Nitro PDF Software Salutes Adobe Systems on Day of Acrobat and Reader X Announcement

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 18, 2010) -  Nitro PDF Software, the company that permanently transformed the PDF landscape with its award-winning range of products, today acknowledged Adobe® and its significant contribution to the PDF industry on the day the company unveils the latest releases of Adobe Acrobat® and Adobe Reader.

"We wouldn't be here without Adobe's contribution to the space," said Nitro CEO, Sam Chandler. "Nitro got its start as part of the Adobe ecosystem -- developing plug-ins for Acrobat -- before we released the first version of Nitro Pro in 2005, our vision for how desktop PDF software should be. It wouldn't have been possible had Adobe not published the PDF specification, encouraging competition in a way few companies do. We're proud to have brought our own vision to this segment, most recently with Nitro Reader, a free product with the key tools and features we believe everyday users need to start doing more with PDF files."

Nitro PDF Reader delivers a feature set still not available in Adobe Reader or any other free solution, empowering users with unlimited PDF creation and the ability to type text or stamp a handwritten signature directly onto the page. Nitro Reader also includes unrestricted file saving (including PDF forms,) and enhanced collaboration functionality, allowing users to not only add comments and sticky notes, but also highlight, cross-out, and underline text. Its unique and powerful functionality earned a corresponding list of awards, including the coveted CNET®™ Editors' Choice.

Utilizing the Microsoft® Office™-style ribbon interface, Nitro Reader is instantly familiar for business users, and 100% compatible with other common PDF solutions. Nitro's range of PDF products extends to the world's first true competitor to Adobe Acrobat, Nitro PDF Professional, and the world's most popular free PDF creator, PrimoPDF, downloaded more than 20 million times.

Nitro PDF Reader is free and available for download immediately:
