Editors' Review

+
This tiny application is efficient and reliable despite the demo version slapping a watermark on generated documents. Go2PDF installs a PDF "printer" in your computer's Control Panel after only a few seconds-long installation. The program also includes a good set of optional settings, including fonts, page format, PDF resolution, and even encryption. During testing, we found that Go2PDF was able to take a previously created text file and "print" it to PDF in a matter of seconds. The trial version does add a watermark to created documents, but such a convenient and speedy performance overshadowed any frustration we might have had with the resulting document. Overall, this is a simple and streamlined PDF converter that works far better than other more complicated, feature-heavy options on the market.

"Free PDF creator for my windows 8"

July 28, 2013  |  By SandyOnMac

 |  Version: Go2PDF 3.32

Pros

I installed this program on my laptop with Windows 8, this free PDF converter just works as expected; the freeware helped me create PDF out of my QuarkXpress.

Cons

Feature limited

Summary

Great app! Recommend!

"Just awful."

April 30, 2009  |  By cnecne

 |  Version: Go2PDF 3.3

Pros

None at all.

Cons

Created a garbled pdf from a simple html file (the only text that could be read was the ad it placed on every single page), and now I can't uninstall it.

Summary

I can't believe how many download sites are giving this three stars.

It's worse than useless, because not only didn't it work on the document I tried it on, now I'm wasting valuable time trying to figure out how to remove it... if I'd only searched a bit more before I tested it, I would have learned this, as it seems queries about how to uninstall go2pdf are quite popular on Google. Ugh.

"very rudimentary"

May 15, 2007  |  By blablupp

 |  Version: Go2PDF 3.3

Pros

possibly works with some standard/simple applications and, hey, it's free, so, if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys

Cons

did not even work with microsoft imaging applications, plus very hard to uninstall, you can download the Go2PDF Removal Tool Go2PDF_Remover.exe from a hidden update site (through Google), but not sure what it exactly does

"It can't be uninstalled"

September 11, 2006  |  By JolileChat

 |  Version: Go2PDF 3.3

Pros

It creates PDFs.

Cons

You get a PDF document with ads in every page.

It can't be uninstalled. You can erase the printer, but a lot of junk will be left inside the HD.

"Poor Product"

July 10, 2006  |  By rajuonline

 |  Version: Go2PDF 3.3

Pros

None

Cons

No uninstallers are provided supposedly because it installs as a printer driver. Makes the program look even more suspicous. Personally I could not successfully convert a single file. Microsoft Word crashed when I converted from there. I would recommend that you do not use this program. Similar and better products that I have used are PrimoPDF and CutePDF. Give them a try instead.

"Does what it should, simple to install and use, small size"

May 21, 2006  |  By baakman

 |  Version: Go2PDF 3.3

Pros

I needed a virtual printer to test printer commands with Delphi and make sure the outcome would have looked as it should. This program was ideal, as I didn't have to waste any ink or paper. Plus it's free :-)

"Does what it says but not much else"

May 16, 2005  |  By godofodd

 |  Version: Go2PDF 3.3

Pros

Quick and easy to install, intuitive to use.

Cons

Places ad on finished product. One would be better off using PDF995 (from pdf995.com) as it gives you a browser pop-up ad after pdf is completed (pdf file is ad-free).
