"Trash - waste of bandwidth"

May 25, 2015  |  By JimStinson52

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.007.20033

Pros

None - but in all honesty, once I discovered that I couldn't use it for my primary purpose, I deleted it and reloader Reader XI

Cons

Took away the ability for me to sign multiple names to contracts, didn't keep looking after that.

Summary

Piece of malware as far as I am concerned. I deleted it within 5 minutes of installing it.

"Terrible! Uninstalled immediately"

May 18, 2015  |  By editmyupdates

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.007.20033

Pros

None that I noticed.

Cons

They've gone to the "My Weekly Reader" format with large fonts, lots of white space. When I first opened it, I had to scroll down 2 screens to see the bottom of the page. They force users into their cloud and by default turn on tracking.

If you feel like giving it a try, DO NOT DELETE YOUR OLDER INSTALLER. You may very well want to uninstall this version and reinstall the earlier one - which works just fine. I think that "DC" stands for Dog Cr...

Summary

Very poor upgrade. I might expect this from a paid product, but to inflict this on users of a free product that has LOTS of alternatives?

I reinstalled version 10. When that stops working, I'll use one of the many free alternative PDF readers. Meanwhile, I won't be renewing my Acrobat+ subscription. This upgrade is wholly absurd.

"i would rate it 0 stars if i could"

May 18, 2015  |  By Neseri Nemocaj

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.007.20033

Pros

i don't see any

Cons

lots, some would be:
-that we can't change the colors and background
-cloud is pretty darn expensive

Summary

people just change something for the sake of changing things, even if it isn't necessary.
cloud is pretty expensive, and by the way, the same tools on the cloud can be found elsewhere FOR FREE.

i'm going back to adobe reader 11, at least that one was better on the eyes

"Adobe Pro DC - I want a refund"

April 30, 2015  |  By drsullivan48

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.007.20033

Pros

None - customer support sucks too.

Cons

Text conversion is horrible. Edit document, auto converts document to text whether you want to or not, the option can't be disable. In the review, the writer said Adobe gives you control over creating/editing your documents, just read from a press release from Adobe DC. You have no control. It automatically does editing, then you have to revert back to the original. Support gives you work arounds because the auto features in DC cannot be disable.. Again, piece of junk. I want a refund!

Summary

It's a piece of crap. I don't need work arounds to stuff that worked before.

Won't install therefore you can't open pdf with this new version.

"file labeled XI installs as 10; Tom's Guide workaround"

October 19, 2014  |  By kmarin

 |  Version: Adobe Reader XI 11.0.09

Pros

By going to the Adobe website, you do get an advance warning of the indefensibly useless & cynical terms of service for XI; we promise nothing, & ha ha, you can't catch me. Per usual, you must agree to it, or you can't download. The file is called "Reader_11_0_en', but as noted above, it reinstalls Reader 10. Very kind, I'm sure...

Cons

...but I did already have 10. If you just need some version of Reader, that's great of course; just remember to decide if you want the Norton which is on "yes" by default. Trying to use Norton with your current virus catcher might scramble things, so don't accept it if you don't need it.
By going to another website (Tom's Guide, which may/not be famous; new to me), I was able to download a different file: install_reader11_en_ltr5x64d_awc_aih.exe. I had to download it twice, as it only partially completed installation the first time. I did successfully install it. (This previously happened w Flash as well; I have to remember to make a copy of the file before clicking on it to install, so I DON'T have to download it again. While there must a number of other sources, this site appears to have downloaded only what I asked for without insisting on pushing other stuff on me.

Summary

Go to Tom's Guide (at http://www.tomsguide.com/us/download/Reader-Adobe,0301-5623.html) to get a workaround vs. Adobe's providing Reader 10 at its XI download link. There's an Apple & a Windows version; type your desired version in the search box if it's not apparent. (Sorry- kind of gruesome to think of either company as a parent; 'tis the season though.)
NOTE: Having just succeeded in downloading XI, I haven't test-driven it yet. I 3-starred only so not to be prejudicial in either direction; the site would not allow a 0-star posting.
