Editors' Review

+

PrimoPDF is a basic yet powerful application that revolutionizes PDF file creation. You can construct perfect PDF files using the straightforward drag-and-drop tool this application offers.

Pros

Valuable toolkit: PrimoPDF creates all types of files in standard PDF format faster than competitors, making it one of the best free applications we've tried. The custom settings give you the ability to lock files and determine design specifications, so files will be exactly as you want them.

Fast, precise operation: We converted various file formats with PrimoPDF, and our PDFs were created within seconds, no matter the size or type of file. No instance of lessened image quality was observed either.

Cons

Dysfunctional support: PrimoPDF comes with an excellent user guide; however, many of the support links we clicked on were either broken or redirected us elsewhere. We only found the user guide and other assistance via Internet search.

Substandard design: We quickly noticed that nearly half of Primo's program window is consumed by advertisements for other software. This is understandable because it is a free application, but it complicates and detracts from the overall experience, nonetheless.

Bottom Line

PrimoPDF is an awesome, easy-to-use application for quickly creating PDF files. Including a larger, more robust GUI would make using PrimoPDF a tad easier, but there really isn't much that needs changing with this application. We highly suggest you use Primo if you need to create a PDF file; it's fast, reliable, and uncomplicated.

"Adware (open candy) included in download"

February 03, 2015  |  By thereallara

 |  Version: PrimoPDF 5.1.0.2

Pros

None. Can't install it because of the adware

Cons

Open Candy program (thankfully blocked by my antivirus) included in download.

It's a shame, I used to love this program and thought I'd download it to my new computer. It's no longer an option because of the adware included.

"Efficient & easy to use ... but OPEN CANDY is a NO NO"

November 02, 2014  |  By melen001

 |  Version: PrimoPDF 5.1.0.2

Pros

Nice tool and has all the basics. Easy to use and no nagging pop-up ads like other software.

Cons

It is bundled with OPEN CANDY... I had to use Malwarebytes to remove it. I was looking for a PDF tool that was easy with the basics but I will not use PrimoPDF especially after this incident. They should offer an opt-out option or at least let us know about OPEN CANDY. I have uninstalled PDF Primo and will not recommend it even thought it seems to be a very good tool.

Summary

Bundled with OPEN CANDY and I will not use it......
