Editors' Review

Adobe Reader XI allows you to easily read and enter information into PDF files.

Pros

Form submission: Adobe Reader allows you to easily enter information on a PDF form and submit it.

Attention to style: Reader looks great, and the interface is very easy to understand.

Good control: Reader offers excellent control over any document you're viewing. You can zoom, navigate, and search large documents very effectively.

Cons

Clunky installation: Installing Reader is clunky. After downloading the file, the Adobe installer launches, which executes a lengthy installation process. Then when you finally launch the app, your computer informs you that it needs to configure the program and then restart your computer.

Bottom Line

Adobe wrote the book on PDF software, and Reader lives up to its pedigree. It is, simply put, the best program available for this purpose. If you work with PDFs a lot, you'll want it installed on your system.

"Who is right?"

April 02, 2016  |  By dolarmity

Pros

Can not think of any.

Cons

Crashes, all the cons of the other reviewers.

Summary

Question: How is it that the "professional" review is "excellent" and the actual
customer the opposite? Are we missing something?

"Worst version of acrobat since Windows 3.1"

March 18, 2016  |  By TehStone

2016-03-18 10:51:52  |  By TehStone

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.010.20060

Pros

It's free and fast enough (running a SSD so everything's fast). Adobe is probably working on fixing it?

Cons

This is the most unstable piece of software on my computer right now - it crashes frequently so saving is more important than ever. The update made the saving process cumbersome by introducing a new (buggy) UI instead of using the standard windows GUI. It always directs you to save to the cloud first and doesn't remember your saving preferences. Viewing preferences are also not saved so I have to close side panels and navigation panels each time I open a document - very annoying. Does NOT autosave, does crash to desktop frequently when running multiple open documents.

Summary

I've lost all sorts of data due to crashes which is lowering my productivity.
