    Is this possible? I want to make a .doc into a PDF, is there an app that does this?

    Any you recommend?

    Cheers

    Absolutely - Pages can save as either .doc or .pdf and so can Numbers and Keynote.

    No problem!!

    Ah ok thanks Tim! So I can open a Doc in goodreader, then 'open in' pages, save as PDF in pages then 'open in' goodreader?

    Cheers

    Caveat - you can save it in Pages, but not back to GoodReader directly. I go via Apple's MobileMe iDisk, but WebDAV or iTunes works just fine.

    Yes, in Goodreader, select Connect to Servers (located on the right-hand side), than tap on Add, choose Dropbox, enter your dropbox account. Now the dropbox account will appear in the server list and you can download any file.

    I open a document from Dropbox, read it, edit with Pages... Up to now everything wonderful.

    My problem is that I just can't find the way to save my document into Dropbox again.

    Do you know how to do it?

    To integrate Dropbox into Pages/Numbers/Keyboards, you will need to use a service, such as Dropdav http://www.dropdav.com/.

    All you need to do is set up an account with them (if your Dropbox account is free, then Dropdav is also free, otherwise it costs 30% of the Dropbox subscription). After you create an account there, just go to Pages, select Copy to WebDav and set the server to https://dav.dropdav.com, and for the user name and password, use the dropbox account credentials.

    Easy setup and works a treat.

    I Guess every time more and more that iPad is just the beginning. It is no doubt the computer of the future.
    Goodbye PC, goodbye laptops...
