PDF reader and editor for desktop

PDF Expert for Mac is a piece of productivity software developed by Readdle, Inc. for desktop devices. It is a program that serves as a PDF reader for PDF files, as well as an editor through its set of editing tools. It also offers various annotations and page management features.

Similar to programs like Adobe Reader and Foxit Reader, PDF Expert for Mac is a fast and feature-rich PDF software that is specifically geared toward both Mac and iOS users with its cross-platform support. It is available for a one-time purchase, while a free trial is being offered to new users, as well.

What can PDF Expert for Mac do?

When you first launch PDF Expert for Mac, the reader's clean and minimalist user interface design is immediately apparent. It has three themes available to help with your reading: DaySepia, and Night. The program is also rather speedy as it's able to open thousand-page files within a few seconds. Scrolling or jumping to pages is equally impressive and is smooth as butter.

PDF Expert is a reader app, but it can also be used to modify PDFs with various tools. Edit document elements such as textimageslinks, or even reduce their file sizes. You can also make annotations, such as filling out forms or signing contracts with your e-signature. What's more, management features, such as merging files or adding page numbering are available to you.

Lastly, PDF Expert can integrate with various third-party apps and services for sharing and collaborations in addition to its cross-platform compatibility across Mac and iOS devices. Some things to take into consideration before using this program is that it lacks support for Optical character recognition (OCR) and while the trackpad signature tracking and recognition work, they could be a lot better.

Fast and feature-rich PDF reader and editor

If you're a Mac user looking for a good PDF program to use, PDF Expert for Mac is a great option to consider. The UI is nicely designed, using it is fast and fluid, and there are plenty of handy features available. Annotations, specifically document signing could be better, but aside from that, this is worth trying out.
