Adobe Unveils PDF Creation App for iOS


Today, MacStories has discovered that Adobe released a new iOS app called “CreatePDF”. “CreatePDF” is a $9.99 universal app allowing users to easily create PDFs on their iPhones or iPads. Adobe claims that “CreatePDF brings the same high-quality PDF creation as Adobe Acrobat” to iOS devices. In addition, the app uses Adobe’s online services for performance and quality, creating PDFs that offer quality and accessibility standards.



Upon installing, CreatePDF registers as a default app to open Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, Adobe Illustrator drawings, Photoshop images and InDesign files, in addition to Open Office and StarOffice documents and JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF and TIFF images.

The app currently supports the following file formats:

  • MS Word (docx, doc), Excel(xlsx, xls), PowerPoint (pptx, ppt)
  • Adobe Illustrator (ai), Photoshop (psd) and InDesign (indd)
  • Images – JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF, TIFF
  • RTF, Text and WordPerfect
  • OpenOffice and StarOffice documents

The app works through iOS’s built in “Open in” menu, which allows third party apps to communicate with each other by sending documents to other applications that support specific file types, such as PDF, .doc, or plain text.

You can purchase CreatePDF for $9.99 in the App Store.
