PDF documents have become a part and parcel of the life of workers. With much of our work being done on the move, the ability to edit PDF while on the move is key. The truth is that there is an army of PDF editors available in the Apple store for iPhones and iPads. We help you narrow your choices down with this list.
Most PDF editors allow you to annotate a PDF document, create fillable forms, and sign documents. Others have extra functionality in addition to those. For example, some include the ability to secure PDF documents by password protecting them.
Edit PDF on iPhone with Dropbox
This may come as a surprise to you, but Dropbox for iOS is now integrated with Adobe with the ability to edit PDF stored with them added. So you can edit any PDF files that you store in Dropbox right inside the Dropbox app. All your edited files are automatically saved back in Dropbox.
So, if you use Dropbox, you are good to go and need not install any other app. It is good value considering that basic Dropbox is free. If you do not use Dropbox, below are dedicated PDF editing apps for iOS.
