Portable Foxit Reader represents Foxit Reader specially built for the USB flash drives, with almost all features available on Foxit Reader for desktop.
Foxit Reader is extremely small, fast and easy-to-use. With the new version, you can walk to any computer and open a PDF file, without worrying about whether the huge Adobe Reader is installed. The PDF file itself can reside either on the computer or on the U3 drive. And Foxit Reader for U3 launches within seconds, so you don't have to wait for an annoying "Welcome" splash window to disappear. Then you can start enjoying the following functions for free:
￭ View or print PDF document
￭ Fill out PDF forms and save them
￭ View PDF as text
Foxit Reader for U3 itself is free. And the add-ons mentioned above are also free. However there is a non-free add-on called Pro Pack which unlocks functions to save annotation, save a PDF document as a text file, copy text from text viewer. Without Pro Pack, you are still able to annotate a PDF document and print it out.
However when you save the annotated document, it will be stamped with an evaluation mark on the top-right corner of the annotated pages. If you purchase a Pro Pack add-on, then there will be no evaluation mark. Furthermore, you only need to purchase one license for Pro Pack add-on, and then the license can be used either in Foxit Reader for U3 or in Foxit Reader for Windows.
Foxit Readerfor U3 stores add-ons in the U3 drive. Therefore, you only need to download the add-on once.
Foxit Reader for U3 doesn't support some features which are available on the desktop version, such as self upgrading, creator add-on and editor add-on.
