If you want to view and markup PDF's on your iPad I would highly suggest this app. It is not free but as with most things you have to pay to get an app that is this powerful. Currently the app costs $4.99 and that price is a great deal.

The app is very easy to use. Just download a PDF into the app either from sources like your email account, server on a network, URL on the internet etc. Once you import into the app you can organize into a folder in the app or just leave in the main file folder. The app has a search feature to find file,  a preview option to look at the file before you open and many more options.
GoodReader not only supports massive PDF and TXT files, but also handles the most popular file types:
  • MS Office - .doc, .ppt., .xls
  • iWork ’08/’09
  • HTML and Safari webarchives
  • High resolution images
  • Even audio and video!

If you have an Android phone (and thus have Gmail) and have not made the switch from Outlook to a web based email tool then this is a must have program on your PC. This program will allow you to sync your calendars, contacts, notes and tasks to Gmail so that you can access them on your Android based phone. If you enter a contact on your phone it will show up on your Outlook contacts etc. The program is $19.99 but is definitely worth the cost. There are so many settings and options that I will not go into detail about all of them here but you can visit their website for a full run down.


If you have this program or give it a try let me know what you think.
