    What's the best PDF reader for the iPad. I like the iBooks PDF reader on the iPhone but it doesn't seem to be integrated into the iPad version (maybe in iOS 4).

    I have good reader and although it's ok I'd prefer something with some nice aesthetics as well as function.

    All recommendations welcome

    It is in the latest iBooks version for the iPad. Open iTunes then click on Books on the left side of the screen. Now drag your PDF's into the Books screen (or copy & paste) and the next time you sync, they will be in iBooks. There is a tab at the top where you select books or PDF's.

    I found this out after buying the Good Reader app for 99¢!

    thanks for that. You can't seem to email the to yourself and import to iBooks like I can on my iPhone running iOS4 but this is fine for now. I've been playing with good reader a little bit more and its not as bad as I thought.

    Thanks again

    iPAD and DRM Protected PDF's

    Hello - Just went down this path with the University of Phoenix, Apple Support and an Apple Store. The store swore up and down there was an iPad app to support DRM protected PDF's (If you are enrolled in UoP, you know all about these password protected files), in the end I was offered my money back on the iPad with no restocking fee. UoP technical response was as follows:
    Thank you for contacting Technical Support. We understand you are unable to
    access eBooks on your iPad.

    The current generation of eReaders (Nook, Kindle, Sony E-reader, iPad) do
    not have the functionality to unlock the Protectedpdf eBooks, the eBooks
    require Adobe Reader and Java. Adobe does not have an authorized app for
    the iPad at this time.

    I just spoke with a technician at Vitrium Systems (the author of ProtectedPDF) and learned that working with Apple to include support for ProtectedPDF documents in iBooks is slow going, and progress is not being made.

    There are two PDF reader applications that are looking to support ProtectedPDF files for the iPad, they are Foxit and Nitro, but no word on current status, and I can't find anything related to Alpha or Beta version software.

    I think best thing is to keep asking Apple, Foxit, and Nitro for a solution.

    My $0.02

    Second to that. It is a very very good app. I have yhe PDF reader and the function is not as good. The only thing that good reader is lack off is there is no annotation function. The pdf reader allow you to book mark too.

    I love good reader give it a go.

    I have lots of medical/pathology journals on PDF format.
