Professional PDF Assistant for your Mac

iBooks-like animation

A unique feature of PDF Assistant is the ability to view PDF documents in the traditional vertical scrolling mode or in book mode. In the book mode, the PDF document is shown in a two-page format. Users can flip pages of their document just like a real book.

Exporting notes

PDF Assistant also allows highlights and notes to be easily exported as RTF(d) files. Actually this is the only PDF application in the Mac App Store that allows you to export all of your notes and additions into a separate file (TXT, RTF, RTFD).
