I want to navigate to an app on an ipad and be able to easily pull up my interactive pdf. Is there an easy way to do this? I know a few ways exist, but I'm seeing what my best route might be! I don't need others to be able to download the app. I just need it to be accessible on the ipads I have in use... 5 or so.
Be aware that there is a wide variety of apps available for viewing PDF on mobile devices. Many of them don't support interactivity well.
A good bet is Adobe Acrobat for iOS and Android, but it doesn't support some kinds of interactivity like buttons and video/audio. It can be downloaded from the usual app stores on mobile devices.
But there are a ton of other options, many poorly written.
The best ones you have to pay a small amount for like PDF Export or Good Reader.
Don't make interactive PDFs anyway. They are supported only on Acrobat on Dsktip computers. Mobile devices are not supported. You should consider either to use Publish Online and / or a 3rd party HTML5-plugin like from Ajar.
