It's not something like completely dramatic, but I've definitely been getting more things done with this tool, so i must admit it helps you focus!"

      "There's no doubt most folks consider Adobe Acrobat Reader the standard for pdf readers on PCs. Of course it's also the number one target for hackers. But even there we find competition. As for Android, Adobe is a little out of their depth, and yet they're still certainly one of the best in my view. I really don't need many bells and whistles on either platform, so a more minimal, less well known program may serve me just as well, and make me less of a target."

      "This came standard on my recently purchased phone. The function to work offline is nice, and there are some nice features - but there are also cons to consider. For instance, this isn't compatible with Open Office, which is what I mainly use on my PC. There are also ads, which of course, no one enjoys. Plus, after a recent update, it's been a bit laggy and my phone's security software has identified this as potential malware. Not worth it, in my opinion. Stick to Google Docs or the Microsoft Word app instead, both tried and tested."

I am going to continue using this for a long time to come."
