I have an extensive range of PDF files that wanted to load on an ipad, These are mostly magazine articles. I use Newsstand and the books section of iBooks. I like the way how the PDFs are separated from books, which would be hard to find amongst the 50,000 plus files i have. Itunes will take the first page of the article and make it the cover art. It would appear you can edit the metadata just like an audio or video file. I now be able to ditch the other 4 PDF programs i have on the ipad that also had importing issues for me. Sorry for starting a thread but I'm so happy to find this feature, and just wanted to be sure everybody else that was struggling with PDFs did too. Now, If only I could learn how tp merge in Preview. EDIT i wanted to change the title to "iBooks on a ipad and Itunes on a Mac are perfect for PDF files" but i can't edit the title.
