Editors' Review

Nitro's new free PDF reader takes the key features that you want in a PDF reader, a familiar interface, and smooth functionality and combines them into an eminently usable program that doesn't get in between you and your documents. Nitro has turned the free PDF alternative business model on its ear by providing you with a smart selection of watermark-free editing, drag-and-drop PDF creation, and tabbed PDF reading.

To put it mildly, the feature set is robust. Users can comment on PDFs using notes and text markup, fill out forms, print to PDF, or create one by dragging an existing document into Nitro, share and comment with others, and securely sign a document. This may sound like standard PDF boilerplate, but it's important to emphasize given that they're all free here, and they all work well. The search utility isn't bad, although it would be nice to see Windows 7-style federated in-document searching. The drag-and-drop took a few seconds to begin once initiated, but overall converting a four-page Word document took about 2 minutes. The highlight tool will switch automatically from box highlighting to character highlighting, depending on whether you start highlighting in an empty space or over some text. Nitro sports a ribbon-style interface borrowed from the previously released paid version of Nitro. This may still frustrate some users, but it feels slick and connected to Microsoft Office. If you don't like or need the ribbon, you can hide it with an arrow that lives to the left of the search engine. You can also customize the ribbon, placing your most commonly accessed tools where you need them.

In testing, Nitro's functionality kept pace with its comprehensive toolset. When you install it, it will ask if you want to contribute anonymous usage data. Users are opted in automatically, so if you don't like contributing don't install on autopilot. Nitro PDF Reader Free does more by default than any free PDF reader currently available, does precisely what it advertises, and does it unobtrusively, rocketing it to the top of the PDF pack.

"Top Choice PDF converter - does what you need it to do"

February 12, 2013  |  By weng036

 |  Version: Nitro PDF Reader (32-bit) 3.0.10.7

Pros

Creating PDF from different formats and handling large amounts of pages - Don't bother with free online converters. PrimoPDF really does do it all. As long as your files are numbered chronologically, just open, select all, Print as PrimoPDF and there you have it!

Great interface, easy to use.

Cons

No cons really. I do pretty basic stuff with it, so I have no complaints.

Summary

I usually don't write reviews (ever), but Primo PDF is some great Freeware that I use ALL the time.

"Terrible Customer Service"

January 14, 2013  |  By stormiii

 |  Version: Nitro PDF Reader (32-bit) 3.0.10.7

Pros

It's easy to use.

Cons

The customer service SUCKS.

Summary

I purchased this software many years ago and was semi-pleased with the product. The customer support is totally lacking and trying to get in touch with someone to get a license number if you should purchase a new computer on which to install it is nearly impossible. I have been waiting since October 2012. As someone else stated, if you don't pay for tech support, you'll be hard pressed to get any help with it. I would advise spending a couple of extra dollars and going with a well-known and reputable company that can provide the bang for the buck and it's not Nitro. If you can afford the extra, go with Adobe.

UPDATE: Since posting reviews and complaints about company, I received a call from the company and spoke with Stephanie who resolved my issue promptly. She was not sure why my requests had not received attention and was apologetic and VERY nice. In any event, the problem has been resolved and she did mention that I should submit a ticket through support rather than call from now on for a quick response. I would like to say that I will continue to use their product and hope that this update will show an act of good faith on their part. I am very pleased with the outcome.
