Open multi documents? I have no real problem with last update. Seems to be business as usual. Still cannot open multiple PDFs in multiple windows. Currently have to use ADC and Hancom HWord.

Sumedha Seth

Editing not possible in latest version I am not able to edit my pdfs...... By highlights or adding text etc..... The dialogue box simply doesn't appear.... Plz fix it asap

Carrie Leyva

Pdf Wouldn't allow me to change a file to pdf and charged me $9.99. I want my money back. That file was the only reason I signed up. Should've allowed a free trial. What a rip off.

David Peter

Where are the edits buttons??? In the earlier version it was possible to really study with this application, like editing it, highlighting, underlining, adding text etc. It is all missing now! Or am I missing something...?

Nacimzarem Halawi

Great Update! Finally got the "local" tab. :). One last tweak will be great, & that's, the night view mode. The pitch black bg and extreme white font is quite unpleasant to the eye while reading @night esp wen d lights r turned off. It wud be gr8 if we can adjust the bg shade to grey or that there is no HIGH contast between the font color & the bg color.

Jimmy Atool

File system scanning inadequate; doesn't open .PDF files automatically The old version didn't have this this problem; .pdf open fine, but .PDF don't. Get it together adobe. Also filesystem scanning is too slow to update downloaded files or is not looking at all storage. Bring back file open dialogue. Now I'm using polaris office instead.

Stacy Steinke

Crashes 3 seconds in after update Every time I open a document with my Note 2 the app force closes 3 seconds later. Also the new night mode has bright white bars on top and bottom.

Eric Kuan

I knew you'd come around! Accessing locally stored PDFs is a go! ? One minor niggle concerning the UI: The pop-up dialog for deleting PDFs is still Holo, (loved Holo, maybe more so than Material) but some consistency to Material would be nice.

Joshua Burkhart

Answered my every need Everything is perfect for what I need except I did not see the "night mode" option, but Adobe replied fast with a response to my negative review with proper instructions, great job!

Himanshu Lad

Good app but quiet slow I read a lot of scanned ocr docs. It takes lesser time to read the content than time taken by Adobe Reader to render it. Need to improve performance. Ebookdroid is much faster though it is not as versatile as adobe

Christopher Kahle

Great App if a bit Unstable Lots of features and can be a life saver if you have a need to make and read pdf files on the go. BUT will periodically crash on my Note 4. Hopefully future updates will address the issue.

Steve H

Now its an Update When they took away the ability to duplicate or rename a file and made it hard to find a file I gave the upgrade 1 star and so did alot of people but now they've updated the update and corrected the above problems and I give the app 4 stars. DC also opens a file much faster now. It's nice to see a company listen to the people who use its product and correct an issue when it arises.


Gives me that genuine view that I was always looking for. I love it! Every pdf looks the same on my computer as it does on my smart phone. I can read pdf books instead of downloading them from play books, because the pdf is what gives the actual view of the book. Love it!

A Google User

Thanks Adobe... ...for fixing the issues caused in the DC update. Having quick access to local files is very important to me. As a service tech, it doesn't look good to a customer when I have to fumble around with my phone/tablet to find the manual I need. The newest update (4/22/15) has fixed this issue, so I am updating my review from 2 stars to 4 stars. I like the new layout but the price seems a little steep to be able to create PDFs ($24.99/month). It is a nice app for reading PDFs though.

Nicholas Alt

Features Removed A few weeks ago I was able to send documents by fax. With the new app I can't find the option anymore. Otherwise the app is alright, good potential, but interface isn't intuitive, and I am often confused as to what is happening or how to do what I am trying to do.

Anna Yuan

Missing the old features I know these might be minimal but I miss just viewing and editing on the same screen as oppose to flipping back and forth between different tabs. As well as not a fan of the colour update....

Tyson Daun

Good changes Good changes but I can't get rid of the stupid getting started document it reappears everytime i reopen the app no matter how I delete it.

vishwajeet maurya

Adobe reader disappointed me alot I m using adobe reader from many years but old version is so good from new one......New one takes a lot of time , when I m clicking to create a new PDF then it takes 3-4 minutes......which very disappointed me...sry adobe.....

Patricia Lasseter

Not crap now Not user friendly, for myself anymore. Can't find most of my pdfs and now save to my other reader which is simplicity itself - don't know why you changed what was a simple free reader. When I work out how to transfer my pdfs I'm uninstalling. I've installed the update and its once again user friendly-thanks Adobe

David Mutisya

Very Good ..Great job, thanks for adding the Local folder... I had began to get frustrated after the update, but now everything is Cool .Well done

Daniel Mönch

Night mode with white menu bars... I like how finally you can see the table of content. I also approve all the new features nobody really needs. However, what on earth did you take to make the menu bars white in NIGHT mode!? Oo Please darken them!

naresh lal

A request to adobe.... I am unable to rename the download files...and also can't move the file to an already created folder....both these options were there in previous version...plz check tat too...the old version was so user friendly and easy to update is not user friendly...

Thrinath kumar

Absolutely superb U just solved the problem what I was facing with previous update

Tyler Rowley

Works Great! I have used this app to view PDF files on my phone, and it seems to work very well. I have yet to run into any problems personally, and have been able to read any of my PDF files from my devices. Works great!

Angelika Acebedo

It keeps on hanging. Please fix it. Just because it consumes a small a mount of memory in you phone it doesnt mean that there will be no lags. Fix it for a massive 5 stars!

Matthew Vazquez

Wow local folder is back I was just about to replace this app due to the missing local folder. It was driving me crazy how hard they made it to locate my local files after the new update. I downloaded a different pdf viewer to see id it'll work like this used to but then I saw there was an update and they brought it back. Thanks and please don't do it again.

Elias G.

No voice reading option No voice reading option like the one found in desktop version. Zooming buttons are essential for non touch devices such as smart TVs. Finally, some PDFs open correctly in other readers but not with adobe pdf reader. Edit: Took me an hour to disable that Talkback as it disables normal touch and voice commands even after a hard reboot. Its a whole system voice instructions. Please add TTS as many other readers did. thanks

Christopher Nelles

No bottom scroll bar Removal of the page scroll bar at the bottom of the reader makes it nearly USELESS to view a document. It's very difficult to navigate. A reader program needs to do only two things: display the document and allow easy navigation. 50% failure.

Michael Halter

Locked Forms...!? I have fillable forms I was able to use before the they are "locked" and I am not able to use them...totally useless! And, apparently I now must upload my files to your stupid cloud in order to access them rather than getting them from my device storage - which uses precious data time. How do I go back to the previous version?

Anil Gupta

Too slow even after update This reader is very slow to open the e books. I m a doc, I hav a lot of books in my mobile. This reader takes too long to open the pages especially when a page consists of picture. also all of my books are in phone memory not in sd card, still it is taking too long to open the pages. Kindly fix this issue ASAP as it is tarnishing legacy of Adobe to access pdf..

Rosebud Osunkwo

I don't like the acrobat I wish you could separate the Adobe acrobat from the regular adobe reader. I like how simple it was before. Now there's the annoying sidebar and I don't know if it's just me but there's also a bit of a lag on my android as well as my iPad. I don't like it... gonna get a different pdf viewer. Thanks for the good times we shared. See ya!

Joel Daou

Annotation Nightmare To highlight (or Annotate) 4 clicks are needed. Ridiculous. It used to be 2 before this stupid user unfriendly Update. Also NOW 2 BARS appear (instead of 1, taking away precious space on my tablet). Do we need A full bar with one word (comment, viewer,...). DO ADOBE SMART DEVELOPERS USE THE SOFTWARE?

Wael Shaalan

File listing Bringing back the local file listing is great. It was quite awful to keep searching for a file using file manager app to locate it in order to be able to open. Very good job, thanx guys.

ari mar

Update: Loads once, crashes every time thereafter until restart. This is a great app if you have a lot of info in pdf format. Allows you to highlight and add notes. Would like a free-form highlighter though; in order to highlight, you have to make a selection and sometimes it will inadvertently carry over to the next word or highlight half a word. I would buy it so I could convert other content into pdf's but apparently that requires a subscription. I'd pay a one time fee for that and be done with it.

Thomas Dent

Used to be easy.....still is now. 01 May 2015....Update.....after 3 days of using tablet with this last update the little worm has finally found all my PDFs on the internal card and the external card in all the sub folders.ALL GOOD NOW as it used to be. Thanks people. Still the best PDF reader from the people who invented PDF.

Sathiya Narayanan Vivekanandan

There is no folder view option and its difficult to drag through all the pages to find my document

Keith Andrews

Had issues with previos update, this update fixed the major ones. Thx for speedy fix !!! Still would like to see better contrasting colors. Only has access to recent. Lose all your other folders !! Try to uninstall and lost everything !!! PIECE OF GARBAGE! Definitely time to find another app. Should have learned from previous "downgrades" Just tried a study. Underline, highlight all changed. Colors are horrible. Don't stand as well as old. Process is way more steps. Wish I could give a negative rating. 1 star way too high !!!

Pushpendra Singh

Limited Feature Accessible - Limited will always Irritate (see how?) Beside Pro access many features should be extend to user's choice custom experience. #Charactor/Signature/Highlight colors better if provided through two column color access like paint apis. #Charactor Size is a big issue and meaningless if not fitted in main article character size. (1-5,7,9…missing) #Highlight feature not working properly. We can hide characters completely by Highly Dark Opacity Black Color but not with Others like White, Green, Red etc so they are not matching with White other backgrounds

Thomas Anderson

Thank you. Now the app is great again. Thanks. Now the app is super again.

Shawna Butler

Cannot open PDFs all I suddenly cannot open ANY PDF files on my phone. They all say error opening document. I can go on the computer and open just fine. It doesn't matter the website or doc. It doesn't open.

Jimmy Mack

Can't send annotated PDFs Great app BUT, with this new update from 6/17, on my Note 4, when I annotate a PDF and send it via email, the file is corrupted and becomes a 64 bytes file that cannot be opened by the recipient. The program was great before that. Fix this so we can get back to 5 stars!

Archit Kumar

No complaints This is the app from the creators of pdf standard themselves. Works just like it should. Indexes, Bookmarks, Liquid Smooth pinch-to-zoom, resume from last read page, recently opened files for fast switching...the only nitpick would be that its download size is a bit large for a reader.

James Sailor

Never recognize my email or my password what is going on I go through this all the time it don't make sense you don't recognize my email or my password I go through this all the time with you what is going I use the same password and email all the time!!! And I can not link to you and that don't even work.

Tyler Rowley

Works Great! I have used this app to view PDF files on my phone, and it seems to work very well. I have yet to run into any problems personally, and have been able to read any of my PDF files from my devices. Works great!

Jewel The Don

WTF the update is..?? It's running smooth on my device, but after the last update it's crashed every time I run, what the hell happening..??

Dana Blanton

Pay I shouldn't have to pay to see my documents or emails. Even on the so called free version. Not worth the storge space sence you can't look at anything.this is gay it use to be free for everything.people and company are getting to dam greedy.thanks for nothing.

Samuel Viana

Besides the constant change of the name (some weeks ago it was Adobe DC Reader and the logo was different) and the aesthetical changes to keep the app with the new Lollipop main design, nothing is new in this app. The way to make comments is still not useful and not clear. For now, I started to use Xodo and I'm happy in using it :) .

Vivek Sharma

Amazing! Great work by adobe,such a nice application and the best part about it is that it's totally free!

Dennis Colon

Cannot name files anymore Used to be able to name all files. Now you can't. Why it's gone not understandable.

Kenneth Esbin

Layout I hate the new layout. I really enjoy my menu on the left and the files on the right. This flipping back and forth is not only annyoing but inefficient

Arjun Nalapat

Adobe can do better Coming from such a powerhouse like adobe the app is way too basic. I can open pdfs. But that's it. The text reflow mode is the most important when reading on a mobile but it's severely lacking. The reflow does not adjust to screen size and makes it very hard to read. It gets stuck on heavy pdfs too. And why can't I open a second pdf window? If I refer another pdf, I have to again open the previous document. I should be able to switch surely? As a pdf reader it's passable but I expect more.

Sourav Sen

SOME ISSUES WITH TEXT-REFLOW MODE The app crashes when I try to load a relatively heavier pdf document in text reflow viewing mode. This occurs in Asus Zenfone 5, with android kitkat. Fix it.

Omar Hamza

The new Update. It was working great and I loved the app. Suddenly it keeps crashing every time I open it, since the last update.

Skurai P.

Document title / name Excellent updates, but I wish you can show the doc title or name just pressing the file once after you open it(except seeing the "Viewer" at the top). Kinda tideous that I have to close the file to see what file I opened for confirmation. Nevertheless, this is just an opinion

Steven Brashear

Corruption Issue The software works great at first. But once I try to share it corrupts the file and it is no longer readable. Used to love it, now hate it. Has costed me lots of time and money.

Josh Clark

Lacking basic functions. Doesn't support formatted page numbers, for example page numbers that aren't there actual order. Like when page number 1 starts after a table of contents. Also page numbers with dashes like 14-116.

A Google User

Force closes Hi, is this compatible with lollipop? The latest version closes when opening it. Using samsung galaxy tab 8.4 s and I get force closes all the time I open the app. Install and unsintall still doesn't save it

David Heiss

Newest Update MAJOR FLAW The "sharing" via e-mail function fails to actually attach the file to the email. So, the receiver of the "shared" (singed or commented upon PDF) gets an e-mail with no attached file. Android mobile and tablet devices using 4.1.2 and 4.4.2 both had this problem. FAIL of epic proportion.

Daevid Vincent

still no thumbnails for local? How is it that it still doesn't show the book cover instead of the stupid adobe logo icon for my PDFs in the local tab (only for recent)?!

Kunal Mazumdar

Samsung S7392 A must have app. I read a lot PDF books using this app. I love the recent update where u can reflow the text. Thanks to the dev team for doing it.

Margaret Scruggs

Pdf not showing up I would have given 5 stars but ever time I try to download a pdf file it says it downloaded but it is never showing up in the app. Plz fix

Wade Bellamy

Export to Exel doesn't Work Enjoy the app use it all the time on pc and my phone. Decide to try the export feature, subcribed through the app. It doesn't register on the my phone. Keeps telling me I have to subscribe. R267 a year is worth it, if it works. No refund, but you can still use the feature for the next 365 day. Whats the point, its not letting me use it. So i've paid to use something I can't use. Rethinking the photoshop cc download i'm doing. Enjoy the PS app on my phone, pc must be good. After 30 days then what?

Albert Bloomfield

ok Please add support for page labels! Seriously, is it that hard? Page numbers are useless if they don't correspond to reality.

Tapan Shah

Used to do wonders before update App was working really great before last update. And now I can't even open the app.. I am on Lollipop 5.1.1. Pls Fix the issue asap.

Elimosaria Maeda

The Great Adobe reader Indeed the new adobe reader DC is a great application for reading pdf files and a fast downloader. If you create and activate an adobe account you can download all files into all devices including laptops. It runs faster on all genuine smartphones. Besides reading pdf files, it is also a fast downlader. It is fascinating that the files can either be transferred to a laptop and be retrieved or downloaded due to device synchronization.

Amanda Medlin

1 star to get noticed. No flash. Can't even play small clips from Face book. Thats really all I use the flash for. Everything else works great on my Galaxy 3.

Kenneth Christian

Was my favorite reader once upon a time The recent update broke the application. It simply crashes upon starting it up. Hence, was forced to switch to google's pdf viewer. Never expected such a level of quality assurance from adobe. Please test and fix it for the Mi Pad.

Bishoy Gamil

Need to put the name of the file instead of "viewer" I liked the previous theme more it was unique and elegant but this ,,, I like the options but was happier

Martyn Smith

Ok what have you done with the 'folder view' option? I have many pdf files in many folders and having to scroll through all of them to find a particular file is too time consuming compared to using the inbuilt file browser that was included in previous versions. A backward evolution imo.

noy alonso

WTF!!! It was perfectly great but after the update the app started to crash at startup -_- fix and I will give 5 stars.........

Bob Huffman

Does anyone at Adobe actually test a new release before uploading to Google Play?

Andrés Torti

Crash on startup The app crash on startup since last update. I tried reinstalling but it keeps crashing. I've sent you the report with error. I hope you can fix it, the app is the best PDF reader.

Email Tron

Portable Document Format reader for Android The app rarely causes problems, being the most compatible version available for Android. On PC, I'm more hip, and use 3rd party PDF tools. is hard to forget.

Solah Da Silva

Doesn't Work app doesn't work after the newest update on my Galaxy Camera. Please fix this. very important app for me. thanks

semsem viper

was my best till last update the last update is boreing as no fast acess to tools as u must hold.... then choose... then mark.... then ...... why ??u was doing good work please make tool bar :( thanks

Dakshay Verma

Damn good Guys its damn good as comparison to other smart phone PDF readers. Just try it out.

Sam Clementi

Intense Since installing this app I have been Adobe reading all over my front lawn in the filthiest way you can imagine.

George Belmont

Can't share documents with update I frequently email pdfs from my Galaxy note P605. I discovered much to my disappointment and inconvenience that this function has been blocked. When I have tried to send docs the receiver gets an empty email. I need to be able to send files direct from my tablet and not through third party applications. Very disappointing update.

Kevin Basis

maybe a color choosee that has more diverse color choices would be nice

Lakshmi Pandalai

It dosent allow me to sign in There is a bug....its telling me to sign up but I'm unable to do so. I really want to see all my files... :(

Steve Wynveen

This would be 4 or more stars if you would let me zoom out (like Google's pdf viewer allows). I have a big 10" tablet, and, believe it or not, there are lots of times I'd like to see more on the screen than a forced full screen width view allows. I'd like to make use of all the other features this app has over Google pdf viewer, but the forced full screen make me always go Google.

Samuel Adebimpe

Improved version but for the signature feature removal This current version is okay but for the removal of the signature feature that use to be on previous version. Now I can't sign on my documents. Not so good at all

Raul Martinez

Does almost a good job. I need to convert a file to PDF and it wants me to subscribe to $9.99 a monthly service. For one conversion? No thank you

Bruno Alves

Open file When reading a file, the bar on top should have the file name not the indication of "viewer", as I already know that I'm seeing a file but often I don't remember the file name because I've opened other files in a short amount of time, and yes I know that clicking documents I can see the name of the last opened document.

Ade Adedapo

Long press The latest version took away the signature option on long press. So there's like 2 or 3 more actions u Habra preform to do the same thing. But the did add where u can super impose a picture as a signature. Which means I can finally go paperless for work orders that require a stamp

Omar basamh

Good but, It crashes sometimes with large document like 380mb , and the find or search option is horrible as it jumps to another page and layout the pages with that word or phrases in it that takes a long time , skipping some pages that actually has the word and sometimes doesn't find any despite the fact it did already before .....i wish it will be fixed at least to resembles the one on the desktop in which it jump smoothly within the page highlighting the words or phrases . thank you .

Elif Kaya

Zoom Out on Continuous Scroll Mode Why do I have to see the pages fitted to my screen while using continuous scrolling? I would really like to zoom out as much as I want and navigate much faster through the pages. Also it's really hard to see the whole page layout when working with A4 pages using my tablet on landscape orientation, because you simply can't zoom out...

Timothy Macasa

sd card support please Having no sd card support presents problems especially with devices that have low internal storage space. Also, I like to put and organize all my pdfs in my sd card. This app is currently unusable to me atm. Hope this changes soon. Oh! and also please make rendering speed in single page view faster. Thank you. more power.

Ghulam Murtaza

Lack some features Add some features like landscape orientation from menu and also fails to load online files sometimes. Add some features as foxit has and 5 stars.

Gregory Cameron

Thank you I just want to thank the developers for listening to customer feedback and correcting all the problems from the dx update. This app is back to being the smoothest and all around best pdf reader that I've used

tommy woolsey

1 password and that's it if you don't like it because I don't have numbers or other things then you can go straight to hell goodbye and your lousy

A Google User

Made it crap by breaking it into separate apps. Why couldn't you leave signing and other features in it? It was perfect till you improved it to crap level. (I will test this out after work, and may adjust my rating if it does not require the external app, in any way.) Thank you.

Reppy 07

Never opens PDFs for me. Need to download PDF's regularly for work. This viewer never opened one. Either get some unsupported error or it just says please wait. No thanks.

Matulis McCance

Just as great as in Windows store However, lacks the ability to open multiple pdfs at the same time (as can be done by office suite. The latter is still inferior because this app has no ads and is 100% smooth and ZERO distraction.

Baczo Zsolt

Real great PDF reader but I have a small annoyance that is driving me crazy. Whenever I open a PDF it jumps to the page I was when last closed the app. In the right side there is a small popup something that shows the page number, and in order to hide it I have to tap the screen to show the menu and tap again to hide it, together with the page number popup. Is there a setting to disable the page number popup altogether? I'm considering uninstalling just because of this... Thanks in advance.

Gustavo Hylander

Yes the new local files browsing is superb. Nice! Although when I open a file from the SD a pop up window appears saying that Adobe will create a local copy of the file. I'm unsure what's that supposed to mean, the file is not in the mobile sync

Md.Redwan al-maruf Jusef

crap! First I thought the adobe acrobet reader for pc was a crap. Now I know I was wrong. Everytime I want to read a book I have to start and wait for 15 minites before the app finally loads. I thought may be this was my device but tested in several others. A total crap. uninstalling.

Taylor Hedge

Won't stay open The app will not stay open. The app continuously closes out while I'm trying to read my school books. " Unfortunately, Adobe Acrobat has stopped." Every single time!

Stephanie Jackson

Deleted everything. This app updated automatically on my phone and when it did ALL the documents I had on it have been deleted.. And a lot of them were documents that were paid for to have. Is there anyway I can get these back? It's saying nothing is on the document cloud too when I put everything on it.

Kamal Darwish

Arabic searching BUG Still not solved, why? Arabic Search bug is ignored in this new release v15.0.2. ...Dear Support, There is a big problem with Arabic words searching in an Arabic PDF file with adobe acrobat for android. To search for a word, I have to write the words backward, like instead of "Adobe" I have to write "ebodA" but in Arabic language. please fix the bug. Thanks

Dinesh Kumar

Struggles a lot when compared to PDF reader which comes with WPS office. When the PDF has HD images ,adobe reader struggles to load images in the PDF. When we move around the images the struggle is even worse. WPS PDF reader works smooth as a breeze when going around PDF files with HD images. Using it in mipad with android 4.4.4.

Andrew Stephens

What's all the angry winning about? I've read alot comments and am bugged with many of the user-folks that are angry & unsatisfied with a FREE APP! Folks, I want the World in a FREE app, but it ain't happening!? 2 suggestions: 1. Before downloading, READ the app developer's NOTES underneath the apps title. It'll let you know, for the most part, what the app can & cannot do. 2. If you're not sure it's has what you WANT, find the PAID$APPS & READ & BUY them. You'll be happier with it & then can complain about all the money you spent on it!

sebin mon

Issue needs immediate resolution! Thanks to Adobe for helping me read flawlessly during my study leave. But one thing that concerns me is while highlighting a sentence or a couple of words, the suggestion tab appears straight in front of the right cursor and blocks it, hence denying me from expanding/reducing the desired area to be highlighted.. please resolve the issue as the lone star is longing in despair to make its mark :)

John Pyers

Expensive! This is a gimmick to sell us monthly services for very expensive and unreasonable fees. Reader is fine - but so are any of the hundreds of other PDF readers. Scanning to PDF for $10/month? That's unreasonable.

suzie k

The best PDF reading app I've tried so many apps before, they all sucked. But this one is just genius It lets u: 1. When u close a document and reopen it again, u directly get the page u last read. 2. I have to read on my phone, which means, ofc, small fonts, but ur reflow effect is just genius! I don't have to worry about my eyes hurting again. 3. It lets me highlight things neatly. Thank u for such a great app!!

Nitish Agarwal

Not listed in screen draw over setting I am using this app in my nexus 5x (Marshmallow) whenever I try to open a PDF link on any website it asks me for the screen overlay permission. But this app is not listed in screen draw over settings besides due to this it is not even activating the storage permission. Because of all this fuss I am unable to download any PDF file from any site

Aniruddha Paturkar

Too much lag destroyed the great app The UI is impressive but lags! All fun gone. Sometimes it's very slow to open a file. Edit: no particular file. I experience the issue with any random file. Also, i have reported as per your request. Hope it gets fixed soon.

Kevin Aguirre

Every pdf I open has the chararacters all messed up It seems like the alphanuneric values foe each charactet are messed up bc I'm not able to show anything that is not gibberish on any pdf that I open on this app

Lyn O

Still no magnification in text reflow All documents have this problem. Think since you have so much access to our devices you can figure it out. THERE'S NO TEXT REFLOW, I DON'T KNOW WHY, THAT'S YOUR JOB

Zach Baessler

Need to be able to erase highlights! This app is pretty good. I use it to read a lot of e-books. One thing that really bothers me is that I cannot undo highlights. With the highlight function being as unreliable as it exists now, I would need to erase a lot of unwanted highlighted text. Please address this and I will change my star rating. Edit: An update has allowed me to perform this function. Thank you to the developers for the quick and helpful response.

Ato Aikins

Best pdf app!? Very simple to use. Highlighting of text is easy and very efficient. It does exactly what I want it to. Maybe the developers should consider adding multi tabs to it. Will make it excellent. ...then I'll give 5 stars✌

Alex Pena

Highlight I'm taking online courses for college and I'm trying to highlight sentences from the pdf files I download. It let's me highlight but only one word at a time. If I want to highlight a whole sentence I have to press the highlight button EVERYTIME for EVERY word. Very annoying. If it wasn't for that I would give it 5 stars but as such I can't use the app. Too time consuming

A Google User

GALAXYBACON2 N5 II Adobe Reader is very nice simple reader with great features. I enjoy pretty much All of Adobe Products and Services. Two Thumb's Up ;-) :-)

Iftikhar Hassan

Nice app, But I have a suggestion, when saving the doc to cloud, upload progress may run either in background or it may cover a small portion of the screen, so that reader is not interrupted just because upload is being done.

Amitabh Sharma

Hey Guys no page by page scroll on text reflow Thank you for confirming that those of us who were reading multiple pages using text reflow and scrolling page by page had got it wrong, we should be looking a eBook readers. Thanks for the response, I will try to restate my issue. When using a text reflow if my page comes in 3 screens. When I tap on the next, it should go to the next screen. I do not care about the page. This is how adobe reader behaved in the previous versions. Kind regards, Amitabh

Nate Thomasson

Junk! Won't allow you to view basic information such as where the document is stored, when it was created, edit the document, or what the name of the document is! Uninstalled!

Mary Boyle

Absolutely Perfect!! I love the Cloud.. I know I must have a sh!t ton of files on mine, yet it is still perfectly saving new ones!! I only wish the basic account allowed the organizing of pages w/o that feature only being part of a package you have to pay for. Maybe you could make Page Organizing an add-on feature by itself, for like $1.99 or so per month? That would be awesome, too. :) One problem though: Sometimes when I try to open a file found online, a pop-up dialog will appear saying it's "not a valid PDF". Why is this?

vishnu vardhan

Awesome. Can u make it to auto adjust text to fit with screen size? Because for some books I have to zoom the text for ever pages

Gene Sekel

Was good Was a top notch app until being able to sign was removed. Now they want you to use the fill and sign app. 2 apps to do what 1 could already do? Waste of time. They don't even play well together. Any form that is setup for being filled in already doesn't work with fill and sign and trying to only add a signature doesn't work either. Bad move adobe.... bad move.

Mandy Perriotte

Adobe Tried viewing a document needing adobe flash player 13.0 or greater. I'm unable to get it to download. ...Sumsung Galaxy 5s is what I have???

Striker Sora

What "like"? No, I loved it! A great tool to read, do adjustments, and highlight to your pdf files. If not the exact copy, I would say its the closest you'll get from that of the PC version. Kudos to the developers at Adobe. Thank you for still considering, doing some charity works. But why only 4 stars? I believe the Adobe guys are working their way to make this application better. And you know what they say, nobody/nothing is perfect. But there's such thing as "the best". :-)

Kimberly Wade

Great app but.. I use this app daily and I love it but when I click on mobile link, it directs me to the login page but I am unable to click anything to type in my email and therefore cannot login. Can anyone help? Maybe it's just my phone?

Dont Care

Something important missing We need a "two page scrolling" option for phones too not just tablets . That's very important guy's

untruthfull F

Thanks for the quick respond, but the problem is still not fixed. The there are some document that cant be reflowed when viewed with reading mode, that is still fine but its not fine when its hard to change viewing mode juat because the button cant be viewed because the page keeps moving and the button to change the viewing mode dont appear. I appreciate your fast respon. Thank you

Netsy Nets

Making the Best Better So nice to be able to delete those recent documents. Gr8! Adobe Reader has and is the "Gold Standard" in PDF readers. Thanks.

Barak Aga

Text - to - Speech | Read Out Loud Required Adobe Acrobat should introduce the «Text - to - Speech» feature for the mobile phone versions of Acrobat Reader; akin to the «Read Out Loud» feature in the desktop version.

Manish Choudhary

Unable to sign in to Adobe account from my tab.. The sign in link isn't working in Galaxy Tab A.. Tried uninstalling app, clearing cache and data but doesn't work... Sign in link doesn't respond.. Help!!


Can be better I read all my PDF documents on this app, including magazines. It should have the functionality of two-page view as when you're reading a paper back version of a document.

Tony Bradley

HP Slate 7 Good app!! No probs. Works just like the PC app.

Rob C

Used often. Always works. Always renders Document correctly, unlike some 3rd Party .PDF Readers. Added a 5 Star Rating since it has never crashed. Appreciate the recent Updates (wish Android Flash Player were Updated too).

Tony M.

Tony M. The best pdf software, hands down!

akshay bandewar

Pathetic! Earlier versions supported highlighting. Regret having updated to new versions.ADOBE..NOT KEEPING UP TO THE BRAND NAME...1.I cant Highlight. 2.I cant select n copy.

Edson Sandoval

Unstable It freezes or crashes 80% of the time. For some documents (simple pdf articles, few figures, 10 pages) it crashes every time. It is currently unusable for me.

Malav Soni

Cloud sign in problem I have been using this app and such a great PDF app amongst all others. But only one problem facing Whenever I open cloud sign in page, It gets freezed and couldn't be possible to tap sign in button or sign up button and I have to get away from cloud page. Please help me out on this issue. Thank you.

Kartik Thakar

Work Very well Clean. Easy and convenient. Always use this as default.

Muhammed Yousery

It supports moving to sd card and has amazing features

Abdul Hameed Abbasi

Great app I suggest all students in general and poor students in particular to use this app for reading pdf books and other informative material to enhance their knowledge, instead of buying expensive books try to download their pdf version from their official website.

sriman mishra

Loved this app. Just fabulous. It makes editing and reading a document easy.

Basha Singh

faster!! the update is flawless runs like a charm launch time improved for me.

Heather Cook

Doesn't work at all

Nina Ricci

Some time I want to clear all the Edit I had .. but I cant specialy signture

D. Harley

New 10-23-15 Need it to read files from Cloud? IDK yet?

abhay siddharth

It open all PDF file but some time it creating problem while zooming

Dan Lam

It works Wish there was built in .pdf support on Android, but since there isn't. This does the job.

Jason Hallock

Better reader I can read information better than the free one they gave to me.

Hemanta Basak

Nice app The best pdf reader, I ever used this is the best app..

Larensh Sankhwar

Please make edit file tool

Marc Singleton

No ads and a nice interface This is a great e-reader, acts like it's supposed to and I don't have ad banners at the bottom.

Billy Hodgdon

Ez Ez source to load and save files

tejender pal

Not good at all I download this app after saw my friend who use it for study on mobile. So do I. But it works not properly. Lagging many times. Pages from the documents are automatically wiped.

rafiqul islam

Very good for reading large book but slow on opening.


No wonder Adobe is hacked so easily, Updates to foreign languages, (chinese), etc., with no setting to block all for them. Adobe programs are sometimes necessary but very dangerous.

hatibusuk hasaddengki

i love this app very easy n useful

Gabriel Matte

Need to be updated I can't use the bookmark option any longer. It really sucks when I need to go threw a 500 plus page book to get a small detail


Missing Documents! I tried numerous PDF reader /annotators before landing on this app--and you've removed one of the best features--the SD card & device storage. I had to find the files on my tablet, but cannot open them in this version if the app. Cloud access is nice, but many, if not most, tablets operate on wi-fi only, rendering cloud storage (and therefore our documents) inaccessible in a lot of situations. I am very disappointed with the update; please fix this!

Filip St

getting better.. cloud feature is very important for me. the dropbox implementation is best improvement so far! only one thing left - improve the highlighting option so it stays ON when I select it. when you take a pencil it's in your hand the whole time, you don't have to pick up the pencil for every move :)

Wanda Ndabambi

Can't download Adobe Flash Player on Android phone Two issues: 1. I can't download Adobe Flash Player on my android phone. Please explain why? 2. I also can't download Acrobat Reader DC on my Android phone.

Ben Huxley

Navigation buttons disappear The phone navigation buttons disappear and then will only briefly pop up when I try to access them. Fix for 5 stars

Manish Choudhary

Oh ya, you were right!! I had installed Twilight screen filtering app.. Once I force stopped it, I was able to sign in to my adobe account.. And all options are working nw... But the same app has been installed on my phone too, Galaxy J7 and it didn't caused any issues in Adobe Reader .. Anyways, Thanks...

Christian Collamar

One annoying performance issue... Overall, the app's nice. However, finding terms tends to be slow, if not very slow. I find it irritating especially if I'm in a hurry.

Manabendra Ray

recent crashes: miPad with MIUI 7.3.1 black screen hanging if sd card (Class 10 Sandisk) is selected as document cloud cache. Excellent reader and getting better with time. Dropbox sync is a great option that finally made me install this over other paid pdf reader.

Pranav raut

Awesome app Cool UI, easy to use and work smoothly on low end divices. I love this application

Jane Smith

Variety of file types but download limitations I had to download Adobe to open a file from the US copyright office but many times if you want to download, select Chrome because Adobe never downloads but only reads PDF files! And then so far as I can tell over a few days of use, I have to use the Google PDF reader because Adobe leaves the text completely illegible as if it's been scrambled. Update: I just now had to download Google docs to open a file from navy federal. I guess maybe I'm just having bad luck with it. Thanks, Jimmy

Shahrokh K.

Latest update non-functional on phones! action bar at the bottom unresponsive! (Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Kitkat)... SOLVED... Yes, you're right, it's because of screen filtering app... If turned off, action bar is responsive... BUT, This incompatibility only arises when installing a new software, or asking for root privilage for the first time, so which one is adobe reader trying to achieve in the background? Hmmm

chinmay sawant

Needs to compatible with marshmallow I m running on marshmallow and i can't see my files stored on external sd card what should i do.

Ko Tetsu

Great But im looking for PRINT Current View .. like the one in the pc version.. since i can print now via cloud print for older printer models

Colton K

Works sometimes I really appreciate this service, but I get frustrated when things don't work: I use this app to view my electronic textbooks during class and when I'm doing practice problems; but when I try to skip to the back of the book, the pages don't load. This prevents me from checking my answers and really limits the apps usefulness to me. Things load fine when I'm scrolling, and I can actually scroll the whole way to the back of the book (takes forever), but skipping chapters is broken. Please fix. Thanks.

Suchinto Roy Dhrubo

Not opening. It showed unfortunately app has stopped. I think this bug should be remove as soon as possible. Then, I'll give you 5 star...

Eugene Fr

Terrible! The button within the app got unresponsive. Can't write over existing pdf. Just tried Xodo - so much better!


Good Reader but still need fixes Previously I deleted some files from recent list and it erased my files on disk, I complained and they fixed this issue, nice to know they are listening our voice, deserve one more star, but the app still need fixes. The app doesn't recognize internet access using bluetooth tethering, Could have an option to navigate the disk files as TreeView instead a big list, and list recent used files by their Covers.

Peter Garcia

App crashes while opening! I updated it a few days later and when i try to open the app, it always shows "unfortunately, adobe acrobat has stopped". I cant even open a pdf file.


Not upto the mark.. I was in love with the Adobe Reader till 2 months back. Then after an update whenever I zoom in my pdf the words become lighter than before and I'm not able to see anything properly as the text or drawings are so light. Had adobe got any fix for this I tried all the setting changes. It works perfectly fine in my pc.

Karl Gillespie

Listening To Feedback And Constantly Improving Adobe keeps adding new features that users request and clamor for. Removing individual items from the recent list is the latest example.

Planet Unknown

This app used to be fantastic, not anymore! Options on selected texts are now limited, in older version i could select a name and easily search for more info on it. Now you can only do that via copy/paste. Sharing of selected texts is also limited compared to an older version. (Update to this review: selected words or text should be searchable on the net, through options auch as "web search" or "share" with an app, for example a dictionary.)


Working great so far on my LG G4 Had problems opening up any PDF files on the default reader app that came up, Drive PDF Viewer. Installed this and the files come up instantly and the smooth scrolling and page slider works very nicely. Two finger scroll control makes quick detail viewing really easy. Working fine so far for the reading features, have yet to explore other features for notation.

Steve Christian

Can not cope wih ariel font Since my previous review adobe hav e updated the app. Words with ariel font again. Well done and thanks for responding.

Gerald Warner

From are blank when filled out and emailed. Forms show up blank when you email them after filling them out. This has just started happening. I use this app a lot for work to send forms to my supervisor. Can you see why this is happening and fix it.

Jacques Laroche

Shoddy Software All icons on bottom bar do not work (including bookmarks, which I extensively use). When you click on any icons in that bottom bar it simply receeds, reverting to full screen. Other Issues: When bluetooth mouse is connected you can not scroll through documents with the cursor. All useful featues in side menu (such as rotate PDF) can not be accessed a) without internet, and b) without an Adobe account. Nonsense.

Danielle Burrell

I am trying to fill out an application and it can only be filled out in the Adobe Flash Format, I have tried to install on my Kindle and phone and it keeps saying it will install later. I need to fill out this application now!

Frances Stradling

Thanks. You have now ruined all my documents. All my .pdf documents are now suddenly "protected" and the titles have been replaced by a page number. And there are far far more pages than there were documents.This includes not just more personal pdfs but things like the local bus timetable which I downloaded. To access any of them I now need a Document Open password which I don't have. (At least if I ever had one I've no idea what it was). Your website is useless and offers no help at all on this.

Yu-Min Chou

Can't use comment It was my favorite app for editing school handouts, but recently I can't use the comment function on both my phone and tablets. Is it because of the newest update or what? Please check and fix it. Thank you.

Muhammad Hadier Malik

unable to use 3d features on android i am using the dc versio on desktop and the document opens fine and i can interact with 3d features perfectly but i am unable to do so in my android tab . is there is no dc version for android till yet?

murari deshmukh

Please add dictionary I want to request you to add dictionary for this reader as we get any hard word we can hold on that word and we will get its meaning because when such words encounter that time we need to go for another dictionary. So Please do this for your precious reader's

Himanshu Singh

App Stops Responding I'm using it on Moto G4 Plus. Whenever I select multiple files at once and press delete, the app stops working and it is happening everytime.

Akshat Malhotra

Improvement from previous version Hey guys dont forget to download King of Thieves? the best game Zeptolab has made yet

Samuel Teyemensah Kubi

Simple to use It's simple to use. It would be more appropriate if it possible to save copies of opened documents to local storage

Bennie Bacalso

Superb The Adobe Acrobat Reader is a must especially for researchers like myself. Research abstracts and journals are in pdf, so I need Adobe Acrobat Reader!

Mark Harwood

Needs ability to secure documents Our enterprise policy is that all pdfs must be secured with AES 256 bit encryption before being saved to the cloud. Please add some way to add protection to pdfs.

Jason Sherman

Unable to open my adobe menu I click on the menu icon and it just says it's not working. I'm also having trouble opening my PDF attachments from work my Yahoo mail keeps telling me it can't find the file to open my attachment. How do I fix this?


Slowly working than other pdf reader! Opening a pdf file taking extra time. Though the same file opening in other pdf reader faster than this app. So, please improve it for faster access. Thanks..

Prithviraj Gupta

Everything else is fine except i can't access the options which come on the bottom of the screen (like "turn night mode on") in the new update. Plz fix this bug.

Balamurali Ragupathi

I have a PDF file in which an HTML file is attached. Is there a way to open the attachments in a PDF file through this APP? I am able to open it in the desktop version of Acrobat Reader.

Michael Reidinger

A Must for Data Exchange As a scientist PDF documents are best way to distribute technical information.

Dorothy Johnson

Of all the apps that have PDF format... This has to be the best APP by far! I know your integrated with Verizon. & I DO see that your team does respond! Keep up the great work adobe! Would be nice if adobe flash was still available on ANDROID phones. But.. Thank you.

Roy Powell

Impressive And Light Compared to the other document reader apps I see, this appears to be the best. I've had experience with Adobe acrobat and it's very useful especially when it comes to viewing documents. It's lighter in comparison to other document readers' and although it may not be the lightest document reader out there, it gives fewer glitches than they do so that's a plus.????

Daniel Watson

Meh Good as a reader, I guess. However with the cloud functionality, it would be nice if we could actually move multiple things into it instead of having to move everything individually. It would also be nice to be able to actually download the things we have on the cloud. Both of these we can do with ease on PC (which I know is different, I guess, but damn man).

Johnny Casady

Newest update sucks I can no longer use night mode and the program doesn't respond properly anymore. How do I roll back one version? Adobe crippleware.

omini ogwa

Not good Since the latest update, my files don't open any more. Fix it please

mohak sheth

Suggestion! It would be really great if we are able to add annotations in reading mode. It is irritating if I have to switch modes every time I want to mark something important.

Danny Sieg

Adobe Acrobat Reader Viewing Purposes, downloaded 3 July 16. Seems to be overcoming the constraints within my Lenovo Laptop ThinkPad with the preloaded Windows Pro 10 and accompanied Explorer package. "This App has performed well above my anticipated means! Thank you Adobe." Updated: 22 Sept 16

mukesh gupta

Can't read properly mathematical article in mobile reading mode THERE ARE FOUR MODE at bottom left side (1)CONTINUOUS (2)SINGLE PAGE (3)READ MODE for mobile reading (4)NIGHT MODE BUT 3RD (READ)MODE NOT WORK. Read any technical (engineering )book with mathematical approach after enabling mobile reading mode you can easily understand our problem.(i am already explain in this text abt problem.READ IT CAREFULLY And again don't post such a childish reply "please explain problem").overall I am big fan of your softwares.

Tigran Aivazian

This PDF reader is inferior because it doesn't allow to browse your books repository as hierarchical directory structure. Instead, it presents the linear list, which is totally unmanageable if there are hundreds of thousands of books in your library. I recommend uninstalling this "software" to save storage space and use ebookdroid or orion viewer — both excellent programs written by Russians. UPDATE: Thanks for the comment from Adobe --- yes, I can now browse the directory structure, BUT when I try to open the file, Adobe Acrobat Reader always makes a local copy thereof. Why on earth does it need to do that? I understand why --- to allow the user make annotations. Being a co-author of kindlepdfviewer/koreader programs (PDF and DjVu viewers for eInk devices) I recognise this situation, but the way it was dealt with in, say, Koreader, was to have a menu option that allows the user to choose between saving annotations in the physical pdf file or saving them only in a separate metadata text file. Anyway, this is not such a major issue, so I've re-installed Adobe Acrobat Reader and am giving it four stars rather than one. Thanks to Adobe for such a quick response to my comment!


Crash It crashes every time when i open files from Dropbox. Please fix the bugs in new update ASAP. Please add support for OneDrive and Google Drive files too.

Katie Gr

It's really good for looking and highlighting downloads but whenever I try and delete a document it says that your device storage may not be writable and it's really annoying can you please fix this

Jayesh Kothari

Can't open password protected As in to business,i get all my documents with password protection, when I want to open them on phone it's a headache.

D. Harley

Ok? It is OK. I'm not too good at navigating through the app. And cannot figure out how to delete documents .

Great! A few minor improvements could be made as far as ease of use, but it's still so much better than a lot of the other pdf apps out there. I'm able to keep my documents organized and can draw, comment, and type on them. It's very useful for my university courses.


The best app with night mood This is a best app for reading PDF files, especially night mood is the best option. Thank you so so so much.

Andrew F.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Always up-to-date and I have never had a problem when using it.

John Macdonald

Solid. Adobe has been doing good work for a long time. Sometimes frustrating but overall, top shelf. Please keep it going.

Ilma Yusrina

what's up? the update make the app won't open bookmarks? what is up with that? [SOLVED] so it turned out that the app conflicted with other screen filter app that i'm using. if i turn the filter on, i can't press any bottom toolbar button, but when i turn the filter off, this app works as usual.

Useful but not great I'm sure they didn't intend for it to be great and they succeeded.

My favourite PDF viewer The options to add text, notes and highlights are very useful, as are bookmarks. Searches are also easy.
