    I have a bunch of books and text books in PDF format and it's impossible to read them with the native PDF reader. There is no search and no skip to pages. I have books 1000 pgs+ and there is no way I can scroll to where I need. The page number thing shows you the next 20 pages.

    Yeah. I felt exactly the same way. What even bothers me more is the missing full zoom and the crappy re-rendering (if you zoom in the text will not re-render and therefore be unreadable). I already complained to Adobe through their website and Twitter, maybe more people should do this to show them the need for some tweaks...

    Try converting the books in calibre to a .mobi format and then using pReader.

    By reading the help files.

    Honestly, if your book has special formatting (perhaps if you are like me and you have a book that has sample pieces of code) converting a PDF to mobi seems to be a headache. I'd imagine your book would have to be a simple novel or just straight text to easily convert from PDF to mobi (or PDF to any other format). Otherwise it's a pain in the *** to convert.

    If that's the case use some other device to read them until someone comes up with a better solution, or get the knowledge and write an app yourself.

    there is a skip to page, just touch the page number in the top right and menu should open
