Once installed, PDF Converter appears in the "Open In..." list on your device. This lets you save a PDF from Mail, Dropbox, Documents 5 and any other application on your device.
PDF Converter does support iCloud Drive, so you can collaborate with other apps easily. Starting with iOS 8 you can convert files stored in iCloud Drive folders of other apps and share PDFs between apps. Whenever you’ve done converting the document, you can save the PDF back to iCloud Drive.
Extensions let you convert web-pages from Safari and photos from Photo Library without even opening PDF Converter. Once enabled, Photo extension gives you an ability to convert several photos from Photo Library into a multi-page PDF file.
To convert web-page just change "http" to "pdfhttp" in Safari address bar and tap Go. With iOS8 you can convert web-pages using Actions extension directly from Safari.

Ratings and Reviews
Works very well - Please stop asking for reviews
The application, like it's cousin PDF Expert, is a will conceived productivity platform for surviving in the digital jungle. It works as advertised. The overwhelming number of positive reviews is a clear indication that this is a well-built application and performs almost to perfection. The browser addon allows you to convert smallish webpages to PDF format directly from your browser window. If the webpage is too large, the application will report the same and then prompt you to open the webpage in the full iOS app. I have never had a failure in converting a webpage within the full iOS app.
The only downside is that the application seems to ask for you to write a review after each use. Readdle should consider implementing a feature that allows the end user to turn off the prompt asking you to write a review or that it should go away itself after asking a reasonable number of times.
A most excellent app, still could use some tweaks…
So, as an Air Force historian, I like to save news articles. They provide launching point for the 120 page histories that I write. But I like best about PDF converter is that you can convert as fast as you need to. I love the speed and the ability to convert webpages to Adobe PDF. The tweaks can come because it shuts down sometimes when you convert. Other times it doesn’t shut down. I think it should be all one way, or all the other way. Personally, I prefer it to shut down because it saves the webpage as a PDF before closes. By shutting down, it takes a step out of the whole process. I haven’t use any of the other functions because I like the primary function of this Application which is to convert everything to PDF. That is what it’s all about, and PDF converter does it well.
Reliable - Have Used for Years
I have had this app for years and it has been reliable. My primary use has been to convert web pages and I like that it is so easy to do without having to open the app. If I then wish to open the document in a different app, I can do that from within the app. It can be frustrating that some web pages that have special formatting may not convert what you want to see, but I don't think that that's this app's fault but is inherent in the web page design. I also like that this has been around a while and looks to stay that way. Too many apps fail after a few years from lack of developer support. Hope they continue to enhance and improve it.
