    "Deleted for Desktop Version"

    November 3, 2014  |   By momule

    Version: PDF Reader for Windows 8 1.0.1.1666

    Pros

    It's quick but.

    Cons

    Saves previously opened files and usually opens the last file viewed rather than what is currently wanted. Have dealt with this Win8.1 app and am tired of it. Tired of Win8.1 to but that's addressed in a different review.

    Summary

    I am sick to death of Win8 apps. Cute interface but usually the app is either an abbreviated and quirky version of the full desktop version or when started the app closes the Win8 gui and opens the app in the desktop. As has always happened in Windows from the very beginning. This app is no different.

    "Even works with Windows 8.1 Preview"

    August 2, 2013  |   By SandyOnMac

    Version: PDF Reader for Windows 8 1.0.1.1666

    Pros

    A simple reader that allows me to open, view, and print. Mouse scroll support is perfect. You can use this PDF Reader to copy your desired PDF page as graphics or as text.

    Cons

    If I can select my desired portion of a PDF document, for example, if my preferred chart can be cut out of Page 5, I will be much happier!

    Summary

    Satisfied. It's free! No strings attached!

    "Best Free PDF Reader on Windows 8"

    March 31, 2013  |   By LindaJacksonAtwork

    Version: PDF Reader for Windows 8 1.0.1.1666

    Pros

    This app is fast. I can easily set it as the default PDF reader on my Windows 8. The Microsoft PDF Reader does not handle PDF files well, for instance, Microsoft reader does not allow you to open two PDF documents and compare.

    Cons

    Not many features, but enough for my work.

    Summary

    Perhaps the best Free PDF Reader on Windows 8.

    "Average PDF Reader"

    January 24, 2013  |   By craigminah

    Version: PDF Reader for Windows 8 1.0.1.1666

    Pros

    Small and quick PDF reader

    Cons

    CNET's installed is a piece of junk that seems like it's trying to install smiley face apps, browsers, and other junk and it's worded in a way that tries to trick the user into installing crapware.

    Summary

    Decent reader but there's better out there. DO NOT USE CNET'S INSTALLER.

    "Best text rendering quality of all free PDF readers"

    December 10, 2012  |  

    Version: PDF Reader for Windows 8 1.0.1.1666

    Pros

    Most people don't expect much from their PDF reader. They want to double-click a PDF file and have it open quickly. Beyond this, some users may want to see thumbnails every page, browse the table of contents or do some basic editing such as rotation. This PDF Reader gives the user like me to do these things quickly and easily on my Windows 8 laptop.

    Cons

    I'd like to be able to customize the tool bars a little more, then lock them in place. This is a minor detail though. PDF Reader for Windows 8 ROCKS!

    Summary

    Fast, easy to use, excellent set of tools, and free. Adobe reader has met it's match, PDF Reader for Windows 8 is a very good easy to use progam. Bye Bye Adobe bloatware.

    "The best PDF reader I've ever seen"

    December 9, 2012  |   By MaryOnCloud

    Version: PDF Reader for Windows 8 1.0.1.1666

    Pros

    Installed this freeware program, and it works as advertised. I can open all my electronic bills and W9 forms at home. In the office I can open all financial reports. Thumb up!

    Cons

    Less feature than Adobe Reader XI

    Summary

    All in all the free application works on Windows 8 as expected, starts up, and loads PDF files extremely fast. Recommend to everyone!

    "Cannot use."

    December 2, 2012  |   By DaveNewt

    Version: PDF Reader for Windows 8 1.0.1.1666

    Pros

    Works on some PDF files.

    Cons

    I receive my Electricity bill in PDF but I can't read it with Windows 8 - no problem with Win7. So I can still not use Windows 8 for my PDF.

    Summary

    My email: geninno@mweb.co.za - send me an email address and I can send you my PDF file. Thanks. Dave.

    Updated on Dec 2, 2012

    In all fairness to you, I tried the latest Adobe reader and that also does not read my file in Win8. - Boot up with Win7 and voila - no prob.
