I think it's important to note that their pricing is pretty ludicrous.
Things that would be features in another app are given individual app status here with "full" price to boot.
Certainly a lot of these features can be done by free or donation software.

In fact I wouldnt even advertise this unless I felt there was something worthwhile there (maybe there is?)

I am with tomos on this one. I have to question why there is an individual app for each and every single feature. This seems like nothing more than an attempt to exploit money from people. Heck, I can get the FULL version of adobe acrobat for less than the cost of this "deal".

I think the ancient Greeks had a word for this kind of thing: RipΩff.

There are a few features that Adobe Reader won't do (like allowing the removal of restrictions on files without the password) - which is the only one I bought.

Having said that most of these apps don't seem to be updated very often.

Heck, I can get the FULL version of adobe acrobat for less than the cost of this "deal".

Not sure were from - the list price of Adobe Acrobat is $450 - which in itself is pretty ridiculous for what it does.

There are many discounted versions around the web. If you are a student, you can get the full version of Acrobat Pro Extended for $119, Pro for $99.

If there are any students out there, check out journeyed.com or the adobe educational site.

It isn't really fair to compare prices with heavily discounted student offers.

Having said that I take the original point about A-PDF this is approach may be designed to be exploitative.

One thought though is how many people buy multiple A-PDF bits and pieces - I bought restriction remover (just to make legitimately purchased eBooks usable - I couldn't use dozens of books each with their own unique user name and password) but I won't be buying the others. To me that one purchase was worth it but I wouldn't have bought one large package costing $99 or more.
