Question:I have a customer who wants her local newspaper (.pdf) published as an native iPhone app. I tried to talk her out of it but she wants it to "be cool, with trend and with fancy page flipping - native iPhone app" (...and who ever pays the bills right :/) Nevertheless, is there an easy one-click solution to bundle the PDF with a simple eBook reader and create a X Code project or native app I can upload to the App Store? Is there any solution on VeryPDF?
