    Had my iPad for about a week and am loving it. Recently installed Good Reader (after reading about it here), I have some PDF documents in my iBook "shelf" - how can I open those documents with Good Reader?
    Thanks

    As far as I know/can tell, iBooks does not support opening PDFs in other apps. The only way I can see to get a PDF off the iPad (while on the iPad) is to e-mail it.

    So, either do that or hook the iPad up to iTunes and then - after transfering purchases! - the PDF should show up in your iTunes on your PC. Then, you can either drag 'n' drop it to one of your other apps or save it to some sort of iPad-accessible cloud storage to open [in a different app] on your iPad.

    Wow - that ended up being a bit convoluted. But, that's the only way I know. If that doesn't help, or I'm missing an easier way, sorry.
