Adobe Reader 11 for iOS lets you convert PDFs, if you pay for it

If you're an avid users of Adobe's Creative Suite, you're probably already familiar with their recent shift to making software available on a subscription basis. Love it or hate it, it seems the dawn of software as a subscription is now upon us. With the release of the Adobe Reader 11 update, iPad and iPhone users can now take advantage of Adobe's CreatePDF and ExportPDF cloud services - but only after making the required in-app purchase.

So what's new in 11?
  • Ability to buy Adobe CreatePDF service using In app purchase
  • Convert an image to PDF using Adobe’s CreatePDF service
  • Create PDF files from a variety of file formats using CreatePDF service
  • Ability to buy Adobe ExportPDF service using in app purchase
  • Export PDF files to various formats (Word, excel, etc..) for editing using ExportPDF service
  • Bug fixes and Security updates

CreatePDF is priced at $19.99 per year, while ExportPDF (which includes CreatePDF) is priced at $89.99 per year. Well... nobody said these services would come cheap.

Create a file: 20 bucks. Save the file: 90 bucks. What a nice gesture from Adobe.

I think the idiots at Adobe are starting to feel the pinch from a huge amount of backlash over the CC (Creative Cloud) pricing system. I received an invitation via email yesterday to participate in a survey about their CC. I took the survey and from the way the questions were worded I got the feeling they are having second thoughts. They ask at one point if I would subscribe to CC if they dropped the price from $20/month to $10/month. I told them I won't pay for a subscription at any cost. As far as the CC apps, there are alternatives though not as good as Adobe's apps, at least on the Mac OS X platform. As far as PDF creation, there are plenty of alternatives and most are better than Adobe's apps. I look forward to seeing Adobe getting bought out by a better software company some day.

So far I only need to create PDF's from Windows OS machines. MS Word has its own PDF export built in now. Free PDF995 works for the rest of what I need to do.

Adobe Acrobat had a lot more control over the output (e.g. optimizing file size is easier in Acrobat) but I just don't need the bells and whistles.

In the past I used ScanSoft's paid PDF editing software (now Nuance). Adobe's prices are too high. They have competition.

I used to use Free PDF995 but they had pop up ads. Don't know if they still do. Now I use DoPDF7. No ads and it works nicely. You just select it from the printer drop down as you would any printer.
