PDF24 is a free and easy PDF creation tool, aiming to simplify the PDF creating process to the point that it is as easy as printing a document. They achieve this by having the option to create a PDF show up in the standard print settings dialogue, where you can select it like you would any other printer.
PDF24 PDF Creator is not the only tool available for creating PDFs, with apps like Foxit Reader, and, of course, Adobe Acrobat Reader also offering the ability to read, create, and edit PDFs. But PDF24’s aim is more streamlined and focussed on the creation aspect alone.
Versatile and simple to use
While PDF24 PDF Creator does not have an editor to make PDF documents in, it arguably offers something more compelling by allowing you to use practically any application (that is, any application that can send documents for printing) to make your PDFs in. Once done, you select PDF24 as your “printer”, and click print as you would for any other document.
This functionality means users can stick with software they are familiar with, rather than having to learn a new piece of software to make their PDF documents in. Of course, this becomes a negative if you need to edit an existing PDF document, as you will need some software that has that functionality.
A solid tool for specific use-cases
For people who just need to create PDF documents, PDF24 PDF Creator can be a great application for doing so without having to learn a new piece of software. However, it can become a bit redundant for people who need to edit existing PDFs.
This is because you will need some software that lets you edit PDFs, and, in all likelihood, any software that allows the editing of a PDF document will also be able to create PDFs, meaning PDF24 PDF Creator would essentially become surplus to requirements in that situation. However, for creating PDFs, it is free, extremely easy to use, and reliable.
