    I tried installing PDF viewer on the iPod Touch, and it said I needed to download PHP. I don't see PHP under development, and I tried searching under all packages, and I can't find it. I tried searching the forums and google, but too many miscellaneous things come up because "PHP" is part of a lot of links. Does anyone know a source where I can download PHP, or can suggest a better app for viewing PDF files? Thanks in advance.

    Go into all Packages and scroll to the "P's" and it's right there.

    I don't recommend PDFViewer.

    Instead, use an app called "Docs" which lets you browse your iPod for files and open them in Safari. The documents don't have to be PDFs (.doc is supported too, I think) and you don't need wifi.

    It is also a lot easier to read because you scroll normally and can double tap to zoom etc.

    Hello, I am having trouble with docs / wildeyes. This doesn't happen for everything, but some files I try to open get either "file not found" or "this document may be password protected" errors. I am running 1.1.3. my files are in mobile/media/doc or media/pdf

    Try them on your computer or change their permissions to 755 or 777.
