The convert to and from PDF seems to be an active product category and there are a bunch of players in the space. I have covered products in this category before Able2Extract Professional 11 Slings PDF Files Around Like a Boss - iPadpedia, and Convert PDF's to Word - iPadpedia.
PDF Converter Ultimate being an iOS product interested me. It converts files to and from PDF. It is comfortable with a host of file formats and is good at the conversions. You can convert files which are hosted on your device or from a slew of cloud services, including Box, Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive.
Interestingly, the files are uploaded to the Cometdocs servers, and the conversion is done there and then pushed to your iOS device. The heavy lifting of the conversion is handed over to the servers and that means that your iPad battery and speed are not important to the conversions. It is an efficient way of dealing with the conversions. The files once pushed to the iOS device are deleted from the servers.
You point the program to a cloud service, in my case, it was Dropbox. The contents are listed. You pick one.
The content of the files is shown in the window. You press Convert, the button on the top left.
That gives you a drop down menu of your choices.
After converting you have the ability to share the document through the share menu of iOS.
PDF Converter Ultimate does a good job of converting regular documents and scanned documents.
When you need the ability to convert to and from PDF files to a plethora of formats on iOS, PDF Converter Ultimate is a good choice. It is recommended heartily.
