Nodhead Software has announced PDF Hero 1.0.1, an update to their utility product for Mac OS X. It requires Mac OS X 10.6.6 or higher, costs US$4.99 and can be found in the Mac App Store in the Productivity category.

With a drag and drop interface, PDF Hero is tailored to provide a way to combine PDF files and/or mix them with images. Version 1.0.1 adds the capability to connect with Tethering Hero for the iPhone and iPod touch. Tethered shooting allows the user to utilize the camera of an iOS device to shoot and transfer pictures and photos of documents directly into PDF Hero.

During operation a realistic page view allows the user to preview his or her document and flick through pages in a natural way, according to the folks at Nodhead Software. This can be done using the onscreen controls, keyboard or multitouch swipe gestures. A 14-day, fully functional demo version of PDF Hero is available at the Nodhead Software web site (
