Editors' Review

For many people, Adobe Reader is their go-to PDF reader. The program is free, easy to use, and very popular. But it's a PDF reader in the strictest sense of the word; there's really not much you can do with it besides view a PDF file. Foxit Reader Portable is a versatile program that adds many useful features to the PDF-viewing experience. Much more than just a reader, the program is actually a limited PDF editor, allowing users to make marks and notes on PDFs and easily share them.

The program's interface is attractive and intuitive, utilizing the typical PDF reader format; there are menus across the top, and a couple of toolbars beneath them. The usual PDF reader features are here; users can search for text within the document, zoom and rotate pages, attach the document to an e-mail, and so on. But where Foxit Reader Portable really shines is with its editing features. It's not a full-fledged PDF editor--you can't actually change the content of the document--but there are plenty of options for making notes and marks. Users can add text, arrows, strikethroughs, insertion marks, and more. We were also impressed that the program allows users to select certain portions of the document to be copied as an image file. Images and even videos can be inserted into the PDF, another nice touch. The program comes with a lengthy PDF Help file that covers all of its functions in detail. Overall, we think that Foxit Reader Portable is a great program; it works well as a basic PDF reader, but it offers plenty of useful features for users who need to make annotations and other additions to their PDF documents.

Foxit Reader Portable installs and uninstalls without issues. We highly recommend this program to all users.

    "Foxit is excellent -- the add-ons included are trash"

    October 04, 2013   |   By jskulp

    Version: Foxit Reader Portable 6.0.6

    Pros

    A fairly quick reader that has all of the functionality that is generally needed. Allows resizing and printing, works easily.

    Cons

    BEWARE WHEN INSTALLING -- there are 3 addons on the initial page that have to be deselected (according to other reviews they are very messy to uninstall).

    Summary

    Great product, avoid the add-ons
