And I can't believe how silly you're being in a thread *devoted* to the mini. I don't disagree that the full sized iPad displays differently (I chose to ignore that irrelevant comment, given this thread is about the mini and viewing PDFs on it) - I used to own a full sized iPad, so I'm well aware of what the increased screen size means.
This thread is about PDFs on the mini. I have tried them (it's the number one reason I bought the mini - I own a Kindle, and while I love, love, love that device, it's crap at viewing PDFs - not a fault of the Kindle, that's just not its forte), today I even read a few PDFs on my new mini (for school), and the whole time I was comfortable on my sofa thinking to myself how wonderful it is to hold a device the size of the mini and read PDFs without even having to zoom in. That to me is amazing, I love this device and the fact I can read PDFs on it (even academic ones).

I've currently got Good Reader, and it's got some great features, but at the same time I'm considering getting an app that better syncs with a desktop PDF programme. I was using Skim, but recently got PDFpenPro which seems quite good (on the desktop), and there is an iPad version, which I assumed might complement their desktop version better.
I read a lot of PDFs for school, and annotation is what I would like to be able to do. Good Reader does annotations (I'm just getting to know all it can do) and I have no complaints, I just thought perhaps another programme would be better. I've read good things about iAnnotate, and PDF Expert too, was wondering if you have any experience with any others, or more details about iAnnotate and why you like it so much. Thanks in advance!
