ISO iPad PDF organizer...

I'm trying to find an app for organizing my PDFs on my iPad mini. Ideally, this app would enable me to sort my PDFs into folders *and* allow me to open the PDFs either within the app or in another application (such as Note Taker HD), *and* I'd like there to be a companion desktop application (for Mac) or website or whatever so I can organize things on my computer when I want.

Reading RPG PDFs on the iPad

I'm looking for a PDF reader app for my iPad. Challenge level: RPG books. I'm experimenting with using my iPad to read the rules books for D&D, Pathfinder, etc. during the game. Key features that I need: 1) Jump to an arbitrary page number; 2) Find word/phrase within the document; 3) Renders quickly even with large files with lots of graphics; 4) Ability to add bookmarks within the PDF file would be a huge plus; 5) Ability to sort files within the app with folders would be a minor plus. Recommendations?

Ok, it's possible I am just grasping at straws to find an excuse to own an iPad.

I'm trying to figure out if a iPad is what I'm looking for to help me reduce my physical books, particularly cookbooks and printed (from the internet) recipes. I want to know first whether iPad is the way to go for my specific needs (details within) and then, if an iPad is what I want, which generation iPad & apps would help me do what I want. Or maybe there is a better solution? [more inside]

Online "flipping page" catalog viewer software recommendation

I'm looking for a "flipping page" online catalog viewer for print catalogs. Hoping to find something that will work for iPad, iPhone and Android. Ideally I'd like something self-hosted, but that is not a deal breaker. The ability to add image map-like links to URLs is needed. The source file is a PDF built in InDesign.
