Ridiculously overpriced

about Adobe Acrobat DC · ·

I just saw the current pricing for Acrobat DC, and I'm not even sure if Adobe are just pulling our legs at this point. They're asking $30/mt. for the full package. Given the generally abysmal quality of the software, that might be somewhat justifiable for a lifetime license. But a monthly recurring fee? They have to be kidding. Acrobat is outclassed and outperformed by pretty much every third-party offering out there, and I don't think any of them exceed $200 for a one-time payment (excluding major upgrades, of course). You'll have spent more than that on Acrobat after half a year, and in return you'll get to deal with the many bugs, poor rendering performance, faulty printing integration, and Adobe's ironic inability to properly support their own document format. The number of PDF compatibility issues I see whenever I use Acrobat DC at work, is very amazing compared to the relative robustness of third-party tools.

Great as always

about Adobe Acrobat DC · ·

Acrobat has always towered above all rival PDF software, and the latest version is the best upgrade in years (custom essay writing service).
Adobe Document Cloud, its apps and applications look like a very good start, but you may want to wait a bit before jumping in with anything other than Fill & Sign.
Pros:
Efficient new interface. Major improvements in OCR and text-editing. Document Cloud service includes built-in PDF signing and routing. Mobile Acrobat DC apps convert photos into PDF forms.

Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended impressed me today with how small a PDF file it makes. Tweeked the settings carefully and got an A4 page B/W 300dpi - 20Kb. Other PDF software was gobbling up disk space, especially the free stuff that came with the Lexmark printer.
