Creating and editing PDFs on an iPad isn’t as tricky as it once was thanks to apps like PDF Pen, but productivity app maker Readdle reckons it’s made it even easier. Its latest app, PDF Office for iPad, lets you scan an image of a document and turn it into an editable form with text boxes.

Readdle’s previous app, PDF Expert, already let you read, view and edit PDFs to a limited extent. It hit the iPhone this summer.

PDF Office goes further with full editing and creation features. It will convert other files to PDF and edit existing PDFs to allow inline text editing along with adding annotations and pictures.

PDF Office is available with a subscription plan – $4.99 per month or $39.99 per year – but existing owners of PDF Expert 5 will get a year’s subscription for free.

Readdle says PDF Office will be available for other platforms soon.
