    I have been using evernote only really to hold PDF copies of all my various user guides/operating manuals so i can view them on Mac and iPad, now i have upgraded my Mac and iPad to the latest operating systems i have decided that i would make use of the iCloud drive feature. I plan to add a folder to iCloud drive which will hold all of my PDF manuals/userguides. Is there an apple app on iPad that will be able to let me read these PDF files from iCloud drive (I've tried ibooks but this oddly doesn't let me access iCloud drive) or if not what are the best recommendations of other apps on the app store for this task?

    Ive noticed that on my Mac spotlight will search these documents that are in the iCloud drive folder, from what i can see this cannot be done on iPad? spotlight search on iPad will not search iCloud drive is this correct?

    I have Adobe reader already on my iPad but as far as I can see there is no way to select pdf files that are stored in iCloud Drive.

    Goodreader can do this, as well as being a very capable all round pdf reader for the iPad.
