LeapDoc File Converter and More
One of the biggest complaints people have with the iPad is the inability to transfer files from the Mac to the device. LeapDoc helps tremendously with this. It basically allows people to read anything they’ve got on their Mac or PC using the iPad. It starts by converting the intended file to PDF and then wirelessly pushes it to the iDevice. They say LeapDoc is “the Instapaper for files & documents”…and I pretty much agree with that! It seems users of the App Store do to with 5/5 star ratings and some great reviews!
To initially start the process on the Mac or PC, all one has to do is “print”, and files or webpages, or documents are automatically converted to PDF and then you can “push” them to your device. There’s no syncing or anything like that, it just converts the file and off it goes. What’s great is it works for more than just text files, including graphic designs, desktop publishing, CAD, databases, MS Office and iWork Files, and thousands more common types.
Even better, if you’re at work or on a friends/colleagues computer, you can still use LeapDoc to send documents to your device by visiting their leapdoc.com website! This is a huge bonus and means you’re always able to receive current documents, even while on the go.
LeapDoc is a great utility for iPad users, and there are two versions, “lite” for free, and a paid version. I’d suggest giving the free version a try before hand, but bet you’ll love it enough to get the full version. Keep in mind the LeapDoc is not an editing program. It’s a viewer, converter, and sender. It does exactly what it says and offers to do, and that’s a good amount I have to say.
