Beamreader kicks ass for pdf files. I have handed the app some pretty big files, and although it renders the large picture books slowly, it works as faithfully as Adobe Reader on the PC. It is shocking that in the Fall of 2010, two iPad apps, Goodreader and iAnnotate, cannot display the images in the Black and Decker Complete Guide to Dream Kitchens properly.
Even the native PDF reading software in the Kindle DXG falls flat on its face with the above book. And this book is not an isolated exception. Many how-to picture books are improperly handled by these Apple and Kindle devices.
Now, all of us loyal Android fans can only hope/dream for a large tablet device to compete with the iPad and Kindle DX/DXG. That would smoke Apple and Amazon's bandwagon.
