A friend of mine will soon launch a beta version of Fast PDF Scores, an online service that optimizes your PDF scores so that you can load and read them faster on your computer or mobile device, and not have the score crash your reader.  Sign up for the beta here.  The website has a sample of an optimized PDF file that you can download and try out.  Here’s the description of Fast PDF Scores from the website:

Do you often find it very slow to load your scanned music scores and turn the pages? Does that make many of your PDF scores unusable for rehearsals and performances?

Fast PDF Scores optimizes any PDF and fixes these problems. Submit your score and quickly get back a much faster version. You’ll be able to easily load and flip through scores that used to crash your favorite desktop or mobile reader.
