Windows 7: Nitro PDF Reader released

24 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 10 Pro x64, Arch Linux
Nitro PDF Reader released

Create PDF files, comment and review, save PDF forms, extract text and images, type text directly onto the page, and more. Nitro's new free PDF reader takes the key features that you want in a PDF reader, a familiar interface, and smooth functionality and combines them into an eminently usable program that doesn't get in between you and your documents. Nitro has turned the free PDF alternative business model on its ear by providing you with a smart selection of watermark-free editing, drag-and-drop PDF creation, and tabbed PDF reading.

Windows 10 64 bit

I just downloaded it yesterday. Looks interesting and I'm going to give it a try. I'm been using Nuance PDF Reader that I got when they offered a free download a couple of months ago.

7 Ultimate x64

Thanks for the shout-out guys! Just stumbled across this and thought I'd drop a note from the guys at Nitro... Always great to hear some positive feedback and even better when it's from a switched-on forum like this one. What good is a PDF reader that can't create PDF files?!

Would love to hear what you think (good and bad!) of Nitro Reader and what we should be doing before it comes out of beta later this year... Post here, PM me, or join the masses over in our community forums -- offering a link would be violating the rules here, but finding it isn't exactly rocket science ;-)

Any other questions, just shout -- happy to help.

Got the update today
Beats Foxit and Adobe's Reader anyday!

@ Nick: I think the only thing needed to be worked on tis the interface. It takes far too much space, especially if I don't open PDFs maximized/full screen. I know i can hide it, but that's not exactly efficient if I'm actually working with PDFs instead of just reading.
Also, the ability to stretch the Search box.

Everything else is top notch

7 Ultimate x64

Thanks again Gornot... I think we can help you out! You've effectively got three options with the UI -- full, minimized ribbon, and full-screen.

You can minimize the ribbon, leaving just the basics, and then stick any features/functionality you use regularly in the Quick Access Toolbar. See the attached screengrab for some detail (and some fantastic evidence of why I'm not a designer!)

Hopefully that gives you a little more real estate without needing to hit F11. If so, we probably need to work on making that process a little more intuitive!

Edit: Try again, this time without the contents of my inbox ;-)

True, there is always that :)
If only I wasn't so lazy, lol
But the point being is that the UI's resemblance to the office suite is very welcoming to consumers to actually use such a feature, since many of them probably already did so with the Office apps; it makes things much easier to work in a familiar envorinment, that is another thing that made up my mind about using this awesome piece of freeware :)
