#6: EasyPDF Cloud

This converter is ranked #6 in our comparison of free PDF to Word converter tools (i.e. out of 16 converters, it is #6).

This converter is a re-branded version of ‘PDFOnline’ above almost in every way, except for the added ‘cloud’ functions. Specifically, it lets you create an account and store your files online (up to 25 megs of storage), it can connect to your Dropbox account and automatically convert any files you move to a specific folder, lets you program actions similar to web service IFTTT (e.g. if I add a file to this folder then do this and that), and has a nice drag and drop interface. It uses the same conversion engine as PDFOnline and has the same PROS and cons (excellent conversion, small upload file limit of 2 megs, no OCR).
