CNET Editors' review

Nitro PDF is a full-featured PDF reader and editor for Windows, upgraded to meet your needs at home and in the cloud.

Pros

Clean, fast design: Nitro has been redesigned to match modern UIs and fits comfortably with Microsoft's flagship Office suite. In many ways, Nitro is impressively designed, trumping many PDF tools with clear, vibrant icons, intuitive placement of tools, and subtle but intelligent use of color to make important features stand out.

Good value, plus cloud support: Nitro PDF is a robust application in both free and premium editions. Standard actions include the ability to mark up text, fill out documents and forms, create comments, and securely sign documents. You can share and collaborate via Nitro Cloud and work from the browser -- a perfect addition to working remotely, if you don't have access to the native tool.

Familiar work flows: Nitro places standard simple actions like drag and drop throughout the app and its cloud counterpart. When you're editing documents, Nitro provides guides to help you align text boxes and snap to grids.

Cons

Not for ribbon haters: Those who are turned off by ribbon-based layouts might be turned off by Nitro's tool layout.

Bottom Line

Nitro is robust, snappy, and a great alternative to Adobe Reader in so many ways we can barely count. There are very few cons we can think of: Even if ribbon layouts aren't for you, Nitro's execution may make you think otherwise. The entire application feels modern and should be a welcome addition to anyone who manages documents. Anytime you receive a PDF file and don't know how to handle it, turn to Nitro, because chances are the app can handle it.

    "Where is Support?"

    March 7, 2014  |   By ChiefBigWheel

    Version: Nitro Pro 9.0.5.9

    Pros

    Support is in hiding so beware the buyer!
    Not really a Pro but I was required to add something here.

    Cons

    The free versions of NitroPDF Creator don't work well and support is in hiding so WHY would I BUY the current version?

    Summary

    I'm running Windows 7 (new installation) and downloaded the latest version of the free Nitro PDF Creator (3.x.x.x) and installed it successfully. When I try printing (to file) an online course, I am able to use Nitro PDF Creator once to create my target file. If I try to print each chapter of said online course, the second chapter will hang my session and I have to exit completely.
    I downloaded PrimoPDF and PDF Creator and both of these programs work as desired. I go back to Nitro PDF Creator 3 and get the same hang condition. I believe PrimoPDF is just an older version of Nitro but not sure.
    I have been unable to find any support of any kind for this version of Nitro PDF Creator.
    So... I ask - WHY would I pay good money (currently at $139) for something when that vendors FREE version doesn't work and doesn't support it?
