Can't save after making notes with pen

Used to be really useful for taking notes, now it is useless to me because I get an error every time I try to save a document after writing on it.

Needs TTS but very good app

App has improved since I last wrote review but now with Windows 10 the icon is not showing up on my PDFs when I have it set as my default app. (just uninstalled and reinstalled and the icon's are showing up.) I use "Share to Speech" for most of my Text to speech needs. Would love it if you could save password protected PDF's but it looks like I will have to buy another program for that. I use a Surface Pro 3 and this app has grown on me. I prefer it over the desktop version Adobe Acrobat. It would get 5 stars if it had a "Text to Speech" or "Read Selected Text" option similar to the iPad. Not having the Speak Selected Text option as a standard option in Window 8.1 is a big downside. The Narrator is terrible. Microsoft could learn something from the developers of the apples "Voice Over" option in iOS. All that said, I like this app and would recommend it to anyone who does not want/need TTS.

Needs just a few changes and it would be great

This is a great pdf reader, but it's missing two main features that are forcing me to use Adobe Reader instead. The first problem is that you can't set the app to open new pdfs in a new window. Each pdf you open is opened in the same window. I often need to have multiple pdfs open side by side and it is a pain to do this with the app. The second problem is that you can't open a new window of the same pdf. Often I need to have two windows of the same pdf open so that I can compare two different parts of the pdf. This isn't possible with the app as far as I can tell. Also, it would be nice if there was an option to set the zoom to equal the page width (like in word).

Great app

It's definitely a simple and easy-to-use app with a nice UI. It would be better if this app could be updated to match the Windows 10 UI, but don't remove the full-screen button!

Good app but it needs more features

-please add more viewing options. -please add more features (snapshot, inking, etc...). -app performance can be a little better (caching of large PDFs).

Needs work on 2 things

1) when you write on documents with the digital pen, the words scribbled always move up, so you don't know where your writing is going to end up. There is no precision. This problem does not happen in other programs, like OneNote for example. 2) I've been using this a lot for school, math specifically. I use this app to look at my textbooks. It would be very helpful if you were able to copy and paste the images and texts. Other that, its an awesome app, simple and easy to use. P.S. creating bookmarks should also be integrated into the app. Right now you can only view them, not create them.

Great app easy to use

I love this app and use 99% of the time over Adobe Reader - much easier to navigate on tablets. I still use Adobe Reader for some work, especially editing, but I use this app every other time.

Solid

Can only open 5 PDFs at a time but overall very responsive, nice UI, basic annotation features make it a good choice for basic reading of PDFs. Not sure why the reviews are so bad.

The basics are good but

Perhaps a little too basic today. This app should really be updated for Windows 10, in particular add the ability to print in the mobile version. If it's not already a universal app for 10 it should migrate this way.

Clean and Useful

This app works fine for what it's supposed to be, a reader. It's easy to use and handy (especially in win10) because of it's lack of functions and clean interface.
