Feature request for Pages on iOS: default automatic curly quotes, single and double, with an opt-out optional setting. Even though they can be typed with keyboard shortcuts, an automatic setting, for the sake of efficency, would be very much appreciated.
I wholeheartedly endorse Dave Winer’s opinions about the open web and the role the juggernauts (Facebook, Twitter…) play on the matter. A recent post of him summarises his wishes – and mine – very well. I definitely recommend reading it.
– I used the ‘Web to PDF’ action in iCab browser. The app chosen as destination was Goodreader, which couldn’t open the newly created file.
– On Safari, I tried using the ‘Save to Dropbox’ button in the Sharing menu, but the PDF created was not paginated and not well finished.
– On Safari again, I triggered the ‘Make PDF’ action extension from Workflow (available in its gallery) after tapping on the Run Workflow button in the Sharing menu. It ended up well, but was the slowest thing I ever did on the iPad.
We sometimes forget how young and green the mobile technology is.
– Take a page in Safari you want to keep and pass it through the ‘Save PDF to iBooks’ sharing action.
– You automatically get the new PDF opened in iBooks, but the only thing you can do in it is inserting a bookmark.
– Don’t try to highlight text, add an arrow or a square or write a comment; such actions aren’t possible.
– You cannot even send this document to the Preview folder in iCloud Drive.
