Why No Editing?

I would really like the ability to do some simple pen markups such as notes, highlighting, and adding bookmarks. I don't think I need the full adobe program for such simple tools.

Excellent (But unstable with Windows 10)

I have had a very pleasant experience with this app. It is definitely a marked improvement over the default Reader app. Renders 300+PDF documents quickly and smoothly. The print and "go to" functionality greatly enhance the user experience. I use this App on a Surface Pro 2. Custom bookmarks would be good to have, especially since this functionality has been added on the Android version. UPDATE: It crashed unexpectedly more often then usual. Also, the bookmarks transition a little slowly at times. This is not as evident on my Surface Pro 2, but it is on my Dell Venue 8 Pro.

A decent application

It is a clean app which serves its purpose well. Quick loading and easy navigation and the cloud feature is nifty

Preview Pane

It works pretty good. However, it would be perfect if the app had Preview Pane. Sometimes the small PDF files only need a glance so being able to preview before actually open the file will make this app 5 star

The worst reader ever!

I regularly read large catalogue files that are 1000+ pages long. Changes pages with this reader is painful, taking minutes some times to render on an i7 in Windows 10. Horrible rendering performance. More time should have been spent testing and less time on trying to make a metro app. I want to go out and find version X or whatever it was.

So I can open a document and view it, and maybe highlight stuff. Should have same functionality as reader that you download from web.

Upgrade to Reader X Needed for Touch R/T?

This app has worked flawlessly until now only just recently - Now, absolutely NOTHING opens on my original Surface R/T - a flash page appears saying to update to "Reader-X", but Reader-X says it will not install on R/T! ...So now what?? "Upgrade" also does not seem to be available directly through the store either! - HELP!!!

Great app

Thanks! This is a great application for highlighting and underlining but it needs some fixes with the underlining. The underline is sometimes off and appears above or across the text instead of under it.

Unstable in Win10

It works well enough to read and comment in PDFs, but as other reviewers have noted the app is very unstable in Windows 10. I've been trying to mark up a 100 page PDF and I've had it crash half a dozen times, setting me back several pages. If all you're doing is reading then it's a minor annoyance. If you're making annotations then it's lost time and work.
