    "bloated and useless"

    August 19, 2013  |   By salesalex

    Version: Nuance PDF Reader 7

    Pros

    none............

    Cons

    installation was long and it made too much registry entries and installed some idiotic 'software updater' without asking during setup which wanted to update it after installation . It has only few useful functions for so big installation file.

    Summary

    do not install Nuance PDF Reader

    "Failed to convert PDF to docx"

    April 14, 2012  |   By canthavethat

    Version: Nuance PDF Reader 7

    Pros

    Fine as a reader.

    Cons

    Converted a pdf to to a docx, but converted file was corrupt and could not be opened. Repeated with same result. So not impressed with the converter, which was what I downloaded it for!

    Summary

    Uninstalled.

    "Superior to Adobe Acrobat Reader on multiple levels."

    February 21, 2012  |   By djwhite077

    Version: Nuance PDF Reader 7

    Pros

    Loads very fast...so much so that you don't even mind opening and closing it many times a day!!

    Cons

    Would be nice if you could do at least some basic editing with it.

    Summary

    I have used this instead of Adobe Acrobat Reader for several years now. There are features and things it will not do, but it is still far superior to Acrobat Reader....to include the fact that it load significantly faster. I also like the on-line conversion feature.

    "sooooo much better than adobe"

    February 11, 2012  |   By hmazuji

    Version: Nuance PDF Reader 7

    Pros

    it works great (i'm using xp). i've never had any kind of issue with it.

    Cons

    i haven't experienced a single one. i can't see how anyone could rate this software less than perfect. i haven't read the other reviews, so i can't domment on them.

    Summary

    i am so dissatisfied with adobe for their twisted marketing strategies. nuance does everything i need a pdf reader to do, without obnoxious marketing gimmicks.

    "I could not uninstall it by normal techniques."

    October 30, 2011  |   By will_not

    Version: Nuance PDF Reader 7

    Pros

    I don't know. I simply wanted to uninstall the program--not to use it. See below.

    Cons

    I tried to uninstall it in the same manner that I have sucessfully uninstalled hundreds of programs in the past. I get a window saying "Do you want to allow the following program to update the software on this computer?" It doesn't matter whether I click "yes" or "no" THE PROGRAM WILL NOT UNINSTALL.

    Summary

    Now I am stuck with a program that I do not want on my computer.

    "I Can Edit PDF Files!"

    October 3, 2011  |   By JPM2010

    Version: Nuance PDF Reader 7

    Pros

    PDF Editor
    Familiar Set up

    Cons

    Takes some time to learn
    Grey areas without access or explanation

    Summary

    I use Nuance as a PDF Editor. When making changes and modifications in my job I am sometimes only provided with PDF files that are meant for print. Nuance allows me to make the necessary changes to get my job done.
    Thanks Nuance.

    "A reader with all features but installs extra software."

    July 24, 2011  |   By moonfern

    Version: Nuance PDF Reader 7

    Pros

    The reader is comparable with foxit reader, you can search pdf documents or entire directories with pdf files for keywords. Search is really well implemented. You can also see layers, looks good too.

    Cons

    Installs a program called software updater and doesn't notify you about it. This program has an autoruns entry and is meant for autoupdating the nuance software. You cannot uninstall it unless you uninstall nuance. It also place a shortcut on desktop

    Summary

    It's good software but there are good alternatives. I really don't like software with sneaky behaviour. The autoupdater program is not from nuance but from this company: http://www.flexerasoftware.com. There's no uninstaller and what is more when you close that program, it doesn't exit it still runs in the background. (it becomes windowless). Nuance place a desktop shortcut without asking first and it's options are well rather limited. I didn't check if the program itselfs phone home, there are no privacy options in Nuance which is strange. Bottomline: It's good software but for me it's sneaky behaviour spoils it.
