Believe it or not, there are actually several reasons why a person would want to export their iPhone’s text messages to a shareable file. Maybe they need them as evidence in a criminal case, or want to save a memorable conversation.
But the iPhone doesn’t give you an easy way to save your text messages. Luckily, as usual, we have a jailbreak tweak to help us out with this problem. Introducing the new Messages2PDF application…
Built by developer Alberto De Luca, Messages2PDF is a utility that allows you to save your text messages (entire threads) as a PDF file. Once saved, you can send the file to other devices via email.
The package itself is very easy to use. After downloading, you can launch the app by clicking on its spring board icon. When Messages2PDF loads, you’ll see a list of all of the text message conversations that currently show in your Messages app. From here, you just tap the thread you want to export and let the app do its thing. Once it’s done, you can send the PDF out through your device’s Mail app.
The software works as advertised, and is highly recommended if you’re in the market for an app like this. If you want to try Messages2PDF out for yourself, you can grab it in the Cydia Store, on the BigBoss repo, for $1.49.
