Impressed - I had default Adobe reader, but it is so slow, so I was looking for simple pdf reader and this is perfect. It scroll pages so slowly. Thank you….

Nagware - COULD be good if it weren’t for the incredibly annoying nagware that pops up every 15 minutes saying “buy pro, buy pro.” Here’s the thing: I don’t want the features for pro and so I’m not going to pay almost $10 for something I’m not going to use. Charge a couple bucks for this version, fine. I’ll buy. But don’t give it away just so you can advertise your more expensive and unnecessary pro version.

Review by DrAveritt

I want my money back!!! - It doesn’t edit a PDF. I simply wanted to take a line out of an existing PDF, to make it easier to read (too big of a gap). It will not delete a line. It will not copy and paste so I can edit in word. Totally worthless. Please refund my money!!!

Review by NeedNameThatIstTaken

Excellent - I've now used it for two months and it's the best PDF reader I've experience for reading academic articles. It's snappy and reminds me of replacing my web browser with Chrome when it first came out. Can easily add native PDF annotations and search through the existing ones. (And it saves them fast when you close the file. Competitors either do this slowly or, like Skim, use a non-native annotation format that can't be read by other PDF readers.) Draggable tabs. Plays nicely with Zotero. The UI for "find" displays a lot of info intuitively. Everything is just well designed. I haven't yet run into a limitation on the free version, and upgrading to pro is only $20 anyways. It used to crash from time to time when it came out in late 2017, but this appears to have been fixed as of Feburary 2018! (That's why I'm upgrading my review from 4 stars to 5 stars.) If there are old reviews complaining about crashes, keep that in mind. I prefer it over these other PDF readers on maxOS that I have tried: FoxIt, Preview, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Skim.

Lies lies lies - This isn’t an editor. Period. Misleading name.
