Likelihood to Recommend

Adobe Acrobat DC

People who are editing documents frequently, especially PDF documents, will really benefit from Adobe Acrobat DC. Also, people are creating simple graphics for distribution to their consumers will benefit from using Adobe Acrobat DC. People who are not frequently editing PDFs, or who do not need to edit PDFs at all will do fine with the free version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Evernote

Evernote is not the best for sharing content among team members in a timely fashion the way that many organizations do with email. Slack can be used for even faster results and a streamlined conversation.

Pros

  • Adobe Acrobat is designed to visualize, create and modify files in PDF format, it is very common to display text with an ordered visual design.
  • This tool can be presented in the main operating systems such as Linux, OS X Mac, Unix, Windows without modifying the appearance or structure of the original document and not losing the format with sending to other users

  • Syncing. Your notes and content update well across devices but will require internet connectivity.
  • Organization of notes via search, tagging, even location, time stamps, and folders is incredibly helpful.

Cons

  • Program size. By far, the main drawback is that my computer does not have enough processing capability to handle. It is VERY slow to install and often slow to open too.
  • Functionality. There are some types of commenting that the program does not handle as well (e.g., hand written comments that you want to try to put in with your mouse).
  • Licenses. You only get two licenses with each subscription, which can make it expensive to implement in a large scale format.

  • Formatting was a complaint of mine for a long time. It is not as robust as Microsoft Word, but it is improving.
  • The ability to do simple calculations. Say you have a list of ten items and want to sum the cost - that cannot be done in Evernote automatically.

Overall, Adobe Acrobat DC provides an easy user interface. The program can take some time to get used to, just like most programming you use, but once the software is understood it is very easy for users to use. Compared to many programs this is very easy for people to use.

Generally issues are by connectivity and not Evernote availability but I have had issues in the past with cross-client consistency of data which Evernote Support has ID'd as bugs that are still unresolved as far as I know

Performance

Overall, Adobe Acrobat DC performs at an acceptable rate. The software takes some time to load, but nothing that is unreasonable when launching a document. The program responds at a reasonable speed and performs well when operating tasks. It takes time for it to evaluate a document when you request to edit the document, but that is understandable considering it is identifying words and such in the document.

No major negatives on Evernote service. It's a user-friendly app and that provides high technology on digital note creation.

Alternatives Considered

I have tried using some online versions of .pdf readers and document extractors, but having the full desktop software is far less clunky and infinitely more secure.
Andrea Janda profile photo
Much more flexible and full-featured, although the latest version of notes has gotten much better. Evernote supports tags, multiple notebooks, and the sharing of notebooks.

Return on Investment

  • It's made it simpler to handle and merge multiple documents from colleagues and different sources
  • It's helped to translate our paper membership and donation forms to an online format
Andrea Janda profile photo
  • Positive: the software can be used on many platforms
  • Negative: the free version doesn't allow you to have password protection
  • Positive: they are clear innovators in the space
