I am in pharmacy school, and therefore have many lecture notes posted online, usually in PDF format, but also word documents..

I was wondering if anyone had any good suggestions on an app that would allow me to either drag and drop from desktop to ipad, or sync through itunes somehow so I can get these documents on my ipad as files??

Thanks!

yep +1

So I downloaded the app, and was able to easily transfer files to my ipad..

However when I try to open a powerpoint file, the app closes..

And it has done so numerous times..?

Have you tried a different .ppt file? Try one of a completely different nature just incase there is some complex formatting or something in the previous causing the crash.

Yes, some work and some dont...

The larger files are the ones that cause the app to crash..

Not sure what is happening but I want my 99 cents back!

How large is large? If they are too large, your only option may be to jailbreak and use the page file hack, regardless of the app.
