    In the HP App Catalog before the latest update did we have the option to ONLY see Touchpad apps or have I just missed this option from the beginning?

    The catalog app seems to load everything much faster and be generally more responsive. It's too bad we don't have more apps.

    They added tab indent in QuickOffice. Still no auto-correct though.

    I was wondering the same thing. I have not updated yet because I am waiting for some patches to be updated but if anyone can confirm any improvement to Adobe Reader that would be great.

    It seems *slightly* faster (but still very slow compared to readers on other platforms) but the quality seems to about the same - so nothing to write home about.

    I've been using reading my PDFs on my cyanogen partition for a few days now but was glad to see the updates here. The adobe update doesn't seem to have done anything except Break my rendering fix. Still no save last page viewed functions.

    I don't understand what's so bad about Adobe Reader. It loads PDFs, and I can read them without issue.

    If you read a lot of big technical PDFs or magazines and zoom in the rendering is terrible, also compared to other platforms it's very very slow. I read PDFs for two-three hours a day so it's very noticeable to me.

    Biggest issues are no bookmarks, no search, and the only way to jump to a page is via the scroller (not too practical for 100+ page documents). Personally I haven't really noticed the quality and speed issues, probably depends on your documents.

    There is a patch which provides bookmarks (but only those made in the app), jump to page number, and selectable quality level (trade off between speed and quality). But at least as of yesterday it had not been updated for the new version.

    If you compare the same PDF with ubuntu or cyanamodgen, you'll notice very quickly the PDF on webos is blurry and not sharp. This makes a huge difference when reading long technical articles

    a lot stating webOS cant do PDF's still, its got nowt to do with PDF performance, its down to the app and the app alone, and unfortunatly we only have 1 app.

    but i repeat, it doesnt mean "webOS sucks for PDF's" it just means "our 1 PDF APP sucks".

    webOS is fine.
