Foxit PhantomPDF Standard provides you with a full suite of PDF viewing, sharing, and editing features, designed to make working with PDFs as convenient as possible. With plenty of options and an intuitive interface, this program offers just about everything you want in a PDF editing program.
Lots of help: There are plenty of Video Tutorials that show you how to access various features. You can also make use of an Online Tutorial and User Manual to get a sense of how this program works. And there is Command Line Help available within the app as well.
Convenient interface: This app features a nice tabbed interface that provides access to the various tools you'll need as you create or edit PDFs. Even without tutorials, you can find most items quickly, and they're easy to access again whenever you need them.
Creation and conversion: In addition to editing PDFs, you can also create them through this program. That means you can make a completely new one from scratch, from multiple files, from a scanned document, or from the clipboard. And you can convert documents saved in other formats into PDF as well.
Trial registration: In order to use all of the features of the paid program during the trial period, you have to register with your full name, email address, company name, and phone number. Otherwise, you'll only be able to access the program's free features, which makes it hard to determine if you'd like to spend the money to purchase the full version.
Foxit PhantomPDF is a capable and convenient PDF creation and editing program that includes just about all of the features you'd hope to find. As long as you don't mind registering, you can try it out for free for 30 days, and the full purchase price is $106.80. It's a good choice for both experienced users and newcomers to this type of program.
