The best think I like about Foxit PDF SDK is it is extremely light. I also really like their after sales support. The community is another great place to find solutions where people share their own experiences using the tool. You will find solution of almost every kind of problem you may encounter while using this great tool. Kudos to the developers and 5 star of course. In a rating of 1 to 10 while, I would definitely give 10 which means I am highly impressed with this product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

So far I have been very satisfied with this tool and can't remember anything particularly that I don't like. However, I will let the community know if in future I encounter any issues that I don't like. I am pretty sure that's difficult o happen though and I sincerely don't want this to happen.

There are still a couple of tasks we cannot perform with it. But I believe those have to do with the specialized software in place. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were on a new project and Adobe was not performing for what we needed. We discovered Foxit, tried it and went office-wide. I once told Adobe that one day someone else would join the game. Here they come. We use it for creating PDF files to serve as released document, place electronic signatures on them and even combine PDF files. They are also used to create red-line mark-ups.

What do you like best?

I never heard of Foxit until I switched jobs last year. In the past, I always used Adobe products, which is quite common in education. Our IT department prefers Foxit because it is more stable for users that open multiple pdf's at once (guilty) and it is much cheaper, since Adobe moved to its subscription/use model Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Because of my familiarity with Adobe and its products, sometimes I still find it difficult to find the exact button/tool that I am looking for, but they are all there, I just need a moment to find it Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Switch - must more cost efficient Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The pdf signer is so convenient, I may never need to print out another form to sign ever again. I fill all forms in electronically, then sign it and return it immediately - so convenient Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like that this program is easy to understand. I normally use Adobe Acrobat DC on my PC but, I am often on the PC's of other co-workers at my job.

What do you like best?

It works well with most PDFs, but it does have it's limits. It does not have nearly as many options for viewing certain image files like Adobe Acrobat or Apple Preivew does. It is free though, so that's definitely a plus if you're not looking to spend any money on a PDF reader. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It has its issues and glitches. While it is free, you do get what you pay for. It doesn't have nearly the support or capabilities as other PDF readers do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely would recommend other PDF readers over this one if you can afford it to pay for one. But it works well for basic PDFS and is free. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've used Foxit for reviewing PDFs for errors and using it for proofing. I've also printed from Foxit. I've realized that it's a good free option, but will likely stick with another PDF reader. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I honestly do not have any dislikes. It is better than Adobe reader. Adobe reader has too many versions of software.
