Open Files with App Switcher

First grab your file, press Command-Tab, and then drop the file onto the desired application's icon to open it within that program.

Hmph. Inspired by the TB piece on Overdrive, I tried reading ebooks from the NPL and Brooklyn PL. Both websites and the Overdrive app (on iPad & iPhone) were unusable.

Yes, the OverDrive apps have a long way to go before they can even be called mediocre. Fortunately, Bluefire is capable of displaying the ebooks that most libraries' OverDrive services offer. See "OverDrive, Bluefire, and the EPUBlic Library," 18 February 2011: http://tidbits.com/article/11980
