    I've been using GoodReader to get my PDF fix on, and it's just not doing it for me. Here is what I'm looking for in a PDF reader:

    Can handle huge, graphics-heavy files

    Can scroll smoothly from one page to the next

    Can search through the text of a PDF

    Can handle editable PDFs, including ones with equations in them

    Ability to add annotations

    Are there any PDF programs for iPad like this?

    I think that would depend on the ipads hardware and not goodreader. I've been using good reader for PDFs and i've noticed that it lags a bit when the page has a large image file in it. I just figured it's cause of my iPad.

    I've already got Papers, and I love it for my journal articles. But I'm looking for something that can easily import other PDFs.

    iAnnotate Maybe?

    I also have Good Reader but have been reading the reviews on iAnnotate and seems to be what you are looking for. I'm considering making the purchase because of the ability to add notes.
