I find Formmate to be exactly what a utility is supposed to be: a big help in getting a specific job done. I don't own or use Acrobat or Photoshop. This far less expensive utility gives me a capability I really value: the capacity to fill out and send PDF forms easily. Anyone who complains that it doesn't work, or doesn't do what it advertises, must not have taken the few minutes needed to understand how it works. It has great shortcuts and time-saving techniques. Since I receive my faxes through a service that sends them to my email inbox I can just open the arriving file, "print" it to PDF, open it in Formmate, add whatever is needed, including my signature, save it as a PDF and then send it out from my Mac. In other words, there is no paper needed and I can send a professional-looking, completed form very quickly.
