    Hi

    I have an iPad2 and a HP 7500 all-in-one Printer scanner.
    has anyone found an app that can use the flat bed scanner to create PDF files from scans?
    I can use the HP app to scan with but it wants to create an image file rather than PDF file.

    Save2PDF won't scan from your printer, but it will convert the image to a PDF once it is on the iPad.

    There are probably other apps that will do this, but that's the only one I know of. I don't use it, so read the reviews and description carefully before you decide it's what you want.

    I use VueScan in the AppStore by Hamrick.com with my HP printer/scanner and am quite happy with it. It's a "+" so will run on both the iPad and iPhone. Can't recall how much it cost, must have been about $5 I think.

    That looks interesting. It has a huge list of supported printers. Thanks.

    Just bought vuescan and love it. Scans straight from the wireless printer to iPad and the scan can be saved to several formats. Huzzah! It's a great find for since I'm a student and try really hard to lighten my walk around load. Less paper means a lighter bag.
