Open Files in GoodReader
PDF files can be opened in GoodReader in several ways.
From Another Application
Most applications have an ͚Open In…͛ feature that allows you to open a selected file in another
app. So, for example, if you͛ve downloaded a PDF with the Safari web browser, you can tap
on the screen and an Open In button will appear. Tap on the button and a menu should
appear listing applications which can open PDF files. Locate GoodReader in this menu and
tap it. The file will now open in GoodReader.
From a ‘Cloud’ service
Cloud services, such as Dropbox (the example we will use here), allow you to share files
between electronic devices by storing them online. Cloud services can be accessed through
GoodReader͛s file manager, or you can open Dropbox and use the ͚Open In͛ option as described
above in the From Another Application section of this guide.
To integrate the Dropbox service into GoodReader, first access GoodReader͛s file manager (if
you͛re in the main PDF editor, tap the middle of the screen and then on the My Documents
button that appears at the top).
NOTE: The setup of other cloud services may contain different additional steps, however they
should remain essentially the same as Dropbox.
