iOS Tip — Create a PDF from Web Page, On Your iPhone

Sometimes, you just want a permanent copy of a web page article. When I do, I create a PDF.

It’s handy if you want to annotate (mark up), share with others, or keep permanently. And it’s easy to do right on your iPhone — here’s how.

Install the Bookmarklet

Don’t be intimidated. Go to printfriendly.com and follow the instructions.

Go Create an Article!

Here’s how, step by step:

Here’s an article I want to convert to a PDF.

Just tap “Favorites” and select the PrintFriendly PDF bookmark (or whatever you named it!).

The process starts → tap the “PDF” icon to create the PDF.

Here’s your PDF. NOTE — this is NOT on your device yet. You are viewing the PDF in the Safari browser!

Select where you want the PDF to be saved — many different apps can handle the PDF format (iBooks, your PDF management apps, Evernote, Cloud storage, etc.). I will save to Evernote.

Name the note that you are posting to Evernote.

Here is the note in Evernote.

Open the note in Evernote. There is PDF document.
