Version 1.2
Review by Logos_John1:1

Excellent functionallity for FREE - I downloaded this free PDF reader primarily for its additional functionality. I love the fact that I can convert up to 10 pages of a pdf to a word document. Most other converting programs only let you convert 1 or 2 pages for free, but 10 pages gets much more of what I need done. After conversion the formating comes out exactly the same (with minor exceptions when dealing with pdfs that have multiple columns of text per page) as the original pdf. The formatting does make excessive use of line breaks, page breaks, and indented lines, but all of those things just help to make it look like the pdf on each page. A great product! My only complaint is that the page range feature under the conversion tool only seems to work for the first 10 pages, otherwise you have to manually click the arrows to get to the correct page numbers that you want to convert.

Version 2.1.1
Review by StephenPatrick

Great Free App - I’m not a power user by any stretch of the imagination. But I find the editing tools very comprehensive and easy to use. I read some of the other recent reviews where problems were encountered and I share the general opinions around advertisements. However I don’t begrudge the Developers from making an honest living. I will certainly explore the application’s features and make a decisions whether to upgrade or not.

Review by 60791368

Unclear why this free version exists - The free version of this app is just a basic PDF viewer, with a worse UI than Preview – none of the pro features can be tried out in any significant way. So I’m unclear why this exists. It’s Preview, but with ads.

Version 2.1.1
Review by arizonanodeebu

Anything more than basic functionality is costly - Tried this as Preview wouldn’t easily allow me to insert a photo into a pdf. Can’t do this or import anything else without upgrading. Without upgrading I don’t see any functionality that isn’t already in Preview, with a more complicated interface, as well as annoying banner ads (which don’t work but obscure the document. Opening another document created by another program resulted in a jumbled mess of two layers with a loss of formatting- basically a useless document. I thought I could avoid reinstalling Acrobat which I have from a previous laptop (installation involves going through Adobe’s licensing/activation hassles) but I guess not. Deleted app.

Version 2.1.1
Review by Kmbailey

Signatures are very frustrating on the free edition - It lags horribly (and all other applications on my computer work fine.) you can only save one signature and you can’t edit it or even start over again once you save. I can’t even insert a photo of an existing signature. It’s not worth my time. I have an app on my phone that is way better.

Version 2.1.1
Review by Brian Thebau

Really great tool - This is very good and the only fault I can find with it at the time of writing this is that there is no tool for me to rotate pages of pdfs that I open within the app. Other than that, terrific app.
