Pros

  • You can create PDFs from various types of files.
  • Provides you with multiple editing options.
  • Lets you read PDFs in fullscreen mode.
  • Allows you to annotate PDFs, add signatures, video, audio files, etc

Cons

  • Overwhelming interface

Foxit Reader is more than just a program for opening and viewing PDF documents on your PC. This application also provides you with a quick way to create, edit, convert, and print your PDF documents with just a few clicks.

Even though its main window might seem overwhelming at first due to a large amount of buttons and panels, you can easily customize the appearance of the interface by removing the elements you don't need.

The application supports a wide range of input formats. You can create PDFs by using images, XLS or TXT documents, DOCs, and many others. Foxit Reader gives you access to plenty of useful editing options and help you get the quality output files you need within moments.

Another great thing about this utility is the fact that it allows you to attach various types of files to your PDFs, such as videos, audios, images, etc. Once you finish editing your document, you can attach a personal signature and share it via email directly from the program's interface. You can also print the PDFs with just a few clicks.

All in all, Foxit Reader proves to be a reliable solution for people who work with PDF documents on a daily basis. It provides you with countless features, works perfectly, and is free of charge. But if you're looking for an intuitive PDF reader with basic functions, I'd suggest you to try a different tool.

Илья Пацев Great software, and I loved it, but they changed the GUI and it is a major change. This made the experience worse for me personally. The way that highlighting worked before (ver 6) was perfect, and it was the most important single feature I use for my schoolwork. With version 7.1.5.425 I just want to roll back to version 6, or find alternative suite.

Md. Sayem Shahriar While there is slow performance reading a document in Adobe Reader, this one I found useful.
