I have many PDF books that I purchased from Manning, Pragmatic Programmer and other publishers.
I'm thinking to get iPad for late night reading but there is one issue?
Is it possible to transfer these PDFs to the iPad?
AFAIK, iPad has no USB ports.
And if it is possible to transfer PDFs to it, is it possible to read PDF files on iPad?
So to sum it up:
1. Apple iBook can be used to view PDFs.
2. PDFs can be copied to iPad.
I would like to share with you what I'm thinking about.
I read a lot, some reads require the laptop in case it is about programming and other don't (I have MacBook Pro).
Recently I'm thinking to get an iPhone but the iPad idea passed in front of my mind.
I read a lot and the iPad makes sense but why to get an iPad? I already have a MBP.
So what do you advice me, get an iPhone or an iPad?
GoodReader++ for the existing DropBox integration. I really dig the iPad for some things, although for reading I'm still somewhat partial to my Kindle DX, primarily for battery life and outdoor readability. The lack of iPad multitasking is a real hindrance, and the development model makes me want to ounce myself on the face. Repeatedly. I can't wait for a decent android tablet... Until then, iPad is pretty cool, and is my go-to device until my Lenovo tablet arrives. Or I buy a ModBook :(
I personally don't find it much of an issue now. Apps start up in a snap and usually retain their state well, so the fact that they're not really still running in the background is rather moot. But the update will still be welcome and open up more possibilities.
