Adobe Releases CreatePDF For iPhone, iPad Or iPod Touch


Adobe has just released a new app called CreatePDF for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

As the name suggests, allows users to convert documents, photos etc. into PDF files right on their iOS device. Adobe claims that they’re using the same technology used in Adobe Acrobat.

Adobe achieves this by uploading the documents to their servers, which is where the documents are converted into PDF files, thus making the conversion process independent of the iOS device. Adobe has also clarified that they do not keep a copy of the original or the PDF document on their servers.

Here’s a quick look at the features of CreatePDF for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch:

  • High Quality PDF Creation
    • Creates PDF files that look exactly like the original using the same technology as Adobe Acrobat.
