MagicPDF is undoubtedly the leading free pdf creation application for both Mac and PC platforms. MagicPDF is an open source application based on the famous Mac eBook Reader hardware. As far as the PDF conversion and application functionality is concerned, MagicPDF comes very close to the functionality of Adobe Acrobat. This powerful PDF editor can be used both in full-fledged applications and simple PDF pages.
All the commonly used functionalities of Adobe Acrobat such as search bar, toolbars, menus, panes etc are available in this simple to use and operate PDF editor. You can even customize the look of the interface using various skins available with this simple to use application. MagicPDF provides you with a number of facilities such as security protection, safe storing, multiple document themes support, print preview, multiple printing capabilities, extended searching capabilities, and more, which are rarely available with other free pdf creation software. Installing a registry cleaner is also quite useful along with this application so that your computer can be protected from malicious programs such as a virus, spyware, Trojans etc.
One of the main advantages with MagicPDF over other PDF Readers available on the market today is that this software can run on both the Mac and the Windows operating systems. Although both these operating systems are designed to run in parallel and share the same data structures, it still helps to have a PDF viewer which can read and write files in different systems easily. Another major advantage with MagicPDF is that it can be used both on Mac OS X as well as Windows Vista operating systems. A simple click on the icon allows you to view the selected file in either the normal format or as a PDF.
