Powerful and Feature-rich PDF Reader

One of the greatest things about the PDF file format is that it can't be edited easily, making it a good format for files that have to be shared across devices. That said, being able to comment or make small adjustments to the file can be incredibly useful. Foxit Reader is a PDF reader that also comes with editing and commenting tools that allow users to modify the certain contents of the PDF.


System Requirements

Foxit Reader is supported in Windows, Mac, Linux, and Citrix. Mac users will need macOS version 10.12 or later to get Foxit Reader to work. The app requires at least 512 MB of RAM and 1 GB of storage space. It also needs a 1.3 GHz or faster processor as well as a screen resolution of at least 1024x768 pixels.


Foxit Reader uses the ribbon-style toolbar popularized by Microsoft Office which is appropriate considering how feature-rich Foxit Reader is. Commands are grouped into categories so users will be able to find buttons easier. The toolbar is also customizable, so users can modify the interface according to their needs and preferences.
The app also has a tab feature which means you can open and edit multiple documents at the same time. There is no need to open several windows. Foxit Reader can accommodate all the documents simultaneously through tabs.

PDF Viewer

As a PDF viewer, Foxit Reader has many annotation features that people can use to comment on their documents for their own purposes or can be shared with other people. The Add Comment command creates a little digital sticky-note anywhere on the document. Users can add notes to it, and even modify the look of the comment box by changing its color and size. Additionally, users can add bookmarks, images, and other visual objects to the document to serve as annotations.
Foxit Reader also has a very useful Add Stamp command. This tool offers dozens of pre-made stamps like Approved or Rejected one which can be used to quickly mark documents.

PDF Creator

Usually, you have to use a different app to create PDF files, but with Foxit Reader, you can create PDFs directly from the app. Users can choose to create a PDF file from scratch or build on existing PDF files. Users can also sign their PDF files for added security.
Documents can be shared across different social media as long as the users link their accounts to their Foxit Reader account. In addition, downloading PhantomPDF is necessary for users who want to link their Evernote or Onenote accounts to Foxit Reader. Finally, Foxit Software also offers the ConnectedPDF service which grants users more control over who can access your files when shared.

A Powerful PDF Tool

When it comes to anything PDF-related, there are few apps that can really contend with Foxit Reader. With its efficient interface that comes with multiple tab views, as well as powerful annotation tools for commenting on documents, Foxit Reader goes above and beyond what any most PDF readers in the market offer. Combine these assets with the built-in PDF Creator feature and you won't even need any other tool for your PDFs.
