Adobe released the CreatePDF app today for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The app is designed to open documents from a variety of formats and convert them into PDF files.
It's not the first PDF conversion app, or the least expensive, but it is the first built by Adobe using the same technology as Adobe Acrobat. According to Adobe, CreatePDF produces high quality PDF files that preserve links, end notes, foot notes and creates bookmarks. The app also preserves transitions and converts multimedia content for Power Point files.
Documents from email attachments or files stored in the cloud can be converted by opening them within the app. CreatePDF can currently handle Microsoft Office documents, Adobe (Illustrator, Photoshop, or InDesign) files, standard image files, text documents, and OpenOffice and Star Office documents.
The app uses Adobe's online services to do the conversion, but does not store any of your documents -- the original or the PDF -- online. Once converted, CreatePDF only allows you to email PDF out; there are no functions for editing or enhancing the document.
There are several apps that can handle PDF conversion already in the App Store, many of which also provide additional reading and editing features that are not currently available in Adobe's CreatePDF.
CreatePDF for iOS is available for $9.99 and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store.
