I have a very great problem that is limiting my use of my iPad. I like to read ebooks in the form of very large PDF files....
PDFpen for iPad ($10) is a feature-filled app that lets you annotate and edit PDF documents. You can also import images from your Photo Library and place them in PDFs. It can store files in iCloud, Dropbox, Google Docs, and Evernote.

I begin with thumbs ups and pats on the backs of the collective Smile crew for the iCloud integration. This is intended to be a quick review of the iPad app, but as you can see from the title, the standout feature of the whole thing is the ability to easily access documents in iCloud. This is something that Apple has failed to provide so far with the Mac version of the iWork apps, and Smile has given me my first glimpse of how useful it could be.
iCloud integration is simple. A PDF opened in the iPad is saved to iCloud. A PDF opened on the Mac with PDFPen for Mac (previous review) can be saved to iCloud with a menu command. If you don’t have PDFPen for Mac, Smile has also been thoughtful enough to create a $.99 Mac app to access your PDFs from iCloud. There are a few shortcomings with the iCloud integration:
1. The PDF is removed from the Finder folder it was in once it is moved to iCloud, which could be a negative as that file is now no longer available to other apps. For instance, if you wanted to email a PDF, you either have to initiate the email using the Mail Document command in PDFPen, or save a copy of it back into the Finder so you can attach it from within Mail.
2. Another limitation, which I imagine will be short-term, is file organization. There is no way to organize your documents in the PDFPen section of iCloud. You simply have a single collection of PDFs to browse through, sorted by date, with no apparent means to re-order or search within the collection. That could become cumbersome in short order.
