Pros

What i like with Nitro is it is so easy to use with super friendly tools that even a beginner can use this app.
Meanwhile, Pro Edition has a lot to offer especially for big businesses which totally worth the investment. I really love using it, and I would continue to use it and recommend it to my friends.
Nitro is a valuable software and which helps to save our documents and also helps to protect environmental too.

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

What i dislike from this software is about the update. There is no regular updates.
OCR scanning comes with errors, extracting text from a file will have small errors.
Customer Service is horrible. I have had to re-activate my license at least three or four times in the one year that I have been using the product.

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.

Nitro PDF for advanced PDF viewing

Reviewed 5 years ago

I am really satisfied with the functions that Nitro extends. However, the edit option is available in its paid full version. Yet, I prefer it over Adobe PDF reader or Foxit reader.

Pros

The most interesting part of the software is the 'Edit' PDF option which is pretty much not available in any other competitive software. Extracting and combining PDF files from PDFs or other file formats like JPG is another advantage.

Cons

The software is pretty heavy for the processor if there are many PDF files open. Hence, this could be a hardware limited option at times. Yet, the pros are much more worth it over this issue.

Such a bad reader but with excellent conversion tools

Reviewed 6 years ago

Nitro is such an amazing pdf converter, but such a bad pdf reader. I don't recommend you use this as your standalone pdf software but for you to complement it with a good pdf reader and you will have a really satisfactory experience.

Pros

Nitro is an excellent software for PDF conversion both for pdf converted documents and for scanned ones with its OCR tool. I constantly use it for converting my documents to word and excel format whenever I need to.

Cons

Something that really messes up my conversions is if the document is watermarked, I would love if they could work on this issue. Also as a reader it works too slow for me, my computer lags a lot and even transitioning from a page to the other is a painful experience.

THE best reader for PDF

Excellent. I stopped using the PDF Reader and I only use Nitro ... super recommended!

Pros

It is easy, practical and very versatile. It has taken me out of trouble when the word documents have already been converted to PDF.

Cons

Sometimes it hangs ... I don't know if it's the version but it's not that serious. What I would like is for one to choose in which language one wants to use it.

A Powerful PDF Editor

Reviewed 2 years ago

We use it on daily basis as a PDF reader for our work. It helps us in making the scanned PDF as editable with OCR.

Pros

It has many features which other tools doesn't have. Some Pros which I like are- 1. We can edit the PDF just like in MS Word and it keeps the same font and style. 2. Merging, extracting, deleting a page (s), inserting are some of the powerful features of Nitro. 3. Can convert image, doc, ppt to PDF and vice-versa with Nitro.

Cons

There are none except it is a little bit costly.

Great PDF reader

Reviewed 5 years ago

I use Nitro PDF to create student reports on our English club. Nitro PDF allows me to do lots of things with only a small fee - compared to other readers.

Pros

Nitro PDF allows user to read and modify pdf documents. It has functions similar to other pdf reader programs but with very affordable price. This makes Nitro PDF a very desirable application for small industries.

Cons

Nitro PDF uses fairly light memory but it adds with each pdf files I open to the point that it might freeze if I open several pdf files at once.

Easy to use and powerful

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Edits .pdf documents with ease. Excellent OCR capabilities. Lighter on resources than the competition (such as Adobe or Foxit). Can modify the text of a PDF after rendering OCR, which is both impressive and adds a competitive edge.

Cons

It's not perfect when it comes to editing a PDF, but few PDF editors are. The biggest con is that replacing text in an existing PDF file can be somewhat frustrating, as it tends to drop words and characters down to the next line rather than typing across a straight line.

Nitro is a very good tool for create and edit PDF

Reviewed a year ago

Excellent! Nitro is a so powerful and so versatile PDF editor and reader with many useful tools and features

Pros

Nitro is easy to use and has extensive tools and functionalities for PDF editing and management with a wide range of tools for editing, merging, splitting, or converting PDFs, Nitro can be a digital notebook since it also has tools such as highlighting, striking through, adding comments, adding forms, adding images, signatures, and stamps, etc. Also has cloud integration and you can collaborate with other people (with access) in the documents.

Cons

Sometimes (although it also depends on the computer's computing power) Nitro tends to lag or close on its own, losing the work that has been done. Also, the interface can be a bit confusing, causing some utilities to be in unexpected menus.

Excellent for editing PDFs

I really recommend Nitro, it is such a complete PDF software, it works wonders both as a reader and an editing software.

Pros

Nitro is an excellent PDF reader, but where it really shines is in it's editing tools, I have used it to flip pages when they get messy or mostly to transform sections of a document either to word or excel which saves a lot of time when reusing a information that is on your PDF

Cons

Sometimes it's word conversion can get really messy if it has a signature or if there is some type of stamp in the document.

Overall was good to deploy out to clients, learning curve for normal users was a a bit tough

Pros

That's its a free product with same functionality as Adobe reader pro.

Cons

Tough learning curve. But once learned it was okay dealing with.

Foxit PDF Reader

Only because Acrobat Pro is very expensive

Reviewed 5 years ago

Really is not the same in speed and functionality as Adobe Acrobat Pro, but as it's no longer available as a puchase-one standalone, I would recommend you keep a key and installation for Adobe Pro X as a backup instead .

Pros

Foxit has nearly all of the features and settings that one could want to interact with PDFs, besides very advanced pre-flight and printer settings.

Cons

Can be confusing at times as the menus are not in the same place, have not found a way of importing comments and markups easily between PDFs.

Great product! I have used Foxit for years!

Reviewed 6 years ago

A fast, free way to view PDF files.

Pros

Speed. The program is much faster than Adobe Acrobat CC (my current reader), and offers a one time Pro purchase (if you don't like the free version).

Cons

The sneaky extras during install if you don't choose custom. While legal, it is shady at best and unfair to the consumer. Most average people won't check for the option to decline or check the Custom box to begin with. You guys need to give that a break.

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.

Other Choice for Adobe Pro with same features and excellent costing

Reviewed a year ago

I'm getting my work done with the ease of use and not many problems. Has all the tools that I need day to day.

Pros

It has all the features of Adobe Pro and gets the work done efficiently. There are a few options that I use regularly that are helpful like editing, organizing pages, etc.

Cons

There are not a lot but the signature option can be enhanced to be comparable to other software and over all it's not bad.

Foxit PDF Reader

One of the best pdf readers in the market!

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

For 10 years you have the option of pointing text and currently has functions in the cloud, where if you do not have a full editor you can change from PDF to WORD, PDF to EXCEL, PDF to JPG, among others and it's free. It is one of the readers that remains an alternative to the creators of the format, although there are already other competitors such as Nitro, it is still the favorite for those seeking simplicity, speed of reading and stability (some readers delay in opening a file, but with foxit it's very fast). Recommended its use widely!

Cons

Maybe for PDF purists, do not like the tape mode of your menu (although it is not new) it is very simple to manage. In addition to its way of opening documents that do it in "tab" mode as a browser (it is possible to change the reading mode as adobe) for those who come from other PDF readers can open their documents in individual windows, that for some users It can be something that costs them to adapt. Nothing significant to comment on the rest.

A good ,free pdf document option

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

The biggest pro is the simplicity of Foxit Reader . It is very easy to use and no prior training is required. Everything is intuitive and any aspect of handling a pdf file can be done through it .

Cons

The upsell attempts within the program can be annoying but I understand the company has to make revenue . Converting files to Microsoft Office formats leaves a lot to be desired .

Very good alternative to adobe acrobat reader

Reviewed 4 years ago

Foxit reader has been a great light weight alternative to adobe reader, as it can handle multiple pdfs without using up so much memory.

Pros

Opening multiple tabs within a single instance of application is great. Also the typewriter feature to write on pdf files is really useful.

Cons

Wish there were more features in the free version compared to the pro version. For example, merging pdfs is available online on foxit website for free, but the same is not available in the stand alone version.

Foxit PDF Reader

A light viewer for PDF documents

Reviewed 3 years ago

One of the biggest benefits I have gained from using this software is its lightness, as it can be installed on almost any inexpensive hardware like an average office computer. It consumes few resources and maintains the speed of the graphical interface. All document review is sped up.

Pros

Comparing against another PDF software, I like its lightness and speed to start and visualize documents. Also, there is a one-time paid price for PRO version which helps to economize, unlike subscriptions where you must pay month-a-month.

Cons

I found difficult protecting documents with certificates and Adobe Experience Manager. If one of our customers or clients use Adobe solutions, the protection using these advanced mechansims may be not fully compatible with Foxit, and we need to downgrade to legacy and less secure protection like passwords or external encryption software.

Foxit PDF Reader

Better than Adobe

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, I have been a fan of Foxit over Adobe since I first tried it. We did a trial run with our office recently and it had overall good reviews, so my office has since made the switch from Adobe Pro to Foxit "Phantom" for the entire office!

Pros

Foxit's performance matches Adobe, at a better price. It does everything that Adobe does and has a more relaxed feeling color scheme, background.

Cons

That you need to use the pay version to edit a PDF, but i have not yet found a platform that will let you edit PDF's on the free version.
