There are many features we take for granted on Mac OS X that remain absent on iOS, such as the ability to “print” to a PDF file from any application. Luckily, this is easily added with the purchase of a third-party app, and one of the best options available—Darsoft’s PDF Printer—just received a shiny iPad makeover. The tablet-only app (a separate iPhone version is available) lets you convert virtually any kind of document into an Adobe PDF-compatible file. Although many apps can now export such files natively, PDF Printer is unique in its ability to turn web pages, photos, clipboard contents, contacts, SMS messages, and even emails into high-quality PDFs.
The impending arrival of iCloud Keychain has thrown a spotlight onto apps used to store sensitive data, including our longtime favorite, 1Password. The folks behind lesser-known contender Passwarden have seized this opportunity to overhaul their own app, but they haven’t gone far enough quite yet. Like 1Password, Passwarden stores login, credit card, and other data with 256-bit AES encryption, with the option to sync it between OS X and iOS. Although the core functionality is largely the same, Passwarden’s freemium business model is a real kick in the teeth.
