If you are tired of reading your PDF documents in the traditional boring way, you will surely be interested in an application such as Soda PDF 3D Reader. This tool introduces a 3D page-flip effect that allows you to read any PDF document or book just as if you were flipping the pages of a real book. Besides, the program includes other helpful features, like PDF creation, PDF form filling, and PDF printing.
The program's installation process may be a bit confusing for many users. It tries to install third-party tools (such as the AVG toolbar) and asks you also to enter your name and e-mail address to send you a free activation key. However, you can skip all these steps and still get a fully functional program. As for the activation key, you can postpone the program's registration for 7 days when asked to enter the key.
Soda PDF 3D Reader offers an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, though it is quite uncolored and not very attractive. It includes several tabs that allow you to access the different functions offered by the program, like PDF reading, creation, review, and form filling. In the "View" tab, you can open any PDF file and start reading it while enjoying the amusing page-flip effect. However, you can also set the program to show the pages of the PDF file in single, continuous, facing, and facing-continuous modes.
Soda PDF 3D Reader also introduces a number of extra features and functions that turn it into a very comprehensive PDF Reader. For example, the program allows you to manage bookmarks, signatures, links, layers, attachments, and comments lists. Besides, it keeps a list of recently-opened documents, so that you can access any of them with just a simple click. As stated before, this tool can also be used to fill PDF forms and to create PDF files from MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
To sum up, Soda PDF 3D Reader is a comprehensive PDF Reader that includes many helpful features and which allows you to perform many additional tasks. Unfortunately, to use some of those features, you will need to wait for the free key to arrive and register the program.
