  1. I do not second guess Andy’s judgment on anything lightly, but I have to disagree with his dismissal of Goodreader in favor of Air Sharing HD.

    The interface is not as polished as the best apps out there, but I think “stupid” goes too far. And nobody mentioned what, to me, is the feature that got my attention in the first place: with pdf files, it can pull a sort of Instapaper trick and strip out the text into an easy-to-read continuous column. I read a lot of text-heavy pdf files (academic journal articles) and this is such a killer feature for me.

    With the Dropbox integration, Goodreader would appear to do most or everything that Air Sharing HD does, only with a homelier interface and an extra awesome feature, for 1/10th of the price.

    To be fair, I haven’t used Air Sharing HD, so I certainly could have missed something important. But I hated to hear Goodreader get short shrift.

    (what the hell does “shrift” mean?)

  2. It would be great to modify the Padilicious script to have it create an iPhone-compatible gallery.
