Juggle your PDFs easily with PDFpen 8!
These days, an ever-increasing amount of “paper” — contracts, tax forms, bills, reports, and more — comes into our lives as PDF files. We generate this virtual paper too, since it’s so much easier to save a document as a PDF and send it to a colleague via email than it is to print and send via fax or mail. To read, edit, and manipulate all these PDFs, you need appropriate tools and skills.
Given the high price of Adobe Acrobat DC Pro, many Mac users have turned to Smile's affordable PDFpen apps to help them sign PDF forms, handle scanned documents, make changes in existing PDFs, create new PDFs from a variety of sources, and even export PDFs to other file formats. With Take Control of PDFpen 8, you'll learn how to do all these tasks and more on your Mac with PDFpen or PDFpenPro or on the go with PDFpen for iPad & iPhone.
