    Hi Everyone,

    I have some e-books in pdf file format. Just wondering if anyone can recommend a book app for pdf files or should I change it to a different file type? and if so how do I change the file format?

    Thanks in advance.

    First off, large PDF files sometimes will not load up due to the the iPod touch's memory limitations. However you may try the following:

    non-Jailbroken Device:
    1. Search on the Appstore for 'PDF' and you'll pull up a number of PDF viewers. Most are paid apps but you night lik eto try the free Files Lite (200MB storage limit), which allows you to sync and view a number of different types of files including PDFs.
    2. Search IPTF for 'PDF viewer'.. there's plenty of discussion on this topic.
    3. Email your PDFs to yourself and open up in the mail.app.

    Jailbroken device:
    Try downloading ruBooks. Once again PDF size is an issue but worth a go.

    My Solution:
    I overcome the memory issues by converting my PDFs to individual JPGs and zip them up for viewing in iComic (either $0.99 App Store version or free jailbreak version on iSpazio repo).
