# Application for taking care of a pdf record collection

I'm seeking an application that can aid take care of a collection of pdf records. I favor open resource (or simply free beer), yet that is not definitely crucial.

I recognize quality and also utilize it usually for my e-books, consisting of those in pdf layout. Nonetheless, I would certainly such as something for more basic objective usage, specifically PDFs that are greatly - or totally - graphics based, or have percentages of message (like key-board faster way reference cards and so on, study documents, and so on).

Easy monitoring of metadata, search and also filter, and also very easy accessibility to the documents from an application user interface are the various other major needs. I do not require any kind of tool - sync or transfer capacities, all the records in this collection would certainly stay just on my MBP.

Anything around that would certainly serve in this context?

### Evernote

It is free unless you require among their premium features.

Regretfully, doing an OCR hand down uploaded PDFs is among their costs attributes, yet there are a number of workarounds : you can either OCR your PDF before uploading it to EN, or upload JPGs instead of PDFs (as Evernote OCRs JPGs).

And also talking from experience : also if you assume that you'll just require your documents at your MBP, you could be shocked just how usually it is darn convenient to have them all readily available in the cloud.
