Adobe CreatePDF comes to iOS devices

Ever since the iPhone and iPad began to pop up in workplaces, apps for reading and annotating PDFs have proliferated. Now Adobe--the company responsible for bringing PDFs to the desktop computing masses--has launched Adobe CreatePDF, an app that lets users create such documents on their iOS device.

CreatePDF, which debuted Monday on the App Store, is a universal app that's compatible with both the iPhone and iPad. The app--originally available for desktop computers--uses the same technology behind Adobe Acrobat to turn documents originally created in Microsoft Office, OpenOffice, StarOffice, and others, into PDFs. To do so, just open a compatible file--say an email attachment, or other document--in the app, which will take care of the rest. After the PDF is created, it can then be shared via email.

Adobe says the app creates PDFs that meet accessibility standards, and preserve the links, end notes, and footnotes from the original files.

Adobe CreatePDF runs on the iPhone 3GS or later, the third-generation iPod touch or later, and the iPad. The $10 app is compatible with those devices running iOS 4.3 or later.
