With PDF files increasingly gaining popularity as the preferred medium for uploading content on the web, you can hardly avoid installing a PDF reader application in your system. Most of us tend to use the Adobe PDF reader software for viewing PDF files in spite of its several drawbacks. Besides consuming a huge amount of your system resources, the Adobe PDF reader tends to hang quite too often and can even lead to security issues due to vulnerabilities it seems to have. Thus we went ahead and evaluated the SimplePDF 2.2.1 application which is touted as the most compact PDF viewer tool that you can come across. It is an open source application that barely takes few MBs of your system space to install and is highly responsive.
The SimplePDF 2.2.1 on launch shows a neat light hued interface. Most options are self explanatory and even a novice user can get used to the application within minutes. The application can easily negotiate large PDF files and offers the most common functions that are present in the Adobe PDF reader. It can quickly load and show most PDF files faster than any other application and can even display Comic book or CBR format files. Besides PDF files, the application can effectively display ePub files along with XPS and CHM formats. In other words you can use this application as an eBook reader. If you are using an old Windows machine which is short on system resources then we highly recommend this application as the preferred reader for PDF files. It is also a great bet for tech savvy users who prefer to use open source software from a security standpoint and avoid zero day errors that are common with the Adobe Reader application.
After using the SimplePDF 2.2.1 application we can simply say that it is unparalleled in its class. Owing to its stellar performance, low file size and its capacity to display a host of formats, it earns a score of 4 rating stars.
