GoodReader for iPad adds horizontal page turning, VGA output

Good.iWare has released another update to its highly popular PDF reading application for the iPad, adding a number of enhancements to PDF reading. GoodReader for iPad 2.8 introduces horizontal page turning for PDF files for a more book-like reading experience. The new version also provides the ability to rotate PDF files, automatically crop margins for a full-screen view of text and display two-page spreads in landscape view. GoodReader also now pre-caches PDF files for better performance when turning pages and adds support for Apple’s iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter, allowing documents to be displayed on a secondary monitor, TV or digital projector. GoodReader for iPad is available from the App Store for $1 and is a free update for existing users.

Good Reader is a great app, and a very good deal.

I’ve already gone through over 20,000 pages of manga and other files, and it’s a real pleasure to use. You can’t go wrong.

Needed a very robust PDF reader for my iPad and settled on PDF Reader Pro for the iPad. At first it seemed adequate, but the app kept shutting down. After much consternation and uninstalling and re-installing I setteled on GoodReader and it’s AMAZING!!! The menu options are brilliant—i.e,viewing and page-turning options.
