PDF is one of my favorite document format. I like its page layout and the functionalities it includes. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has already featured a list of some awesome tools for teachers to annotate and customize their PDF documents and today we are adding another list that includes three of the best PDF readers out there.
Most browsers have built-in PDF readers that lets you read PDFs without having to install any software, but the thing with such built-in readers is that they are limited in the services they provide. They most of the time let you only read a PDF without being able to annotate it.
The tools included below are different in that they allow users to carry on a wide range of actions on their PDFs. Check them out.
1- Sumatra PDF
This is a really useful PDF reader. It has a user friendly interface and is available for the mobile versions as well. What is good about this reader is that it loads pretty fast and is compatible with other file formats such as eBooks in ePub,comic books in CBZ and CBR formats and Mobi format.
2- Foxit Reader
This is one of the most popular alternatives to Adobe Reader. Foxit allows you to add annotations, highlights, and many other PDF-editing services.
3- Nitro PDF Reader
Nitro has some distinctive features that set it out from the crowd. You can for instance use its
QuickSign feature to apply your digital signature to your PDF documents, convert PDF files to text, and even extract images from files.
