to go the...expensive way to iAnnotate. I haven't tried it yet.

    Oh he may very well just want to view and read, I was just saying that I discovered that it is not an editing app. As far as I know. I could be wrong.

    I got Pages and that works fine for me.

    Just a bit of advice. Read the entirety of an app's description. When it says 'more', tap on it. I avoid a lot of unnecessary apps or plain junk that way.

    I should have been careful and made sure to list all the apps that fit his query.

    There are a number of apps that can be used to edit PDF files. The op only mentioned opening PDF files, so my first assumption was also that he just wanted to be able to read them, and that may be all he wants. It would be helpful if he would indicate if that is what he wants, or just exactly what he would like to do with PDF files.
