Pros: This pdf reader has a lot of useful features and even implemented a cloud environment, pdf text editing and tabs among the most practical tools.

Cons: Unfortunately the software seems not to be of the finest quality in the deeper layers, so the pdf gets often distorted after editing. The cloud environment, in my eyes is only half usable, because for a smartphone or tablet a in-browser reading is just not enough.

Overall: Since the end result was not satisfying to me, I didn't really get benifits.
Maybe future upgrades will make it!

Pros: User interface is fantastic. Working speed also. Different options offer solutions for all sort of necessities or problems.

Cons: By my humble opinion, subscription plans are not a model for every software solution. In this case a one-time payment would be something to expect. Slightly heavy on computer resources.

Overall: Documents in PDF are global standard. After experimenting with several solution I found that this one is best solution on the market, for my needs.

Glad to find a PDF print / edit solution that works well and easily without lots of configuration

Pros: Its just works. No need to spend lots of time reading manuals or dealing with settings! Other software that I've used requires a lot of manual configuration or just doesn't work. it is a big upgrade from the free products that normally restrict edits.

Overall: PDF Edit, Print solutions in desktop and web portal form so they are accessible from both desktop and mobile. It was a really great solution for me and my work environment.

FREE functionality is very good!

Pros: I needed software to allow me to protect PDF files to prevent opening by an unintended party. I was able to add just the security module .
It is also a plus that it includes a PDF print device, especially since I am still using Windows 7.

Cons: Actually there are a few things.
1) It does not remember the directory used for new output files.
2) Highlighting is not included with the FREE functionality. It is with Acrobat Reader.
3) The first time output is directed to the PDF printer, the software is very slow to load.

Overall: It gave me the capability to transmit PDF files that are password protected.
Also, it provided a PDF print device.

Comments: This product has all the PDF features you could possibly want and it's very reasonably priced. Aside from the desktop app, you can also log in and use it online. It has great security features (which is a must for me) and it also has an e-signature feature you can buy that lets you prep and send docs to be signed from the app. Would definitely recommend!

Comments: I first purchased Soda to get my sister started on a PDF program, and it was so easy to show her how to use it, I ended up getting Soda as a second PDF program for my own computer. I like having 2 PDF programs so when I am running OCR on a large document I can still be working. I do legal research and our choice of reviewing discovery documents is by PDF. So I deal with literally hundreds of thousands of PDFs. For the price Soda is a great bargain, has all the functionality I need, and you can buy just what you need, you don't have to purchase a fully robust software that you may not need.

Pros: Editing of PDFs

Cons: Sometimes crashes my email

Overall: How frustrating is it when you need to edit a line of txt in a pdf and have to revert back to the original word document etc. Well Soda PDF is great for these tasks. Merging pdf single pages into a single document. This software is now one of my most used on a daily basis, I find it opens pages quicker than any other pdf reader and having the ability to edit make sit as near to perfect as can be for me.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great piece of software, bugs can be fixed.

Comments: Soda PDF Online Services┬┐ pricing model makes it a winning solution for individuals and businesses required to regularly work with PDFs. As the workforce becomes increasingly mobile, web-based solutions are expected to become more popular. Once the app offers the ability to edit PDFs, a feature already scheduled for next releases, it will likely prove invaluable to both business and personal users.

Pros: Pricing model, easy to use

Cons: Some features aren't available yet, though already in development
