"Hijacked my browser"

February 01, 2016  |  By Foxfier

2016-02-01 11:52:48  |  By Foxfier

 |  Version: Free PDF Reader 1.0

Pros

Did, in fact, open a PDF file.

Cons

Read the PDF as a (grainy) image, when it was text in adobe. I would guess that Adobe has text recognition of some sort, while this one just reads exactly what was scanned in.

Installed "Chromium" which then opened my existing Chrome install, changing all the search preferences.
This is after I declined the various "offers."
Only noticed because in windows 10 I have my Chrome profile pinned to the bar-- and it was opening as if it were a different program, but was still on my profile. Then I noticed the changed search results. I don't know what else it did, when I noticed that my search was changed to yahoo I went and found that Yahoo, Ask.com, Safesearch and Conduit (!!!) had been added. I haven't even done a malware scan yet.

Summary

If you've got a machine you don't care about unwanted program changes on, go for it.

Installing the right type of PDF reader tool is essential to view these files. Free PDF Reader app is the perfect choice for this purpose. I had no issues while installing and using this freeware.

Cons

"Once the PDF file downloaded, it cannot be opened!"

December 15, 2015  |  By Rafique Suleman

2015-12-15 00:15:41  |  By Rafique Suleman

 |  Version: Free PDF Reader 1.0

Pros

NONE TO STATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cons

In the earlier version, I could save the file for future reading. With this version, the saved file does not open. I can view the downloaded PDF file, however, it cannot be stored for future archiving. I shall remove it and find some other alternate that serves my purpose. Bye bye PDF Reader.

Summary

Waste of time if downladed, specially, when better free alternates are available.

"NOT WORTH THE DOWNLOAD!"

May 09, 2015  |  By ganerd

2015-05-09 18:36:22  |  By ganerd

 |  Version: Free PDF Reader 1.0

Pros

NOT WORTH THE DOWNLOAD!

Cons

Fraudulently claims it is FREE yet it is CLEARLY ad-ware!
Their website blocked by anti-virus AND web security programs as MALWARE!!!
SO, if you download via CNET's ad-ware supported downloader TRIPLES your problems!
Doesn't integrate with windows (support drag and drop)
Basic links in PDF files, like email addresses, don't do anything (i.e. are inactive).
Doesn't integrate with Firefox as well as the free Foxit
HARD TO REMOVE!!!

Summary

I agree chuckellerslie, "The gap between this and (say) Foxit Reader is enormous - different league"
NOT WORTH THE DOWNLOAD!

November 28, 2014  |  By chuckellerslie

2014-11-28 10:14:51  |  By chuckellerslie

Pros

Doesn't support drag and drop
Basic links in PDF files, like email addresses, don't do anything (i.e. are inactive).

Summary

The gap between this and (say) Foxit Reader is enormous - different league

Updated on Nov 28, 2014

The install process tries to get you to install a string of other programs - be careful!
