    Default eBook Reader

    I'd like to make a reader, starting with PDF support. Cocoa has PDFKit but I don't think it is in the iPhone's library. Anyways, I have found some headers that reference PDF, but they have includes that aren't in the SDK. I'd like to use the built it pdf viewer so it fits the iphone better. Any ideas on how to do this? I can list all pdf in a dir and select them but what then? Should i keep looking for the pdf viewer or is there a eay to tell it to open the selected file in safari? I think it would then load to the pdf viewer.

    Any ideas or help is welcome.

    what about "books" or "pdf viewer"?
    they work well, pdf viewer is even doing fine with huge pdfs (novel size)

    I have installed PDF viewer but it has a lots of limitations. A 200 book you have to change pages one by one and after 10 pages it closes. ANYONE KNOWS WHY and how o fix it?

    hmm...


    strange, i tested pdf viewer with several pdfs from 150 to 340 pages, never had trouble getting beyond page 10, with sizes all around 1M
    i have no idea whats causing these limitations you report, but I remember having similar trouble earlier (very long times to load pdfs, constant crashes, may be a month ago).

    what version of pdf viewer do yo use? mine is 0.03

    if you tap very fast to go to advanced pages this happens suddenly. it closes and you are back to summerboard. beside it is really a problem to go to page for example 150 after 150 times tapping > botton. Is there anyway of getting to page 150 for example directly without tapping 150 times on > icon?

    I did test another document and that seems OK. Maybe problem was with my document but stll problem of tapping 150 times if you want to go to page 150 is still there.
