I use this app almost daily to squeeze down PDFs exported from Keynote. It magically turns 80MB+ PDFs from Keynote into ~10MB files without losing any quality. Tried a bunch of different apps before this one, but the combination of great UI and great results in terms of file size and quality made this one beat out the others.

It was the easiest new application I've ever acquired. One two three done. Thank you for making an app for people like me. Simple, with the results needed.

Effective and beautifully designed tool. I have nearly 600 apps and this one is among the ones I don't forget I have and I get back to use. Responsive developer as well.

I like and have been using PDF Squeezer for years...but is it compatible with Mac OS 10.11 El Capitan...or even being supported anymore? Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it and developer hasn't responded to several emails asking him. Grrr...

A great appli, but it takes too much memory. After two or three use in a row, an 8Go memory goes down to 1 or 1,5Go, it's unacceptable.

Awesome application. Really easy to use, I love the previews it generates with file size display which makes it much easier to to know what youre getting than with using PDF Shrink. Although PDF Squeezer doesn't have as many options as PDF Shrink, the results are very much similar and for a fraction of the cost of PDF Shrink. Love this app! Thank you!

Awesome app for compressing pdf files. Simple, informative and an attractive interface. I have gone completely paperless and have hundreds of pdf's that could use some compression, from now on all my large pdf's are going to be squeezed.

I test a bunch of PDF compression apps and decided this was the best one for me. Price is great. Interface is much better than others. Performed better for compressing ebooks than mac quartz filters (free) but not as well as PDF Shrink ($35). Difference was about 10% either way.
