Yes. It has a built in browser. To download from "My downloads" with your iPhone, iPad, or whatever using Goodreader:

Does the browser version of Google Maps have turn-by-turn directions? I don't think it does. The native Google Maps apps has turn-by-turn.
Also with Siri you can say "Give me directions to blah via transit." and then it will allow you to select Google Maps app instead of the Apple App.
I don't know how to make it your default maps app.
Pretty good. The interface is clean, but it took me a bit to figure out that you click on the little car icon to get directions.
Would like to make it the "default" map program so it would work from my Contacts instead of having to copy and paste the address each time.

I've determined its not a good idea to get a tablet + cellular coverage unless you can justify the increased costs.
Almost always its cheaper to thether from another device (like your phone or hockey puck), than for the device to have its own cellular connection.
As for PDFs, even the "Lite" PDFs are beefy. Compare the processing power...actually take a look at this:
The iPad4, WiFi with 32GB got the best rating.
I know its only Netherlands and Belgium planned for 2013, but it will eventually cross the pond I'm sure:
The spellbook apps usually have "Favorites" and some actually have spellbook "bookmarks", but really its easier just search for the spell you're going to cast on someone else's turn than trying to maintain a list.
You could just use a "Reminder App" and place all your spell there and check them off as you cast them. Then unremind them after you rest :-P A shopping list app might work too - each store is a "spell list".
You can always just take screenshots of stuff and make an Album in your photos of rules. If you don't have the page number in the photo you can always "annotate" with text on the photo with free apps.

I used Goodreader ($4.99 for the iPhone, $4.99 for the iPad), today for the first time at the table. I just "typed" extra loot and lined-out items that I used. I had a "HP" text object near my portrait that I kept updating with my current hit points. This created an "annotated" verison of the PDF I was modifying (a print-out from HeroLab). So now I will update HeroLab with the changes.
The unsubstantiated rumor is that HeroLab will come out with a limited version of their app this December - so lets hope we get favorable Harrow deck reading on that. This unsubstantiated rumor is why I have not invested in Character Folio.
The problem with creating apps is that its takes so much time to make a half-way decent app. You have to spend 500-1000 hours just learning how to program to get good enough to make a good app...and then getting paid pennies, literially, for all your hard work. Unless you get paid as an App Developer its going to be a serious hobby. At least Google doesn't take 30% of your profit from the app you just created...
Oh and when you have a half-way decent idea for an app there are guys with a team of programmers behind him, that will make a knock-off within days. I know a guy who spends a time just searching for apps that he then turns to his team of App Developers. They create the app in a day or two and then come out with a copy. They can turn them out so fast because they have a large library of apps to pull from. They also have a network of apps where they can "see other apps that this developer has made," that get people to rank it up. I've heard of some people paying for ratings to star up their apps, but that's unsubstantiated.
Oh and here's the latest on the iOS version of Herolab (November 16th).
You can turn on multi-finger gestures and use 4 fingers to switch between apps on the iPad by simply swiping left/right.
The apps I use:
I have iCrit and iFumble, but we don't use those decks. I wish they provided the other decks as apps...
And for fun I have iPatch (when playing pirates!)

Your expertise in your field of knowledge have others coming to you for information. You can use Knowledge (arcana), Knowledge (history), and Knowledge (planes) to make Day Job rolls.
PP Cost 4
You have done enough favors for mages that you have access to a network that can offer you and your party teleportation services to and from any major city once per session.
Forget about capabilities for a sec...what do YOU want this internet appliance to do for you?
List them in the order of importance. THEN we can help you choose the device that best suits your needs.
(E.g. if all you want to do is play Solitaire then your 486EX running Windows 3.11 will work just fine)
On the Evoking Day boon sheet there is no '--' in the Fame section. If the character earning the Boon gained 2 Prestige, do I add another 2 Prestige gained here?
Also there spot for Day Jobs does not have '--', does that mean the character that gained the Prestige gets a Day Job roll?
1) Alchemical ways
All the ways need to be reversable, like (get out if the mount dies). Really I'm looking for something like a "locked gauntlet-like"...(seatbelts???) or just a magical saddle?
Was thinking, if money wasn't an object, to create a saddle that uses the "Arcane Lock" spell as a base.
I forgot to print out the chronical sheets for an event and we played anyway. I have already reported the event on this website but still need to get the filled out chronical sheets to my players.
The ones I'm unable to physically meet again I want to email them their sheet to them.
Do I need to:
1) hand-write and fill everything in and then scan and email that sheet to them
I'm a little confused. Any guidance would be appreciated.
Reminds me of this when the wizard turn the cleric into an undead with a soul with a botched spell casting. Undead don't have souls and thus I would rule that the spell would fail.
Sorry, but the rules for Retrocasting don't exist in Pathfinder.
If you want to control undead cast Control Undead.
Crafting is underrated in my opinion. Not only does it save gold it allows for expanded resources while in the field (e.g. deep in a dungeon, need a Bane arrow for the creature that you know is at its bottom but you don't have time to go back to town? Maybe you can craft it there? Or you have spells at the end of the day you know you need extra for next day. etc...).
Anyhow I digress.

You know I've noticed a trend in faction missions. Some factions will have you use skills like Slight of Hand and Stealth, where others will have you use Diplomacy and Sense Motive.
I think you'd first want to make sure your character matches the faction in skill so you'd have a better chance at making the skill checks.
Unless the faction missions says otherwise, you can get help. If you're a charismatic type and the checks requires some kind of strength check or climb, don't be afraid to ask the big dumb barbarian.
I wouldn't do this that often, but you can sometimes trick your party members into do your mission for you. Like you can lie to them and say that the merchant you just talked to wants the ledger to remove a transaction that he made, but your faction mission is return the ledger to your Venture-Captain.
Bribery goes a long way. I usually assign +1 / 10 gp spent as a general rule. So if you roll a 16 and the DC is 20 you could add a "little extra for your family...".
Other players who also have the same faction mission so sometimes you don't need to do nothing - effectively riding their coat tails. If the player had to bribe an NPC, be sure to share the cost - its polite.
And of course you can always, usually when you first get the mission, ask your GM to clarify the mission if you're not exactly sure what needs to be done. If its secret take your GM aside and ask exactly what is expected of you.
I find that a lot of times when players fail their missions is that they didn't understand the mission in the first place.
Also as a GM you need to make sure that they give opportunity for their players to do their mission. Like if a player's mission is for a bit of information to NOT leak out, be sure to pause right before the you're about to spill the beans from the NPC interrogation, or allow the player to steer the conversation away.
Also if you're new I would hope a GM would be a little more forgiving and instructive on missions - I usually make sure to explain what a mission is to new players and what is expected of them to accomplish.
Have you tried http://www.meetup.com/ and typed in "Pathfinder Society" in your zipcode?
You can also take a look at the Grand Lodge sub-forum and see if you get any hits.
If that fails you can always try an online game. I've been meaning to take a look at that (roll20.net, skype, maptools, etc...).

But if you're paying for a +1 shield property that ads +1d6 to damage, what's the difference between that and +1 Flaming or +1 Acid ability? You're still paying for a +1 shield property.
