There must be a way to simply open a pdf in an app. Thats all. Hit the button for the app - pdf opens. Let the built in pdf code handle paging back and forth in the book. I have been going rounds trying to figure out how to code a simple comic book into an app. Is it not possible to wrap the pdf into an app? Would the store allow this to be sold? I know graphic novels are sold, but is the method of presenting called into question?
Thanks

I'd think that people would expect you (especially if you want to sell it) to do better than just present the comic using the PDF viewer -- the PDF viewer is a little on the cumbersome side for navigation, isn't it?

Instead of reinventing the wheel, perhaps use Stanza (from Lexcycle, now owned by Amazon) and sell the comic book that way?
