The #1 Adobe Acrobat Alternative

Foxit is faster, smarter, and rated higher than Adobe Acrobat.

pdf editor

Overview

The Foxit Advantage

Foxit is the #1 PDF alternative to Adobe for a good reason. Its PDF editor delivers premium, future-proof tools wrapped in a familiar, quickly adopted interface. Integrated eSignature decreases lag in workflows and provides signature tracking for efficient project management. Foxit offers the same functionality as Adobe Acrobat for less money and more flexibility.

The Foxit Advantage

Price Comparison

Adobe Acrobat costs up to three times more than Foxit. With so many similar functions and uses at a much lower price, it's easy to see why Foxit PDF Editor is the best Adobe Acrobat alternative. Foxit scales to meet your current and future needs since its robust PDF capabilities can be deployed to more users on the same budget. Foxit enterprise licenses provide discounts that increase with team size, so the more you grow, the more you save. On average, Foxit is 15-30% cheaper than Adobe and does not force buyers into a full creative suite.
