      "Doesn't work....."

      April 12, 2012   |   By rpjb

      Version: PDFpen 5.7.2

      Pros

      I bought this software for one specific purpose : to fill in a lengthy and complex British inheritance tax pdf form, so I can't rate the other aspects of this software.

      Cons

      Didn't work ! There was a title selection Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms and PDFpenPro couldn't manage it : the whole pdf page was blocked because of this !

      I lost a lot of time tryi,g to solve this issue but to no avail...

      Very disappointing !

      "Very simple image with text and bullets ... fail!"

      February 13, 2011   |   By alvaritof

      Version: PDFpen 5.2.1

      Pros

      Free ... only because I HAVE to write some pros.

      Cons

      On the free version on a PDF you are allowed to convert only the first page and that may be a very simple text ... should allow you to pick a page.

      Summary

      Awful, very simple text and some lines with bullets was read as a complete garbage.

      "Good Value for your money"

      October 28, 2010   |   By TKirsch

      Version: PDFpen 5.0.2

      Pros

      It has all the basics for text and graphic editing that you will ever need. Smile is doing a great job of adding features for the same price. Subscribe to their news letter.

      Cons

      Not sure why it has to be so difficult to add lines of different weights or text boxes with different font sizes. Perhaps they will expand the pallets for simplicity one day.

      "Clever Application"

      October 24, 2010   |   By billhilton--2008

      Version: PDFpen 5.0.2

      Pros

      It's relatively low cost way to edit (manipulate) pdf files. It certainly isn't Adobe "writer" but it meets the simple needs I have.

      Cons

      It is relatively difficult to learn for an app of limited capabilities.

      Summary

      I like using this app for the simple pdf editing needs I encounter.

      "Amazing, amazingly cheap, PDF-everything application!"

      September 09, 2010   |   By berksguy2010

      Version: PDFpen 5.0.1

      Pros

      Everything, drag and drop anything and everything out of and into existing pdf documents

      Cons

      Nothing I can think of.

      Summary

      You are crazy if you dislike this app. It's pretty much flawless, imo. I use it as a reader and editor.

      "Pointless - won't do what I need"

      September 01, 2010   |   By tasha13662

      Version: PDFpen 4.7

      Pros

      None since at this point I need one feature which it lacks.

      Cons

      Won't save data in a fillable PDF if it is not allowed in the original. Other restrictions from the original are also "respected." Nice thought, but makes the program completely useless for me.

      Summary

      I wanted a program to allow me to save data that I entered into a fillable PDF. I also want to have the ability to go back and edit that data. This program WON'T do this if it is not allowed in the original document. When I "Save" my document, it changes not only the formatting (minor, but still different) and deleted all of the data I entered. So, for my needs, this program is pointless and useless.

      "Achieves many things I can't do any other way"

      August 06, 2010   |   By JohnCrook

      Version: PDFpen 4.7

      Pros

      Very strong on adding graphis (e.g signatures) to existing pdfs.

      Cons

      Some of the functions are a bit fiddly to use.

      Summary

      I really enjoy using pdfPen though I haven't tried the Pro version.

      Customer support is amazing and very helpful. Each time I've had a query, I have received a very helpful response within an hour or so.

      "No go with Snow Leopard"

      July 11, 2010   |   By maxigar1

      Version: PDFpen 4.7

      Pros

      Potentially v good app.

      Cons

      Very temperamental-now it works, now it doesn't.

      Summary

      I'd love to be able to alter PDFs swiftly and without hassle. This has not happened yet for me and I've wasted a lot of time trying to get this to work properly.

      "Difficult interface, pricey"

      December 26, 2009   |   By TKirsch

      Version: PDFpen 4.5.3

      Pros

      If you need a pdf editor and don't want to spend the big bucks for Adobe Writer this should be your next purchase. It works fine and gives you text and graphics editing tools and colors, text boxes, etc.

      Cons

      Since I don't use it all the time, there is a learning curve each time. The user interface is confusing. It cost much less when I bought it, around $30.00.
