Converts to other formats well - I’m still a big fan of Preview, but this app does do certain things well. For example, it converted a very long PDF document to text so quickly I thought it had failed - until I examined the file. If you do want to use it as your default PDF viewer, OS X makes that easy. Simply open the Get Info box on any PDF file, change the "Open with:” drop down to PDF Reader++, and then click on the “Change All…” button below that. You’re done. I couldn’t resist giving it a great review because it’s no fault of PDF Reader++ that it fails to provide an unnecessary alternate way of doing this.
Just a slightly modified copy of Skim - I believe PDF Reader++ is just a slightly modified copy of Skim, a well-known PDF reader that's available open-source at SourceForge. I like Skim a lot and use it frequently -- but I'd rather use the original, not a modified version with a different name :-(

Handy tool - easy to use and the price is right - This app works quite well, and has functioned without a glitch, to date. Some of the other readers do not allow copying text to other formats - this one does. While it is not full blown tool, it does what you need it to do and the right price.
PDF - It has worked well for me.
Now, hoping for support - Scanned a page of text yesterday, saved as pdf. I cannot make this app do anything with it. Have contacted support. Am hoping to change my rating to five stars with an app that's working.
