Nitro Pro is a piece of software designed to help users view, combine, edit, or create PDFs. The market has responded to the extreme saturation of the digital world with PDFs that act as universal digital documents by releasing hundreds of apps that can work with PDFs to various degrees. With so many options on the market, and with all of them claiming to be the only solution to your PDF problems, it can be difficult to decide which app is the way to go. Of course, those apps want you to think you have no other option, but the truth is that no single PDF app is ideally suitable for printing, editing, converting, or raw creation.

However, for those who want to find a PDF software suite that is as good as it gets, Nitro Pro is an excellent option. The app is fully comprehensive, and it includes a number of advanced tools that you won't find in hardly any other professional PDF software. The developers of Nitro Pro claim their software can stand up to Adobe Acrobat, which is the industry benchmark for PDF software. While Acrobat still has a noticeable edge, Nitro Pro is an adequately viable alternative.

There isn't much that Nitro Pro can't do when it comes to PDFs. You can use the software to convert Excel, Word, HTML, and other file formats into PDFs. The advanced tools for reviewing the PDF content will ensure everything looks optimal, and you can even use the software to create PDF documents from other content. There are integrated security tools to protect your system, and the text recognition technology makes editing much simpler.

In several ways, Nitro Pro could be said to be ahead Adobe Acrobat. Nitro Pro is arguably easier to use and more aesthetically pleasing than Acrobat thanks to the Ribbon-style interface that was inspired by Office 2007. While many people initially disliked this style of user interface, it didn't take long for the style to become the norm. That UI style is now so popular that other software developers are looking to integrate similar systems, like the one found in Nitro Pro.

Nitro Pro also offers a more streamlined set of functions than Adobe. It might not have as many settings and options that can be altered, but most users would call that a good thing since Acrobat is filled with advanced options many normal users would never require. Nitro Pro is much more suitable for those who only need the occasional edited PDF.

Users who are wary of the seeming complexity of Nitro Pro can rest assured that the software contains a number of comprehensive help features. These tutorials and hints make it easy for you to take full advantage of the software and all the functions and features it has hiding within.
