    What are you trying to convert? If its office documents pretty much any of the office apps allow you to save as a PDF. if its a webpage then you can use a JavaScript bookmarklet to convert it into a PDF.

    If its the latter create a bookmark in safari (or which ever browser you use) and then edit the bookmark and change the bookmarks address to the following: javascript:%20pdf_url=location.href;location.href='http://pdfmyurl.com?url='+escape(pdf_url)

    I am mainly interested in converting certain email content to PDF and then saving it in that format.

    The only way I can think of doing that would be a screen shot then converting that to a PDF. Docscan looks like it could do what you want, it's free but you can upgrade to pro for £1.99 check it out.

    Or photo to PDF.

    You may be able to copy contents of an email and paste it into any app that can create PDF.

    Sounds like my suggestion would work well then.

    Adobes "create PDF" app, to me it's perfect! Except for the pricing of it, $9.99 in the app store, but it works great! From the email, click the attachment and select "open in create PDF" ; the app will then open and convert the file, and from there you can open the file, click the button at the top right and select "open in.." and select the app you want to open it it. And voila!

    That may work for attachments but they specified emails themselves, not necessarily email attachments.

    The app should still work if you copy and paste into it. The advantage is that the app is made by adobe to create PDFs.

    This needs an Internet connection to convert, which is rubbish for the price of it!
