Editors' review

PDF documents have become the format of choice for distributing formatted documents around the Web. For that reason alone, it's good to have some choice in how to read or edit them. EXPert PDF Reader provides much the same PDF-reading capability as Adobe's own software, along with some ability to annotate files and modify document outlines. The interface is fairly easy to use, although we would like to see more screen space given to the actual document itself. We found the program fairly slow when handling large PDF documents, a definite drawback. Printing documents was not a problem, but the text-search function did not work in our tests. On the whole, we see little reason to switch from other free PDF readers to this one.

    "Works great, ignore bad reviews"

    July 26, 2014   |   By jchooper

    Version: Free expert PDF Reader 9.0.180

    Pros

    Totally free, and does the job

    Cons

    none that I see so far

    Summary

    It blows my mind that people are rating this program poorly because it auto installs other programs. People, read the prompts as you are installing it instead of just pushing "accept" through all the windows. Step 2 onwards in the install process is asking you if you want to install these other programs. Simply deny, and you will only end up with the PDF editor. Don't rate the program poorly just because you can't follow directions

    "NOOO!!!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!!!!"

    October 25, 2013   |   By charlesjacobbird

    Version: Free expert PDF Reader 9.0.180

    Pros

    Barely edits pdfs

    Cons

    AUTO INSTALLS AT LEAST 6 OTHER PROGRAMS!!!!! These programs are not considered viruses or malware by major virus/malware software!! They range from the normal fake PC cleaners to fake PC back-ups and TONS! I mean TONS! of browser apps, extensions and anything like it. Auto downloaded and installed who knows what every few seconds I had any browser open. It even prevented me from rating it on cnet until I removed everything.

    Summary

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!! SAVE YOURSELF!
    Editors clearly LIED and have not installed the program because there is no mention of it auto installing 2 other programs initially and downloading and installing more later when a browser opens.
    F CNet!!!
    I used to trust this site!

    September 07, 2013   |   By mars1565

    Pros

    Did not edit the pdf file.

    Cons

    INSTALLS SEVERAL INVASIVE PROGRAMS. I UNINSTALLED THEM ALL (I THINK), but it still has control over my Firefox homepage. I will have to reinstall Firefox to get rid of it.

    Summary

    DO NOT USE THIS SOFTWARE!!!!!
