1. Due to the recent site upgrade, the iPadForums (iPF) App will no longer work. The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

Is there an app for that?

    I was wondering if there was an app out there that allows you to import a document, such as PDF, etc, and you are able to write or type on top of it? Like if you wanted to make notations, etc.?

    Either GoodReader or iAnnotate will allow that...



    There is a program that most all iPad users have called GoodReader. It's the 'Swiss Army Knife' for the iPad and it can store files all together and in folders - or however you want them - and can transfer files to and from your PC using either WiFi or USB without the need for iTunes. It's built in web-browser can download files too, something that Safari doesn't offer - except for PDF format. From within GoodReader you can open those files in any app that supports that type of file. Having said that, though, when a compatible app does open that file it makes a local copy that it works on, so the original copy in GoodReader is left untouched. If you want to store the modified file in GoodReader you have to transfer it back there by some means.

    GoodReader can also attach several files to an email and then send them using the iPad's native Mail app - something you can't do from within Mail itself. It also gives you the opportunity to annotate PDF files and save the resulting file so that it can be read on a PC or Mac.

    Okay, now I am looking for the best app that is very comparable to quicken. It would need to allow me to download transactions from my bank online, schedule bills and reoccurring bills, give me an online balance, current balance, and ending balance (if I had budgeted transactions). Will also let me enter transactions for different checking and savings accounts as well as credit cards, and have a backup that I can install on my PC to sync the info. I am currently using quicken 2011 on my PC, but would love to solely use my iPad and not have to rely on the PC for my finances. I have read some of the reviews for Money for iPad and Checkbook for iPad, not sure which is the best or if there is something even better. Thanks in advance!!

    Sorry, I don't use a Quicken like app. I've heard Mint.com is good, but have not bothered to look into it, other than to notice they don't' have an iPad optimized app. You'd have to use the iPhone one, or the web site.

    I don't use an iPad app, but I read good reviews for pageonce.
