Why? The Preview has been doing this for years....

Some hideous Java thing that whilst ugly & clunky does seem to work for at least the basic functions that i tried it with. Works on MacOS 10.9 Go to Setting/Security & give the app permission in gatekeeper

This no longer works on 10.9. Starting it produces a dialog box stating it is damaged and cannot be opened and should be moved to the trash. I use it on 10.6.8 and came directly to 10.9 from there.

This worked where Preview did not. I had 10 pdf's to combine and Preview would not save them as a single PDF. Split and Merge did. On top of that the price is right. Great open source software.

Utterly fantastic! I love it when an app is this straightforward. Excellent work. Needed to merge two pdfs - found the app, installed and performed the merge in under 5 mins. What more could one ask?

"What more could one ask?" One could ask why people choose not to use the simple and powerful Preview that ships with OS X. Third-party software isn't required.

@Simon: You wasted 5 minutes searching for an app (and found this one) when Preview could've done the job in 30 seconds or less. Agree with @Chris Habig. Open several PDFs in Preview, slect which pages from one you want to merge with another, drag them over, and you're done. (Be sure to show the thumbnails and select thumbs to drag.)

@Chris Habig This is a cross-platform app that also exists on Linux and Windows, so it was not created specifically for OS X. It's not required on OS X, it's simply one more choice provided to us by open source software developers. Personally, I appreciate that.

Well done - @Negritude! To the individuals posting negatively - consider that the basics are understood by all here! Whilst Mac's do most stuff well - the people who create solutions that plug the gapping holes Apple leave unfilled deserve our applause. Preview does NOT play well with every iteration of a pdf - hence five stars for this app which does.

@5imon: I apologize for the remark about wasting time. It was uncalled for. However, I'm curious what kinds of issues Preview has with some PDFs? I'm definitely not trying to be critical but I am genuinely curious. For ages Review has been flawless for me, but then I'm not what you might consider a power user so I might be missing something. I will say that for certain complex PDF projects, there are any number helpful of 3rd party apps (I particularly like PDF Nomad), and if PDF S&M works better for you than Preview, more power to you.

I have used PDF SAM for a couple of years now and have found it to be very useful and stable, although the GUI could not be called intuitive. Once you get the hang of it, though, it's a good standard for splitting and merging PDF documents. And it is very fast.

It does not let you open PDF files. Can only open an XML file. The GUI is non-intuitive and does not behave like any other application. I know it is because it is a Java application... however, I have seen much better Java applications. The menus are useless and there is no help. Don't waste your time with this app.
