    Is the Ipad capable of receiving large pdf files and how do they look on screen?

    Use Goodreader and see for yourself, I believe it is free.

    Thank you. I do not have an Ipad but I am considering and researching. I have rather large table-heavy pdfs I would like to be able to view on a reader or Ipad

    I use my iPad to read large PDF documents, up to 200 pages so far. I access them through Dropbox and read them with Goodreader or Docs to Go. Tables look just fine. IBooks now also reads pdf's and looks good.

    I have been translating files out of Indesign to Dreamweaver as html files for a while to be read on a kindle and last I looked kindle can not read pdfs.

    Ebooks, you mean for the sony reader?

    I tried a large and heavy graphic PDF on my iPod Touch 2nd geneneration and it transferred fine using iTunes but refused to open on iBooks. On the iPad it opened fine.

    The GoodReader is 99¢, but the iBooks app will also do PDF's.... and its FREE. All you do is open iTunes (makes sure its the latest and greatest - v9.2.0.61) and click on Books on the left side of the screen. Now open your Explorer (This is in Windows. I don't know how to find files in a Mac.) and locate the files you want to copy. Now you can either drag the file from your Explorer window to the Books window or just copy & paste. Sync your iPad and voila... you now have PDF's! I just did this and if a Windows person can do it, how hard can it be???

    Frankly, I wasn't a big fan of the iBooks app... until now!
