One of my main reasons for getting an iPad was for its ebook functionality. My profession calls for me to read a lot of orthopaedic journals to keep myself updated.I initially contemplated on getting a Kindle 2, but I decided to hold back till the release of the iPad. Now that the iPad has arrived, I immediately tested its functionality in terms of viewing PDFs. I must say that my decision was worth it. After browsing through the various PDF readers available for the iPad, I decided to try out Goodreader, priced at the AppStore for $0.99. Here is a short video of it. Please pardon the video quality because I only used my iPhone in taking it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkWpOV7CHms Here is a link to Goodreader's homepage: http://www.goodiware.com/goodreader.html It is well worth its price. The html uploading via wifi is okay for single file uploads. However if you wish to upload a batch of PDFs, it is best to mount it as a disk by using the "Connect to Server" option in Finder. Another nice feature is that it has preset settings if you want it to connect to your mailbox and download the files directly. I am having problems in trying to download the PDFs directly from my journal website since the site requires authentication prior to downloading. However I don't see this as a big issue since I normally download all of my journals directly to my MBP and then just copy to the iPAD those journals that I need. I hope this enlightens those who have questions about PDF viewing in the iPAD.
