    On an iPhone is there an app or extension that allows from safari to export the web page direct to a PDF file?

    Can't seem to find any, there's an iPad version called PDF converter, but it's iPad only. Obviously free is better ;)

    Are you wanting to convert web pages to PDF on the iPhone? If so, I just did a quick Google search and this app came up: PDF Export Lite. Seems like it's able to convert HTML to PDF.

    Hope that helps.

    EDIT: Also found this article on OS X daily. Not sure if it works on iOS 8 but worth a try as an alternative to using an app.

    Share extensions would be perfect for this, but I have yet to see any iPhone apps that have them. I'm sure some will come out in time.

    I use an app called PDF Printer. Basically, to convert a web page, you load the page in the app's built-in browser, then you can easily save it to a PDF. It allows upload to various cloud services as well. It looks like the app Hustler1337 recommended takes the same approach (built-in browser) to PDF conversion.

    And this app also does PDF:

    I've never had great success with the various apps generating quality PDF. If wanting something for reference purposes, and not going to be publishing/sharing where it has to be pretty/100% accurate, then these apps work ok.

    Otherwise, wait until you get to a non-iOS device and print.

    I installed Printopia on my desktop computer. It makes any printer on my network an iOS compatible AirPrint printer. It also allows me to save to my desktop computer anything as PDF, even website pages from Safari.
