“Handy” PDF Converters

Papercrop is a free app that converts PDFs into a format that is far more easily read on an e-book or other handheld device. Great idea. The interface is fairly rudimentary and could probably use some fine tuning, but a great concept nonetheless and, for now, it works.

Here’s the download link,  showing a before and after example:

It is incredible how many talented developers there are out there, toiling away on their own time, creating mods and apps to make everyone’s life easier, no matter what their professional field.

We are all familiar with free online apps that convert a file to PDF (if you don’t already have that built-in to the software you use or haven’t got a copy of Acrobat Professional): http://docupub.com/pdfconvert/. But did you know there are also a free apps to convert PDFs back into an MSWord doc? Try one here:  http://www.pdftoword.com/
