Pros: For the absurd cost I can't see why anyone would use Acrobat over Nitro PDF. Nitro PDF costs well less than half of what an Acrobat Pro license costs, and there is no super amazing functionality Acrobat has that Nitro doesn't that would justify spending your money with Adobe. Nitro is more than sufficient, and even their free PDF reader has more functionality than Adobe's to boot.

Additionally, at least from a corporate perspective, every time I ever contact Nitro for something like a licensing quote, a question, or even for technical support (essentially never needed) they were always ultra responsive and professional. I think about an hour or so is the longest they have ever taken to get back to me and I've been doing business with them for five years at this point.

Cons: The only con is a fairly minor one, is a bit of a technical issue, and the only reason I gave overall quality four stars. Sometimes when closing a PDF the Nitro process will get hung. The next time you attempt to open a PDF, nothing will happen.

You won't get an error or anything, but you'll double click the file and simply (seemingly) nothing happens. Well, in actuality another instance of the Nitro process launches, but the user visually sees nothing. If you run into this and go look at running processes you'll see an instance of the Nitro process running for every time you tried to open a PDF after it got hung up. The fix is to either manually kill all the processes or just have the user log out and log back in (which does the same thing). No need to restart the machine or anything, just need to kill those processes one way or another.

Having said that, I will tell you that I have run Nitro in my environment for more than 100 users for the last five+ years and would see someone have this problem maybe once a month. If you do the math on the number of PDFs being opened and worked on every day you would end up with an error rate of something absurd like .00001. Only an IT administrator or helpdesk tech would ever even be aware of such an issue and a home user will likely never run into this. It's also possible that they've corrected this is the most current version, I'm still using 9 Pro (had this issue in v8 also, current is v11 Pro).

Overall: Not paying Adobe their absurd licensing costs.

Pros: Of the things that I like most about Nitro, is that I can do multiple actions with the digital documents that come to me, or with those I believe. I can edit any content and offer it under the protection standards that I decide to put on it. Apart from the Nitro format, it adapts easily to any other system, another element that makes me feel when I use it. Another factor that has offered me that very few in the market can match, is the digital signature, thanks to that I have been able to transmit files with the support of my signature without being physically anywhere else, be it national or international, a very functional innovation. In addition, you can count on the support of the company in other areas such as the cloud, now imagine that so many other things you can do, I am very happy with everything that Nitro offers me.

Cons: I have been using their services for several years and I am pleasantly satisfied, I have not had problems since I decided to invest in their platform, but I think that it can improve the price offer for new and old customers, it is not a factor that determines my use or not, in my case does not apply, but for entrepreneurs who do not have the right time, it may be different.

Overall: In the world of digital work, PDF documents come and go, in many opportunities, I receive information necessary to complete presentations but being in that format is difficult, that was before using Nitro, now I have the possibility of editing all the files that come to me in PDF format, as well as being able to create my own PDF files without limitations. The other benefit is the savings in my finances, applications or similar tools you get at higher prices than those offered by Nitro, so I highly recommend its implementation if you work in catalogs, reports, budgets, digital books, your memories, among others, Nitro's capabilities are lost sight of.

Pros: I am an HR professional and have been using this software for almost 4 years now. This is one of the best PDF editor software in the market.

As an HR professional, I work with documents all day and we need to edit documents every time as per the employee/client's specifications. Nitro PDF makes it easier for me to edit the document. It also provides features like electronic signing, adding comments, erase the unwanted sentences, highlighting and many other interesting features.

You can change the font of the text and make it compatible as per the rest of the document. It also allows you to stamp, watermark and add images to the document. It even provides a feature to combine and extract pages from a file.

It is user-friendly application and works well on Windows and has an in-built spell check feature.

Cons: There are times when the software stops working in the middle of work and the only option left is to close the file and start over. This is very annoying and disrupt the work. Not sure how true this is but it does not work well with IOS.

Overall: I have had a good experience with Nitro so far and since I use this software on daily basis, I can vouch that it is the best on the market right now for small to medium scale companies.

Pros: Nitro explains thas issue, it's converter is the best it is hands on its best element. Where it truly sparkles is while changing over PDFs, how often do we have a pdf and we require some piece of the report or an exceed expectations table and it's a bad dream to reorder them in view of configurations. This is a decent PDF peruser it will take care of business.

Nitro has an element where you can change over it into Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Power Point and furthermore to Image jpeg. I cherish this program since it has pleasant highlights which can enable you to alter, Read/View, and furthermore you dont need to hustle changing over any record. The most I cherish about nitro is that I can complete an advanced mark and I can alter the pdf the manner in which I need.

Cons: I don't have anything to say about it's cons but in the future they can apparatuses can be enhanced for the openness everything being equal, frequently restricting the instruments to utilize somewhat more promoting and installment strategies available to all nations in their local money.

Overall: This made my life easier, and would definitely recommend this to my friends and Co- workers.

Pros: This is a good PDF reader it will get the job done. Where it really shines is when converting PDFs, how many times do we have a pdf and we need some part of the document or an excel table and it's a nightmare to copy and paste them because of formats? Nitro solves thas issue, it's converter is the best it is hands on its best feature.

Cons: It can be really slow when reading pdfs and sometimes it feels a little bit clunky. When printing PDFs it can be a nightmare since we have to reconfigure several times the page configuration which in other readers is already automatically arrenged.

Overall: Overall it is an excellent tool to have, it can be a slow pdf reader but it gets the job done, but it's conversion tool is where it shines and saves a lot of time, which as they say is money.

Pros: I am counting on NitroPDF all the time. It is a great tool that I use for most of my documents and I like that it is very easy to use. One of the most important functions that I use is combining my documents in to one PDF file and NitroPDF does this job in a great and fast way. Also file conversion is another great, I can convert almost all my documents format to any file extension I need. Lastly, the price of the NitroPDF Pro is very reliable and considered to be cheap compared to other softwares/

Cons: I wish if NitroPDf was available for my iPhone and iPad. Other than that it is one of my favorite PDF tools

Overall: I use NitroPDF for all my lecture notes. It really helped me to save time while combining all my documents together

Pros: I love this program because it has nice features which can allow you to edit, Read/View, and also you dont need to hustle converting any document. Nitro has a feature where you can convert it into Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Power Point and also to Image jpeg.

The most i love about nitro is that i can do a digital signature and i can edit the pdf the way i want.

Cons: The Programs needs you to have a license so that you can enjoy all the features freely.

Overall: I used to hustle trying to convert some PDF to word or any other different format. it was so stressful since i had to use an online converter of which it's not efficient as it consumes a lot of time converting online.

Now am able to convert it without a hustle.

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.

Overall: 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 Pro 8 is less intrusive, less expensive, and is faster than all other PDF programs I have tried and discarded. I use it in my business, creating a PDF of each invoice that I send to my clients. Nitro kept their product lean and efficient, and has never intruded into the process of doing its job.

Cons: I can't actually think of anything I don't like.

Overall: I run a tight and frugal business model. Adobe products kept getting more expensive and sort of bloated, with ever-present updates and warnings about malware and all of those issues that have become common with popular software. I found Nitro Pro 8 to be absolutely the perfect alternative. I have NEVER had an issue with it.

Pros: Nitro is a beautiful document collaboration tool ,allowing colleagues to drop markups and notes on forms and documents ,so the next person accessing the form encounters little difficulty understanding the form or documents.

I also like how I am able to convert Microsoft word documents into pdf and vice versa ,using Nitro.In summary Nitro has reduced to the barest minimum,the use of paper in my organization and has so far served as a dependable digital workflow for our daily activity.

Cons: I encounter difficulties opening pdf documents, created with the newer Adobe formatting styles on Nitro.

Pros: The thing that I like the most about Nitro Pro is the price! We have Adobe Creative Suites on the majority of our computers, but didn't want to spend a lot of money on Adobe's PDF program per month on four or five of our other computers that don't have Adobe Suite. Nitro is extremely cheaper than that and isn't a monthly fee. The software is also easy to use--we can edit, sign, and manipulate files using this program the same as we would with Adobe.

Cons: There isn't really a downside to this software at all. It does what we need it to do and works greatly for our business.

Pros: Nitro gives me the ability to convert PDF files to Microsoft word doc, also i can view pdf files, input entries into PDF forms and much more. With nitro its all in one package so i do need to need to utilize another PDF reader to view documents. Nitro also has Nitro Cloud where i can save all my files and retrieve them from any device either from mobile or laptop. Another good feature of using Nitro is the ability to set password to PDF docs and keep my contents secure at all times. Moreover, Nitro is the only application that works on Mobile phones, i am always on the go and need app to view PDF files right away, and so by using nitro App its great.

Cons: Nitro is pricing can be a little expensive considering there are new releases of the application each year, and i have to buy new licenses every time when a new Nitro is available to use.

Pros: The tool to separate and join pdf files is perfect, it allows you to create documents by taking certain sheets of other files. The tool to convert PDF to Word, Excel and Power Point is also very powerful.

Cons: The conversion tool from PDF to Excel works well in files with few data, if the document has a lot information, the conversion can be a disaster. The amount of features can make it run very slow if your computer has few resources.

Overall: Nitro PDF was my main ally when it came to converting the legal files of an organization in which I worked to PDF format. The results are excellent and fast, in addition to being able to extract sheets of different documents to join it in a new file. It is also great to be able to add notes to the pdf.

Pros: The purchasing decision was primarily made due to the one off licensing cost. It is really easy to install and offers nearly all the features of adobe acrobat. nitro offer the option to upgrade older licenses for a lower cost than purchasing outright which is nice.

Cons: You don't get any feature updates after the initial purchase. They also don't have a Mac version which is a shame as the demand for one is there.

Pros: It is very easy to use, you can convert files from office to pdf in simple steps, you can also add the user's handwritten signature and the company stamp in a digital way, so you can avoid printing the document to sign and seal and then re-digitize it to send it via email. It allows to create a virtual printer to create pdf when printing as does Google Chrome.

Cons: I think it should have a price option of one to ten users, since the price is high for a basic user.

Overall: With this software I have been able to save paper and time by avoiding unnecessary printing, since I can digitally add the signature and stamp of the documents I sent by email

Pros: Allows to convert several types of files to PDF,

allows you to digitally stamp and sign documents (you must scan it first) ,

by doing this you are avoiding printing many things, which will save you money and is more ecological, especially in the case where you should print something just to sign it and send it by mail.

allows you to create a virtual printer with which you can print digitally in a PDF file any file or image that can be printed physically

Cons: The price is somewhat expensive if you are a single user, but the benefit is that for that price will serve up to 50 licenses and you will have one year of the Cloud service

Overall: I saved a lot of money by not having to print things that should be sent again by mail with a simple signature and stamp

Pros: Available as Nitro PDF download that is not only free but allows you to sign documents and also do some editing. One of my favorite software applications. I use it on a daily basis and find it works better than its more well-known counterpart. I have never had to use support. Very easy to figure things out yourself or use their help files.

Cons: Nothing to dislike. This is a great product. I think it is even better than the "other" brand that most people use. The cost is a little high but it is still less expensive than that other software.

Overall: Easy to use for reading and editing PDF files.

Pros: Easy, full featured product that costs far less than other, similarly capable options. I'm a huge fan of the OCR and document signing features in particular.

Cons: I really have no problems whatsoever with the product. It fits all of my needs, but, if I were to quibble about anything, it would be the relative speed of handling large PDFs. This is a problem with any similarly-situated product, however, so not a knock on Nitro.

Pros: I have used Adobe, Foxit readers but none of them were able to satisfy my exact need. I have been using Nitro PDF for more than 5 years. It's more than sufficient for editing, reviewing with its incredible features than any other above mentioned software. Price is also satisfactory. Highly recommended

Cons: It has a minor problem while saving your pdf after editing sometimes it gets hangs.

A very user-friendly interface and a reliable piece of software!

Pros: Well, going for Nitro Pdf boils down to answering the question: why Nitro and not Adobe? Firstly, theres the price, which is definitely on the former's side. Secondly, there are a number of aspects that I like about Nitro. It has a well-organized interface so that the features one commonly uses with a Pdf software can be seen at a glance. And this has a lot to do with Microsoft Office's ribbon design, which makes Nitro a much more comfortable experience than Adobe. Closely related to Nitro's well-thought interface are the useful and discreet popups at opening a document. They inform you whether the Pdf is restricted, signed, scanned, etc. suggesting at the same time a course of action.

Now, to be more specific, I like that you can rely on using Nitro's OCR, as converting image-based Pdfs to editable text yields accurate results. If you just want to turn documents into Word, you'll find that the process is fast and truthful to the original Pdf. Combining and splitting documents are also very easy.

Cons: I haven't found any drawbacks so far. In fact, it's good to see that unlike some older versions, which seemed somewhat unstable to me, the current Nitro is a stable and reliable tool.

Pros: I love how Nitro allows you to easily convert PDF's into text so that you can actually manipulate the content within the PDF. Also, Nitro will convert the PDF into any of the Microsoft Office files that are needed for the job.

Cons: The user interface isn't the easiest to navigate through. Simply saving the file requires additional clicks that most other software does not.

Overall: Efficient PDF capabilities

Pros: I use the form and text editing features frequently. The text editing works so much better with Nitro then it did with Adobe. The forms are easy to use, however took the longest time getting used to during the transition. The amount of resources online that explain how to accomplish certain things with Nitro are plenty and very helpful.

Cons: The greatest challenge and for me personally biggest disadvantage of Nitro compared to Adobe Acrobat is the digital signature functionality. Getting a digital, validated signature on a document that is subsequently looked for any further editing is not intuitive and had had to watch and read various online resources to figure it out. Also, I am unable to get my electronic signature pad to work, even though both Nitro and the pad manufacturer claim its compatibility with Nitro.

Overall: Due to the less intuitive digital signature feature and the lack of supporting my electronic signature pad I had been very skeptical of Nitro in the beginning. Now that I have the digital signature application figured out, I am finding myself choosing Nitro over Adobe more frequently.

An excellent, versatile alternative to Adobe Acrobat, minus the expense.

Pros: I have been using Adobe Acrobat Standard in its various editions (currently XI) for many years and have been very satisfied with it, but now that they have moved to cloud mode, they have discontinued support for their current non-cloud version forcing me to find an alternative to this complicated and relative featureless version of Adobe. Fortunately, Nitro PDF Pro has filled the gap easily and with MUCH less expense. It has a multitude of easy to use features, in fact easily surpassing Adobe, and manages a variety of documents with ease.

Cons: The learning curve for me was a little steep, but I am so used to Adobe that I think that was really the only problem. I have only been using it for about six weeks, and have already become quite comfortable with it, and have experienced no problems that I could not resolve. I had one little issue that I contacted tech support about, and they answered me within hours, completely resolving my problem.

Overall: All the features of Adobe Standard Edition, with a multitude of extra features, and none of the high cost subscription fees.

Cons: The only gripe I have is that I'm yet to locate a 'print all' function for when you have multiple tabs open. It may exist, I just haven't found it!

Pros: It has many options to import from several types of files, it allows me to mix several pdf files in one, flip the sheets that have been scanned badly, scan directly from a scanner, even create a virtual printer that you can use from any other application, I can put notes, highlight important lines, put pins for quick searches

Cons: can be costs for a single user, from the point of view of the installer does not allow blocking certain options for the end user

Overall: for an end user that I support I needed to print something urgent and then send it by email, as your scanner was failing we decided to use this program, now we have realized that we are spending less paper by skipping the step of printing and then scanning

Pros: This is a good program for those that want functionality but not a huge full blown program like Adobe. I can type text in documents sent to me such as lien waivers and I can split files down into individual pages. It just works for me and isn't too complicated

Cons: Support. They aren't the best and you can't just call them you have to put in a ticket.

The ability to convert documents from PDF to word/excel is a major plus for Nitro.

Cons: At times, while viewing PDFs, the software will omit text. Usually restarting and reopening the document will fix the issue.

Pros: I use nitro as my default converter tool and as a reader. It is a much cheaper option than other ones in the market and it really works like a charm for me, specially as a pdf reader.

Cons: Nitro's conversion tool is really great, howerver sometimes I get errors, if there is a watermark in the document, then that part gets really fuzzy and I have to reconvert it.

Overall: Nitro is an excellent software both for conversion (with minor errors when there are watermarks) and reading pdfs, I totally recommend it to everybody.

Pros: Adobe is ridiculously expensive, so we used this product for approximately six months. It was much more affordable to license our users with Nitro and it did have the majority of the features that Adobe offered. Also, the customer service team is phenomenal and did their best to address any issues/bugs we came across.

Cons: We ran into issues with the reader lagging unexpectedly and sometimes completely freezing, requiring us to close and reopen the program. There were also a few features that seemed to be missing from the software. Lastly, we keep getting spammed by email offers to renew with Nitro to this day, even though we've unsubscribed from their emails and have moved on from their software.

Overall: Nitro is definitely the best price for what you get, though be warned that not all features of Adobe are built into Nitro. The customer service team were incredibly helpful. The sales/marketing team could dial it back a bit with the spam emails. All in all, Nitro is definitely worth considering for PDF reader/editor alternatives.

Pros: Familiar interface is easy to use once you get the hang of it. This converter does just about everything I need it to do. I have had very good luck in converting to Word documents to PDF with Nitro, seemingly with fewer errors that Acrobat.

Cons: Seems a bit clunky and sluggish at times. Also, the lack of a mobile app is disappointing.

Overall: As a cost-cutting measure, my institution recently began using Nitro Pro in place of Adobe Acrobat on many of our campus machines. At first I balked. I thought there was no way this was going to do the job that acrobat had done. I was pleasantly surprised by the functionality of Nitro. Not the sleekest program out there, but this met my needs.

Pros: The ability to convert the PDF to excel or word files. The ability to edit the document by adding text, highlights, headers and footers.

Cons: Sometimes the program can freeze and become unresponsive. This causes me to lose my pdf and start over.

Overall: It helps me work through my day faster. I use hundreds of PDF's on a weekly basis that all need a proper naming convention, header, footer, and need to be extracted to .XML or Word files. This benefits me with the ability to edit the PDF as well by adding notes.
