I’d like to call up web pages and save them as PDFs on my iPad. Is there a simple way of doing this?

For £3.99, Dar-Soft’s PDF Printer for iPad will take care of it for you. Just launch the app, tap on the Web entry in the Sources column, enter the URL of the web page you want to visit, tap the Action button at the top right and then tap Convert To PDF. This converts the page and opens it as a PDF file within the app.

You can then open the file in another app or send it via email. To open it elsewhere, tap the Action button and then tap the Open In command. You’ll see a list of the installed apps capable of displaying the PDF – iBooks and DocsToGo, for example. To email the file, tap that same Action button and then the Send File command. An email message will appear with the PDF attached, ready to send.

Note that web pages don’t always appear perfectly rendered. You’re likely to see a blank page or two, and some of the page’s images and links may be rearranged.

PDF Printer for iPad allows you to easily convert web pages to PDF files, which you can then open in other apps or email

The app can convert more than web pages. You can also grab files from your Dropbox account and convert them, and convert files you’ve added to PDF Printer via another app’s Open In command.
