Question regarding UIScrollView vs. UIPageView


This may be out of context but I was wondering:

If I wanted to display large amounts of text based information with integration of images, would it more efficient in terms of both coding and memory usage to:

  1. draw the pdf file using UIImage and display it with UISCollView (there are some issues with the images not scaling properly)
  2. Use UIScrollView to display a .doc file?
  3. or simply baking the text and images into the code

Although option 3 seems to be the simplest, but it seems like it would be more a hassel later on if the information needs updating.

Thanks for the feedback!
