If you’re looking for a no-fuss, straightforward way to create invoices, estimates, sales invoices and more, Easy Invoice PDF Invoice Generator is a simple PDF-based solution. Unlike cloud-based billing and invoicing apps like FreeAgent or Zoho Books, you won’t find tons of templates, tracking or fancy analytical features in Easy Invoice but it’s very easy to use, converts everything straight into PDF format and can sync everything with your iPhone or iPad.

Easy Invoice can produce documents that include all of your estimates, sales invoices, and receipts which you can then send instantly to clients. Anything that’s sent from your Mac, you can also choose to sync with your iPhone and iPad. In addition to this, you can export them to the developer’s more advanced bookkeeping software Easy Books, which offers a complete account management solution.

Easy Invoice is easy to get started with and you should begin by entering the product or service you’re selling and its price. So for example, if you’re a selling a service, you must enter the name of the service and how much it costs per hour. The same goes for if you’re selling a product – whatever your work is, you have to enter it first. Once you’ve defined what you’re selling and their prices, it’s then very easy to itemize work in invoices.


Several weeks ago, tired of waiting for iBooks for the Mac, I put together a roundup of the best eBook apps for the Mac. I tested over a dozen apps, discovered more bugs and weird rendering than I ever had in one session, and came to the conclusion that Adobe Digital Editions was the best app for reading ePub eBooks on a Mac, non-native UI aside.

Then, in the comments, Igor let me know about Clearview, an eBook reading app I’d somehow missed. Clearview, it turned out, was the missing eBook reading app for the Mac that I’d managed to not discover. Here’s why it’s the best alternate to Apple’s iBooks on the Mac today.


If you’re like me and are completely in love with your Doxie scanner, then you’ll no doubt be scanning almost anything you can get your hands on, whether it needs scanning or not! It’s a great first step towards de-cluttering your desk and making everything as easy to find as possible. And even if you don’t have a Doxie, there’s a ton of other great scanners out there that can quickly turn all of your paper into digital documents.

But once you’ve scanned all your paperwork, what do you actually do with it? That’s where iDocument comes in. Could it be the app your paperless workflow needs?


After email, the PDF file format is the one that many users complain about, a lot. The file format is now ubiquitous and each one of us end up having a handful of them for either personal or professional use. PDF files are extremely light weight, keep the document structure intact and in most cases can be accessed even without a specific app installed.

The locked down nature of the PDF format is a major bottleneck though. It’s tough to add notes, annotations or to search the contents of the PDF files in your hard drive. But, it might not be a problem going forward. Turn your collection PDFs into a functional and searchable PDF library with the help of FingerPDF. After the break let us see how exactly to do that!


Due to its cross-compatibility and wide range of uses, the PDF has been a wildly popular document type for years. Despite the ubiquity of the PDF, there has been relatively little innovation in way we view and interact with these documents. Most PDF viewers simply show you the file with no bells or whistles.

HyperPDF from NeoMobili aims to break the boring mold of PDF viewers by introducing some new ways to read, markup, edit, and share your documents. Are the features worth an upgrade from your current PDF client?


PDF has become a worldwide document type standard and you no doubt deal with these documents fairly regularly. Because the file tpye is so common there is a plethora of applications available to work with them.

It can be a bit tricky to wade through the large number of choices though, so I’ve attempted to pull out ten of the most useful apps for performing various functions. Everything from simply managing your PDF files to editing, extracting and more.


I don’t think that I’m alone in the annoyance I feel when I’m asked to sign something over the Internet. This usually means having to to print PDFs so that I can sign them, after which I have to then re-scan them. Even though it’s a situation that we don’t encounter too often, it still happens from time to time, which means from time to time, we want to pull all of our hair out. For example, as a freelancer, I sometimes have clients who ask me to sign contracts in order to begin work for certain old-fashioned websites.

Today we are reviewing an app called Signature. The makers behind this app want to help you sign these documents without having to print or scan anything. How does it do it? Let’s see.


I’d like to take a moment to say a big thank you to our fantastic weekly sponsor, PDFpen.

If you regularly work with (or need to edit) PDF documents, PDFpen can be an absolute life saver. It has a friendly, easy-to-use interface, with a feature set that rivals that of Acrobat Pro.

You can pick up the standard version for $59.95, or opt for PDFpenPro which includes powerful tools for converting a website into a multi-page PDF, creating PDF forms, and automatically building a table of contents ($99.95).

PDFs are in part designed so that they cannot be edited. However, often you may need to change or correct something in a PDF document. PDFpen from SmileOnMyMac is a wonderful tool that lets you do just that.

Though important, the ability to edit text is only a small part of PDFpen’s abilities. This review will investigate what can be achieved using this application; from merging pages to character recognition, as well as what could be improved.
