Too many developers make big promises, write ambiguous text for marketing and don't provide a functional product. That's why we demand a demo. Show me your stuff works and I'll pay for it. No demo? No Trial? No Money for You!!

I would like to see a trial also, if only for an hour. I know it is only $3, but that is $3.

[not a review] Two comments: 1. People are complaining about not getting a trial version of a $3 piece of software? Wow. 2. I don't see that this does anything not accomplished by the very well-done piece of software named Skim. So, I don't need a trial to save enough money to buy a cup of coffee, if I was desperate to do so.

Here's the problem: this app seems to say it can "edit them" when referring to PDFs, but it is NOT clear on what it means. The Feature list actually doesn't mention being able to EDIT the existing text of PDFs. So, basically, this thing seems suspicious. Does it actually let you modify existing text and images within PDFs, or just put your own notes on top? If the latter, then Skim already does that. For example, in Skim, you can put a white rectangle over a section of a PDF, then put new text over that (trying to match fonts), then save that as a final PDF. However, you have not truly "edited" the existing text/images of the original PDF. I suspect that this thing does no more than Skim, and perhaps not as well as Skim. Interestingly, the screen-shot shows similar tools to Skim. Also, Skim is open source, and under a BSD license, so there's a chance (without my knowing this or even looking!) that this was based on Skim's source code, since the license would probably allow that. Still, if that is the case, it seems deceptive to call (name!!) this a PDF "editor" when it is really an annotator. Adobe Acrobat is a PDF editor - you can change the existing text and images of PDFs.

I find your response offensive for two reasons:

1. Monetary. I normally try at least five different apps and buy the one I like most. Each month I probably evaluate 10 or 20 trial software versions. So by your reasoning, I shouldn't complain because "wow," it's only $30 to $60 per month if all the apps are $3!

2. Capitalism. If the free market is to produce better software, then the best developers need to sell the most software. If I have to pay just to try out software, then I will end up evaluating less software, and I won't be able to judge which is the best. Furthermore, the mediocre developers will earn a profit from sales they don't deserve. It is because of this that I view the MAS as a user-hostile service. Users either pay vast sums to try out a bunch of apps, or they choose based on reviews and hope the apps they buy serve their needs.

Basically if a person blows $3 on crapware, that person doesn't just lose $3, he also improperly rewards a crapware developer. Whether the former or latter is worse will depend on the individual's income, but either way it's just wrong.
