The IndexMaker creates an index from PDF documents.
(Not only for Apple Pages users who miss a index function.)

Select a PDF file or an whole folder as source for your index.
Create a index of all words in the document(s) (full text index) or just for some specified words (target word index).
Edit the result by filtering out the stopwords (the, it, a, and...) or by substitute the flections (trees-> tree)
You can annotate every item or subordinate it under a umbrella term.
Determine how the addresses should be formated (e.g. 1-5 or 1ff.).
You can export the index als PlainText, PDF or HTML file. For print- and PDF export you are be able to select the font type and size.

Unusable - The menu makes no sense, the help page gets error messages. This does not belong on the App Store.

Nice! - Very useful to create an index involving several pdf references for quick searching. The only reason for the four stars is that there is an image for this app with four columns neatly arranged that I just can’t achieve.

Version 3.5
Review by Max Hume

Design needs improvement, but nothing else comes this close - Most indexing software is anywhere from $500–1000: prohibitively expensive, in other words. As such, I’ve never used them. I’m using this program to compose an index for an academic book. Is it pretty? No. Are its functions “discoverable” in the way that the best Apple software is? No. Furthermore, there are some crucial functions missing, such as the ability to identify page numbers prior to “1” (e.g., v, vi, vii, etc.—though it’s possible I just haven’t discovered how to use this function). Honestly, it feels like an “alpha” program. But there’s not really any other option unless you can afford one of those enterprise-grade programs, and it does most of what an indexer would need to do.
