    I would like to put the tokyo metro maps on my ipod. I know there is an app in the store, but it has pretty poor reviews and access to the maps is free anyway! I know I can just use a picture file, but is it possible to use a pdf instead? I can view them in safari but can't figure out how to download them, but they work much better than even the high resolution pics.

    On a side note, I am obviously very much new to this and do not want to jailbreak my ipod... at least not yet. Does that mean that only app store apps will work or can I source them from elsewhere and still use them? Obviously my music and videos come from a wide variety of sources, but not sure if apps would work or not.

    Thanks!

    Download the pdfs onto your pc and then transfer them to your touch with an App.

    Choose one of the file transfer programs from the App store. For example, Discover works very well and is free.

    Discover will allow you to view and zoom a pdf without trouble.

    No apps from outside the App store unless you jailbreak!
