Inster Froms
Summary: PDF Editor is the most important feature in a shareware, for the freeware can only simply add plus contents but could not modify and edit the original contents. If you want to edit the PDF file, one PDF Editor shareware is necessary.

Either features or user experience, Adobe Acrobat is the best one. Nitro Pro’s UI is similar to the Office style, it’s easy and fast to handle it. It’s just less feature than Adobe Acrobat.

Foxit Reader
Foxit Reader is one of the best product in PDF freeware. It is mainly focused on the PDF reader, so PDF Creator is just the plus feature. It’s 100% free to use. Actually, if you’re not often use PDF file, the Foxit Reader + smallpdf (free online service) will be sufficient.
ABBYY FineReader
It’s interface is simple and clean, and it’s easy to get start. Its price is inexpensive and during the same price level of products, its features are full completed. It can meet the users who has not professional PDF editing requirements. The only cons is the results of PDF to Word and PDF to PPT conversion are not very good.
Nitro Pro
We tried a variety of price around $100 dollars Comprehensive PDF software, Nitro Pro’s features are not the most completed, but the errors are the most minimal, and the user experience is indeed the best. Its features can meet the most PDF users’ requirements, and it’s stable, no BUGs in our each feature testing. Its conversion feature is similar to Acrobat Pro. It can be said an outstanding product. While from our sales data, this product is ranked No.1, so we recommend it for everyone.
Adobe Acrobat Pro
As the PDF invented company, Adobe Acrobat Pro is the benchmark in PDF software, either quality, user experience, or functionality are all the best. The only cons is its price is a little expensive. If not considered the money, Adobe Acrobat Pro would be first be preferred.


PDF software features and quality is proportional to the price. That is to say more expensive, more features, and better stability.

● If you don’t often use PDF, the freeware + free online service will be enough;
● If you often use PDF in your daily work, we recommend you prefer to the PDF shareware, that price above $90 (excluding discounts). Because the functionality and quality of this type of software will meet the daily demands, while the software at price less than $50 is short of some features or not stable, so not recommended;
● If the company's bulk purchase, we recommend Adobe Acrobat + Nitro Pro (some parts of Acrobat plus some parts of Nitro), so the whole cost will be lower than you only buy Adobe Acrobat Pro, and meanwhile, you can use the Adobe Acrobat Pro unique features.
