    Default pdf reader
    I've got a ton of e-books in pdf format, as well as scripts I need to rad on a daily basis which are exported from final draft as pdfs. Is there an app out there to quickly sync and read these on the iPhone?

    I've been looking for something along these lines as well. Maybe something with PDF,CHM,DOC and TXT support all in one maybe??

    From what I understand mobilepreview supports everything BUT pdfs. There's a poll somewhere in this forum where the developer's asking if people want an RSS app (which already exists) or adding a PDF reader to mobilepreview.

    Seems like a no brainer to me. Hope it gets done sooner then later.

    Mobile Preview chokes on large PDFs. Just FTP the files to your phone and try to see if they read correctly.

    I'm reading screenplays which run anywhere from 90 to 120 pages, so I'm sure it's gagging on the filesize.
