It's very good the only thing about it is you can't copy and paste because the words will go off the documents also the little box you can type in be off so it makes the documents look odd
This program is awesome. Not only does it solve the problem of not being able to type on pdfs, you can also sign a form that is on your desktop computer on your phone. Amazing.
