Convert PDFs in Smartphones & Tablets

An increased number of people are getting used to mobile devices for processing digital documents since the users always have their smartphones and tablets with them. However, using different file formats for this digital documents processing is not a smart idea, where we can rely on only one format. I am talking about the famous PDF or Portable Document Format. PDF is the best choice for this as it is a steady file format that allows you to interpret the text and images as they are. There are plenty of apps that can be used to view PDF on your mobile devices but I will discuss converting these files into PDF on the device itself.
