Free Friday! I'm going to go simple today.
I've always had a problem with PDFs and my phone. It always seems to involve stretching stuff around to make the print bigger and moving it all over the place to get it centered just right. Plus there's the horizontal thing, etc. I've been looking for a program to open PDFs in a reasonable manner for quite a while.
Yesterday my phone offered to open a PDF in Google PDF reader. I didn't specifically have the reader on my phone, but it comes with my Google Suite, so I figured "Eh, why not try it? It certainly can't hurt."
Wow. This is one of the reasons that Google gets into your life and stays there. It's the PDF reader I'll be using on my phone from now on. I love it. It's perfectly centered and the print is legible in horizontal mode. I was able to scroll through a list of command lines and enter the right text into another computer without having to mess with my phone screen at all.
Give it a try! It's free and there are no ads.
Free Friday is here!
PDFs. Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. Adobe has been the ruler in the land of PDFs for nearly as long as computers have existed, mostly because it distributed its PDF Reader with new computers.
Now Adobe no longer has downloadable software and pretty much only offers PDF software as a monthly subscription. I'm sure that we all wish them well. 😐
Thankfully, there's a new kid in town. Icecream Apps! They have made the perfect PDF app for Windows. Seriously. I hate PDFs (admittedly that was because of the bloated, klunky, unintuitive Adobe programs). But this program might change my mind about them. I sat down with it last night and was able to create and edit PDFs without breaking a sweat or reading an instruction manual.
Can you imagine what I could do if I read the directions?
There are tons of features without the bloat. There are too many to list here. The download and installation is a breeze straight from the site.
Uninstall Adobe and get Ice Cream PDF Editor now. Go on. You really should. And while you are there, check out their other apps. I'm pretty sure I need some of the others.
