Skim – Add Notes Within PDF Files With the Ultimate PDF Viewer for Mac OS X

May 6, 2009 - 10 Comments

skimicon I just found out about Skim and I find it to be wildly useful for personal use, but I can imagine this could be a huge productivity booster for anyone in academia in particular. In short, Skim views any PDF files quickly as expected, but more importantly it allows you to take notes and annotate sections of the PDF file itself, how cool is that? If you’re a student, teacher, researcher, educator, or anyone using PDF files regularly, you absolutely have to try out Skim and you will thank me later.

    For the absolute ultimate in PDF browsing functionality there’s an app called YEP that is just absolutely killer! Fantastic for large or small libraries. My PDF library is about 100 gigabytes and YEP performs at lightning speeds. I’ve tried all the commercial and free viewers available and nothing compares to YEP. It’s not free unfortunately but it comes with 3 other nice apps for $10. So I guess that’s not too bad. If you’re interested you can find it here and I think even try it for free:

    Skim IMHO is the best PDF viewer for Mac. It has a small footprint and is pretty fast. And it has outstanding capabilties to annotate the PDF documents, of course.

    Skim is good. But it’s pretty sad that a blog called “OS X DAILY” hasn’t been updated in a month. . . and a good blog at that! Come on!

    Skim is much better. It has much more tools, and what is important for me, it can copy&paste the objects you made. It’s great for editing and notes adding!
