pdf reader 5/5
This app is EXCELLENT.
Free version worked so well I bought full Ver 5/5
By Ruel Cordero
I often need to fill in PDF paperwork and this program hits all the marks. I especially like that I can use my own digitized signature to be imprinted directly on the pdfs. I've just barely scratched the surface of all the other features but so far so good.
Too many pop-ups and reminders to buy the $30 pro app. It makes the workflow too cumbersome.
Really like the app... 5/5
I use this all the time and really like it. A little quirky at first just getting used to the controls, but after that it does what I want it to. My only complaint is that I paid for it on the iPad/iphone and still don't want to have to pay for it again on the laptop. So I'm stuck using the free version there.
copy and paste multiple links at once 2/5
Is there a way to select multiple links on one page to copy and paste it on other pages? Most of my links are the same throughout my PDF presentation and having to input them one by one is super annoying, specially when the document is more than 100 pages long.
Problems with Word 2/5
I was looking forward to using this application, however I have now encountered a huge problem on my computer since trying to convert a PDF DOCUMENT to Word.
Amazing app 5/5
By Ginu Philip Simon
simply amazing. best app to replace adobe pdf reader completely
Easy Shrinker that you can read 5/5
Easy to use with options of compressed file resolution so you don't end up with blurry scans. Very glad that I found this solution.
Scam Should be removed from Appstore 1/5
While trying out after a few attempts to try something requiring an upgrade the app locks on the upgrade page and refuses to quit.
No mention in description that you must upgrade to use virtually all of the features.
waste of money 1/5
doesnt really comvert into word so that you can change up a document. waste of money
If there was zero stars this app would have deserved it. I tried to convert PDF into Word files, something which this app pretends to do, and noticed that ALL the files were truncated. Hours of work gone. This app is not doing what it is supposed to do. Stay away!!!
Free version lacks needed features 2/5
What a waste fo time! Basic features, suhc as teh ability to rotate teh page view, are missing from the free version. Althoguh $29 for the full version is a much better price point than teh Adobe equivalent, I don't like this bait and switch. If they want to just do a trail version they shoudl do that instead of trying to manipulate peopel into installing the free version only to find it unusable.
Love It! 5/5
This is a great easy to use app. It does everything I need it to do!
pretty good tool 5/5
By Sw Wu
Small and convinient.
I think it should be the best lite pdf viewer and mark tool for macOS. I used to view pdf in windows where the best viewer is acrobat and edge. In macOS I tried this tool and I find it useful and powerful considering its small size. Good job!
App crashes 1/5
Cannot use the app because every time i try to insert a text box, the app crashes. Completely unusable
No Thumbnails? Where are the thumbnails? 3/5
I do research and I use the thumbnails to browse content and quickly find what I.m looking for. I spent way too much time trying to find the thumbnails and it bever worked on my computer. It renders the product unusable.
Not for me! 2/5
Cannot get the text function to work properly. Does not work well with new macs. Need to fix this bug and I would buy, I would'nt spend money on something that does not work.
It had been a long time since i had used a program which converted pdf to word. This program did it with ease and I am glad I have the PDF Professional. It works great for me for the little bit that I need it for . Thank You!
Everything I was looking for and more. 5/5
This app has everything I could want to do in order to annotate my PDF lectures for school. My favorite feature is the ability to make an outline of the slide on the sidebar. Often, having a long PDF can get confusing with the topics and subtopics that are covered. The outline allows you to link that PDF page to the outline and name it whatever you like, and to make sub-sections in the outline. I also really like how easy it is to highlight and add text boxes. Also, there are so may color options for both if these feature if you right click the highlighted text or box and choose the "colors" option!
Does not show that in app purchase is required. 1/5
I am very upset that it did not show that an in app purchase was needed.
Marking Up Articles 4/5
I have used the free version for a few weeks. I am a student and do a fair share of article reading. My main purpose for getting this application is to mark up PDF articles using an external tablet and pen. Mac's Preview app and Adobe's app were not user friendly for this task. PDF Professional has worked great for me.
WORST SUPPORT 1/5
I was about to buy the program but sent an email first to Support asking if I can actually EDIT a PDF - not insert notes or whatever. Their response was: Here's a PDF "demo."
In other words they can't answer a simple question????
Thanks, moving on to the next App and your competition. You should FIRE all your support personnel (assuming you have more than 1).
False Advertising 1/5
THIS IS NOT A FREE APP, HARDLY ANY FUNCTIONALITY WITHOUT "UPGRADING"! Listen, I'm all for paying a fair price for goods and services. What I cannot tolerate is when you present yourself as a "free" product and then to use any functionality beyond what someone already has built in to thier Mac, you want to charge for it. It's deceitful, duplicitous and deliberate and I will not tolerate it. Your price is more than fair, just advertise it for what it is. You have lost me as a potential user/customer, but maybe this will help you find other ones.
Great app, but could use some improvements :) 3/5
Great app in place of pdf expert but there are a few things I wish were a little easier: 1st I wish I could put images on my pdf and be able to import them, 2nd I would like if I could change the font size more easily with a tool bar on the side instead of having to go to the tools tab at the top, 3rd, I wish I could change the color of the pen tool more easily, idealy before I start using it instead of having to go up to the tool menu and select my desired color after I select what I have drawn, and 4th I wish that when I am adding a text box or typing that the default is not such a small box, but rather an average sized box, and that it doesn't cut off my words but rather expands to fit everything. I would love to see these improvements since I am using this app almost every day for my school work and it does work very well, it just takes too much time out of my day to color coordinate my notes or annotate my documents the way that I enjoy. If you're looking for an app to just strictly highlight and maybe once in a while draw something with the pen tool, then this would be perfect.
Does not work 1/5
Text tool nonfunctional. Unable to fill out pdf forms.
If I choose to "open with" this PDF reader, it loads and loads and loads and loads (rainbow spinny icon) and i have to Force Quit the program. Try to open it from the app icon located on the doc, and it bounces and bounces and bounces-doesn't open. I cam on here to write a review and opened via pressing the blue OPEN button fromthe app store and it opened immedialtley and allowed me to drag and drop. Still can't use the "open with" option no matter what. I don't know, it's touch and go. When it opens and allows me to drag and drop, it works great. 99% of the time I just need to view and print something for my kids homeschool assignments. Twice in the past week I've been able to use it. I typically need a PDF reader a few times a week, so when I run into problems while trying to accomplish tasks it can get frustrating.
Overall good, but has a problem 4/5
I mainly use it as a pdf file reader. The display is clear. The speed is fast. One problem: why does it not show all pages (some pages are shown blank but are visible in other pdf viewers)? Is this deliberate by design? I use the free version.
Muy bueno 5/5
Esta aplicacion es excelente para visulizar pdf
can’t use for merging. 1/5
By Ash soil12
Downloaded it only to merge 3 pdf files to make a single pdf. it can’t let me merge as it is asking me to upgrade in order to use merge. hate it.
free version works great 5/5
I have to fill out a PDF form as part of my job. With the free version I’m able to open the PDF, fill in the boxes, save it, and reopen and edit it as often as I need to. I can’t use any of the fancy options, but I don’t need them. If the only thing you need to do is fill in and save the form, the free version works fine. I can also open and read PDF documents and books. Again, I can’t use any of the extra options. The only thing I wish I could do but can’t is search within a docment or book. If I want to do that I put the document on my Kindle and search for what I want on there. So far, I’ve been using the free version for several months and it’s been exactly what I need and has worked perfectly.
So few features available, can barely test the free version. 1/5
WIthin 10 seconds of downloading, I learned I couldn’t even add an image of a signature without buying the full version. Can’t exactly test an app if the basic functionalities you want to try don’t even have a 24-hour trial.
Half the functiones mentioned here are not free but available if you pay for an upgrade.
Actually A Pretty Good Program. 5/5
The first document I chose was a MONSTER 280Mb!!!
It took 30-45 seconds to open.
Once open it navigated quickly and was snappy.
I highlighted a word and chose save. Beachball.
5 minutes later I force quit.
Not a fair test as most other PDF programs I have would have failed also.
I opened a 1.1Mb next.
Very snappy and quick.
I'm impressed so far.

Bad Product, MAC App Should Refund 1/5
I intended to purchase Adobe Acrobat but somehow I purchased this product. Since I purchased it, I thought I should try out the product. NON-usable whatsoever without any helpful manuals on the website. Tried to get a refund but Mac App Store said it was unrefundable. Do NOT purchase.
False Advertising 1/5
This application advertises as being able to convert pdf documents into word documents. The impression is that it can optically recongize text which is false. It does no such thing. It merely exports an image file which any pdf reader can do free of any charge or cost. Also, I noted that it does nothing more than OS X’s native ‘Preview’ does. So the $39.99 price is not justified at all.
I will never purchase anything from the App Store again directly because of this last purchase. Apple obviously does not check the integrity of the apps it sells in its App Store and a waste of money and time is guaranteed for all unwary shoppers.
Avoid PDF Professional and buyer beware in this App Store.
Reduced Capabilities 2/5
No digital signature nor page compilation capabilities as in previous versions. I will seek my money back.
No support to merge PDF 1/5
Clearly claims to support PDF merge. No such feature in the software.
