I need to download online PDFs I find from my iPhone to my iPhone...

Readdledocs doesn't seem able to download those PDFs...

Is there an app that can do that?

I'm fairly sure iStorage (http://linktoapp.com/iStorage) does this.

I second this. I use iStorage all the time, it's great. Another very useful app would be Folders.

Safari will open PDF links. :)

Readdledocs does download online PDFs, for some reason it didn't recognize the PDF as a PDF and tried to download it as a text document, but after I scrolled down the entire document it did. iStorage works well too, but since I'm running out of space for apps, Readdledocs it is, for the Readdle service of forwarding documents I get as email attachmetd to Readdle and then being able to download the document to Readdledocs.

iDownload (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=300063294&mt=8).

OP said he wants to download the PDF, not just view it.

iDownload (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=300063294&mt=8).

I have this one too. It's a lot less versatile though. I think iStorage, Readlle, and Folders are able to download a lot more different types of files. But, just for PDFs, iDownload is probably fine.

ReaddleDocs is superior to iStorage when it comes to downloading stuff. If you are browsing the web using Safari and find a pdf file that you want to download, all you have to do is modify the address from http:// to rhttp:// and it automatically opens up that address in the ReaddleDocs web browser.

iDownload has a javascript for this, too.

Actually, you can do this in iStorage as well. Just change the http://... to ihttp://... while in Safari and it will automatically open this page in iStorage.

Or you can use Readdledocs for this task.
It also does a lot of other things as one of the best file management solutions for iPhone.

QuickLeech will let you download them and view them.

It seems like there's lots of apps with similar functionality so I need some opinion in which one is better.

I've been using iStorage to email files that I have on my iDisk. But I want an app that also allows me to easily transfer files from my Mac to my iPhone, in addition to allowing to access my iDisk, emailing files and possibly downloading files too.

Which one would you suggest?
