    Hey guys. LOVE LOVE this phone. I'll start out by saying that.. but man oh man. Why can't it just be simple?

    I want to link a file directly to the main screen (if you're curious, it's the MTA Subway Map PDF for NYC.. so i can see the map with a touch of a button.. why buy an app for that?)

    So I download adobe reader and I can see the file, everything looks good.. but no ability to 'pin' it to the UI.

    So I convert it to JPG.. go into picture viewer. No ability to 'pin' a picture either.

    I know I can pin a URL! So I try going to the site URL via IE on the phone and bookmarking it, then pinning it. You can't! It's a file, not a website.

    Seems like the simplest thing to PIN a FILE for easy access. Am I just stupid? Is there an app out there that can help me?

    Best I can do is pin Adobe Reader and then find the file, but it's an extra step. :)
