Pros

Nitro is a valuable software and which helps to save our documents and also helps to protect environmental too.
This program has saved us a lot of time by allowing us to convert documents to PDF's quickly and easily. One of the features we like best is the ability to create fillable fields and sign documents.
Overal very pleased as I mentioned above, love the features and the stability and seamless integration.

Pros

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.
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.
I have had a very easy and intuitive setup with PDF Reader Pro. It's made completing contracts and sending invoices very easy in my business and I am glad it integrates well with my other systems.

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

The ads that keep popping up on my screen while I use the app is really frustrating. Furthermore, sometimes the app just hooks and becomes so slow.
Many of the features that PDF Reader Pro offers must be purchased separately. Sometimes it is sluggish for larger files.
You have to pay in order to access all these pro features.

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.

My go-to software

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

I've been using Nitro Pro for more than five years now to edit PDFs, and it's been my go-to software for all my PDF needs. It's great for editing, rotating pages, merging documents, making annotations, and highlighting. It's my favorite PDF reader, so far. It's also incredibly useful for reading papers, as you can make notes and highlight sentences. Nitro Pro is feature-rich software that makes it easy to work with PDFs, I highly recommend it.

Cons

The text editing capabilities are not as good as I would like, and when converting PDFs to other formats, the final formatting can be a bit messy.

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.

Nitro PDF for advanced PDF viewing

Reviewed 4 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.

Organized, combined, convert your PDF files with Nitro

Reviewed 2 years ago

I used to work on my pdf files with Adobe Acrobat Reader before however, things changed when I discovered Nitro PDF. It's very easy to use, user-friendly interface and is very suitable for small businesses. 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.

Pros

Nitro PDF is really good in terms of viewing, editing, merging, splitting, converting, reducing file size, deleting unwanted pages, and adding signatures to your PDF documents which means that you don't need to use third-party or external applications. It's very simple, very light with very low storage requirements. I have no experienced hanging while working with Nitro PDF.

Cons

I had some little concern with the conversion of PDF to MS Word files. Sometimes, you will lose the formatting you set up and you have to do the formatting again. But it's not a big deal actually. I still love it.

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.

Nitro and its tools for PDF file manipulation

Reviewed 2 years ago

I used nitro in my first years of university replacing Adobe Acrobat Reader, I liked it very much for the ease of use it has, in addition to the tools it provides, however the greatest strength is in its pro edition that is totally worth investing to have a good software for the manipulation of pdf files.

Pros

Nitro consists of many tools apart from viewing PDF documents, conversion, annotation, editing, merging, splitting, file size reduction, all of which are useful tools that can be used without the need to use an external application.

Cons

Certain compatibility errors made it slow on some devices, like all paid software, in order to access the aforementioned tools you have to subscribe to the service. Therefore, the tools provided in a free plan are reduced but sufficient to work normally.

Pros

It is very easy to use, and is user friendly. As a pdf reader and writer, this is an excellent option if you want to avoid using Adobe products. I am able to manipulate the pages and content of pdf documents with little trouble.

Cons

I made the jump from Adobe to Nitro, and it took some time to get used to. There were some features in Adobe that aren't available in Nitro, but I have been able to get around this. Nitro's user manual is not great. I've had to figure some things out myself.
