PDF FILE READER THAN CAN DO ANYTHING

Reviewed 3 years ago

PDF reader Pro has it all, you can delete other apps with same feature since this software has all the features you need from converting files, sharing, making documents, everything you want in just ONE APP. Ideal software if you have a low storage in your device and also high quality features.

Pros

This app allows me to edit file, annotate documents and made it easier to share files with my workmates and friends. Also, any documents are all likely compatible with this software. And it is easy to understand all application features it have. It has complete advanced features for editing and creating pdf documents, different colors for highlights, pen. Also, it is very manageable app.

Cons

It's a bit pricey for other people who's not usually using PDF reader in their daily lives and also and can't handle large sized document file.

Pro in every sense

Reviewed 3 years ago

Its the best pdf reader anyone can ask for, very easy to sign documents, very easy to edit documents. I would say to use it for sure and its cheap too.

Pros

What not like from editing the PDF to making different versions of the document. I work with lot of research papers and this reader pro helps me in getting the information from any document. We can create a word out of PDF, convert any word to PDF. Search without any difficulty through whole document. Able to sign the document is mind blowing. We can secure the document by adding protection like password or pin making it secure. Best part is the format does not change in any software, any UI, any platform.

Cons

the scanning is very inconsistent with the clarity. the pictures in the light comes out really good but the scanning with flash on is not at its best. there are great apps for that.

great software powerful functions

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Pdf reader pro can provide a more comfortable reading background, making it easier to take notes and take screenshots. As a Ph.D. student, you need to read literature every day, which is an important functional improvement (compared to pdf). This software could provide the built-in powerful format conversion module, almost all formats you know can convert your PDF documents, such as word, excel, ppt, rtf, csv, html, txt, just Even pictures can be converted to jpeg/jpg/png/gif/tiff/tga/bmp and other formats. In addition, it is also very convenient to directly sign contracts or forms.

Cons

Pdf pro is more expensive than pdf, but not too much

my go to pdf viewer

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall I use the programme daily and I am happy about what is allows me to do. My favourite part is that is can convert pdf documents to excel and word. That for me is a life changing tool that saves me a ton of time.

Pros

it is easy to use. you only need little time to master the software and use it for your needs. During meetings, it is easy to use the program to add comments, highlight part of text and write notes. You can also move items around if you need to.

Cons

The pricing is okay, in our case covered by the company. It I had to pay out of pocket I would maybe consider is a little pricey. When you want to convert a document to excel and it is a a mixture of text and tables, sometimes the results is not as as good as you expect and quite some time is needed for formatting.

Vendor response

Do all your PDF documents have similar problems? Please send us your PDF file, we will ask engineers to perform technical tests. What is your device type and OS version? It would be more helpful if you could provide a demo screenshot or video of the error message, we need more information

My overall experience is very excellent with this powerful and useful software as i am using PDF Reader Pro almost everyday from last many years. I always prefer to save my documents in PDF format and use it later via PDF Reader Pro.

Pros

PDF Reader Pro provides exciting services to its users free of cost but when you get there paid version you can access all its useful tools and features. The software can be easily downloaded from internet and supports multiple OS. You can covert your documents in different formats like JPEG, Word and excel and also edit them as per your requirement. By the help of PDF Reader Pro you can easily manage large documents having huge number of pages, combine documents, remove text and also sign pages. In short i strongly recommend use of this incredible software.

Cons

PDF Reader Pro has all the necessary tools and features and i have not found any cons in this incredible software.

I did not face any problems with PDF Reader Pro while working with documents.

Best alternative to the most expensive Adobe Acrobat

Light software making it load faster on all devices. It's easy to use and no running curve I's affordable and works on multiple operating systems. For less than $60, you can get annotation, editing and PDF covering tool.

Not as robust as the Adobe Acrobat. The application available on MacOS app store sometimes crushes on Monterey MacOS

Most cost-efficient alternative to the expensive competition.

Reviewed 5 years ago

I use PDF Reader Pro for graduate school work and for writing my thesis. The native Mac OS option for PDF reading/editing is limited at best. PDF Reader Pro allowed me to become very efficient due to its great search functionality, editing capability, and fast performance. In my opinion, it outperforms Adobe products.

Pros

Low price for the functionality offered. Butter-smooth scrolling and great performance. Packed with features. Advance search funcionality.

Cons

I don't like the "home" tab loads every time I start the program.

This looks too familiar

Reviewed 5 years ago

The first time I met PDF Editor Pro the person who owned the computer was sure he had purchased Adobe's Acrobat Pro. PDF Editor Pro handled the PDF problem we had just fine, but I can definitely see why he thought it was a different piece of software.

Pros

PDF Reader Pro is actually a decent PDF editor. It does what you expect of a PDF editor. It does decent OCR and can edit and merge pages easily.

Cons

I know of a similar product with a similar logo and a similar name. This is not cool! PDF Reader Pro is actually strong enough not to seem like a ripoff of another program. The monthly cost of the two are similar as well.

Vendor response

My experience with PDF Reader Pro has been neutral. I might want to try out more software or apps regarding this but currently, I am not yet satisfied with its services

Pros

I enjoy the fact that there is existing software with features available for free price. It lets me try out its features prior to paying for its services

Cons

I do not enjoy the ads that constantly pop up. I find it annoying to close an ad then another ad appears on mobile.
