The best PDF editor in MacOS

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: It is one of the programs, along with the web browser, that I use the most. Reading, signing, editing PDFs... it does it fast and well. Without complications.

Pros:

After suffering with Adobe programs for years, finding PDF Expert was the best thing in years. It really has it all. Simplicity, speed and features you would expect in more expensive programs.

Cons:

The subscription craze. I don't agree with them, but I understand that behind such a program there is a lot of work and equipment to maintain.

Fantastic Mac-only alternative to Adobe Acrobat Pro

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I have been using Readdle PDF Expert for many years now to make light changes to PDFs (changing some text, deleting certain elements) as well as adding annotations to PDFs. It is extremely easy to use at a great price. I highly, highly recommend it for the vast majority of PDF editing needs.

Pros:

Readdle PDF Expert is a fairly powerful PDF editor and creator. It has most of the features you'll need from a PDF editor, such as merging PDF documents, deleting pages from a PDF, annotations, signature support, the ability to delete certain PDF elements, and even the ability to edit existing PDF text. In addition, it has a very clean and straight forward interface that is very easy to learn and understand. It offers both subscription pricing (at $12.49/month or $50/year) as well as a fantastic perpetual standalone license option at $99 (that price does not include major program updates though).

Cons:

PDF Expert isn't quite as powerful as Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and perhaps more importantly (for some) it is a Mac-only app.

Awful customer service

1.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

I've been a loyal user of PDF Expert for several years now, and have found the functionality good for Mac. Unfortunately, my recent experiences with their customer support have left me deeply disappointed.

Cons:

One of the most frustrating aspects of dealing with PDF Expert's support team is their communication process. Rather than addressing issues promptly and efficiently, they rely solely on email correspondence, which often leads to prolonged resolution times. Instead of gathering all necessary information upfront, they ask a series of questions over multiple emails, dragging out the process unnecessarily. Their support team places a significant burden on customers by requesting detailed information and requiring video recordings to diagnose problems effectively. This level of demand is unreasonable and impractical for many users, ultimately hindering rather than assisting in problem resolution. In my most recent encounter, I've been experiencing difficulties downloading the app and encountered issues with corrupted files. Despite reaching out for assistance, I've been waiting for six days without a satisfactory resolution in sight. The lack of phone or screen share support further exacerbates the situation, leaving customers feeling stranded and unsupported. Adding insult to injury, PDF Expert lacks a mechanism for providing refunds, further limiting options for dissatisfied customers. In conclusion, do not invest in PDF Expert. Despite its functional capabilities, the lackluster customer support and cumbersome resolution process overshadow any benefits the app may offer. Save your money and avoid the frustration of dealing with a support team that seems more interested in prolonging your inconvenience than resolving your issues.

Better control and markup of PDFs

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I like this product a lot, I switched from Adobe, it seems to be a better value.

Pros:

I like how it works seamlessly across many devices, including my phone, tablet, and desktop. All changes are reflected across all devices. Works great with a pen!

Cons:

Sometimes hard to navigate files, finding files can be a bit difficult. The UX for file browsing is not super intuitive.

Great PDF APP

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: We record audiobooks and have several directors working with texts in several different studios on iPads. iAnnotate was proving a disaster, basically because it was so hard to find documents and sync them quickly. PDF expert is very good for our business.

Pros:

Ease of use. Ease of locating files. It's simple to create new pdfs from exitsing files; easy to extract pages and rearrange them. Good and easy synching with Dropbox and Google Drive.

Cons:

Navigation (wish it had more ways to navigate through large pdfs.) Simpler and clearer bookmark functions.It's the ONLY thing I miss from iAnnotate. wish it has a progress bar through the document.
