How to Save Web Pages as PDF Files on the iPad & iPhone

How to Save Web Pages as PDF Files on the iPad & iPhone | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"One little feature that iOS really needs is the ability to natively “print to PDF” directly on the iPad and iPhone, a popular trick on the Mac and in the PC world that allows you to digitally print anything and, in this case, save the contents of any web document or web page as a self-contained PDF document, allowing it to be read later, printed, or used for whatever other purpose. Since this great feature isn’t around on the iPhone and iPad at the moment, we can use a nice bookmarklet trick combined with a free third party web service to be able to add a “Save as PDF” option to Safari in iOS, which allows you to ‘print’ or convert any web page to a PDF file that is then accessible to apps like iBooks."

John Pearce's insight:

These instructions use the relatively simple ot install javascript bookmarklet 'trick', (script contained in the instructions).

Save Webpages as PDF in Safari on iPad without Third-Party Apps

Save Webpages as PDF in Safari on iPad without Third-Party Apps | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
Without using any third-party app, webpages can be easily and quickly saved as PDF from within Safari.

John Pearce's insight:

This could be quite useful though I must admit that I tend not to use Safari as a browser of choice, (only when it opens as the default browser). Given the option uses a javascript command line and bookmarks these instructions should alos work with other browsers.
