Great App!! - This is a fantastic app and I highly recommend it to anybody who views/edits PDFs on a regular basis. Even if you don’t, it’s a very useful app to have. I was looking for a PDF App that would allow me to add, subtract and re-arrange pages on existing or new PDFs. This app does it all, and more! This is a very well-made and easy-to-use app.

Version 1.5
Review by smilebonito

DOES NOT WORK ON MacOS Sierra !! - This app was pretty good, not great, but it got the job done. I updated to Mac OS Sierra and now almost all of the functionality is gone. It barely highlights correctly anymore! No more drawing lines, circles, squares, creating text boxes, etc. That’s all gone, which makes it a far less functional than the “Preview” app that comes with your mac. OH, and you can’t zoom anymore and highlight! It zooms you out every time you try.

Useless - Pain in the neck to use. The default for text/signatures is vertical alignment. App would not allow me to rotate signature to horizontal. Waste of time. Immediately deleted the app.

Review by Sparkle4God

Crashes Repeatedly - After subscribing for two days on Friday Jan. 26, 2018 ..it is Sunday, Jan 28, 2018…I sent an email to cancel immediately and I was given an automated response that they would reach me in 3 business days. THAT IS RIDICULOUS ESPECIALLY KNOWING THE SUBSCRIPTION IS FOR 3 OR 7 DAYS…SO THAT SEEMS UNETHICAL. I WILL BE CALLING APPLE TO LET THEM KNOW ABOUT THIS APP.

Version 2.4
Review by VicofNYC

The Worst - Having purchased this application at the App store for my Mac. I have yet to get it to work. Despite having loaded it, and despite the fact it indicates I bought the installed version ($59.99), each time I try converting a PDF to WordX, it pops up a Cloud box asking me to purchase “credits” or “Log on". Why would I have paid $59.99 only to have to pay for addtional credits each time I want to convert a document? Worse, the application offers no tool whereby I could enter a purchase code to verify my license. This stuff is supposed to be easy to use. I’d say purchasing PDF Reader from the App Store is anything but.

Version 2.4
Review by HomeDocNY

Its OK but... - Im no fan of Adobe, so I tried this alternative but its lacking in some basic features. This does do basic virewing and printing of complete files acceptabley, But… It wont let me print a custom list of pages like Adobe does, Like Print Pages 1,4,7, 12-20, 72. Instead I would have to print each of those pages or ranges, one at a time. First, it starts off im Thumbnail mode all the time, cant seem to turn that off as a startup feature. Only developers need theumbnail mode, the rest of us just want to view pages in as full a screen real estate as possible. Also, the search feature is weird - it presents the hourglass for several seconds as you beging to type the first letter or letters of the search word, and it crashes ofetn after one or more searches. It doesnt highlight the search results on the viewable page, instead it opens a search results thumbnail list on the left of the scren even though search box is on the right and displayed page is in the middle. Also, there should be a navigation pane that displays current page number and first and last page number that lets you quickly navigate to top, bottom or a specific page number.

Review by Smith @TX

Greatly limiting - This updated version severely limits what you can do. It is basically a platform for selling upgrades. Stick with Preview for High Sierra! I have deleted this software.
