Though it’s nearly 25 years old, the PDF may be more useful than ever in our increasingly multi-device, cross-platform world. Much of the time you can get by with a free PDF reader to review and comment on these files. But inevitably, particularly in a business setting, you’ll need to edit a PDF file and that usually requires upgrading to a premium PDF editor.

Historically, Adobe Acrobat has been the best option, but it has also been the most expensive, often putting it out of reach of individuals and small businesses. That has given rise to a wealth of alternatives with varying features and costs forcing Adobe to lower their prices themselves. We looked at several top PDF editors to see what they offer and how they stack up against each other. These are out top 3 PDF editors.

Adobe Acrobat

Adobe Acrobat remains the industry standard for good reason. Its rich combination of creation, editing, reviewing, and security features are what the best alternative options are built on, but we feel Acrobat still does it best. Its recent interface redesign makes it much easier to navigate its robust toolset than the nested menus of yore, and its cloud subscription option puts its advanced features within reach of more individuals and small businesses.

Foxit

Foxit is a leading software provider of fast, affordable and secure PDF solutions. Businesses and consumers increase productivity by using Foxit’s cost effective products to securely work with PDF documents and forms. Foxit is the #1 pre-installed PDF software, shipped on one-third of all new Windows PCs, including those from HP®, Acer, and ASUS®.

Nitro

Nitro Productivity Suite is one of the top alternatives to Adobe Acrobat. This software is easy to set up and has numerous user-friendly features. Creating and converting PDFs with this editor is simple and quick, which is why the program has risen to worldwide popularity and today numbers over 700,000 users in the business industry alone.
