PDF-XChange PDF Viewer

PDF-XChange PDF Viewer 2.5

It's a powerful PDF viewing application with a lot of features and options

We can all agree that the most appreciated applications are not only free, but free and packed with a lot of cool features and handy functions. PDF-XChange PDF Viewer is such an example. Though it’s a free PDF viewer, it comes with a lot of additional options and features that it will surely please a lot of users. Furthermore, it doesn’t only offer view-related options and functions, like zooming the pages, adding bookmarks, choosing different view modes, using handy navigation tools, and so on, but it also offers powerful editing and management features: you can add comments and annotations, apply stamps, extract text and pages from the PDF documents and export them to image files, add security options to the files, and many other more. It will take a lot of space to describe all the features of PDF-XChange PDF Viewer, but what you need to know is basically that it truly offers a lot of stuff while still being free.

Though it’s comprehensive, it’s also easy-to-use. Its interface is neat, well-structured and intuitive, so even complete beginners will be able to use this tool without any problem.

To sum it all up, even though the developer didn’t put much effort into the presentation of this product, preferring to use it as a mean of introducing their non-free, more complex PDF editing tools, PDF-XChange PDF Viewer is still a great tool on its own. It indeed lacks many PDF editing options, but for a free PDF viewer, it also offers a lot.
