Adobe Acrobat Reader Review

Adobe Reader is an application that is used to create, edit, manipulate, sign, print, organize, and track PDF files. PDF (Portable Document Format) is the standard file format used to distribute and share documents across platforms. Before PDFs, compatibility issues made it difficult to share files with other platforms or software programs. The free Adobe Reader mobile app is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android mobile devices.

With the Adobe Reader mobile app, you can highlight text, add sticky notes, mark up documents, review documents, and collaborate with others in those documents - all from your phone or tablet.

It also connects to Adobe Document Cloud and other cloud storage systems like Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive. By simply clicking the “share” button, you can send items for review to all the people who need to see it, set a deadline for feedback, customize the accompanying message, and even set reminders for people to complete their reviews.

Adobe invented the PDF file format in the early 1990s to enable electronic documents to be sent to anyone regardless of the platform or software used to view and print documents. Later the company developed the Acrobat software that is used to edit and create PDFs.

While Adobe Reader is used to create PDF files, Adobe Reader is a free download at the Adobe website and is used to view and print PDF files on Windows and Mac computers. With Acrobat Reader DC, anyone can open a PDF to view or print it. It can also be used to sign PDF files digitally and for basic file collaboration.

Adobe Reader can open and interact with all types of PDF content including multimedia and forms, and it connects with Adobe Document Cloud so it can be used on computers and mobile devices.
