"Converts in a simple way"

May 22, 2015  |  By Dolores L. Lewis

 |  Version: Free PDF to Text Converter 1.0

Pros

The free PDF to Text converter is a tool that everyone can benefit from. Even though the PDF format is very popular, some people are comfortable working with Text format just because of the fact that it is not restricting. So, if you are looking for a tool that is handy, this is it!

Cons

Takes time to load.

"PDF to the convenience of Text"

May 06, 2015  |  By Miriam R. Sermons

 |  Version: Free PDF to Text Converter 1.0

Pros

Everyone knows that you can't edit PDFs easily. Turning them to texts is a good option and this app does that very well. I really like the plain interface and the simple operation. It doesn't take long to understand how the app works and you can just get on with work

Cons

Didn't find any

May 05, 2015  |  By Ila H. Hall

 |  Version: Free PDF to Text Converter 1.0

Pros

I needed a PDF to text converter and this one turned out to be exactly what I wanted. All I needed to do was download it. Very easy to use with a clean, blunt interface. The conversions are pretty snappy so I didn't waste too much time converting PDFs. For a free app, it's nice.

Cons

Limited features.

"No More Worries About Modifying My PDF Files"

April 17, 2015  |  By Jean J. May

 |  Version: Free PDF to Text Converter 1.0

Pros

Since I could not modify the contents of my PDF files, I wanted to have an app that converts the files into Text. The Free PDF to Text Converter is an easy-to-use tool with a simple interface. The app works fast. It supports batch conversion and I can convert password-protected files also.

Cons

This fast and efficient app has no negative aspects.

"Helpful Application"

April 16, 2015  |  By Dunk Johnson

 |  Version: Free PDF to Text Converter 1.0

Pros

This one might not be very useful for everyone but can come in handy any time. You might not want to convert pdfs to other professional formats every time. You might need it only in the form of a text. So, this is the best thing to do is to use this converter. The tool is easy to install and easy to use as well.

Cons

None...........

"Spyware infestation"

May 31, 2014  |  By AzzidReign

 |  Version: Free PDF to Text Converter 1.0

Pros

Asks you to install about 4-5 things of spyware trash. If you don't know what you are doing, you might miss it right away. Had to click decline every time until it started to install. The converter didn't work for me but I'm assuming it was because it was a scanned document and not made as a text pdf.

Cons

The converter didn't work for me but I'm assuming it was because it was a scanned document and not made as a text pdf. I've since found onlineocr which works for what I need without the spyware.

Summary

While this program may work, WATCH OUT FOR THE SPYWARE WHEN YOU LAUNCH THE EXE.

"DO NOT DOWNLOAD - CONTAINS VIRUS - DONE WITH CNET"

May 14, 2014  |  By NanoProfessor

 |  Version: Free PDF to Text Converter 1.0

Pros

None - never even installed. Hopefully I don't have any viruses.

Cons

As others have noted, this contains viruses and malware. I used to come to CNET because I could trust their downloads. They were free from embedded toolbars and adware. Then they started including those unless you chose "advanced options" during your install (which just means "I don't want malicious crap installed on my computer"). Now it seems their downloads just have plain old viruses. This will be the last time I visit CNET. Once you were great, CNET, but something changed and now you are everything you weren't supposed to be.

Summary

This program is dangerous. CNET is too.

Updated on May 14, 2014

Sorry, forgot to specify that it didn't install because AVG identified a virus. While sometimes this happens erroneously, I've had too many bad experiences with CNET downloads in the last two years to think it wasn't a virus. I trust AVG over CNET downloads at this point.
