If you don’t already know by now, PDF is the ideal file format for sending and receiving a professional document. Adobe created the format, so it makes sense that a product from Adobe would be used more than any other application that can do the same. Most of us use Adobe Acrobat on our desktop/laptop computers to create PDF’s from Word documents, spreadsheets, presentations, images and illustrations and more. But what do you do when you’re not sitting in front of your computer/laptop and you need to create and send a PDF? Adobe has got you covered with the Adobe CreatePDF app for iOS devices that lets you create high quality PDF documents from your mobile device.
Similar to the Android version, the iOS app offers the ability to create PDF’s that look look exactly like the original using the same technology as Adobe Acrobat. So if you have a document as an attachment in an email, you can open up the document in CreatePDF and send the converted PDF files to other applications, including adding it back to an email as an attachment with one touch.
- Creates PDF files that meet accessibility standards
- Preserves links, end notes, foot notes and creates bookmarks automatically in PDF files converted from Office documents
- Preserves Transitions and converts Multi-media Content for Power Point files
- Supports OpenOffice and StarOffice documents
CreatePDF supports Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint document, RTF, Text, and WordPerfect documents (for you old-schoolers). You can also convert all the major image file formats: (JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF, TIFF), in addition to the popular Adobe-branded file formats: (Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign).
At $9.99 to download, there are other mobile apps that can create PDF’s from your mobile documents at a cheaper price-point, but with a name like Adobe jumping in the ring and developing its own mobile app, you will be hard pressed to find another app that can do quality PDF’s like the company who created the format in the first place.
I could be wrong, so if you decide the download Adobe CreatePDF for the iPhone and iPad or know of a killer mobile app you use that can create PDF’s, let us know what you think in the comments section.
