This Week in PDF: iPad app allows annotation printing

January 11, 2011


This week in PDF has seen an update to an iPad-based application for printing PDFs, the release of new topographic maps for an iOS app, and the announcement of a tool for fixing damaged PDF files.

First up, Readdle has released an updated version of its iPad app for PDF printing. Printer Pro for iPad 2.2 now allows users to preserve annotations such as highlighting, signatures, and hand-drawn notes when printing PDF documents. The latest version now supports integration with AirPrint, and also adds the ability to print to PDF. For more information about the software, check out the official product page.

In other news, Avenza Systems, Inc., has announced the availability of USGS (United States Geological Survey) topographic maps for use on its PDF Maps product. PDF Maps is an application for iOS devices, including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. The 55,000 USGS topographic maps -- geographically-aware PDF files that are organized by state, area, and 7.5 minute quadrangle (1:24,000 scale) -- are available from the PDF Maps Library. More information can be found on the official PDF Maps page.

Last but not least, Kernel Data Recovery has announced the release of its tool for fixing broken or corrupted PDF files. The software works by extracting information from the original, corrupted PDF and rebuilding the file from scratch. According to the company, this process preserves both formatting and PDF file properties. For more about the tool, hit the Fix PDF Tool webpage.

That's it for this week. Watch this space!
