Smile has released PDFpen 5.7 and PDFpenPro 5.7, both of which add support for accessing PDF files using iCloud. With these latest releases, you can open, view, move, rename, delete, and preview PDF files stored on iCloud. If you purchased either version of PDFpen from the Mac App Store, the keys to your iCloud kingdom are already built in to the 5.7 release. However, if you purchased either application through Smile directly, you’ll also need to buy the $0.99 PDFpen Cloud Access from the Mac App Store. Additionally, Smile released PDFpen for iPad 1.0 (available from the App Store for $9.99), which provides many of the same PDF-manipulation features of the desktop software as well as the new iCloud integration. ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 41.6 MB)
Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard
Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.
