PDFpen for iPad and Mac on sale for 50% off

PDFpen by Smile Software lets you easily fill in, annotate, and otherwise work wonders with PDF files, and what's even better - there are versions for both the iPad and the Mac. I've used them for everything from marking up ebooks for editing on my iPad, to filling out government forms on my Mac, and they've worked terrifically well each and every time.

They're both well worth the full price, but you can get either one or both right now for 50% off. If you frequently find yourself dealing with PDF, save yourself some Adobe-pain and check out PDFpen, and then let me know what you think!

Hello Rene,

Boy, when you wrote, "save yourself some Adobe-pain," it really resonated with me! I have Acrobat X and I was under the assumption that it was Adobe's flagship .pdf product. Either way, it's got to be one of the most frustrating bits of software I've ever used! I just don't understand why it's so hard to figure out how to edit .pdfs and I still struggle to edit text.

So, my questions are: is it just me and I just need to read a good tutorial? (Please note that I've looked and also searched the Adobe forums for answers to my questions--seems there are many others with the same text editing problems.)

Or do I need to find another program? If so, is PDFpen for Mac the best out there and can I easily edit text/text boxes in any .pdf with it?
