One of the reasons OS X is great is because it has PDF conversion built right in, you simply save to PDF in the Print dialogue and you’re done. And Preview is faster than Acrobat Reader at rendering and viewing PDFs too. Unfortunately, the PDF functionality beyond saving and viewing is pretty bare bones, requiring you to resort to the command-line or various shareware products to combine, remove, or reorder pages in a PDF (or get Acrobat, of course).
The problem with a lot of these shareware products is that they ask $30-80 for their suite of functions, when all you want is just one part. This morning I was given a high-priority task to take a bunch of Excel spreadsheets and put them in a single PDF, so I went out on the web to find something to help.
I downloaded a few different ones, and found a few that I thought would meet my needs, but little did I realize I would find a product as sweet as Combine PDFs. It does just what it says, allowing you to take multiple PDFs and put them in one document, reordering or removing those pages you don’t want, all in a nice and simple UI.
This app, simply put, rocks.
