Editors' Review


Soda PDF is an intuitive app for opening, creating, and editing PDF documents.


Modular format: You only install the modules you require, such as those needed to create PDFs or add password protection to PDFs, so you only pay for necessary features.

Quick launch: Soda loads all of its components very quickly.

Professional interface: The interface is professional looking and easy to navigate. It fits right in with Microsoft or Adobe software.


Lengthy installation: If the installation wasn't lengthy enough, the progress on the main application had to reach 100 percent twice before completion. In addition, the installation has an "express" install that includes a third-party toolbar, and you have to select a custom installation to avoid it.

Bottom Line

Soda PDF excels in affordability and usability. You're able to custom build a PDF solution to suit your needs, and the results are excellent.

"Hard to start"

May 29, 2015  |  By oneota--2008

 |  Version: Soda PDF


Once I finally found where SODA was hidden on my computer screen, it coverted quickly.

After each aborted conversion , a second try has always worked.


I downloaded SODA after some fiddling but had no idea where it was or how to find it to use it. Given their big "intuitive" hype, it was really aggravating. About one out of three attempts to convert aborts.

SODA guarantees an answer to questions within 48 hours. I haven't gotten a response, and it's been four days.

There's a whole bunch of unclear text on the SODA pages, some of it is ads, the rest is?
