    Version: Soda PDF Max 6.4.08.18629

    Pros

    Since it is my default viewer, I always have Soda PDF 6 open with a variety of documents and i find myself editing directly. Something I could never do with other viwers like Adobe because it was very taxing on my PC.

    Cons

    Nothing wrong here.

    Summary

    The best PDF reader money can buy.

    Version: Soda PDF Max 6.4.08.18629

    Cons

    No problems at all

    Summary

    Really love it and I use it for all my PDF needs.

    "Adobe who?"

    October 24, 2014  |   By IsraelSBasham

    Version: Soda PDF Max 6.4.08.18629

    Pros

    Soda now sets the bar when it comes to PDF readers. I have tried more than 10 PDF files and this program converts PDF to word successfully. Soda PDF 6 has many great features such as being able to design your own PDFs from scratch. The ability to create and combine multiple PDFs into one document.

    Cons

    Not free but worth the price.

    Summary

    Nothing I would rather use to read, open and edit PDFs.

    "Far and away the best document reader I'm aware of."

    October 23, 2014  |   By GloriaRAllen

    Version: Soda PDF Max 6.4.08.18629

    Pros

    Soda PDF reader 6 is extremely flexible, very efficient, and with a wide variety of display options makes this my favorite way to read documents. There's nothing better when the document has a mix of text, graphics, and other media.

    Cons

    I'm not 100% computer literate so I had trouble at first.

    Summary

    I use this reader exclusively as it works fast and doesn't use up resources.

    "The only pdf viewer I use"

    October 22, 2014  |   By TheodoreNMoore

    Version: Soda PDF Max 6.4.08.18629

    Pros

    I have Soda pdf 6 on my laptop and never have any problems with it. I gotta say it's pretty light on its feet and very dependable. The software is easy to use and a joy to work with. The OCR is a feature not found on other softwares. It can recognize text automatically for you.

    Cons

    The install wasn't lightning fast but not that slow... I can live with it.

    Summary

    I would like to recommend it to everyone, I think everyone will benefit from it.

    "Soda 6.2 Crashes AGAIN"

    August 26, 2014  |   By GuyCo1

    Version: Soda PDF Max 6.2.03.16550

    Pros

    A potentially brilliant package as is their sister software PDF Architect.

    Cons

    PDF Architect worked brilliantly for about 12 months but towards the end of the license expiry it started to crash and Lulu software techys were not able to resolve the issues so introduced me to Soda 6 as the operational alternative.
    This was downloaded and installed however from the outset it had problems in trial version. So I bought a license and only got 1 week of use from the package after which it went back to the old ways of PDF Architect.
    Since that time (4-6 months) and numerous interactions with Support, Lulu have not been able to come up any answers as to what troubles the program.
    My hope is that they do get their act together.
    By the way, I'm running Soda 6 on laptop with Windows 7 OS.
    Mine may be a isolated case, so I have offered Lulu the opportunity to remotely access my laptop to interrogate/troubleshoot the problem. They have not responded to this offer to date.
