Here’s a couple of quick tips in one post.   If you want to drive up viewing figures for your blog, just pop the word “iPad” into your post somewhere.   Actually given the amount of spam that post attracted maybe that’s not such a good tip 🙂

Ok, onto the actual tip.

This really handy bit of software sits on your computer like a printer.   You “print” to it and it outputs a PDF file of whatever you have sent.

It’s very handy for converting any Office document into something anyone on any computer or mobile phone can read.   Adobe Acrobat (the software that reads PDFs) is free and already on 99% of the world’s computers so that makes it VERY compatible.

 Printing isn’t limited to Office documents of course, photos, posters, web pages can all be converted for ease of distribution.  

I wonder if the iPad reads PDF?  🙂
