5 Adobe Acrobat Alternative


1. Nitro Pro 11 (Windows)


Nitro Pro 11 is another worthy alternative to Adobe Acrobat for Windows 10. It's become popular, largely due to its integrated cloud-based solutions. Nitro Pro 11, a product of Nitro PDF, is the paid version from Nitro that bundles different features for advanced users. It can be used to edit PDF files, perform document conversions, print, and add annotations to documents and share files via Nitro Cloud, a proprietary service from Nitro that connects users to the cloud.

As Adobe Acrobat alternatives go, Nitro Pro sits near the top of the heap.


  • Integrated cloud-based solution to share files with other users.
  • Simple and easy-to-use interface.


  • Sometimes the OCR tool doesn't work properly with larger documents.
  • Editing is not quite as simple as other programs like Microsoft Word.

2. PDFelement (Windows, Mac, iOS and Android)


PDFelement is a premium Adobe Acrobat alternative that offers multiple features in one simple platform. Apart from being multi-featured, PDFelement is also multiplatform, with support for Windows 10, macOS Sierra, and iOS platforms. The application comes with the usual set of functions that include PDF editing, viewing, and printing, and combines these with advanced functions such as PDF conversion, creation, and OCR for scanned documents. Forms and templates can also be accessed through this application.

it’s one of the more compelling Acrobat alternatives.


  • Simple, uncluttered inteface.
  • Advanced business features.
  • Cross-platform compatibility.


  • No OCR in standard version.

3. Foxit PhantomPDF


Foxit offers its high-performance alternative to Adobe Acrobate, PhantomPDF, as a Standard, Business, or Education version. The provider also offers a mobile app and cloud integration. With these tools you can easily edit, share, and comment on PDF documents from anywhere. Even the free Foxit Reader delivers some features beyond simple reading. In the image below you can see a selection of comment functions such as sticky notes, a callout box, and text highlighting. Secure the authenticity of the document with a digital signature.


  • Good usability
  • Large range of functions, even for free reader.
  • Selectable skin colour.
  • Accessibility tools.


  • Weak spots with JavaScript (safe reading mode should be turned on and JavaScript off)

4. Infix PDF Editor 7 (Windows and Mac)


Infix PDF Editor 7 is another worthy contender in the area of PDF editing. This application comes with an interesting user interface that is strikingly similar to Microsoft Word. It even works more like a Word processor in many ways, including modifying font, text, making scanned files searchable with OCR, and adding images within the application.


  • Embedded multi-language spell-checker.
  • Inserts a printing module in the printer dialogue when creating PDF.


  • Fixed watermark for filled forms on all PDF outputs.

5. Master PDF Editor (Windows, Mac, and Linux)


This is a simple but powerful PDF editing tool that lives up to most PDF editing expectations. Master PDF Editor is a capable PDF text, image, and page editor that also bundles PDF creation, XPS to PDF and PDF to image conversion, the addition of PDF controls, form validation, and other editing features on a single platform.


  • Simple and easy to use.
  • Supports digital signatures and encrypts files with 128-bit encryption.


  • Lack of advanced features.
