App for That: How to print emails, webpages, and photos as PDFs
There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, Patrick asks:
I'm looking for an app that will convert anything (website, email, email attachment, picture from camera roll, etc.) on the iPhone/iPad to a .PDF file from the built-in Print > Select Printer dialogue.
To see what we found for Patrick, follow along after the break!
Print to PDF [$3.99 - App Store link] is exactly what Patrick is looking for! It's a universal application for the iPhone and iPad that adds "Print to PDF" as a printer when using Apple's built in printing feature. This includes, emails, email attachments, websites, and photos. All you need to do is have Print to PDF running in the background.
Another really cool feature about Print to PDF, is that if you have multiple devices running Print to PDF and they're all connected to the same WiFi network, you can print to any of those devices.
Anyone else have any App for That suggestions for Patrick? Let him -- and all of us -- know in the comments.
UPDATE: Print for PDF has been pulled from the App Store.
