      Clean, simple, and does a good job with the main features I need from Acrobat DC Pro ... placing digital and image signatures on documents.

      The interface is simple, fast, no bloatware other than the software itself compared to Adobe whose bloatware makes me want to destroy the computer.

      PDF Reader vs Adobe Acrobat DC opinions
      Some users think PDF Reader is a great alternative to Adobe Acrobat DC, some don't.
      Adobe Acrobat DC is a full featured PDF editor. PDF Reader has a nice featureset for a PDF ... Reader, but is far from a complete PDF Editor.

      PDF Reader is a PDF Reader, not a PDF Editor. It even says it in the name.
