Despite our human penchant to adopt the latest and greatest, sometimes what once was is better than what is.
Take PDF documents. They’re a good way to share documents across multiple platforms. Some PDF readers give you note taking or annotation tools, otherwise, a PDF is one, big, long piece of digital paper.
The blast from the past is HyperPDF, and easier way to read and annotate PDF files on your Mac. The claim to fame is simple. HyperPDF takes away the long vertical scrolling required to view big PDFs, and puts it all into a page-turning book format.
Turn the PDF’s pages just like you would in a book (only use the controls or mouse pointer or gesture swipes on the trackpad).
What about notes? HyperPDF handles annotation superbly. Drop in Stickies-like text notes and draw right on the PDF page. Change fonts and colors as needed.
HyperPDF’s sidebar gives you a way to scroll through the pages vertically so you can get to a page anywhere in the document within seconds.
If the PDF’s text is selectable, you can highlight and underline passages. Also, add shapes and notes on any spot on the page. This is nicely done and pleasant to use.
