Create a PDF from a Web Page on Android Oreo
Edited by Jay
PDFs are great because they can be viewed on your Android device whether it's connected to the internet or not. Sometimes you may come across a web page that contains content that's so interesting; you want to retain a copy for offline viewing. This is especially helpful when getting into longer articles that sometimes demand greater attention.
Say for example you're going to be without internet access for some time; you could round up a variety of exciting content, convert the pages to PDFs, then view them on your Android device at your leisure. There is also the odd chance that a web page's content could be removed or taken offline, so grabbing a digital copy of it beforehand could come in handy.
Depending on the software you use, PDFs can also be edited. This is particularly helpful for research and academic purposes. Once you have a PDF of a web page, you can continue to reference it whenever you wish.
