One might think that major software companies could figure out a way to work with major hardware companies so that a format that works pretty well on a PC would work just as well on an iPad. One of my biggest frustrations over the last five years has been telling readers that the video content in my books, “Woodworker’s Guide to SketchUp” and “Building Blocks of SketchUp” will not play on their iPad. Not even if you download and install the iPad version of Adobe Reader.
A couple of sharp-eyed readers have let me know that there is now an app available that works like a charm. It isn’t free, but it looks to me like it’s well worth $10—it lets you do all kinds of things with PDF files on the iPad. It’s called PDF Expert5, and you can learn more about it at this link:
UPDATE: There is some debate about whether or not PDF Expert really works (see the comments below). According to one of my readers this app, ezPDF Reader works well and costs less.
works for android tablets, and there is also a version for the iPad
