One of the great pillars of the transition (or at least hybridization) between tablets Y PCs The fact is that the former manage to provide resources to be efficient in productive tasks. In that sense, we intuit that Windows 10 will begin to gain the relevance it deserves shortly, while Android Y Manzana They already prepare answers. In terms of software, however, there are multiple tools that allow working with a mobile device at a good level.
Many times we have talked about applications like Evernote or Pocket, essential services for avid readers / "browsers" / inquirers / students / researchers, etc. who wish to have organized and within reach of those contents of the website that may be necessary at some time. Today we are talking about a similar method that implies the possibility of converting a website into PDF from an Android device, to store it in the device memory, and squeeze the possibilities that the format allows.
UrlToPDF: download and installation
While the web, especially that web that already begins to adapt phones and tablets, presents a structure malleable, capable of adapting the font and attachments to the size of the screen from which we access, the PDF represents a completely opposite nature: It is a pre-edition editing system. printing a document. However, its high popularity made it a very widespread format when reading (even books) in digital, and there are applications that allow you to do almost anything said format.
The application we are talking about today is free and we are sure that it will become essential for many users who seek to make their tablet a Work tool. It is possible that, as we say, with systems like Pocket, many others do not find it too useful but, when it becomes necessary for any question, there it will be and will respond perfectly.
Two ways to carry out the conversion
The first and more elementary is to open the application and write the Web url that we want to capture in PDF format in the text box that appears in the upper area of ??the interface. Then we give Convert. a process bar will be launched and when it is finished we can give it to Open at the bottom to see the result.
The second way, however, will be the most used by most, given the way we usually proceed when we find a specific content that catches our attention. If we find a page we want save to PDF, just click on the three vertical dots of the Android menu, share, search UrlToPDF and follow the same procedure that we have reported before, only in this case the address will appear automatically and we should not enter it by hand.
Where are the files stored?
If we are methodical and we like to have all the PDFs together we can, using any explorer Android to access the conversions we have made through a folder that the app itself generates and where all the documents are stored, and then cut and paste the files.
In my case I use It's File Explorer, because it is the one that I have installed on the tablet right now (on the smartphone I have FX and I find it more attractive). Just go to the local memory and you will find this folder, as in the image above.
