As of January 2010, the iPhone is unable to save PDF files unless it was e-mailed to you as an attachment. Thankfully, there are applications for the iPhone that allows you to save and edit PDF files. Depending on the number of features and the company, the PDF application ranges from 99 cents to £3.20 as of 2010.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the "Home" button on your iPhone. Slide your finger across the screen to unlock the device, followed by tapping the "App Store" icon on your screen. Tap the "Search" button at the bottom of your screen.

  2. 2

    Tap the search bar at the top of the screen, and type "Aji Reader." Tap the first result, followed by tapping the "FREE" button and "INSTALL" button. Click "OK" on the dialogue box to confirm you are over the age of 17, followed by tapping the "Aji Reader" icon on your screen.

  3. 3

    Select "Fetch" from the bottom of the screen by tapping it, and tap the "Web Download" tab. Type in the name of the PDF's URL, or search for PDFs by typing in a search engine URL.

  4. 4

    Tap "Go" located in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. Tap the search result, and tap the orange button located at the bottom of the screen to view the PDF. The PDF is now saved in your "Web Downloads" folder located in the "Browse" section of the application.
