Adobe Acrobat Reader review
Adobe Acrobat Reader is a free application allowing to view PDF files, sign the documents in this format, and comment on them on your mobile device. You can find similar default options on your smartphone, but usually, they are not that good, that is why we recommend to install this app for free and benefit from its functionality. The application allows to load up a PDF file easily. You get access to the content one or several pages in size. It is easy to flip through pages. Or you can use the table of contents and jump exactly to that page you are interested in. In order to do it, just make a bookmark.
The app suggests five viewing modes, which allow reading the content as you think convenient for you. If you choose a landscape mode, you can format a document to the page width. This variant is useful when you try to read various books, where pages are divided into several columns, as a result, you have such a tiny font that it is impossible to read it without zooming in each phrase.
What else in addition to viewing PDF document can you do within this app? You are allowed to apply various modes like Choose Single Page or Continuous scroll. There are sticky notes and other drawing tools which are used to leave your comments on a document. You can highlight the important moments. It is possible to team up working at the document shared for viewing or for signature. There is the comments list where you can find the annotations and respond to them. Add your thoughts, get notifications with requirements as to those documents, and more.
It is so easy to work with scanned PDFs which are captured with another free application Adobe Scan. Just open them in Acrobat Reader and do whatever you need: review, sign, or send. You can save these files and print them if your device is connected to a printer. There are a lot of available storage providers like Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and others.
The app is free, but you are suggested in-app purchases enhancing your experience. For instance, Acrobat PRO DC, which allows creating PDF files from images and any documents as well as export PDFs to PowerPoint, Excel, Microsoft Word. You can turn several files into one PDF with its help. Another package - Export PDF - allows exporting PDFs to RTF, Microsoft Excel, Word, or PowerPoint.
This is really a good mobile PDF reader, which we recommend strongly. Here you will not have to choose between convenience and usability – both are powerful. Adobe Acrobat Reader is an old solution which is still the best one on the market. It can take you some time to upload it, and if you apply a search, you will also wait for a quite long time. Still, it is very reliable and provides you with the result you expect. Being the best-known PDF viewer and editor Adobe Acrobat Reader allows you to annotate and sign scanned papers, make a single file from multiple scans, and share the files directly on cloud services.
- Useful in-app purchases;
- Rich functionality;
- Easy to use.
- Comparatively low speed of uploading.
