Everybody knows about the Apple-Adobe relationship, it’s not one of those joyous relationships that one would like to be in. Apple doesn’t really like Adobe for the fact that their Flash Players are very vulnerable to malwares and attacks of that sort. That didn’t, however, stop Adobe from tailoring some nice looking apps for Apple’s iOS devices.
We already have the Adobe Photoshop Express and the Photoshop Touch Apps for iPhone and iPad respectively, and now they’ve also included the much needed Adobe PDF Reader. Yes, that’s right. Adobe released their very useful and famous PDF Reader application for iOS, that can open e-books, portfolios, encrypted pdf files and is also free. This is not the first PDF related app that Adobe has released for iOS devices, prior to this they had also released a CreatePDF app that can create PDF files from regular documents.
Adobe Reader is the free global standard for reliably viewing and sharing PDF documents across platfoms and devices. Easily and efficiently access the widest range of PDF file types—including PDF Portfolios, password-protected PDF documents and Adobe LiveCycle rights-managed PDF files. Now available for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, Adobe Reader offers fast, high-quality interaction with PDF.
The Adobe Reader app on the iPhone works perfectly. Once you fire it up, it’ll quickly take you through a Getting Started pdf file, which tells you how to use the app. There’s a scroll bar on the bottom, that acts as a way to skim through pages, you can pinch-to-zoom, select and copy text, choose between continues, single page and automatic views and search for text in the pdf.
So, how do you add files to Adobe Reader? Well, whenever you come across any file on your iOS device that has the ‘Open in’ option, it’ll automatically be added to the reader. That’s it. We’ve also wrote about 5 PDF Reader Applications for iPhone other than this. Do check them out too.
