Adobe Reader 11 for iOS lets you convert PDFs, if you pay for it
So what's new in 11?
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.
