If the end goal is to get a [multi-page]PDF onto your iPad, why not start there with Scanner Pro by Readdle? Providing you have a recent iPad, Scanner Pro lets you use your iPad camera as a PDF scanner.
You might want to explore the Adobe PDF to Word online service built into Acrobat Reader XI for OS X. It is a annual fee based service. The output file(s) of this process can then be opened in Pages '09.
The Reader interface looks like this:
I can see how the Scanner Pro would be a useful addition to my App collection, and I may add it in the near future. It looks like it would be alot faster than scanning using Image Capture.
I checked out the Adobe web site and found the Mobile Adobe Reader App for free. It will let me annotate, highlight, comment, and otherwise mark-up my PDF documents, which may be sufficient for my needs for now.
Thanks for the lead. I'll be looking to see if there are any other suggestions forthcoming.
