Review by Gokmd

Buggy and Amateurish - Terrible. Bought it for the pdf form creator.... It simply won't work. Completely non-intuitive. There's no documentation of any value. The website is completely useless. Even the menu items are mis-spelt! It is extremely buggy... I have never been compelled to write a review before.... but this time, I feel the need to warn others.
