There are plenty of free PDF readers available for download including the ubiquitous Adobe Reader from the company that created PDFs in 1993. But Nitro PDF, which publishes the $99.99 Nitro Professional PDF creation tool, is now offering a free PDF reader. Features include include the ability to write comments that can be read by any other PDF reader. Users can also enter text in a static PDF document and insert a graphic, such as a scanned signature. The reader can also be used to create PDFs, though it lacks many of the advanced features available in the professional version.
To explain how the products works, I spoke with the company's chief product officer, Lonn Lorenz.
