Are there any iPad PDF apps that either automatically or manually can split scanned PDF's into multiple pages?

At school, I receive many scanned PDFs that have 2 physical pages per PDF page, which makes them more cumbersome to work with since it requires me to manually pan around to see the next page.

  • That task is not trivial even when using a computer. A possible work-flow would be duplicating each page and then cropping only the respective half. On a computer this can be done manually or even using a script with pdftk and pdfcrop. But I doubt that an iPad app exists that will do the job. I would also recommend trying GoodReader. – iolsmit Feb 12 '12 at 17:50

PDFPen for iPad

has recently been released. It will permit you to split PDFs by saving a new copy of the PDF and then deleting pages you don't want.

I've not come across anything that will alter PDF's like that, however Goodreader (and Goodreader for iPad) is in my opinion the best PDF reader app

It has quite a few reading modes and easier pan and zoom controls (multitouch gestures) that may provide a better reading experience than using the iPad's built in viewer.

The downside is it is a commercial program, but at $5, it is money well spent.
