“Powerful”

ProsIt's currently the standard when reading and creating PDF's. Lots of features for handling the document and the Optimization features work pretty well.
ConsExpensive, fairly big learning curve. You really need to know how to program to take advantage of the software. Doc makes it hard to search for functions unless you already know about them.

“Best on the market for what it does”

ProsUses same core libraries as Acrobat and therefore gets as close as possible to the "golden standard" of PDF handling software. Wrappers add a nice higher level of abstraction that simplifies working with PDFs at low level.
ConsEven though overall quality level is pretty high there are bugs, just like in any complex system.

“Edit any document without wasting paper”

OverallBecoming more productive by being able to take care of all the miscellaneous changes in our documents makes a huge difference.
ProsI love how easy it is to edit any document in a very short time without needing to print anything, make the adjustment and scan it back in the computer. Also, it's super helpful when it comes to using signatures on any of the documents that require that.
ConsThere's nothing crossing my mind that I can honestly say I disliked about this product.

“Great for management of a lot of pdf files”

ProsIn academia a major part of our research is kept on pdfs, and this software allows for easy management, printing, and editing of those files. The features are very straightforward and the software is intuitive.
ConsA more robust set of tools would allow for better customization and cataloging of, for example, highlighted passages.
