Default Ipad on the road

Reprinted here in Cargo as my questions weren't getting answered in "Hangar Talk"

Two questions for IPAD users.
1. For International guys...any problems or workarounds for Netflix viewing oversees?

2. For FedEx guys...Any way to remotely access your computer at home?--am thinking of a workaround for BIDX until PH gets an App developed and approved?

As far as Netflix is concerned all you need is a personal VPN (virtual private network) which spoofs your IP address to a US one. Then you can access Netflix, Pandora, etc.
I use Witopia (witopia.net) and it works great especially in China. There is usually annual fees associated with the service..

I just got an iPad. Which PDF viewer works best for all our manuals?

"I just got an iPad. Which PDF viewer works best for all our manuals?"

GoodReader is the bees knees. I've got manuals, "wallet numbers", ALPA calendar, LIDO, airport briefings, metro maps for layover cities, bid packs, etc, etc, etc. I bought the other/more expensive app that guys were using (iannotate). It was supposed to highlight better, among other things. GoodReader has had several improvements and I still like it better (maybe just more familiar). You can markup charts with circles, boxes, arrows, freehand and select the line color from color wheel, then quickly review highlighted info preflight. I download LIDO for each trip and it takes less than 10 minutes with high speed. Get someone to show you how to "move" and "rename" files and everything else is intuitive.

I assume since there is no BidX App for his iPad, he wants to access his home computer with his iPad and run BidX over the internet worldwide!

I have used good reader and Iannotate. I prefer Iannotate over good reader.

I flew with someone that used the iPad to control the home computer but I can not remember what program he used.
