    Hello all!
    I am having a problem viewing PDFs on my iPad 1 64Gb wifi/3G.
    I currently use Docs to Go Premium or Note Taker HD to view or annotate.
    The PDFs were created with auto cad 9 on a pc. The cad drawings were originally 4-15Mb in size and after plotting them to PDF they range from 400K-7Mb in size. The PDF page sizes are all 32" X48" in size so that the labels walls furniture etc etc are still visible when you zoom in.
    The problem is it takes anywhere from 90-240 seconds to open these drawings. After opening when zooming in it takes another 30-180seconds to render it with smooth enough graphics to read it. The same thing again if I move to another area of the drawing, I have to wait forever until it renders that portion...... So does anyone know of a VERY powerful PDF viewer capable of handling such large PDFs????

    Thanks

    I use Goodreader. It does what I need it to.

    New to the iPad2 - but from my reviews concerning PDF files, Goodreader was the one highly recommended; so the app that I purchased - check their website HERE
