Traction Software's Rapid PDF Count is a simple tool that can save you time and frustration by showing you how many pages are in a PDF document with a click. It also counts words and characters, displays the number of files and the size of each, and more.

This efficient tool opens with a nag screen in the trial version. The main interface is small and sparse but cleanly laid out, with a file menu and a spreadsheet-like file display. You can drag the count headings to reposition them, an essential feature, we feel. The Setup menu calls up an Options dialog, but we chose the program's default settings. You can easily browse to your PDFs, but you can also drag and drop them right into the interface. Rapid PDF Count can also scan directories and subfolders for files, a major timesaver. We tried the scanner, selected a PDF product manual, and the program quickly listed counts in each category. The Help file includes an HTML file as well as a Web link for plenty of assistance.

Rapid PDF Count downloads as a ZIP file and is free to try with a five-file limit. It leaves folders behind when it's uninstalled. It doesn't need any third-party software to work, though Acrobat Reader is required to validate PDFs. It's ready for Vista and Windows 7. Rapid PDF Count is a highly specialized tool that can save time and effort in a business environment, but it's suitable for anyone who handles a lot of PDFs.
