Although iBooks can directly read PDF files, to get more convenient and a beautiful bookshelf offering a better reading experience, you can try to convert PDF to ePub format, which is the original and default iBooks format.

Read PDF Files on iPhone with PDF Reader App

There are many PDF reading apps developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Here I list 3 PDF reader apps to help you read PDF files on iPhone:

1) Aji Free PDF Reader
The Aji Reader [iTunes link] is a nice and simple-to-use PDF reader. With it, you can download a document straight from the web using the URL, or you can fetch it from their server. The only drawback is that you need to know the URL if you want something specific.

2) iPDF
iPDF is a simple to use app, which offers the ability to search and store the PDFs right on your iPhone. However, the overall appearance is awesome, and the search capabilities are not intuitive as other PDF readers.

3) Dropbox
Dropbox is an incredibly useful app for you to read PDF on iPhone. It also allows you to share documents between computers. Simply click on the PDF which you want to read, click on the little star at the bottom of the iPhone screen, then the document will be saved to your Dropbox favorites.
