Editors' Review

Soda PDF 3D Reader offers you the option of a unique PDF viewing and reading experience, thanks to its patent pending 3D technology. While you can use this program to view PDFs, CBRs, CBZs, and ePubs just as you always have, you also have the ability to switch into 3D mode for a more fully immersive reading experience.

Pros

3D view: The 3D view option is definitely what sets this program apart from other PDF readers. It makes the document appear like a book, and you can turn the pages by clicking and pulling them just like you would in a book, as well. While this may not be especially exciting for work-related documents, it is a nice touch if you're reading an actual book, or especially a comic book through this program.

Link locator: Another nice feature is the button that allows you to quickly find all of the links contained in the document. That means you don't have to go paging through to find what you're looking for.

PDF creator: In addition to reading PDFs, you can also use this app to create them. You can convert files from your computer, from your clipboard, or from the scanner with just a few clicks.

Cons

No editing: The program offers almost no editing features for PDFs, and the couple that are present don't seem to work properly. There are buttons active for highlighting, underlining, and striking out, but using these causes all but the selected text on the page to disappear. To access any more advanced editing functions, you'll have to upgrade to one of the developer's paid programs.

Bottom Line

Soda PDF 3D Reader is a good tool for reading and creating PDFs on your computer. The 3D option is a nice touch that you won't find anywhere else, but the lack of editing function may be a deal breaker for many.

I couldn't find anything wrong with this reader

Summary

This is the top of the line when it comes to 3D PDF readers

"Software-breaking bug"

March 26, 2014  |  By dsidler88

 |  Version: Soda PDF 3D Reader 5.0.30.11889

Pros

None, I can't use it for the only reason I downloaded it.

Cons

I needed a program to convert Word to PDF. Soda claimed to do so, but you need to sign up and get a Key. I didn't want to do this, but would have. However, the workflow is broken, and it won't even let you sign up for the "free bonus features".

Summary

Need a free pdf viewer? Get Adobe Reader. Need anything else? Don't use this.

"Not a CBR reader."

March 17, 2014  |  By Muvizu

 |  Version: Soda PDF 3D Reader 5.0.30.11889

Pros

None what so ever.

Cons

They lied. It doesn't read CBR files, it converts them to PDF's.

Summary

Don't bother. They also want you to download AVG Secure Search. I opted out, but now must check the system to see if they installed it anyway. Don't trust liars.

"Total Scam"

February 22, 2014  |  By Mike_Bethany

 |  Version: Soda PDF 3D Reader 5.0.30.11889

Pros

None
None
None

Cons

Forced signup
NOT a comic book reader like they claim

Summary

Why do companies think they can get away with this kind of garbage? Forced signups to some skanky site? I don't think so. Also their website lies and says this is a comic book reader, it's not. It's a PDF reader, something you don't even need to buy since you can get Adobe Acrobat reader for free without all the slimey spyware BS.

"Runs fast, easy to use, no hassles"

April 17, 2013  |  By marvincidamon

 |  Version: Soda PDF 3D Reader 5.0.15.8803

Pros

The set up was easy and Soda PDF 3D Reader worked as advertised. It loaded up really fast and opening documents was quick too. I tried converting word, excel, powerpoint and even a .jpeg file and they all converted to PDF. I did some keyword searches and the results were compiled fast and accurately. I was able to open .cbz and .cbr files without any major problems as well. The page flipping animation is neat and the annotation tools are a nice bonus. Overall, functionally everything worked great and was exactly what I needed.

Cons

I had to give them an email to activate more features, which I'm not a big fan of doing. It occasionally hangs if you touch the program while it's processing your file for conversion, but if you let it be, it works fine.

Summary

I mostly use Preview on my Mac, but at work I use a PC and I never really thought about PDF use until now. I've used adobe's free reader and it can read PDFs too, but it was always updating and giving me special offers, it was really annoying. Soda doesn't really do that and I actually like having all the extra features Soda offers. Plus downloading old comics and reading them at work is fun! So if you need an alternative to Adobe with more features, or just want to try something less intrusive, give Soda PDF a try!

"Convert to text is useless"

February 24, 2013  |  By KarstenMezini

 |  Version: Soda PDF 3D Reader 5.0.6.8383

Pros

An alternative to Adobe

Cons

I needed it to be able to work with text that I received in a pdf document. Just viewing the document the headlines were distorted, which seems strange. Converting to Word or txt formats failed completely: Not one word was scanned correctly.

Summary

Useless for text extraction from .pdf
Could be great for other purposes, but I wouldn't know.
