  • Apple Removes Print to PDF App From App Store



    Apple giveth and Apple taketh away.

    According to Print to PDF's official website Apple has removed the iOS app Print to PDF from the App Store. The application allowed users to save their emails, attachments, websites, and photos as PDF documents by adding "Print to PDF" as a printer to Apple's built-in printing feature.

    However, when Apple figured out that Print To PDF accomplished this by using Airprint, Apple's wireless printing feature, Apple yanked the application for The App Store.

    We regret to inform you that as of August 26th, 'Print to PDF' is no longer available on the Apple App Store. On August 24th, we received a call from Apple Developer Relations telling us that we are not allowed to use AirPrint as a way to print documents to PDF and that for this reason the app could no longer be available on the App Store.
    The Print to PDF team, via their website, acknowledged they were caught off guard by the actions of Apple, especially since updates to their App have been approved many times before with the the same general functionality. Users who already downloaded the app before it was pulled from The App Store should have no problems using the application, but shouldn't expect any updates or support until Apple and Print to PDF's creators reach an agreement.

      so they can sell whatever they want to whom ever they want.

      so the don't have to worry about having their great idea yanked and the copied into a future version of iOS.

      so they can develop apps that people want and not just what apple will allow.

      so they can make more money


      here's a question for you?

      How many apps in the app store let you use your lock screen?

      How many apps in the app store lets you remove default apple apps and use a 3rd party app instead?

      Not sure when PrintToPDF came out, but TruPrint (jailbroken) allows you to do this via the same mechanism and will create an email so u can email to yourself or someone else . (Also adds support for additional Canon, HP, Epson, Brother, and Lexmark printers directly via the iOS native). (Free Trial of course )

      EDIT: Yep it did.
      The mobile version is so much better but it refuses to post. I click the "add Comment" button and it does nothing.
      Now you have 2 different versions and both have bugs.
      I request to have a bugless version. How about the very first one. I never had any problems till the site started changing.
      The problem I've been noticing is the fact that there are two separate views, a blog-like "content" view, and a "forum" view, and they are not always synced with each other. I frequently see more posts in the "forum" view than I do on the content view. It's obvious the "content" side draws from the "forum" side, the latter being the original source for the content. On the old site, the CMS employed(vBCMS I believe) simply uses the forum content to display the main article and replies; I honestly feel this site would be far better of going back to vBCMS or similar for displaying the news. The out-of-sync tendencies and the issues with RSS on "news" forums (though the latter might be caused from a combination of it and vBSEO) makes it feel like a beta that was pushed out before it was ready (yeah, big shocker in the software world, right?...)

      And the red tape strikes again. Oh well :/ I guess it'll go to Cydia soon.
