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)
Set Per-Folder Views in the Finder
Tired of navigating to a particular folder and having to switch to List View every time? With Finder in Leopard, you can set viewing preference for each individual folder. Just navigate to it, and set the view the way you want (Column, List, Icon, or Cover Flow). Then choose View > Show View Options (Command-J) and in the window that appears, select the Always Open In... checkbox.
