    I might be wrong, but I thought that ios4 could open mail attachments in a relevant program. I have an email with a PDF attachment, but it just shows the front page of the PDF as an image, it doesn't act as an attached file.

    Mail on the iPad does the same incidentally, even though I have iBooks and goodreader.

    Any ideas?

    When I first got the ipad it was showing pdf's as attachments which I could open with Goodreader now it only shows the first page as does my 3GS and Iphone 4 both running IOS4

    This is a known bug with PDFs only... I'm assuming it will be fixed on 4.0.1 (whatever). I saw it on the 4.0.0 GM. I can't believe this got past testing.... Don't you think they would have tested all file types (extensions)?

    Weird... I have no problem opening a .pdf attachment on my iPhone 4. Shows all pages.
