Editors' review

PDF-XChange Viewer presents users with an alternative to Adobe's Acrobat Reader. With some interesting additions, it's not hard to see this reader gaining some fans over its more popular competition.

The program's interface looks and feels remarkably like Acrobat Reader, but with more command icons along the top. Users who are familiar with viewing PDFs will find this fairly intuitive, but newcomers are advised to experiment with the options and pay attention to the Help file. Viewing PDFs is incredibly simple and should not be a problem for users. The documents look good through the reader and are easily navigated. While the program is good for simply looking at PDFs, it excels with its added features. The control panel along the top displays a long list of options for editing your PDFs. The most useful we found was the option for making bright red shapes and lines, which can be utilized to mark errors and make comments (an element that has always been one of Acrobat's best tools). Here, XChange Viewer gives users more options than its competition, allowing for more in-depth markups.

This free program imitates its competition in all the right places and gives users some extra features where it counts, combining into an excellent download option for anyone looking for an alternative to Acrobat Reader.

    "Tried to inject malware into my newly formatted PC"

    June 03, 2014   |   By Oracle56

    Version: PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.214


    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.


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


    *** 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."

    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.


    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.


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