PDFpen 2 is the a powerful app that lets you highlight, markup, edit, fill, and even sign PDFs.

Your PDF library. PDFpen 2 provides iOS device owners with a mini-library of all of their important PDF files. These can sync between iOS devices using iCloud, or you can activate a "sync folder" in a cloud service like Dropbox, and have changes sync with the service as you edit and change documents. No matter what device you're using, your PDFs will always be available no matter where you go.

Your PDF library
Correct text, make highlights

Correct text, make highlights. You can engage with the text of your PDFs directly in PDFpen 2. For instance, you can highlight words or sentences which stand out as important, or you can even correct text in PDFs that is incorrect. If your PDF has a form built into it, you can complete that form using PDFpen 2 on your iOS device. It's never been easier to deal with PDF forms thanks to your iOS devices.

Print and share. You can also print or share your documents using email. Printing can be executed using Apple's AirPrint protocol. Plus, a range of other options are also available to activate in PDFpen 2's settings (like TextExpander support, for instance). It's an all-round essential app when you have to deal with PDF files in the office.

What is it about?

PDFpen 2 is the latest iteration of the powerful PDF editing software from Smile. The app has a slick interface that is rather easy to navigate and use. Just get those PDFs in to PDFpen 2 from iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, Photo Library, and other sources. Then you can easily view them or take action on them, such as highlighting important sections, mark up and edit what needs to be corrected, fill out sections, or even just sign it. Once you're done, you can just save it and send it off to where it needs to go. No fuss!

For those who...

  • Work with PDFs on a daily basis
  • Need to do a lot of things to PDFs

Not for those who...

  • Don't work with PDFs
  • Don't have to do much other than fill out and sign documents

Why we love it

It has a simple interface but packs quite a punch when it comes to features and tools.
