THE GO TO - why would you use anything else?

PDFgear is a rare find in the sea of PDF applications. Where most free options only offer "read-only" access, this amazing app enables you to do nearly everything the paid versions can—and it won't cost you a dime.

The developer deserves high praise for this achievement. I learned that when they couldn't find an app that met their own needs, they resolved to build it themselves. Now we all reap the benefits of their ingenuity and generosity.

Beyond its price tag (or lack thereof!), PDFgear is a phenomenal app. Streamlined, intuitive, and efficient, it handles any task with ease. It can convert to and from PDF in virtually any format. For individuals and businesses alike, this is a solution you simply can't pass up...

Stop reading and start downloading - PDFgear delivers in every way!

Overall great

Few suggestions
- Add a feature to copy-paste images in rather than having to add them as a file
- It would be nice if the "add blank page" feature added the page where you are rather than opening up the whole page menu

Just Say No to Propoganda ,


Yes I understand this is a free app and it appears to do a lot for free- but there are still likely to be some "wants". However, I don't think it's too much to want a signature in any other color besides WHITE on a WHITE document; And preferably a different font other than a very elementary school block lettering. Not professional at all and will not be able to use for business documents while traveling. I will have to delay contracts until I get home to my old Mac desktop with an older Adobe which still lets me do this without a subscription...

Developer Response ,

Thank you for these suggestions! PDFgear will support more color in signature except the default one of black in later versions.
