Ratings and Reviews
Its OK but...
Im no fan of Adobe, so I tried this alternative but its lacking in some basic features.
This does do basic virewing and printing of complete files acceptabley, But…
It wont let me print a custom list of pages like Adobe does, Like Print Pages 1,4,7, 12-20, 72. Instead I would have to print each of those pages or ranges, one at a time.
First, it starts off im Thumbnail mode all the time, cant seem to turn that off as a startup feature. Only developers need theumbnail mode, the rest of us just want to view pages in as full a screen real estate as possible. Also, the search feature is weird - it presents the hourglass for several seconds as you beging to type the first letter or letters of the search word, and it crashes ofetn after one or more searches. It doesnt highlight the search results on the viewable page, instead it opens a search results thumbnail list on the left of the scren even though search box is on the right and displayed page is in the middle.
Also, there should be a navigation pane that displays current page number and first and last page number that lets you quickly navigate to top, bottom or a specific page number.
Hi HomeDocNY, Thanks for your review. You can export select pages as a new PDF and print as one. Here is a tutorial https://support.kdanmobile.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000608514-How-to-Export-Selected-Pages-as-a-New-Separate-PDF.
Also, for the thumbnail mode as you referring to when it displays the list of files? If so there is a thumbnail and list icon in the bottom right-hand corner, just click the list icon to switch the viewing mode, if you are referring to something else, please kindly email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with more details and we'd be happy to assist you.
Basic version not as functional as Preview for me
I was looking for a way to more easily extract pages from a PDF than Preview, which seems like a pretty basic feature. So, I downloaded PDF Reader and tried it. On clicking the “extract” button, I immediately got a pop up window advertising the paid version. It didn’t even bother to say that the feature I was requesting was a premium one—just popped up an ad. At least for me, PDF Reader is not worth the trouble. I don’t mind paying a flat fee for an app, but I don’t do recurring fees, so the premium options are just not feasible for me.
Thank you for the feedback. The free version offers basic PDF features. If you are looking for a page editor you can upgrade the app or purchase PDF Reader Premium (one-time payment). If you would choose the Creativity 365 subscription plan it includes access to all Creativity 365 apps on iOS, Mac, Android, and Windows.
Best PDF Reader, but I still hate PDF
After being in web development since the mid-90s, I have always hated PDF. Adobe can make anything halfway decent much worse than one would expect (look at Coldfusion), and has destroyed the core idea: a readable, pixel-perfect doc, with forms, editing tools, data integration, and all the crap that makes people use it in ways for which there are better tools. All I want is to read a doc without the stupid free reader Adobe provides.
