Editors' Review

+

PDF-XChange Viewer provides a host of useful features to go along with superior functionality in letting you view and mark up PDFs with ease. The software will open PDFs saved on your computer or you can download them directly with the app. Navigating the PDF once its open is straightforward, as well, and there are many navigation and editing tools available on the toolbar across the top of the window.

The interface of this app provides a lot of versatility without over-complicating the layout. Just about every tool you need for marking up and viewing your PDF is displayed at the top of the screen. We were impressed that you can customize this layout to minimize clutter by selecting the tools you do and don't want displayed from the Tools' drop-down menu. Options include comment and mark up tools, link tools, measuring tools, and zoom tools. Navigating the document, itself, is quick and convenient, with multiple options for how pages are displayed and how many are on the screen at a time.

Commenting is supported and easy to insert and you can e-mail a document directly from the app as long as you have a compatible mail program installed, as well. Another convenient feature is the search box at the top of the screen that provides quick access to various online sources such as Wikipedia, Bing, Google, Yahoo, and others. Overall, this is a great product with an intuitive interface and lots of helpful features.

"Tried to inject malware into my newly formatted PC"

June 03, 2014  |  By Oracle56

 |  Version: PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.214

Pros

There are no pros to this malware spreader.

Half a star because I had to select a value. In fact, this should be five negative stars. You want a pdf reader and you get a nasty piece of malware.

Cons

Tried to f**k up my laptop, with some sort of impossible to remove browser hijacker.

Summary

*** has happened to the old Download.com, a site I remember fondly for being safe and useful? It is now neither of these things! If I didn't read the small print in this d/l, this was about to inject a very nasty piece of malware into my system. I couldn't opt out, ffs! The opt-out box was greyed out!!

Donwload.com, you can take the dirty money from these malware companies, but it's not worth the damage being done to your reputation. The only time I will ever come back here is to spread the word in these review boxes that you've become a spreader of malware, trojans and browser hijackers. Very, very disappointing!

"Great product! Nice editing features in their Editor."

April 04, 2014  |  By firemonkey123

 |  Version: PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.214

Pros

I really like this viewer. This company has an update that is an editor. I also really like there support staff. Those guys are EXTREEMLY quick to respond, when I bought their pro version (which is really well priced BTW!) the responded to my email in under a minute! Yeah I know! The features are really nice.

Cons

Better to get the free version through Tracker software's website (the creators of this program). Downloading through this site puts a whole lotta shyte on my PC when downloading it from other websites.

Summary

Overall extremely satisfied with the actual product and with Tracker's support.

"It's ok, but who needs the host of additional programs"

December 11, 2013  |  By Seewig

 |  Version: PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.212

Pros

works well and is easy to use

Cons

A number of additional programs that infest themselves are installed concurrently without much control by the user.
Watch for all kinds of little boxes and uncheck them

Summary

It's not worth the fight of getting rid all the additional programs

"PDF Xchange Viewer = Chronic pain"

December 06, 2013  |  By Arash

 |  Version: PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.212

Pros

The claims it makes keeps you hoping...

Cons

Its intermittent hiccups ans hangups has been the worst in my life time using PCs. This is a disgracefully unstable program.

Summary

If its behavior doesn't change in upcoming updates I just cleanse my system from its unwelcome agony, and leave this review behind; else, I'll come back and review this view...

"Free Version: Waste of time"

November 30, 2013  |  By EnglishSOS3v5

 |  Version: PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.212

Pros

Nothing at all

Cons

Don't quick the automatic install. Use custom option otherwise you'll install loads of programs and toolbars YOU don't want.
Program is a waste of time - you only get features you want with the PRO version. Stick with the Free Adobe Reader. You won't be able to edit any PDF with the Trial version.

Summary

If you want to edit or do anything more than read a PDF document, don't waste your time with the free / trial version.

"Does what I need it to for free."

November 22, 2013  |  By jandsm5321

 |  Version: PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.212

Pros

Has lots of features for a free PDF viewer: Loads fast, opens files in multiple tabs, remembers where you were last time you opened a file, and much more!

Cons

It does have an ad in the top corner encouraging you to upgrade to the Pro version, but nothing annoying.

Summary

It didn't install anything when I installed it. I think those other people are experiencing user error, not problems with this program.

I just unchecked the boxes to not install other programs when I installed it, which is the case with about every program these days.

Also, don't use Cnet's downloader if you don't have to, all it is there for is to display ads and help people with terrible internet get a reliable download.
