    Subscription price doubled!! 😡 I had this for $4.99/month for a long time, now it's $9.99 and I don't understand why! I just need the ability to remove pages and add text every now and then for pdf patterns that I buy and download. I won't be keeping this subscription for very long, that's for sure! Also, it would be nice to be able to change the order of the pages without having to create separate files and combine them! That might be worth paying a little extra for!

    Just downloaded this app & so far so good it has impressed me a lot I'm still exploring it. One suggestion though you might want to put a feature on here that reads back the PDF file to person in audio form that it was sent to, so I can multitask hands-free which is a big plus for me. since you guys are all about collaboration I suggest you might want to add it, if not a included feature now.... Like I said still exploring so far so good thumbs up to you all and keep up the good work

  • Super handy app May 1, 2020

    Love this app... works wonders on an iPhone and makes so much more so much easier and obtainable via your iPhone vs having to use the computer. Can access most everything right on our phones now and even upload and forward or send most all needed documents. Can’t begin to count how many times this app have been a complete life saver! Thank you adobe! No complaints here, do wish more features where available throughout each app instead of having to open multiple apps and somewhat bounce back and forth between them, however despite that small inconvenience you have still absolutely completely saved our butts hugely several times! We’d be up s*~! Creek with out you so once again thank you for all the simplicity and conveniences you’ve brought to and made available on iPhone.

    I think it's a good app. You can type, draw, comment, highlight quotes or phrases about the text. It's useful, it has dark mode, reading mode, page by page mode, etc. It has some premium stuff but basically it's great.
  • Very powerful, missing critical annotation feature Sep 6, 2019

    By DrOverbuild
    This app has been great when it comes to storing, reading, and annotating documents. I’ve been using it with the Apple Pencil and I’ve noticed the drawing features are lacking support for the pencil in one key area: it takes the touch of the palm of my hand or my fingers as drawing touches. I must have the option to ignore all drawing events with my hand and just accept them from the Apple Pencil, with the exception of scrolling. I want to be able to use two of my fingers to navigate the document and the Apple Pencil strictly for drawing. Because I don’t have the option for this extended Apple Pencil support it’s difficult for tasks such as writing notes over presentation slide PDFs during the presentation. I can’t rest the palm of my hand on my iPad and write normally because it listens to finger touch events. EDIT: I have learned a day later that once you start using Apple Pencil in drawing mode, it ignores other touches, but you have to start with the pencil. Still, it would be nice to be able to scroll without leaving draw mode.

    On most files/downloads that I try to open, it will go to a black blank screen. Never opens as the page that was in the download. This is on my Samsung Note 9. I am about to dump Adobe and try another that will actually work. Has been for several months. Have uninstalled and reinstalled in case something had been corrupted with no improvement. Can't find any help page and tired of it. Now, when I get a pdf, it will only open to my printer's print page. Not as a document that can be read.

  • Latest updates killed me Oct 17, 2018

    By Camscannerfanatic
    I use this app primarily for work purposes. I save all my service receipts to this app and also fill out and submit safety and order forms daily. The recent update changed alot of things. First of all, the new design I don't like. That I can get used to but it's made it more difficult to use in my opinion. Some of the buttons are not labeled now, they only have icons so I have to guess what they do until I press them and find out if I'm right or wrong. More importantly, there are functions/operations that changed. For example, sharing a file through email no longer takes the file name and automatically makes it the subject line of the email. Also, when you sort by name,files with letters now follow files with numbers. I have to scroll through a hundred files (which have dates) to get to my template (which starts with letters). So I had to through a random zero at the beginning so it's at the top. There is more I could write but I think you get my point. I realize it may sound like nitpicking but when you use the app as much as I do it becomes very annoying. I am disappointed you made such a big change and it doesn't seem to be for the better. Let's get some of this fixed so I can change this back to 5 stars.

  • What happened Mar 11, 2019

    By jior design
    As a subscriber of the Adobe creative cloud I am very displeased to see the industry standard for PDF software become practically unusable! In fact Adobe Acrobat no longer works on my iPhone XS! When I choose to download or simply view a pdf file, Adobe Acrobat nor the Adobe Creative Cloud app appear in the list of apps to choose from in the iOS share to/open menu! I tried a workaround by saving the PDF file to "files" both locally and via iCloud drive then attempted to open the saved PDF file via Adobe Acrobat which incredibly failed to open with a message stating "File type unsupported"... This is unacceptable! Can't open the very file format Adobe Acrobat is meant to not only open but create and manage! Wow just wow! Not sure what is going on but Adobe is slacking with other apps as well! I'm contemplating canceling my CC subscription since $50 a month is a price only worth paying for the best and I am literally seeing more and more apps that offer more! The mobile apps are terrible besides a select few! Out of all, I never thought Acrobat would ever lose the crown but here I am having to find an alternative in order to save the PDF I need! Verbal apologies won't change the fact that I'm dishing out money for software that isn't working properly!

    I also agree w/ Barry Lankford's review. I personally have formal education in computer information science. Many changes since, the basics in roots are same. I held a role titled Merchandising Marketing Analyst for over 10 years. In all that has changed I still hold the ability to works that are deep within. I am bothered by the fact of all one must GIVE UP in order for use!!! In that of our PRIVACY. I wish people would come together and DEMAND this practice to STOP. i feel bullied into rape

    Combining PDF is very difficult. They never show up in order and can not combine more then two at a time without the order being jumbled. I managed to combine up to 14 pdf's by combining two at a time and then combining the two to the master document at which point it started messing up the order. I will have to try combining one at a time now with the master document.

  1. Need to sign that lease or contract? Easily make your document legal and binding with the swipe of a finger
  2. Annotate and review where needed! Highlight, note, and make comments on PDFs using sticky notes and drawing tools.
  3. Multiple ways to view document files and PDFs: Single Page, Continuous Scroll, or Reading Mode.

    This is a paid subscription however it has paid for itself several times over. It’s every important document saver with adobe cloud. It’s a must for anyone that is a multi tasker from a busy Mom to an executive. The best app that is also a must have is Adobe Scan app. That is the most convenient app I’ve ever downloaded. It can save business cards to your favorite pictures your kids have made and can print and edit better than any program. So yes I pay every month for the apps but it comes with a lot of Adobes Apps. Would most definitely recommend you won’t be disappointed. If I had one ding I wish they would put down the monthly payment. Maybe they will read this and make the change!!

    I love how it seamlessly connects across devices; i have access to my docs wherever i go. This is a great feature as an attorney who has to go to different court houses, or where my computer is moving to slowly at home. I also can't knock the redaction and e-signature feature.

  • Finally , I find the best PDF files app that suit me Feb 23, 2019

    By Tomshz
    I had tried a few different PDF files and Acrobat is the best so far . It has all the features and functionalities in helping me creating , editing PDF files ; it has very simple interface and tools in guiding me to finish my works. with the Scan file app , it add more useful functions in creating PDF files ; the Acrobat cloud allows me to access my files from everywhere ; and upload to cloud to store my files securely . and Sharing the files easily to anyone . On the other hand , I find the app a bit of confusing in some area . the default language is English (UK) ; the app i was downloaded for my iphone , I can not use the app to edit or fill the files . and it require Window or Mac Version of the app to edit or fill my files. Why can the app tell me before I purchase it ? lastly , I cannt download the finished the files to my iphone or my icloud

    Adobe Acrobat & Reader are outstanding programs. I have been using both of them over twenty years. While in the U.S. Navy, we used Acrobat to make a lot of documentation & training material into PDF files to reduce storage & weight issues. I've used Reader as so many Govt & State documents & files are in PDF format, and on the internet are easily filed or sent.

  • Need auto-save as you work Feb 8, 2020

    By G.G.Lórien
    Update: delete and reinstall app fixed the launch issue; back to 4 stars. Update: from 4 to 1 star. 2-2-20 app update results in app crashing on my iPad while it’s working on launching, then it just sits in the background stuck on th3 splash screen before I flick it closed. Utterly useless to me right now... Unlike Office and Google, this will not save changes as your filling in forms or annotating; will save changes only when you back out of the document to the larger document list. I have a fillable PDF I type into during a group study, and lost 1 1/2 hrs worth of work when the app crashed. I lost all that work because the info in the lecture was coming fast and furious and I didn’t have time to back out to the documents list so this particular group study PDF could save. Thought about giving it three stars because of this issue, but other than that I like the app.

  • New update hindrance to annotation Oct 2, 2018

    By Mr.Culbertson
    For users annotating PDFs the pen tool’s thickness has been scaled up with no smaller option, making it impossible to write small annotations in margins with Apple pencil. Further, comments and drawings are not saved automatically. Previously users could go between local copies of their documents and have all annotations saved. Now we have no choice but to save in the cloud to retain changes, and see two copies show up in our library? Lastly, tools have an added step and have been miniaturized and placed on the top pane, after tapping the blue pen icon in the bottom right. This update totally baffles me; why make an update that reduces functionality save the addition of cloud improvements? If this isn’t fixed I’ll be using a third party app. I had loved Adobe Reader for its clean UI and superior aesthetic when annotating documents. Why this update?

  • Only a basic reader Oct 26, 2020

    By dtnel72
    This is only a basic reader and not much more. I find that it lacks the ability to select multiple PDF files that you may have stored in your cloud account and then transfer them simultaneously to the device. A good example would be I have about 35 files I want to transfer to my device from my iCloud account and I have to go through and manually transfer each one of them one at a time. I have Google searched trying to find a way to batch move files but I cannot seem to find that I know the option used to be there before and be very easy. If it’s something that I have to pay for and I will continue using my dropbox account in the same manner it just will only take one extra step and stead of 35 extra steps. To sum it up basically you get a basic reader with Adobe acrobat reader and that’s about all you’re going to get. You can Open, read and share files but in my opinion I don’t see a whole lot more unless they’re not really advertising their products.

  • Being Over-Charged through duplicate accounts Apr 8, 2021

    By boxipip
    I have subscribed using various emails; since changing to another phone, I have not been able to use the Premium features on my first, and preferred, account. The trouble is- I now am paying for the Adobe Scan , the PDF converter, and the first account, with my best files, though free, I can’t use to the full, lest I also add another PAID subscription to it. I’m already paying for 2 of the aforementioned services under emails I had used subsequent to my first account. I’m up to about 30 dollars per month, with scattered files. I can’t just go away and come back like I was wanting to( the device I.D. has to be forgotten for 120 days( or something to that effect), I have no personal assistance that I know if except all the reading material. So now I’m trapped. With the past single premium subscription, I had full functionality. Now I just feel not in control and just bewildered about what to do.

  • This app used to be wonderful, but now... Oct 28, 2018

    By GRIFFINSTE1N
    ...it’s terrible. It was extremely user friendly, from its organization (folders first, then separate files - this made so much sense, why would you change it?! I don’t want to have to put a number before my folders so they display before files) to its editable features (highlighting...the new colors and transparency options are terrible, seriously). If I tapped the screen while on a document, the superfluous information would go away until the screen was tapped again. Brilliant. Now, every time you scroll that information is displayed, what if I just want to read the raw document!? And seriously, it’s a PDF reader, why are you trying to fit some new mold with the design? And for the life of me, how can I delete the STUPID “Welcome” document out of my files? And why will this update not “find” text when I search through documents that the previous version would? Please revert this “improved update” to the way it was when it was useful and simple. Will definitely be switching apps if this isn’t changed.

Anytime I try to scroll it just highlights something and won't let me scroll other than by clicking the page number on the siflde which scrolls through 10+ pages with even the slightest movement. This app no longer functions to read pdf documents.
