How To Download Pdf Files With Ipad
Many iPad users enjoy browsing the net, reading emails and using amazing apps on their tablet. If you are wondering if you have the possibility to download PDF files on your iPad you should know that this action is possible thanks to a few available apps and methods. Actually, downloading a PDF file involves two actions: transferring the files on the tablet and viewing the files on the device. Here are the apps that can help you download and open PDF files on your Apple tablet.
My first suggestion is the mail app. You need to email the PDF document to yourself and then open it as email attachment. The iPad’s default mail app is actually able to open the file and then allow you to download it on your device in just a few seconds. However, there are a few disadvantages involved when using the default mail app of your iPad to download and open PDFs. I’m talking about the impossibility to make notes, add annotations and save changes.
A second possibility that allows you to download and view PDF documents on your iPad is to use iTunes 10. If you didn’t know iTunes has the capacity to copy videos, music and even PDF files to your tablet. In order to use iTunes 10 to download PDFs you will have to follow a few simple steps. First, you need to open iTunes and copy the targeted PDF document to the iTunes Library. Once this action is complete you can read your PDF file by using the iBooks app already installed on your iPad. I also need to mention that a number of iPad owners have reported problems when using iBooks to read PDFs. So, keep in mind that you might face inconveniences if you decide to use this method.
You can also download PDF files on your iPad with the help of a free app called Stanza. This app was developed by LexCycle and allows you to download/read PDFs and any other documents on your iPad. You can use this method in various ways. The simplest way is to email the PDF document to your email account and then open it as email attachment. When you will try to open it, a message will appear on the screen asking you if you want to transfer the file to Stanza. Once the transfer process is finished you can read the file, add bookmarks and make any changes inside it without worrying that the changes won’t be saved.
These are only a few of the methods and apps that you can use to download and read PDF documents directly on your iPad. Don’t forget about the iPad’s web browser.
