With PGN Viewer Gold you can view your favorite chess games on your iPad.

You can download a PGN file from an FTP site, search for a characteristic (ELO, Player, Color, Result, Event, ECO) and choose game to view.
The search acts only for selected files in the manage files panel.
Tapping Viewer FTP Site you can access on a list of game files that I have already prepared.

Another way to transfer file to your iPad is via iTunes. In iTunes select PGN Viewer Gold App and drag a PGN file into the document list.

Also, you can open a PGN file attached to an e-mail by selecting "Open With PGN Viewer Gold"

You can download more than one file, so you can add more and more games to your database.
You can then delete a file when you are not interested on it yet.
You can navigate through the game forward or backward, to the end or to the start of the game.
With other two buttons, you can goto next or previous game in the last searched game list
You can also jump to a specific move just by tapping on that move.
Now you can also view game moves playing automatically tapping Autoplay button
You can flip the view to see also the black's point of view.

From version 3.0 there is a chess engine that suggests a move in any position. You can access it swiping game notation view

And last, but not least, both portrait and landscape orientation are supported.

Enjoy yourself.
