This App is a good rival to Adobe Distiller. For those that cant afford the Adobe Distiller this is a good and useful tool. It gives you enough control over creating hi or low resolution PDF files.

DO NOT compare this to the in built OSX option as save as PDF, to be honest unless you are an amatuer user only that system option sucks! You have no control over quality and limited page options.

A late answer to the poster below:
Jaws features many professional options that the in-built function doesn't have. AFAIK, Jaws is the only rival (less features but much cheaper) to Adobe Acrobat on OS X, because it produces top quality PDFs with at least the basic features.
OS X's own PDF creator might be enough for the occasional user, but it is not nearly enough for home users with ambitions, not to speak of semi-professionals or professionals. You can't even adjust the resolution and the compression delivers bad results (and most don't even find out about this option).

79$ is a fair price for this software if you compare it to the alternatives.

Version 3.4

It is better than File --> Save as PDF in many ways. When I am in any non-Apple software, such as Firefox, then I do NOT have the save as PDF option. With this installed, I can print anything.
