    Easy to maneuver, understand, work with and utilize both in personal document preparation, legal forms and even in blog preparations and the ability to utilize in conjunction with Adobe Acrobat reader it allows the simplicity of implementing the utilization of adobe fill and sign Adobe print tools and the remaining array of Adobe Acrobat personal and business applications!

    This App has help a lot. It makes research easy for me. I like music a lot and through this App I have got easy access to music I'd never had the opportunity to listen. It has also made my learning easy,such as my church doctrine,it has help me to get more knowledge about my doctrine,it was difficult for me to buy the hard copy of our studies but easy to get the soft one.Surely this App is useful.

  • Super handy app May 1, 2020

    By TheMacDuffs
    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.

  • 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.

    Been great and pretty easy to use and navigate. If your like me and spend alot of time downloading, reviewing, signing, and viewing documents then it is a great resource. Also haven't really used or accessed the "cloud" capabilities yet but definitely look forward to giving it a shot. Will definitely update and review it and post my experience.

  • 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!

    It was a good dear to me for a loooooong time, saved my life in uni and high school. But a few years back it started with all those new updates that were unnecessary to me (I only used to read pdfs, so dark mode and reflow were my only requirements). Then reflow got really buggy. The words were cut suddenly, only to appear a few paragraphs later. The sentences were all jumbled. I had to be on continuous mode to read. Now I'm fed up with this and it's time to say goodbye.

    There are 3 things I need to do with a PDF: view a PDF, edit it, and save it. This app fails completely for #3. Ctrl+s...seems to do nothing. Theres no 'Save' option in the menu. Theres a 'save as copy' option, but I dont want to make a copy every time I save. Maybe, sometimes, it seems to save if I work out of my chromebook download directory, but never when trying to edit something on my google drive. Am I supposed to pay $7.99 a month to get a save button? Ill find a competitor.

  • 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.

  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.

    Very simple and easy to use app. I can effortlessly view & read stories at a size I can see. (I can hit Read mode and the text size can be changed).. Not many PDF Viewers allows you to edit the size of text of whatever PDF book your reading. I can now clearly Read books that I downloaded into my phone from this application without straining my eyes to see. I highly recommend trying out this app if your a book lover..

  • 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

    Once I found the app would let info be added/ saved AND I could find it again to add more, it's pretty good. All that is free.👍 I am not sure if I will be able to print the document w/o signing up w/ Premium. Also I think I will have to make each weekly record on my computer and save it there to be uploaded to my phone adobe app. I will try to add to this review once I determine this.

  • 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.

  • Acrobat Reader.: My review May 17, 2020

    By BonnieSK
    I really like using Acrobat Reader in order to save pages from the internet to be able to read or reference later and to save copies of online orders and refunds and files so that they are always available to me and I can keep them conveniently with me on my iPhone and/or iPad wherever I go without having to carry a bulky, (and extremely heavy,) amount of paperwork, and can use it to quickly access the document cloud and add attachments in pdf form to emails or messages, or open it in notes to reference it quickly on my iPhone while I’m reading something on my iPad. The only issue I had was that I hadn’t kept up with technological advances and hadn’t used the internet or pretty much anything as far as newer technology for years and so it took me some time to figure out how to use Acrobat Reader and am still figuring some things on it. I have to say that it has been fairly easy to figure it out though even without having used adobe acrobat or early version of Reader in so long. Over all I rate the basic online version that I use, without any upgrades so it’s free, as 9 out of 10, but that’s because of my lack really and I didn’t check to see if there is tutorial though either. Keep it up everyone at Adobe!! Awesome products👍👍 a Happy consumer, Bonnie K., Oregon City, Oregon

  • 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.

    The user interface isn't super great, and getting pages to fill the screen when a document has both portrait and landscape pages in it is finicky. Would be four stars. I am giving it two stars because it does as advertised, but the software is very bloated, 220Mb for the app itself and another 50Mb for user data. Mind you my user data consist of 'declining to send usage data and not signing in' and the app constantly sends info to adobe. Opening a file on my phone does not require data use.

  • Hate the new user interface. Oct 27, 2018

    By dvd587
    I loved the old user interface, everything was where it needed to be and within reach. This new UI is horrible, clunky and annoying. I especially hate being asked constantly to sign in/up for something just to use a PDF viewer. That’s all I need this app to do, look at PDFs. Not link it to social media so I can share things in the cloud with people who don’t need to see what I’m looking at. Why did you need to move the bookmarks button behind a menu at the top of the screen? It was perfect at the bottom right corner. Why do you feel the need to have me fill and sign every PDF? In case you didn’t know a manual for something doesn’t need to be filled out. Finding the right chapter in a manual or using the search function is more important than filling out non-existent fields. I especially dislike when I go to send someone something over airdrop it brings up a blank screen and reminds me I should log in for no reason, and then hit another greyed out button to bring up the native iOS transfer menu. Guess I’ll go find a new PDF viewer.
