Send websites and docs to iBooks
Authored by: DougAdams on Jun 29, '10 07:41:44AM
I submitted this as a hint a few days ago, but this seems like an appropriate place to post it:

The scripts contained in the PDF Adder collection assist with adding PDF files to iTunes as "digital booklet" PDF tracks. Each provides a method for easily supplying Author (artist), Album, and Category (genre) tag data which is then applied to the newly-added PDF track:

  • Add as PDF to iTunes is a PDF Service workflow that, when installed, will be available in the PDF pop-up menu of the Print Dialog. It allows you to save the current document as a PDF file (from any application that uses the Print Dialog) and add it to iTunes.
  • PDF Adder is an applet that will let you choose an existing PDF file and add it to iTunes. It can be installed in iTunes' Scripts folder for easy access from iTunes Script menu.
  • PDF Dropper is a droplet that lets you add a PDF file to iTunes by drag-and-drop.

PDFs added to iTunes with these scripts will appear in the "Books" library and can sync with the iBooks app on iPhone or iPad.
