Nitro PDF Reader


The interface of Nitro PDF Reader is a nice change when compared to the interfaces of other similar programs. This tool does not bet on a large number of icons and buttons spread in a large toolbar – instead it groups all of them under three colorful and nice to look at tabs. The File tab offers basic functionality that includes opening and closing the PDF file, while the Home tab houses basic functions such as zoom along with extended functionality such as signing the PDF file, conversion and adding text. The Advanced tab keeps some of the most important functions of the Home button but adds management of digital IDs. The Help tab includes an integrated user guide, access to a knowledge base and support tools. No matter where you are though you will see the icon of the Pro version of this software. It offers more functionality but at a cost.
