SmileOnMyMac Updates PDFpen
SmileOnMyMac has added new link features to PDFpen 3.1, its PDF editing and form-filling tool for the Mac. Users can now add, edit and remove URL and page links to PDF documents, features that were previously available only in the Pro version.
In related news, the company also announced the release of a PDFpen retail edition. This edition is distributed by Dr. Bott and is available now at Apple Stores. The price, $49.95, is the same as the download version. The box includes a CD and a Quick Start card.
"The PDFpen box product definitely meets a need at the retail level for a reasonably priced PDF editing tool," said Philip Goward, co-founder of SmileOnMyMac.
Other minor fixes and improvements have been added to PDFpen 3.1, as well as to PDFpenPro 3.1, the Pro version that has the ability create fillable PDF forms in addition to all the features of PDFpen.
PDFpen costs $49.95. PDFpenPro costs $94.95. Upgrades from earlier versions of either application are $25.00, and free to users who purchased after July 1, 2006. Both versions require Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
Fully-functional demo versions are available at http://www.smileonmymac.com/PDFpen/download.html.
