Adobe has finally released a PDF reader for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. There are a number of apps available in the App Store like GoodReader that allow users to open PDF files, which was quite ironic when you consider that Adobe had created the digital document standard in the early 90′s.
Adobe Reader however appears to be the first app that will allow users to view password-protected PDF documents and Adobe LiveCycle rights-managed PDF files on their iOS device.
Here’s the list of features of Adobe Reader for iOS:
View PDF files:
• Quickly open PDF files from e-mail, the Web or any application that supports “Open In…”
• View ePortfolio (PDF Portfolios), PDF Packages, annotations and drawing markups
• Read text annotations such as Sticky Notes
Access encrypted PDF files:
• Open and view password-protected PDF files
• Access files secured by Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management, which helps protect sensitive documents
• Supports the highest grade of PDF encryption, up to AES256
Interact with PDF files:
• Search text to find specific information
• Use bookmarks to jump directly to a section in your PDF file
• Select single page or continuous scroll modes
• Easily zoom in on text or images for a closer view
• Quickly navigate through large files using thumbnails
• Select and copy text from a PDF file to the clipboard
Print and Share files:
• Print wirelessly with AirPrint
• Share PDF files with other applications using “Open In…”
• Email PDF documents as attachments
