    I used Stanza for most of my ebooks and adore it, but I need something to view pdfs. Does anyone know what is the best pdf viewing app for iPhone? I don't really care about cost, as long as it does its job well.

    Air Sharing, actually does the job quite well in addition to its over the air file transfers. $4.99 is great for all of the things that it does!

    I personally fid Air Sharing a tad on the slow side, but so are most of them. I am about to delete air sharing as i have found a suitable replacement - TextGuru not only can you see PDF's but you can make your own text docs and html and all sorts of things. I can download pdf's or most any link/doc from the web (can't do in Air sharing, but can do in folders also) Text Guru has copy and Paste features - I use the app for all my notes. Works great also for a list of phone numbers that you don't use enough to want to clutter your address book but may use now and then - just click the link when web preview is enabled and it calls.

    It supports file organizing - I can make new folders and copy entire doc into that folder for better organization.

    It has several way to get docs onto the iphone and supports many formats. I got it when it was $.99 but it is well worth the asking price now (I think they ask $4.99)

    Over all a great app!! Great support - constantly adding features and bug fixes.

    I tried AirSharing and agree with whoever said it was a tad on the slow side. Right now I just upload my .pdfs to Google Docs and then open them up through Safari. It's not ideal, but this is the best solution I've found. I'll pay a reasonable amount for a better solution if I can find one. I don't think Readdle has a free/lite version, but I think it's received good reviews.
