    Hi guys
    I really need help
    I'm looking for an Ipad App (Don't know if it exists)
    I need it to read PDF files
    I want to be able to load PDF files into it and that it would display the covers like so:
    2011-09-13_144556.jpg
    and when you select an image it will open the entire pdf for browsing like a book

    If there is an option to annotate them it will be great!
    Please HELP!

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :) Some clarification might help - on my iPad Air 2, I use either iBooks or GoodReader to store and read PDF files - but you seem to want to load 'individual' PDF files for each book and then have an app show them in kind of the 'cover flow' viewing mode of OS X, and finally be clickable to view the selected PDF - let us know if my interpretation is correct? If not please explain further - Dave

    My understanding is that you want to display the pdf books as shown in the photo - i.e. It is the bookshelf display that is important. I don't know of anything that does this, but if this is what you want, then perhaps someone will come up with a solution. Btw, very nice bookshelf layout. Any good at programming....?

    I have two ebook reader apps that display my books in cover flow format like you want but unfortunately neither allows downloading PDF documents. iBooks and Kindle are both excellent for viewing PDFs, but don't utilize the cover flow arrangement.

    Does 'Flow- the PDF Reader' do what you want?

    Hello again - thanks for the information; the two PDF readers that I mentioned are not going to accomplish your goal(s) - another poster made a suggestion - I believe that you'll have to wait for others to respond who may have a specific recommendation or search for PDF programs in the App Store - sorry. Dave :)

    I'm curious. Is there a specific reason you want or need the cover flow interface?

    I agree PDF Reader Pro is an excellent PDF reading and annotation app; but it does not have a cover flow view. And I don't know of any PDF reader that does.

    The reason I asked the OP why this view was needed was so we could, maybe, offer suggestions that would work just as well, if not the same. But without a reply, we have no idea if PDF Reader Pro or any other PDF app is acceptable.
