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.

"More than just a reader"

October 16, 2014  |  By ChrisAllen CNET

 |  Version: Nitro PDF Reader (64-bit) 3.5.6.5

Pros

Allows typing text onto a PDF page. Using this app you can, for example, make entries onto a form that has been scanned into PDF and does not use Acrobat's fancy fill-in-the-blank fields.
Also provides a feature where you can scan or photograph your signature, then use it in Nitro PDF to "e-sign" documents. If you receive a PDF than you're supposed to return signed, this feature lets you accomplish that without having to print, sign, and re-scan the document.

Cons

I wouldn't mind having the ability to delete and move pages.

"Is This Really 64-Bit?!"

August 07, 2014  |  By mindkampf

 |  Version: Nitro PDF Reader (64-bit) 3.5.6.5

Pros

Easy to use; great features for me; with browser plugins.

Cons

See my question - I hope someone can answer.

Summary

Just got my first 64-bit machine, with Win 7 Home, so there could be a gap in my knowledge; trying not to get too PO'd.

If this is a true 64-bit version then why does it install to my x86 folder?

 |  Version: Nitro PDF Reader (64-bit) 3.5.6.5

Pros

none - I can't edit my document without upgrading for money

They LIE about the free trial

Website says they have a free trial but you have to pay to download in advance. I don't know if they refund you or not but I don't pay upfront for 'free' trials.
