I concur with the others who observe that PDF Pen is "buggy as hell." Not only that, it is much less easy to use than its less-full-featured competitor, PDF Expert. They keep adding features, but they don't seem to fix long-standing bugs or update the dated UI.

Supported by SME's not *Tear*-1 help desk script readers. Just had a great support experience and they even figured out what caused the problem (CleanMyMac corrupted the app when pulling localizations) with only a few small clues. Nice call Jeff!

In terms of price performance vs Acrobat, PDFPenpro is good value BUT it is buggy as hell when dealing with any complex PDF. I've sent numerous example of files that PDFprenpro cannot handle but none of the bugs seem to ever get fixed in the endless releases. A pet hate is how sometimes the text edit tool creates a duplicate of the text to be edited but leaves original ghost test behind. Checkboxes are another major fail.

One of the ultimate PDF tools. The Pro version even better. This is a must have!

Finally, an app that does precisely what it is supposed to. I love to be able to search PDF documents that arrive without a search facility and the OCR seems to be very accurate. Further, being able to scan and save a signature is great -- something I had struggled to achieve in other ways. Good stuff.

I am not using this in a business; strictly personal use. I use PDFPro mainly creating and editing PDF's on my geneology work. If you are using this for business, I cannot express an opinion.

Getting tired of the annual upgrade procedure and limited new functions. I'm switching to PDF Expert now. PDFpen hasn't improved much for me (at least in my workflow) over the last years and still has the same layout as earlier versions.

Watched the video and thought, "This will do nicely." Unfortunately, the actually software, as has performed on Mac at least, seems to have vague similarity to the videos/written instructions. I'm sorry I wasted my money on this awkward, counter-intuitive mess.
