Pros

I love the convenience and ease of using this app. I generate recipes and training sheets for my clients and this is one of the best ways to free up storage space on your pc.
This is a wonderful app for all PDF related requirements. I am completely happy with it.
Overall, it is a good program, that I total recommend, easy to use and good features.

Pros

Easy to use, inexpensive. Great ability to extract data from PDF to Excel - better than Adobe and other products.
I've used a lot of PDF conversion / editing tools over the years and Able2Extract is by far the best one. It's very easy to use and understand and their customer service is great.
Beautiful column separation, ability to save extraction templates.

Cons

Maybe I missed it but I couldn't upload my fonts which made it difficult when my invoice uses a particular one.
I am often stuck with editing PDF files, this is my first and only pit stop for the task.
It almost has too much to offer. You really have to pay attention to the program.

Cons

Getting stuck and coming fatal error reports. Data not capturing when there are images frequently.
Sometimes the software guesses wrong about words so that review is required and sometimes formatting is off.
In 12, one has more of an ability to apply the same table structure to non-consecutive pages, but it has a bug and does not work well. My worker actually went back to using 11, she says 12 is bad.

Tons of tools, but still doesn't feel professional

Reviewed 2 years ago

Good, but switched to a different software that felt more professional once I had a larger budget

Pros

All of the different tools in one place are great - like merging, splitting, etc. PDFs

Cons

It just feels less professional than other esign platforms - one of my investors had a hard time accessing it and saw an error message

SmallPDF : My professional companion

Reviewed 4 years ago

I'm converting my professional files to other formats to use it conveniently.

Pros

It is very easy and simple to use. You can convert a file to any format within seconds without any difficulty.

Cons

I'm sometimes hesitant to use it because of my privacy concerns, I think they should make it clear that they store our data while converting or not.

Smallpdf, big results.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Great. I could not be more happy. I hope they release an app of this software.

Pros

Everything. I have been an Adobe user for most of my professional career but Smallpdf is about to change that. This small yet powerful tool packs a lot of punch.

Cons

I am not totally comfortable using this web based software. I have a lot of confidential documents that require delicate handling and uploading them to the web isn't really a good option.

Smallpdf: your documents have never been easier

Reviewed a year ago

As a professional in the field, where every day I deal with documents and especially with all these formats (pdf, jpg, png, pptx) knowing all its features is really a trump card and a crazy time saver, especially because the interface is really well done and the download is fast.

Pros

Its biggest plus is undoubtedly the amount of functionality it can offer: it can compress, convert from different formats (pdf, jpg, pptx, in short really many formats), it can merge, split or export single pages. All these functions are just a click away, with a simple and fresh interface.

Cons

When your files are too heavy it becomes chargeable. The price is not expensive, however usually when you use it you need to get things done quickly and finding the banner for payment is not the best.
