This week's sponsor


Distraction Dimmer™ for Mac

Sponsor: Smile

Our thanks to Smile for sponsoring MacStories this week with PDFpen 6.

PDFpen makes it easy to sign PDFs, make edits to text and images, and perform OCR on scanned documents. Fill out interactive forms, adjust resolution and contrast for better legibility, and mark up PDFs for proofreading and note-taking. Export documents to Evernote and share PDFs through iCloud or Dropbox to edit your files on the go with PDFpen on the iPhone and iPad.

PDFpen 6 is optimized for the Retina Display and now takes advantage of Versions and Auto Save available in Lion and Mountain Lion, which better saves your edits from accidental loss. Take advantage of the improved resolution with the easier to use editing bar. Lastly, export your PDFs to Word documents for convenient sharing with coworkers.

PDFpen 6 is now available on the Smile Store and the Mac App Store. For a limited time, PDFpen 6 is available for only $29.99, normally retailing for $59.95.
