Part 1. Overview of DocFly

DocFly is an effective online PDF form filler. It has a website where you can directly upload your PDF and start filling out your forms. This makes the entire experience for the user convenient with only a few clicks.

Let's put DocFly to the test and see how it works. Firstly, I am amazed but how easy and convenient the entire process is. Simply upload the PDF document and it will take you to the online editor and you can start filling out the form immediately.

I can add the necessary fields if required have the progress saved with a click of a button and have it ready for download. For an ideal form filler, DocFly has all the essential tools to fill out and edit PDF forms.

But I noticed one major flaw besides the free downloads available. I uploaded a filled form and noticed I had to manually remove data and this wasted a lot of time doing this for a pretty long form.

To save time, UPDF can instantly clear all the form data with just one click. Moreover, you have unlimited downloads and sharing of your PDF form with others in its free version.

UPDF is Used More Than Filling Out PDF Forms…
