Yep is an interesting application. It tags, sorts and manages your PDF files. I sports a very Web 2.0 interface that is fast and filled with nice touches like a preview-on-hover and fast browse by tag.
If you deal with or create a lot of PDF’s, the Yep is your new Finder. If tags aren’t your thing then Yep supports collections that bear a striking resemblance toiTunes playlists.
The Open Source community has offered us some powerful alternatives to commercial pro design tools. Scribus is a mature Open Source page layout program that exports to PostScript and PDF.
Scribus is very feature-complete and sports a decent Aqua interface (unlike Inkscape’s nasty X11). Installation of the additional required frameworks is a bit of a pain, but the application is worth the trouble.
Don’t need to create a new PDF? Just need to rearrange some pages? PDFMergeX lets you reorder, add and remove pages in PDF files. This is especially useful with the way some document sprint to PDF in OS X.
Happy 8 Acrobat!
