    Hi ,
    I am new to the forum,my apologies for any mistakes.
    I downloaded a PDF article from my email to my ipad 3 when I try to open the document the "open-in"options do not include goodreader which I think is the best app to open PDF docs. Any ideas on how to add an app to open-in options?
    Thanks

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    You should just be able to press on it and it should give you this option if you have the app. All apps which can open this should appear in the options. Open the PDF within mail and then press the arrow top right and see if it will give you the option here.
    If you don't, try closing the mail app completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly.
    Let us know how you go.
