Adobe announced today that it has issued a major update to its free Adobe Reader iOS app, with some very handy new features. First up, the update makes eSignatures available to hundreds of millions of Adobe Reader users, bringing greater flexibility with it for signing, sending and managing important documents. Thanks to the integration between Adobe Reader and Adobe EchoSign eSignature service, the signature process can now have real-time visibility, giving end users the reassurance of knowing that their signed documents have been received. Here’s a list of the update’s major features, courtesy of Adobe:
