App to sync pdf's wirelessly to Ipad/iphone?

I am trying to make it so where my users can view PDF's "on the go". There are new PDF's added to this folder every day, and my users travel a lot and may go a week without being in the office to sync to their computer. Is there a way to so that the Ipad can be wirelessly synced over 3g/4g with that folder?

Yes, just use Dropbox for everything. Configure the PC to add the relevant folder to the Dropbox system and share it via the Dropbox interface with your users.  Each time a PDF is placed in Dropbox, the users will be able to access it from their iPads or iPhones.

Everyone will need their own (free) Dropbox account, which if you use the invitation system has the side benefit of increasing the capacity of the original account, and install the free App on their iPad.

I'm with Jason on this. One more point - you'd need to use Dropbox's sharing capability in this case. It's explained here:

As mentioned, using the invitation (referrals) system is the way to go. Each invitation from you to your staff members—or between them—will give both parties an extra 500MB of free storage. See here:

Without sufficient referrals you'd need Pro accounts for more than 2GB of data.

Just to clarify how this works:

If I invite vallis to Dropbox and he accepts, I get a bonus 500 megs on my free account (up to a max of 16gb I think) but vallis doesn't get the bonus.

When you share a folder with another Dropbox user, that user has to have sufficient capacity on their account in order to see it.  So if I have 3 gigs of PDFs in a folder and the user I am trying to share with only has 2 gigs, it won't work all that well.

Once your friend registers and installs Dropbox, both of you will receive bonus space.
Basic (free) accounts get 500 MB per referral and can earn up to 16 GB, for a total of 18 GB.
Pro (subscription) accounts get 1 GB per referral and can earn up to 32 GB of extra space.

Dropbox is an outstanding service. Wouldn't be without it, although in this case an Evernote account would do the job too. Free limit 60MB per month of uploads, Premium 1GB.
