    Just today I purchased an Objective-C programming book from the internet in PDF format. After that, I bough "Annotator" for iPhone so I could read the eBook. I set it up perfectly - and the entire eBook shows up BLANK!!!!

    I just assumed that Annotator wasn't very good, so I went and paid a little extra for "Files".

    Again, I set it up perfect, but the eBook still shows up blank!!!!

    Did I just waste $40? (eBook, Files and Annotator)

    Please help me!!

    I don't exactly have an answer to your question, but rather a suggestion. I don't know how long Stanza has been out for the iPod/Touch (iTouch if it annoys you), but it's really awesome and the best solution I've come across for ebooks so far. Their desktop app allows you to make PDFs into ebooks readable by Stanza. It's currently free and all, so no cost to try it out.

    One of the best features is how customizable you can make your books. You can customize font, text size, text and background colour, spacing between the lines of text, etc. It really allows you to customize to your preferences.

    Stanza is in the app store and here is their website if you wanna check it out: http://www.lexcycle.com/

    As a disclaimer, I have nothing to do with the program or anything, just a satisfied user.

    I though that youre suggestion would work, but it turns out the reason my eBook shows up blank is becuase the place I bought it from password protected it so it couldn't be printed, edited, or transfered onto any devices!!!

    I've tried a few PDF password crackers, but none worked. I also tries copying the text, but it won't let me!!

    What do I do now??:confused:

    I've always had success with that one.

    It just doesn't work. I really need to get rid of the password though.
