Which PDF editor is the best?
It’s really important to differentiate what type of PDF editing we’re talking about here. Most commonly people refer to the following:I can annotate, comment, add text to PDFI can change the text inside the PDF, insert images or redact textMy colleague Pavel actually covered the difference between the two in details here. Having that said, let me share my personal opinion with you.Honestly, for a very long time I used and loved STDU viewer. It’s feature-rich, fast, free and most importantly supports a lot of different formats in addition to PDF .However, when I switched to Mac OS, I was disappointed to find out that STDU isn’t available there. Luckily for me, I started to work Readdle at that time and started to use PDF Expert. Instead of writing well polished marketing copy that you can find on the web-site, here is a list of features that define my PDF experience right now:Simple UI that allows me to focus on the document contentRich annotation features that are easy to useMultiple view modes for the same and different filesAND MOST IMPORTANTLY, actual PDF Editing tools which include:text removal/addition/changeimage insertionredact (very important if you work with some sensitive info)liking for pages and URLsimage to get your attention, but it actually shows how you can edit text in PDFE :)I can’t imagine my daily PDF experience without those tools anymore, and that’s why I recommend you try it as well. And we’re working on the major update for PDF Expert that is going to make the whole experience even better - we’ll keep you updated ,)
Can I edit PDF files with any of the native tools on Mac OS X?
The editing tools in Apple's Preview App have become increasingly powerful and competitive with Adobe's PDF tools on the Mac. Preview is able to annotate very well on the Mac and do almost all other edits within preview. There is no specific way to redact text in Preview on the Mac, but you can annotate a black bar over the text, then print and save as PDF, which will essentially redact it with no layers. It's free and easy to do.

There are lots of PDF readers in market. I personally prefer Adobe. But it does not allows editing or saving it to doc. For that purpose I prefer Nitro PDF.

Why is my mom paying $16/month to Adobe to be able to open her PDF files?
She shouldn’t be if all she wants to do is read them. Get the latest reader. There are some who say there are alternatives to Acrobat, but it depends on what you want to do. Acrobat Live Cycle forms, for instance, are difficult to handle with anything BUT AcrobatI understand Acrobat’s decision to go to a “monthly dues” kind of system. It makes money for them and, frankly, they are the standard, which means they can do what they want. Acrobat will tell you that it means you will always have the latest software, and never have to worry about falling behind again. They will also tell you that it is much easier to spend a few dollars a month than it is to shell out a few hundred all at once. You also have the ability to “sample” all of the on-line applications and properly react to “buyer’s remorse” by simply not continuing to pay for something that sounded good at the time, but that you find you aren’t going to use.PERSONALLY, I agree with you. All of these cloud-based software solutions are a rip off. When I buy software, I want to own a disk, I want to be able to install it, and I don’t want to have to buy it every month. Acrobat should be backwards compatible, meaning that basic functionality found in Acrobat 8 should still work in Acrobat 20. Anything written in version 8 should be able to be read by version 20, but not necessarily the reverse. Acrobat 20 should certainly have REALLY COOL STUFF that I want to upgrade for, but if it doesn’t have something I want, I should be able to continue to use Acrobat 8.I DO, however, accept the premise that Acrobat, and computer fiends, are a lot smarter between version 8 and version 20. A lot of security enhancements and product features will be included between those two versions, and it is right and proper for Acrobat to state that they will no longer actively support older versions. The fees, though, are a lot like paying to carry luggage on a plane. They have you where you don’t have much of a choice. Since you are “willing” to pay (i.e. you will continue to fly and you will continue to use PDFs because you really don’t have a choice), then the “market will bear” what they give us because WE don’t really matter.
