Adobe Reader is a free document management application for Windows. Created by Adobe—one of the leading names in productivity software — the app allows its users to view and edit PDF files. It also comes with tools to comment and sign your documents.
Adobe Reader is a stripped version of the popular Adobe Reader DC. With this, you can get the essential tools, but without the unnecessary bloat that the latter is known for. Since it trims down the extensive set of features, it will also be light on the resources. However, expect that some functions will not be available.
Adobe Reader DC is one of the software that many users download after installing a fresh copy of Windows. This app has been known to help open PDF files. However, over time, it has made a reputation for being resource-demanding and lags. It is for this reason that some users look for alternative PDF readers. One of these is Adobe Reader. As the name suggests, it is the edition of the well-known PDF program.
As mentioned, the app trims down the set of features from Adobe Reader DC to provide users only with the essential tools. Among those is the annotating feature. With it, you can insert comments onto the documents. By adding feedback to specific parts of the file, readers can see which areas they should focus on and what to do. Another tool that you can use is the highlighter. Similar to annotations, this function highlights important lines, paragraphs, or terms in your file.
Users would also be happy to know that the lite version retained the Fill and Sign tool. With it, you will still be able to draw your signature on the document. Note, however, that the document creator will still be in charge of creating the signature field. You can still draw over the page, however, even if the program lacks optimized form fields.
