PDF in iOS 9

3 01 2016

With the command

javascript:pdf_url=location.href;location.href=’http://pdfmyurl.com?url=’+escape(pdf_url)

saved in the Bookmarks Menu you could convert websites into PDFs in iOS 8 and earlier. In iOS 9 you will get the error message “Cannot Run Script. Safari cannot run the script because JavaScript is not allowed to be used in this way.”.

Fortunately Apple implemented a much more comfortable feature you will get when tapping on the ACTION menu:

Save PDF to iBooks

now turns the current website into a PDF file, saves it in iBooks’ documents folder and opens it.

Btw, the new command also works with photos. Open Apple’s Photo app, select some photos, tap on the ACTION menu and you will see the aforementioned command. The generated PDF album shows one photo per page.
