    Im using Idisk with mobile me and have some pdfs in my idisk folder. I noticed that when the pdf opens, it downlods the file and then when i try to zoom it gets stuck and delays etc. not sure why.
    Any other apps that works with preview files without issues.
    Especially like it when im in a no internet zone on abroad, i can access my files.

    Yes, AirSharing is the way to go. Zooms in and out nicely as well.

    Air Sharing is definitely a good option. And check out quickoffice which also has iDisk access/downloading.

    I noticed recently that the iDisk app doesn't work when abroad with data roaming turned off. When I tried to open files I had previously downloaded to my iphone and cached, (i.e. in "recents"), I kept getting unknown error pop-ups and the file wouldn't load. It did work however if I switched the phone into airplane mode! WTF is that about, surely they would have tested this kind of thing?! Dumbass apple.

    Oh yeah, and ReaddleDocs/OneDisk from Readdle both have iDisk access and local storage.
