    "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.

    Version: Soda PDF Max 6.0.05.13783

    Pros

    i read that this is a 5-star-rated program so i wanted to download the program and see myself. but when i read the reviews here, i saw all this ad and spam stuff that came with the downloader here so I just downloaded the application from the company website and entered the activation key that i got in my email. and it worked out perfectly fine. no spam no ads nothing!

    Cons

    Nothing to speak of

    "Poor piece of software."

    January 23, 2014  |   By ghinfla

    Version: Soda PDF Max 6.0.05.13783

    Pros

    Doesn't work nearly as well as the Nuance product although it was a free download.

    Cons

    Converted a legal file and it was illegible. Told me that it had Russian language (it didn't). Took me 30 minutes to clean up all the crap that came with it. Therefore I don't use Download very much.

    Summary

    Waste of time.

    Easy to use with a sleek interface. All the settings are easy to identify and implement. I really have to say the modular options you can add are a really cool feature!

    No complaints

    I find it odd that I only found out about this software recently given how well it works

    "Very attractive PDF software"

    January 21, 2014  |   By Sugger94

    Version: Soda PDF Max 6.0.05.13783

    Pros

    Great solution for both business and personal uses. I especially like the OCR capability as it frequently comes in handy in my line of work. Perfectly compatible with my Windows 8 computer and Windows 7 Lenovo laptop. The customizable modules are a brilliant idea that really made me appreciate the value of this product. I have already converted a few of my colleagues to Soda PDF and they all seem to enjoy it as well

    Cons

    It took just a little bit of time to learn the basics but after that it was a breeze.

    Summary

    I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a customizable PDF software. I don't think I've ever managed to find one before. Like I said, I already have a few colleagues that use it and they all seem to be happy... Soda must be doing something right !
