    Sorry if this is a repeat post. I must have screwed something up before. I just bought the Acer a500 to hopefully help me with my job. I am new to the technology area so I hope someone can assist me. i would like to download a pdf to my Acer. Instead of carrying binders around work, I want it all on the tablet. Would someone be able to guide me with how to do this? I also want to use a styllus pen to write notes on the pdf and I am looking for an app to do that as well. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Drag and drop from your PC to internal SD card or use a USB thumb drive, thats what I do.

    Another suggestion would be to use Dropbox. Once installed on your PC and on the tablet, it is very easy to transfer files via Wi-Fi.

    Not sure if the A500 has a native PDF reader, which you would need. I use Documents to Go and it works great for PDFs as well as Excel, Word, etc.

    One of the best apps for PDF is Polaris Office.But there is some free apps for pdf also. Polairs just has better options for working with PDF is all.
    There are some writing apps a out there as well.
