50mb to 2.5

So yeah I got 95% compression however there's no settings. I'm compressing a magazine and wanted it around 10mb but no way to control the amount of compression. The default is way too much for me. 3 stars Bc it worked but for $5 should have more features.

Don’t do it!

I downloaded two apps, this app 1st. You have 2 options, wait 60-90 minutes for the compressed file to be returned to you, or pay $4.99 to get it within minutes. I paid the $4.99 because the other option is ridiculous. Then your file is uploaded somewhere, you wait a few minutes while it uploads with a message that says don’t close this app while uploading. After uploaded, you get a compressed file back in less than a minute but it was too compressed with horrible quality. Looked like a really blurry fax. No settings, no adjustments, just a smaller file.
So I downloaded the 2nd app from someone else, which I had to buy at the same price of $4.99 (so I wasted the price of a coffee). I liked it sooooooo much better. It was faster, didn’t leave my device, and I had full control over 5 dpi settings and an image quality adjustment slider. The 1st try didn’t compress it enough so I lowered the quality a little and did it again which worked out great. Basically, keep looking because I was not happy with this app at all.

Blackmail - Ransomware

Use this app and you’ll be presented with a message telling you that your pdf will take 60-90 minutes, but if you agree to pay ($9.99) it’ll happen straight away. This is ransomware. They don’t tell you this in the app description, which they should. The proposition that it saves me CPU time is dishonest: if it used my CPU I wouldn’t need their server time.
In the description, devs claim compression won’t degrade quality: yet it does. Images are frequently so compressed they become jaggies. Frustrating lack of control.
Better still, Apple should provide image compression options in its “print to pdf” function so that we don’t create massive pdf’s that need this app.
