I don't come across this need very often, but when I do I really wish I had the ability to convert things to PDF on my iOS device. Well, there is actually a very easy way to do this. It's a free web service called pdfconvert.me. All you do is send or forward an email to one of 5 pdfconvert.me email addresses and the service will send you back an email with a PDF attachment of the content you wanted converted. The five different convert to PDF options are:
- Convert the body of the email to PDF ((email@example.com)
- Convert the entire web page of the 1st link in the email (this is handy if you want a PDF of a web page to send to someone...just use the Safari email a link to this webpage option) (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Convert an attachment in the email to PDF (works with Microsoft Office docs, Viso, Markdown, XPS and images) (email@example.com)
- Convert the body of the email to PDF without headers (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Convert markdown formatting to PDF (email@example.com)
Within seconds you get an email back from the service that has your PDF attached It's that quick and easy. What I have done is created a contact card that has all 5 of these email addresses listed so I can quickly send or forward an email to this service from my iPhone or iPad. You can download the contact card I created here.
