Rather disappointed. Had hoped IOS 7 would have the ability to read PDF's created using OSX Preview on your IOS device. Just doesn't make sense that Apple would let you create a PDF on your Mac, store it on iCloud but provide no ability to read it on your iPad or iPhone. I bet Good Reader is happy about this though.

Perhaps iBooks will let us sync our pdfs along with our books. We'll have to wait and see once iBooks becomes available in Mavericks.

That was what I was hoping for. But I'm not optimistic. I would have thought that would have been mentioned in yesterdays announcements.

There were a good many new features in iOS 7 that weren't covered in the keynote. Logic says that they will have something in place to address this at final release. Just too big of a hole to leave open for another year.

I sure hope you are right. If I was betting I would think that they would just map PDF's created with Preview to iBooks on both the Mac and IOS versions of iBooks since the apps already have the ability to display PDF's. That would be fine with me. Right now I'm using the Good Reader workaround.

I just installed Mavericks because I assumed this would be one of the new OS's features, but it's not.
