A week ago, Lifehacker published a list of 5 best PDF applications. They are all closed source and some cost money. Nothing wrong with it, but I thought that many open source alternatives exist. So I made a list of open source PDF applications I'm using. Some very often and some occasionally.
- Sumatra: a lightweight PDF viewer for Windows [blog.kowalczyk.info]
- PDFCreator: a PDF printer for Widows (prints PDF's from any application) [www.pdfforge.org]
- PDFsam: crossplatform splitting and merging PDF documents [www.pdfsam.org]
- PDFEdit: a powerful PDF editor for Linux [sourceforge.net]
- PDF import extension for OpenOffice 3: a nice crossplatform PDF editor (for OOo Draw or Impress) [extensions.services.openoffice.org]
- Skim & Formulate pro: PDF annotating for OS X: [skim-app.sourceforge.net] [code.google.com]
- Ghostscrip and Ghostview :) [pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/]
I might have missed some. In my opinion these are nice tools that can do pretty much everything wtih PDFs.
