Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

PDFsam Basic reviews

The basic free version has all the capabilities that I need! It lets me split and merge PDFs in addition to other things. All I need to do is to drop the PDFs, reorder them, and select merge. It also has an option to normalize the sizes of pages so that the merged file has a consistent page size throughout the document. Splitting PDFs is equally easy! Just select the file and set how you want it to be separated; like each page or after a specific page. And of course you can opt in to pay a fee and use the enhanced version which has more capabilities but for my basic needs, the free version is more than enough.

Overall, I am very happy with this piece of software -- it is reliable, available at little to no cost, and easy enough to train users on and recommend. I wish it were available on a platform like Ninite so that it would be easier to install with other utilities at the same time. I have no hesitation recommending this software.

An excellent tool and very easy to use, it is perhaps one of the most important features, and the updates that are notified to the user allow them to incorporate new features that increase the level of satisfaction.

Platoforms reviews

The software was easy for me to use, I had looked around for a while for a software that could allow me do an online form and then I landed on PlatoForms Software served all my needs, it did exactly what I wanted. I really love the software, so convenient, I got instant email notifications for a new submission, easy to manage all my submissions. So honestly I love the software.

Love the ability to easy collect patients info from a form on a website and have it ready on a PDF for print or safe save.

- Robert Perez Owner of Robi Joe Studio

It gives me the freedom to design a document how I want it to appear and then the software adds the functionality of inputting data. It creates a branding opportunity and some image recognition. I also love the clone function if you ever need to change something. It also does a great job of saving the files to specific locations with specific file names for easy organizing. The input options are great and make the user-experience easy. I love that you can upload a CSV file for dropdown options rather than having to type them out every time I want to use a list.

Pros & cons

PDFsam Basic

Super easy to work with
It has most features you are probably looking for in order to edit, compile, merge or whatever else you might have to do with PDF files
It makes a nice easy to review document -- and this is all the more beneficial when working remotely as has been the case for the past year or so
PDFsam is user user-friendly, versatile, reliable, capable of high-quality resolutions, and consistently free of charge
Wonderful, I will continue to use this software for the rest of my life
It is a crucial tool to have."

The only complaint i have would be the cost of the product, I think it should cost a little less
I will switch to Nitro PDF and know exactly what I am getting
And their customer service is awful
Also, each time you use the program, duplicate PDFsam icons appear, which can be confusing
Then I began receiving prompts to upgrade to PDFSam Enhanced
I then started having problems with PDFSam Basic."


The input options are great and make the user-experience easy
I love that you can upload a CSV file for dropdown options rather than having to type them out every time I want to use a list
Support was great, despite the time difference they were very responsive to our needs
We appreciate the ability to customize the questions or information fields we are using to gain information from potential and existing clients.

They don't need to go to the office to drop the new contracts
I have many offices in the country so I was blind and dependent because all sales information was on paper
"I have to clone the form to add a new pdf design and by that sometimes I loose my old filled forms
Incremental code have can't be controled completely when I have to clone form
"Very difficult to discuss anything with anyone from Platoforms.
