A wide range of tools on a website that is more attractive than peers

An attractive website that offers simple PDF tools I need to do my work.

Pros

I love the wide variety of PDF tools the website offers, including conversions, cropping, merging, and splitting. I have used many different peer websites and think that Small pdf has the most attractive-looking website.

Cons

I think that the paid version is more expensive than peers. I wish more free tool uses were allowed before switching to the paid version.

Reasons for Switching to Smallpdf

Smallpdf had a more attractive website and the PDF tools seemed easier to use.

SUCH a great, inexpensive investment that is worth every penny

We first needed a program that would convert a PDF to a Word document, and Adobe Acrobat was OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive. I started looking into other options, and stumbled upon SmallPDF. We soon decided to purchase the PRO version because I ended up using it for so many things that it was worth it for us to make the small investment to go PRO. Now we use to combine multiple Word documents into one, huge PDF, to sign documents electronically, to ask others to sign a document electronically, to compress PDFs, to edit them, to add text to them, etc. It is simply a handy tool for anyone who works with PDFs, which I'm guessing is the majority of businesses and organizations. I couldn't recommend this product more.

Pros

There is so much I love about this software. It's so easy to use. It is laid out so simply, anyone can figure it out. Every time I have a problem with a PDF, I look to see if SmallPDF has a solution to it, and 9 times out of 10, they do. The purchase price is so small, and just worth every penny. The online signatures work great. It downloads documents quickly. It works GREAT at compressing PDFs. It even has the ability to unlock PDFs, lock them, and convert JPGs. It is such a useful tool. There is also a lot you can do with the free version, which I really appreciate.

Cons

I can't thin of a single thing. I truly appreciate this software and all of its capabilities. It has a solution for most of the problems that I have with PDFs, and I can't even think of the very rare times where it didn't offer a solution to my problem.

Reasons for Switching to Smallpdf

Adobe Acrobat was SO expensive, and we could only have it on one computer, or we'd have to pay for more licenses. It just wasn't worth it, and SmallPDF offered a much better solution at a much more inexpensive price.

One of the best tools around, highly recommned

The benefits of this tool is that my overall productivity has been increased by the fact that I can use this tool very quickly and effectively to convert CVs from PDF to Word to allow me to edit them. It's so easy to use that the rest of my team also use this tool on a daily basis

Pros

The pricing of this software makes it incredibly attractive. The low cost means that we can have unlimited usage of something that me and my team use every single day is highly critical to our work

Cons

There is not much to like apart from the fact that some documents are sometimes not recognised by the software tool but this happens very infrequently and has little no impact on my job

Reasons for Choosing Smallpdf

Mainly the pricing and ease of usage. The tool is very quick to convert files and the incredibly low cost made it so attractive that we just decided to go with this one instead. We were considering multiple other tools.

Great PDF editor for professionals

I am using SmallPDF in my daily work and it helps me to do it much faster than with other tools.

Pros

Small PDF is constantly evolving and adding new features. I work with many documents and SmallPDF is the most used app for PDF compression, merging and splitting.

Cons

The desktop app have many features of the web app, but not all of them. Would love to see them all in the desktop app.

Reasons for Switching to Smallpdf

FineReader is great, but more expensive and slower. SmallPDF does not have all the features of FineReader, but is constantly developed and new features are added.
