DealBITS Drawing: SmileOnMyMac Productivity Suite

Send Article to a Friend

SmileOnMyMac has made a name for itself over the past few years by offering an increasing number of useful Macintosh applications. They're probably best known for PDFpen, their PDF editing utility, but they also develop DiscLabel for creating and printing CD/DVD labels, PageSender for sending documents as faxes, BrowseBack for providing a visual history of your Web browsing, TextExpander for speeding entry of repetitive bits of text, and PhotoPrinto for designing and printing photo albums and scrapbooks. A number of SmileOnMyMac's products have appeared in DealBITS in the past; now they've brought together all their products in the SmileOnMyMac Productivity Suite. Normally, these applications would cost over $200 if purchased separately, but together they cost only $129.
