Pros

Super easy editing functions and simple design structure makes it one of a kind. Having the app made it super easy to scan stuff in and convert it to a PDF for work.
It has great editing features and the printing quality features are superb. It also has an option to save as pdf file if you are printing any word/browser files into pdf.
It loads fast and let's me print and save with ease. Very important tool for my buiensess to help me view invoices and contracts.

Pros

I use it every day in my work and it is wonderful. You can put stamps, signatures, change the color of the highlighter among other super cool things.
But what I like the most is that I can highlight on the file, so I don't have to print the document but still be able to note what I want to. And I do love the electronic signature as well.
Foxit is still supports windows 07 which is beneficial to older version users. Highlighting and commenting is easy and I like it very much the way they offer to highlight.

Cons

Doesn’t always function if I’m not the administrator and I can hardly understand the verbiage or wording of it. It’s annoying to use and hate using software that require Abode.
Another problem we have is when the product files get corrupted (and we don't know why).
Many features are not available without upgrading to more expensive versions - my biggest complaint is the lack of editing available in this version.

Cons

I have had trouble trying to open PDFs with Foxit Reader after I use the Foxit Reader printer to create the PDF. I have not been able to find the problem causing this.
There is a lack of counting the number of pages, at least in the mobile version, difficulties to synchronize with the cloud sporadically.
While I was using windows 7, after some heavy use, sometimes it crashes. It's a bit annoying for me sometimes I get some ads when I am working.

Acrobat Reader DC REVIEW

Reviewed 5 years ago

As a post graduate student in engineer, I usually use adobe reader for reading e books, PDF texts, Note books etc. The main reason behind my love towards adobe is due to i can easily highlight important text like a physical note book. I can easily make commands. so i always use adobe for reading.

Pros

It is very easy & fast to open pdf files in Acrobat Reader DC compared to other reader softwares like Foxit reader & Nitro pdf reader. It is very easy to Highlighting text, Adding sticky notes and saving changes very fastly. Full features are available by making payment.

Cons

Creating pdf from files are not available for free version/demo, but when you compare to that of foxit reader they are providing this features for free (without payment). So for promoting Acrobat Reader DC it should include this feature for free. Some of my friends are not using Adobe reader because they are unable to save documents as pdf in free version, so i hope you will update this thing.

Adobe Acrobat Reader

A functional PDF Viewer with Some Interesting Features

Reviewed 5 years ago

If all you're looking for is a PDF reader to open and view documents, then there are better options out there.

Pros

Acrobat Reader DC is a free PDF reader provided by Adobe used to view and sign PDF documents. As PDF was developed by Adobe itself, it is natural that Acrobat Reader handles PDF files very well; one way this shows is its compatibility with all PDF documents, rarely if ever failing to open or display a PDF. Acrobat Reader also has another benefit, especially compared to other free readers in that it can open other files such as Adobe Illustrator .ai files for viewing, a feature lacking in other 3rd party programs. These additional features propel Acrobat over similar free readers.

Cons

Acrobat Reader is comparatively bloated versus other PDF readers such as Foxit Reader and very slow compared to basic PDF readers such as SumatraPDF. There is also a potential security vulnerability where Acrobat Reader will also automatically execute JSS code. Acrobat Reader may be confused with the standard, paid Acrobat DC, which is a program that contains many extra features for editing, annotating, opening, and saving PDF files.

Sweet & Sour, definitely. We have since switched to Foxit Reader.

Pros

I found Acrobat Reader DC to function quite well on its own ... smooth, simple, clean -- a good individual product.

Cons

Acrobat products generally seem to not get along with other products & systems. I have routinely had problems with them performing in a network arena, interacting with internet browsers, & creating issues with various websites' video players & cookies (as best as I could tell). I don't understand why, but it regularly centers around an Acrobat product.

For me it is very beneficial to have my documents in the cloud and thus be able to access the same PDF document from your mobile, tablet, PC, MAC, iPad, etc. since it has become more functional

Pros

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for me is the most complete reader, the new version is excellent, much more modern and intuitive, and the best thing is that it includes synchronization in the cloud to work with different devices from any place where you have access to the internet.

Cons

it is a bit heavy, other programs like Foxit Reader has similar functions with less weight, they should make an improvement in this aspect, especially thinking about people who own equipment with limited resources, or people who only need a pdf reader.

Acrobat Reader DC is not worth the price

Reviewed 6 years ago

Buyers are better off getting other applications that have built in Pdf reader and converters that would be more value for money than purchasing Acrobat Reader DC.

Pros

Acrobat Reader DC comes with all the tools to edit, convert, sign, export to word/excel and read pdf documents. It comes with a free version that just allows you to sign documents and read PDF files.

Cons

For the time where there are many PDF file readers and alternatives that come attached to other software such as: Microsoft Word, Morzila Firefox, Foxit Reader and many more, the Acrobat reader is severely limited in functionality. It doesn't give enough value for money.

Acrobat reader is widely used because they are the first company that widely used PDF, and the company that stays this long on the market with so many users is definitely a company with trust from their users. We have this software implemented on most of our personal computers, tablets and smart phones. In the long term we do not think that we will change our PDF reader software for anything else - except we find some other software with better editing possibilities.

Cons

Because of the limited editing functions in basic Acrobat reader, we were using during one period a Foxit Advanced reader because of the editing functions...

Good software. Works well like Adobe Acrobat and Reader. Works well and opens documents like Adobe would. Affordable software depending on what is needed

Cons

If you are used to Adobe and needing to switch to a different software, it will take time to get used to the functions. Similar, but still different.

Foxit PDF Reader

Très bon logiciel de lecture des PDF, simple et léger

Reviewed a year ago

Dans l'ensemble, c'est un logiciel au premier contact, très léger, simple et intuitif ; Foxit reader à fait l'effort de revoir l'interface graphique de son logiciel pour proposer quelque chose d'attrayant et de convivial.

Pros

Foxit est léger, simple, intuitif, et il s'intègre facilement à d'autres applications compatibles

Cons

La version gratuite de Foxit reader est quand trop limiter dans les fonctions par rapport à Adobe Acrobat reader qui propose plus d'outils pour la même version gratuite.

PDF reading made easy

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

I am using the free version of Foxit reader since a long time. I use it for reading PDF documents and books. It also bundled with PDF Printer which helps me in converting my other documents into PDF format. Easy to use. Very nice and clean user interface.

Cons

As it is not most commonly used PDF reader so few functionalities are not available that is provided by top tier products like Adobe Acrobat Reader or Pro.

Foxit PDF Reader

the best and the smoothest PDF editing software

Reviewed 6 months ago

I have been using Foxit PDF Reader for one year, and switched from Adobe Acrobat, Foxit PDF Reader is cheaper and smoother while editing PDF files.

Pros

Foxit PDF Reader is the best software for managing your PDF files, it has all the features and abilities that help you to edit and manage your DF files smoothly, as it does not consume much from your memory resources. It is the best!

Cons

Foxit PDF Reader is the best and there is nothing to dislike about it.

TIRED OF THE ESCALATING COST, CONSTANT UPDATES, BOTHERSOME BELLS AND WHISTLES OF ADOBE ACROBAT????

Reviewed 4 years ago

Best replacement for Adobe Acrobat you can find!!!!

Pros

If so, you may be a candidate for Foxit Reader! YES, THERE IS A FREE VERSION!! [OR A PAY VERSION IF YOU JUST LUV ALL THOSE BELLS AND WHISTLES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU EVER USE THEM OR NOT - AND THE PAY VERSION IS INEXPENSIVE COMPARED TO ADOBE ACROBAT!!!] BTW, it does not have to be updated with a steep learning curve every time you turn around as does Adobe Acrobat, either!!!!

Cons

Features missing - are you kidding me???? - Foxit Reader has everything you could want or need that Adobe Acrobat provides, just not inscrutable!!

Fox it Reader is fairly easy to install and while not as robust as Adobe Acrobat it's better for the cost.

Pros

Foxit Reader is a good PDF Alternative. I found it easy to install and it integrates in Windows and your internet browser with ease.

Cons

It flags me every time I open certain documents with security options that oddly I don't think are actually set in the document.

Great Software, but...

Reviewed 3 years ago

Loved it while trial lasted, but again it’s too pricey!!

Pros

Foxit is a great PDF reader/editor software. Didn’t feel like purchasing (there are free ones that do less), but if I were to purchase one software, it would most likely be this one.

Cons

Price sucks! C’mon, who wants to pay for a PDF reader when you can get ALL of Adobe (PhotoShop, Acrobat PDF Reader/Editor, and more) all in one company? I wouldn’t even pay for those...

Foxit PDF Reader is OK

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's okay. Still trying to fall in love with it!

Pros

It tries to do what ADOBE Acrobat Reader does...so I like that. I NEED that! The commenting and editing functions especially. It's an okay product.

Cons

It's just not 100% user-friendly. Maybe it's because Adobe is so intuitive that I'm having trouble adapting to FOXitPDF.
