    I'm trying to make my own app for my own use. I am not going to sell it. I'm in sales and am going to use my iPad to show off products, like a brochure on iPad. I currently use Goodreader but I don't like the way it works. Everything I'm doing should be pretty low-level, like "how to I make a word link to another page on my app? or How do I make an image link to another page?" (the image question was answered thanks!!) I'm sure this is stuff most users know here, but rather bother people with stupid posts, I'm wondering if there a website that has the basic information like the above. Thanks!

    Google. If it's been asked before, using the proper search terms will yield the answer. If it hasn't been asked before, then you aught to ask so that people who ask and search in the future can have it answered.

    My main reference is Apple's official documentation.

    This sounds like functionality you could get from a PDF? Are you sure you need to build an app?

    Thanks! I saw that post but I also noted it was from 2008 and wasn't sure if it was out of date.

    ----------

    Tried that and I "think" an app would work better, more fluid. PDFs can be a bit clunky. Plus, I think it would be cool to try building an app. The only way to get it on my iPad is to pay the $99 Developer fee, correct? I already registered, have Xcode and SDX, but not sure if I needed to go the whole $99 way. Thanks!!

    The original post in that thread was last updated Jul 17, 2012. I think it's still pretty relevant. If you find information in there that you feel is outdated, please let the MacRumors admins know (via Contact Us) and they'll look into it.

    Save yourself the $99. Work with the simulator for now (it's free.)

    Dejo,

    Right now I'm using several different PDFs from several different companies to demonstrate products to clients, and doing so within Goodreader. So, I have to go back and forth to different PDFs and it's clumsy. Now, I can take all the pdfs and assemble them as one, but then the file size is pretty big and is still clumsy. Not sure if it is GoodReader or the PDF. Do you have a recommendation for a pdf viewer that might work better?

    Thanks!

    Acrobat pro will let you set relative references to other files. Which will work in many of the PDF apps.
