    Is there a pdf application that will open 50 +meg pdf files? Specifically pdf magazines? I've tried airshare but never got it to work. Is there anything else available? I remember in 1.1.4 there was one that worked ok, but don't know of anything in 2.1.

    your best bet is to use a pdf to jpeg converter then zip the jpegs up for trnsferring to your device through SSH and viewing under iComic. Lengthy process but works extremely well...

    I hope that someone will create an app either for JB or in the iStore to fill this need. It'd be a lot better than seeing another tip calculator.

    Try Files

    So far I think the best solution is Files from the Appstore. Like Air Sharing, it uses a WebDAV server to transfer files to your device...you simply add a Network Location and you're away.

    It can handle many types of large files (I've tried a 20 MB pdf) and has bookmarks & a Go to Page function.
