After years of waiting, Adobe has finally released an iOS version of Adobe Reader that will let you view PDFs, encrypted files included. You can also print and share files, but you can’t edit the PDFs.
Maybe to make up for the long lost time of not being a part of Apple products, Adobe has decided to share the application for free.
Adobe Readeer is known as a standard, reliable PDF viewer around the world. The app will let you open files from email, Web or any other application that supports “Open In…”, as well as view PDF Portfolios and Packages. It will also allow you to use text annotations and access encrypted files, as it supports encryptions up to AES256.
Searching within the document will also be available of iOS users as well as using bookmarks. Scrolling can be set to single pages or continuous and the app will allow you to select and copy the text to the clipboard. The numerous tap zones included on the page let you jump back and forth between documents by tapping to the left and right edges in Single Page mode.
The launch of the Acrobat Reader for iPhones and iPads was set up for a couple of months, when Adobe released an app named CreatePDF, which allowed users to convert a series or documents into PDF files, while preserving the quality and accesibillity standards within the document.
The app can be found in the Apple store for free download for iPhone and iPad.
