Editors' Review


Cool PDF Reader provides users with a fast and easy way of viewing PDF files. With simple controls and some added benefits, this program is a fine alternative to more popular programs like Acrobat.

The program's interface shouldn't take too much work to understand, since its tightly packed command icons all come with descriptions when the mouse rolls over them. This is fortunate, since the program's online Help file is a confusing maze that we could never sort out. The program begins with users selecting a PDF by using a standard file tree search method. The document opens on the screen clearly, with a single page view. We were pleased to discover zooming in and out, as well as cycling the pages forward and backward was a single mouse click operation on the main screen, though we could not input a specific page to jump to (users must go into a menu for that function). One interesting aspect of the viewer was its Slide Show option, which automatically turns the pages for the user. Overall, the program functioned as we wanted, providing a comparable alternative to Acrobat. The program's most useful feature was its ability to convert PDFs to a number of other formats. To do so, users simply Save As and choose between TXT, BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, WMF and more file types.

By offering a fast and simple way to view and convert PDFs, this freeware program is certain to find fans among users looking for an alternative to Acrobat.

"Not feature extensive enough"

Nice & simple UI.


Very limited. I could not view the pdf's properly like the way they are viewed in the popular readers. No document contents pane.


This is Ok if you just want to 'try' to view pdf's in a very simple way. For me though, it just lacked too many important features of a PDF Viewer/Reader. :(

"Works better than expected."

I pre-paid for a product, not yet on the market. Receiving a sample that would not allow me to print was frustrating. I need to know if the product was worth the cost.
Cool PDF Reader will print the full page but not part of a page. I only needed the map to print. Still, the print was sufficient to make my evaluation. (Yes, I made a good purchase.)


I could only print a full page at a time. I could not size the page so the area I wanted to print could be printed as viewed.


It is different than Adobe. That is both good and sad in some ways. Over all, I liked Cool PDF Reader. I might like it more after some practice.
