This appears to be abandonware. The download link leads to a dead server. Even the link for this developer at the Mac App Store associated with this app leads to a site for another app entirely. Too bad. This product looks like it would have fit the bill nicely for me...

The PDF Reader is good. The main advantage is that I am able to read a PDF eBook for a longer period of time. The usual tools for annotating, marking, making notes is also a very big plus. Probably the best among the PDF readers for its ease of use.

I purchased the PDF Assistant Pro from MU daily deal. Now the progtam is renamed and updated to v1.3 but will not take my s/n. Developer's site will not allow any help. Take caution if you are considering purchasing.

Developer responded immediately and fixed my issue and web site. THANKS!!! This is a GREAT program. Only suggestion would be to have the Table Of Contents window stick around after selecting a page.

Kenneth, just open the Preferences, tab Popover Windows and uncheck "Close automatically when not in use". This will stick the Table Of Contents window.

This is a great PDF Program! One suggestion: Have the Table Of Contents window stay open. Now it disappears after selecting a page. Very unproductive if your searching for something. Also fix your support page so a new account can be created for your forum. Now clicking on Register leads to the login page. No way to register. Thanks ... Ken

Curious: A certain Leo Mesentsev gives this app five stars. Of course he would; he's the seller. :) Are sellers/developers allowed to rate their own apps on MacUpdate.com? Clearly that skews the star ratings — especially if not many "real users" have shared their experiences yet.

No trial period? Forget it! I suppose we are to buy it on blind faith and if we don't like it attempt to get out money back.
