Well, we downloaded the app and decided to test it out.
Once installed the app opens up right away to the File conversion screen. Here, you can select your PDF file from the options displayed on the screen. That includes your phone, iCloud, Gmail, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive or Direct Link.
Once you select your location, provide the necessary authorizations to access the file, especially if its from a cloud service. Then select the file.
When the file loads up on the screen, just hit Convert at the top left of the screen.
If you have the free version of the app, you’ll need to accept a waiting time of 60-90 minutes for the conversion to happen. If you upgrade to the paid version of the app, you only need to wait for 10 seconds for the conversion to be done.
All conversions happen on Cometdocs’ powerful servers and not locally. This is to avoid a drain on your battery life. Once the conversion is completed, all converted files are displayed in the File conversion screen. The files will automatically be deleted from the servers.
That’s the simple and straightforward process for converting PDF files to Word via the app.
If you have Word installed on your phone, you can edit the file, reconvert it to another file format and share with others too!
Cometdocs has a number of handy converter apps for such purposes but it will cost you a pretty penny.
Is Cometdocs PDF to Word Converter for you?
If you do a lot of PDF to Word conversions, this app is worth investing in. Mind you, the free version of the app doesn’t really offer anything of value. You will have to wait for almost an hour to see how your file conversion worked out.
But the lifetime upgrade at $9.99 speeds up the conversion process dramatically to just under 10 seconds and allows for multiple conversions too! If you want the whole business package, you can pick it up for $49.99.
