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.

"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.
