Works but annoying

The software works as advertised; far cheaper than Adobe products. But it is annoying. Continually asking for ratings and a bit quirky. Recommended for ability to convert pdf to jpg and does okay in converting to docx. I just hope this is the last time I asked to provide rating; or the stars will drop.

Developer Response ,

Easier than Adobe

I have not experienced any problems with this version of PDF Reader Pro. (IMac)

I too agree the constant plea for ratings is a tad annoying but nothing I can not live without. Would be nice if you could turn it off after reviewing the app.

Keep up the great work!

Developer Response ,

Colorful but plagued with problems

The marketing aspect is superb, but the performance is poor. The bells and whistles work some of the time, but not all the time. Converted documents are hard to store, editing is old-school and difficult, printing is haphazard at best, "imagemask" will ruin your work for no dicernable reason.
Net, net...this is not an improvement on the basics. The basics are: correct, improve, convert and send.
Two stars would be a generous rating.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review. The converted file will be saved to the assigned folder, if you can't find, please contact the customer support at

Besides, we are looking forward to hearing more kind suggestions from you. Feel free to tell us with your app version and the device. Thank yo very much!
