    Hello,

    Just a quick question, does anyone know of any apps to shrink PDF files?

    At the moment I am creating some PDF files on my iPad using GoodNotes. The file size is very large due to some scanned images I need to included. Normally if I was using a Mac I could simply press "reduce file size" and that would be it, however this isn't available on the ipad and I am traveling so a mac isn't an option.

    So does anyone know of an app which can shrink PDF files? I know there are some web services, but the files are often too big to be uploaded.

    Thanks in advance.

    iPad apps? Goodreader or PDF Expert or Documents may be able to Zip the file but I do not know how much help that will be. I usually use the Quartz filter function on my Mac (built in Preview.app) or Acrobat Pro on the Mac to reduce the size.

    Well, it isn't the app but probably this link will help you in case of Mac OS X
