Can I Download A Pdf To My Ipad
Among the iPad’s features, PDF support is mentioned. You can send the file as an attachment and later on view it in your Mail application. That means you can download PDF files on your iPad, but you need to discover new easy of opening them and editing them, if necessary.
Another in-built possibility is to use the Safari web browser, because if you access a link that redirects you towards a PDF file, the browser it’s able to display the content. Nobody is saying that these in-built possibilities aren’t useful or welcome, but they also come with a few limitations that in time may end up bothering you. For example, if you reopen the same PDF file, you won’t be directed to the last page you’ve read or if there are any links in the document you won’t be able to access them. That means if you have a PDF file that contains hundreds of pages you will have to scroll for minutes in order to reach the page of your interest. These limitations make me feel like Apple should have at least provided a reliable PDF reader if not an editor for PDF files.
Fortunately, the app market that is usually born around devices like Apple’s iPad has noticed the difficulties and has made available a number of apps that allow you to manage your PDF files. An example is GoodReader for iPad. You can find this app in the iTunes store and you can purchase it for a price of $0.99. Besides handling PDF files, this app also supports Office files and allows you to open images and audio and video files. It’s even the right tool for transferring files, so you will be able to download all the PDF files you need through one of the many methods available. You can use Google Docs, iTunes if you like direct transfers or WebDAV servers. These are just a few examples.
There are also a few features that you will most likely love about this app. For example it allows you to store your PDF files in a Dropbox folder. That makes it easier for you to manage your files, because for copying them on your iPad you will only need to enter your credentials and click on the files you’re interested in. In addition, GoodReader is able to remember the last page you accessed the last time you opened the file and it provides a number of buttons designed for navigation purposes. You can also zoom in the content for a more comfortable reading activity.
