TextExpander: 2010 Macworld Editors Choice Award
"What makes TextExpander a great app isn’t just that it’s so handy and so capable, but also the fact that it’s constantly evolving—refining its core tools, adding new ones, and adapting to an ever-changing technology landscape.", Dan Miller

September 9, 2010, MacVoices
The Smile Software Crew Introduce the Cool New Features of PDFpen 5
"Smile is at it again, upgrading one of their wildly useful tools with even more new and cool features. Jean MacDonald, Philip Goward and Greg Scown join us to talk about PDFpen 5."

May 18, 2010, Macworld
Essential Mac Utilities: text expanders
"The overall win, however (this time at least), goes to TextExpander, because of its support for syncing, creating expansions from selected text, and executing shell scripts in expansions. These features push it slightly ahead of TypeIt4Me, and help justify its higher price tag.", Rob Griffiths

December 10, 2009, Macworld
PDFpen: 2009 Macworld Editors Choice Award
"When it comes to modifying PDFs, Smile’s PDFPen 4.5 fits neatly between OS X’s free Preview and Adobe’s $449 Acrobat Pro. At only $50, it goes well beyond Preview’s PDF processing power, yet it offers some of the same features you’ll find in the much more costly Acrobat Pro. ... PDFPen may not be the most exciting product among this year’s Eddys, but it’s certainly one of the most useful.", Rob Griffiths

January 2009
Macworld 2009: The Mac Observer Editors Choice Award
PDFpen 4
"Editing PDFs can be an intimidating and daunting task without the right tools. Smile's PDFpen 4 fits that bill perfectly thanks to its easy to use features. ...PDFpen 4 can handle almost everyone's PDF editing needs, and it won't hurt your pocketbook, either."
