Soda PDF Pro + OCR Editor's Review

Owing to its multi platform support and versatility, PDF format is used by billions of PC users worldwide. However, you may pick from quite a number of PDF viewer and creator apps nowadays. While Adobe’s Acrobat continues to be the reigning king in PDF software segment, there are a few capable alternatives too. Soda PDF Pro + OCR is one such example. It costs far less than Acrobat.

Soda PDF Pro + OCR can run on PCs with Windows XP and latter versions. It installs a printer driver in the PC, just like rival apps.

The app has a sleek and intuitive layout that will not scare away beginners. As is the case with other PDF apps, Soda PDF Pro + OCR lets you make a PDF document using various other file types easily. You can import several items at once, combine files and import data from scanner too. Supported file formats include Microsoft Office, BMP, PNG, plain-text file. However, lack of support for HTML and TIF is somewhat disappointing.

As far as PDF creation from various sources goes, Soda PDF Pro + OCR perform well. It does well in converting MS Office documents especially. The OCR component used by the app is good. It scores well in OCR compatibility.

 The app fares worse when it comes to converting to PDF from some formats. Converting Long and multi page PDF files can be tedious. The conversion can be slower in such cases and it may cause the app to hang too. It gets outshined by Adobe Acrobat perceptibly in this section.

Soda PDF Pro + OCR has a special 3D viewing mode. In this mode, documents appear like pages of books. It has lackluster form creation tools. Contrary to Acrobat it cannot scan documents and find form fields. While creating new form fields, the app does not let you copy and paste them. It also lacks the ability to let users embed live internet content. Lack of SharePoint integration will dishearten business users. The batch processing feature is a redeeming grace though.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, intuitive layout.
•    Decent file format support.
•    Batch conversion mode.
•    OCR works well.

Negative Points:
•    Lackluster form field support.
•    Suffers when converting PDF to other formats.
•    No SharePoint integration.

Conclusion:
Soda PDF Pro + OCR is an affordable PDF certain app with good OCR performance. In PDF conversion and features, it gives mixed performance. It scores well in user friendliness and conversion to PDF. However, converting from PDF to other formats is a different thing. The app scores poorly in converting multi page PDF files. It also has basic form field support. Overall, it gets outshined by Acrobat and few other contenders.

Rating: 2.5/5
