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

What I like most about PDFfiller is how easy it is for myself and clients to sign documents. This is one of the best tools I have found to edit.
What I like most with the PDF filler is the ability to secure and password protect a very important document.
GREAT structure platform, user friendly have cool tools and variety of options and the great part is online.

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 user can modify his document and only when downloading it he is asked to register with a payment method. This can be confusing and irritating if you don't know it beforehand.
That in itself is a HUGE risk which users should not allow except in the most dire of circumstances.
My customers had some problems with the software while filling out forms on my website.

A no-nonsense PDF editor that does what it promises

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

PDFfiller is a straight-forward, easy to use PDF editing solution, and the greatest pro is the online drag and drop interface!

Cons

It obviously lacks the features of Bluebeam and Adobe, however if you know that going in, you won't be disappointed as it does exactly what most people need.

A great tool for editing PDF with competitive pricing compared to other products in the market.

Reviewed a year ago

Been using it for quite some time and I'm happy with the tools/features. For the amount of editing/pdf creation I do, this tool gets it done.

Pros

I mainly use it for editing and signature functions. The features are similar to Adobe Pro and pricing is competitive. I like the user-friendly features and navigation.

Cons

The signature feature can be enhanced like the options available in other Document signing software. It gets the job done but would like improvements to signing features.

An easy and effective tool for PDF files in daily office work.

Reviewed 6 years ago

It’s an amazing alternative of Adobe’s pro version and I don’t need any file to install on my system. I can do my work through this application on my web browser itself.

Pros

It is very easy to use. It helps to add notes to your PDF files easily. It also has the feature of importing files from a URL. After editing your pdf file you can directly send it to your email id.

Cons

Its inefficiency of uploading multiple files in one operation. Sometimes it become slow when uploading slightly large file irrespective of internet speed.

Just a Little Bit More

Reviewed 9 months ago

It has made editing documents sent via .pdf a lot easier to change. I think it's a great option if you don't need the many features that Adobe offers in its Reader Pro app.

Pros

I like that it's accessible online from anywhere in the world. It's not a cumbersome program and it's easy for people who may not be as tech-savvy or intimidated by Adobe products to use.

Cons

Some of the visual styling things seemed to be a bit dated when compared to Adobe, but otherwise, I have no complaints.

Best tool with advanced features - PDF Filler

Reviewed 5 years ago

Add, edit, share & highlight option in one application. Easy to use and must have application if you publish documents frequently.

Pros

If you work on PDF files daily it is a must have application. It handles PDF files and let you edit and add content very easily. - Easy to use tools - Add text, edit text, highlight, notes etc. many features in one application - No watermarks which makes it easy to edit and share.

Cons

It is working good till now and not found any such cons in the application. Conversion of files do takes times and using advance features needs a pro in that. It gets slower with big files.

Best In pdf

Reviewed 2 years ago

LOVE it!

Pros

Everything thing in this app is easily navigated, you are able to save documents to revise later. A big pro for me is when you send a PDF, say as soon as you hit send, you are like "oh my goodness I forget a important part" You can go into that sent email and revise or add on. As long as the recipient has not opened it yet.

Cons

Im not fond of the code to open the PDF you have sent, expires for them. I'm still rather new to this so I plan on leaving another review once I figure out ALL the kinks of the app

I'm computer illiterate and even I could easily use this

Reviewed 7 years ago

It saved me time and money, thank you :)

Pros

Easy to use and easy to understand format, it made me feel like a pro lol, and I love the feature of being able to download your copies to your computer in either a PDF or a Word file, personally I dislike PDF files but if you have to send or receive them this is the perfect tool to do it with. Have already recommended it to several friends and family.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall pretty negative. As a free service, I would recommend for little projects. I do not think it is worth paying for, as the features are not up to scuff.

Pros

I liked that it had a free trial and it was accessible online.

Cons

It wasn't what I was expecting. I was hoping I could edit an existing pdf as I didn't have Adobe Pro on my current computer. I used this as it was free and I figured if I really liked it I would keep using it. The editing was jerky and unhelpful and I ended up using a different website to convert my pdf to word to make the process easier. Also (and this is my fault) I forgot to cancel my subscription, so they charged me the full yearly rate of $96. I recognize I should have cancelled, but the reason I was so lax was because I assumed they would default to a monthly payment. I recognize I should have read more thoroughly when I signed up for the free trial, but it was still very frustrating.
