This is the last of this run of Thanksgiving giveaways. There will be more soon, I promise, but Smile was generous enough to donate–in addition to the TextExpander licenses I gave away yesterday–three codes for PDFpen as well. I don’t usually run giveaways on apps I haven’t specifically reviewed, so I’ll try to roll both together here.
PDFpen is an amazing tool for anyone who works with PDF files. It can do OCR (Optical Character Recognition) on scanned documents to turn them into editable text, and it provides tools for correcting, annotating and redacting that text. It can handle digital signatures, too, so you can sign and return a PDF contract or paperwork without ever having to print or scan. It can fill forms, compress files, merge documents… it’s a workhorse and on par with Adobe Acrobat Pro in just about every regard (except for the areas it’s even better at).
The standard license for PDFpen on the App Store is US $59.99, and there’s a Pro version available for US $99.99 which adds form creation, website saving and table of contents generation. I have three App Store codes for the standard version to give away.
As always, just leave a comment on this post and you’ll be added to the list for the Giveaway Robot to randomly select from. One comment per person, please, and use a unique name to make announcing the winners easier. The drawing will take place at noon on Monday, December 5th. Drop a comment before then for a chance at a $60 app, free!
