    Is it possible to get PDF's on a non-jailbroken iPod Touch 2g?

    Is there a app that works and does this?

    The ipod will already read them and there are other PDF specific apps in the app store

    Or, he could do it this way.

    Download Stanza on your iPod (it is in the App Store, and is free).

    Download Stanza Desktop Edition from here.

    http://www.lexcycle.com/download-windows (Windows)

    http://www.lexcycle.com/download-macintosh (Mac)

    Open up Stanza on your computer, and go to File>Open and select your PDF from wherever you saved it.

    Now for this next part, you are going to need a wireless internet connection.

    Go onto Stanza on your iPod and go the "Shared Books" section of it.

    Click on "Books on your PC's name here"

    Click on the title of your book, and wait for it to download. This will only take a few seconds.

    Now, the advantage to doing it this way rather then sending it to yourself in an e-mail, is if you do it through Stanza, you can zoom in on the words, and not have to bother with flicking back and forth on the page as you would if you read the PDF on your e-mail account.

    My understanding from what I've read on Lexcycle's site is that Stanza converts PDFs to another format before putting it on the Touch and that it does not convert images.

    I'm looking for a PDF reader that can use the bookmarks in a PDF.
