    You don't need a middleman app for that. Just install DropBox on your PC and upload the PDF to it. Then open DropBox on your iPad and the PDF will be there.

    The above solution is perfect if you just want to get the file on the iPad, but don't need to edit it on the iPad. Quickoffice Pro HD for iPad is really nice if you want to be able to edit (on the PC and the iPad) and sync various Office documents with DropBox.

    DropBox could do this all in the background while you're at work or at night. Even though it's a slow connection, it would probably be done in several hours.

    But if you would rather use iFile, that will work as well. It does have support for background uploading. Here are directions for linking iFile with your DropBox so you can directly upload to it from iFile.

    • First, link your Dropbox in iFile by going to Settings -> Remote Servers.

    • Navigate to the files you want to upload, press the Edit button, select the files you want to place in your Dropbox, then tap the clipboard in the bottom right, then "copy/link."

    • Now to get it to Dropbox you actually have to open a new tab by pressing the stacked squares icon in the same spot as the clipboard which will only be there if you're not in edit mode.

    • Click the plus sign to open a new tab, then chose Dropbox.

    • In this new tab you can touch/hold for the paste menu to show. After choosing paste, it will begin uploading to your Dropbox.
