    I know that iPad will only show 10 apps in the 'open in' tab when you are trying to open a document from email, etc. Is
    there any way to change the order of those open in apps? I use evernote a lot and would prefer to open most attachments in evernote, but since I have so many other apps that will read pdf files, evernote no longer appears in the open in list. Thanks!

    Unfortunately, no. It is the way it is.

    However, there is hope because I remember reading somewhere that iOS 6 allows for more apps to show in the "Open In..." feature. So, keep your fingers crossed that this is true. It'll make life easier for us all. :)

    But, for now, I can't bring better news. Sorry.
