One of the best app´s discovered in time, no more Preview for pdf´s here!! thanks to the authors, keep it on!!

This app instantly replaced Preview as my PDF reader of choice.

This application is totally awesome! Reading and annotating pdfs on screen is something I do extremely often and I'm infinitely grateful to the authors of this little gem. Another great feature is that it's presentation mode is much better than Preview's one (no obnoxious floating window, working "end" and "home" buttons). Great work!

I used it, loaded up several docs and it worked flawlessly...

I can see Skim being my main PDF viewer.

didn't know that it was a first release when i got it from the apple downloads page. has been working like a final release - great app!

For a first release this is impressive (and usable). No crashes for me yet. Problems with highlighting in 2 column text. Nevertheless I look forward to this maturing.

Tofu also rocks!

I'm still waiting for a PDF viewer/annotater that allows me to select a specific string of text and attach a note to it, much like making comments in MS Word.

This is a newly born app. It shows potential but in 5 minutes it crashed twice. I'll be waiting for a more polished version.
