Documents are a tricky topic when it comes to today’s current Apple devices, but for those who wish to turn their photographs into PDF files, hope is in sight. With PDF-It by Cocoalena Software, users can now scan, convert and send PDF files simply by using the built-in camera on their device. This handy invention proves ideal for those who wish to convert to all digital media, especially when on the go.
Now, users need only take a quick picture of whatever they wish to reproduce. For those who wish to read a newspaper or magazine article later, just take a quick snapshot of the page and convert the image into a PDF document. Using email, quickly share your newly made document with others or send it to yourself in order to access the file on your computer at a later time. Also, iTunes allows file sharing that allows users to link these documents with their iTunes account for easy access later on, as well. PDF-It also employs AirPrint technology, which works in magical ways to connect with an AirPrint-compatible machine and print your PDF file right from your device.
Gone are the days of ripping pages from magazines just to peruse them later. In fact, users may wish to use said technology to quickly scan business cards or copy their class notes off a white board, making the files accessible and transferable without ever having to deal with their physical being.
The simple interface makes navigating PDF-It just as easy as creating files. The top bar allows users to navigate between images and actual files, accompanied by an edit button to the top right. The bottom navigation bar, however, is where most of the magic happens. First, you will find the email and print button, which will want to use once you have created your files. The camera icon opens your device’s camera feature so you may snap a new picture. The ‘+’ icon allows users to choose a picture from their photo library. In fact, users can create a multi-page file containing an array of images from your photo library, new images and descriptions.
The gear icon represents the application’s settings. Here, users can choose whether to include your image description in the file. They can also choose to have new photos taken automatically save to their photo library. In regard to the images, users may also set the picture’s resolution (low, medium, or high), the difference inevitably altering the size of the file. And, to stay updated on all the updates, the information tab gives you a quick rundown of the new features added in the latest update. With so much to offer, and such quick, dependable speed, PDF-It seems to be a great way to transfer data easily and efficiently.
