Big-time PDF applications like Adobe Acrobat are great, but for many folks, splurging on them seems like hauling a pricey, seven-course banquet to a picnic at the beach. Many people are better off spending less to get only what they need. (You wouldn’t want to get sand in the caviar.)
Free PDF Scanner for iMessage feature scans and shares documents
The PDF Editor PDF Book Reader app for iOS devices lets you download, create, read and edit PDF files easily. You also can convert text and images to PDFs using the embedded text editor, mark up PDFs in numerous ways, convert them to other file types (JPG, PNG, etc.) and much more. It’s pretty robust for a free app (with in-app purchases).
But another feature of the app stands out for its wonderful convenience — and the fact that it’s free, not a pricy add-on. That’s PDF Scanner for iMessage. It allows you to easily scan documents and send them via iMessage as a PDF file. That’s one of the best ways to quickly and easily share documents with friends, family or colleagues.
The app touts the feature because it’s hard to find in free apps. While PDF Editor is free in general, with in-app purchases for added functionality, this particular feature costs nothing. And for that matter, the app hasn’t jacked up prices in general, either.
“Despite the fact that almost all applications have increased in price, this app has not,” the app’s creator told Cult of Mac. “And it has a very reasonable price compared to other apps, considering some of its features are unique.”
New updates to PDF Editor PDF Book Reader
