I have a ton of pdf files stored in dropbox folders. These are indexed on my iMac, where I can search through the contents of individual pdf files. However, I can't seem to find a way to do this on my iPad.

Dropbox only offers pdf searching on business accounts, and there is a minimum three user license required for those accounts, which I don't need. Is there an app that might accomplish what I need? I know Evernote does pdf searching, but it doesn't really fit my workflow.

Also, while I'm at it: Is there any way to browse my dropbox files in finder on OS X without downloading them all automatically? I don't really need every single file on my hard drive, but I also don't want to browse files using the dropbox website.

Documents by Readdle can search the contents of iCloud files, but I'm not sure about Dropbox.
