Ads unacceptable

The new version has an ad popup and bounce in your charmbar every 5 minutes. Completely not okay, even for a free app. This does not make me want to buy Premium.


iBooks can read pdf files too, and works much fast. It’s not bad idea to use alternative free software, but i’ts slow alternative.

Limitado e Caça níquel

Fica subindo a imagem de pedido de compra o tempo todo. Só pode fazer 30 anotações na versão free. Péssimo. Desinstalado.


I have used PDF Reader X for several years with great satisfaction. This has however dramatically changed recently - I absolutely see no point in reminding PDF Reader X users every 10 minutes or so through a very annnoying popup window and a bouncing dock icon to upgrade to the Pro version. If anything, this has prompted me to uninstall PDF Reader X and install an alternative PDF reader from a company that has higher standards for professional courtesy towards its customers.

Excellent But Annoying

At last - PDF Reader that is not as unbelievably slow as Adobe and has tabs (as opposed to the rest of the lot). Looks excellent on Retina. Upgraded from a version with "Find" keyboard shortcuts not working to a version with CONSTANT "upgrade" nagging. Became unbearable, switched to FoxIt Reader. Lowering the price wouldve convinced me to buy.

A côté de cet appli, les stratégies commerciales du télémarketing vous paraîtront raisonnées

Passez votre chemin Pop-up survenant toutes les 10 mns « proposant » l’achat, à la limite du harcèlement. Fonctionalités bridées sur Mac sans l’être sous Windows Malgré une app plus intuitive, légère, et complète qu’Aperçu, et moins envahissante qu’Adobe Reader Dommage !

Complete garbage

I’m fine to download a trial and be annoyed by how many times they ask you to upgrade while I’m trying to read a document, but it is another thing for this crap to crash within 15 minutes of installing. I was reading a book of ~300 pages a total size of 3 MB the it crashed. TOTALY NOT RECOMMENDED
