Merging PDF files is often the first step in any workflow. It allows you to convert multiple, separate documents into one compact PDF that is easy to share, archive, or send out for review. You won’t have to send multiple emails just because you have too many files that are too big to send together. If you use PDF Expert, it only takes a few seconds to combine PDFs so you can quickly and efficiently send all the files that you need to send, in one go. 

Moreover, the app includes an amazing page management toolset to edit, reorder, delete, or rotate pages.
