Quite often, whenever you wish to create or edit a PDF file, you need to acquire expensive applications in order to get great results. A solution comes from Soda PDF, a powerful program that provides you with a considerable amount of PDF utilities like an editor, encrypter, converter, etc. at a very reasonable price.

At first sight, you might find the application's interface a bit overwhelming due to its numerous buttons and functions but you can easily get used to it as I did. The toolbar presents you all the tools you need to configure the page's arrangement, write down sentences, include images or insert links into your PDF file.
To improve the security level of the resulted PDF documents, Soda PDF allows you to assign a protective password to the file, this way, preventing other users from accessing your PDF files.

A tool that, in my opinion, deserves more attention from the developers is the converter due to the fact that it works a bit too slow especially when processing larger files.

For a user that works with PDF files on a daily basis, my guess is that Soda PDF would fit perfectly considering the large variety of tools and quality results it offers.

Mark Mak Although SODA still has room for improvement (no one is perfect!), it is a very efficient tool to create and manage pdf files. It's fast, powerful, easy to use, and a way lot cheaper than similar Adobe product.
