Read And Create PDF Files From 300 Plus Formats: Soda PDF 3D Reader
We have previously reviewed a number of PDF writers and readers such as Nitro PDF, PageFlip Free PDF to PowerPoint and PrimoPDF. While these applications provide good options for manipulating PDF documents, there are some other applications that offer even better functionality. Soda PDF 3D Reader is one such software. It is a PDF reader and creator that comes with a number of handy features. It not only supports PDF conversion from more than 300 formats, but also offers unique viewing options for PDF documents.
It comes with a 3D view for reading PDF files with a book like interface. Other than the standard interface, you can view pages in 3D format and flip them like a virtual book. Soda PDF 3D Reader is a multilingual application and during installation the user is given the option to select an interface language (English, French, Italian, Dutch and Spanish).
Like most PDF writers, you can create a PDF document from other applications (e.g. Microsoft PPT PowerPoint Templates) by using the Print option. Alternatively, you can use the Convert tab from the main interface (of Soda PDF Reader) for this functionality.
Soda PDF 3D Reader comes with numerous viewing modes which are accessible from the View tab. These include, Single View, 3D View, Facing and Facing Continous (split view) and Fullscreen mode. You can also capture specific parts of the document (Snapshot option) and adjust page size (Actual Size, Fit Page or Fit Width), from the View tab.
It is worth mentioning here that to use the free version, you will have to register with your email address within 7 days of installing Soda PDF 3D Reader. The paid versions include the Standard Edition ($49.95), Professional Edition ($79.95) and Professional+OCR Edition ($99.95). The Professional+OCR edition comes with Optical Character Recognition technology, which can help you create editable digital copies of your documents more easily. This technology enables users to accurately transform images or scanned files to editable text, which saves time in creating documents. Soda PDF 3D Reader is compatible with Windows based operating systems including the following.
- Windows XP
- Windows Vista
- Windows 7
