Adobe Reader Shuns iCloud In Favor Of Acrobat.com For New Cloud Storage Integration
Adobe Reader for iOS has been available for over a year now. But since its launch in the App Store, it has gotten a mere five updates. Don't get me wrong; I am in no way belittling Adobe for the apparent underdevelopment of the app. On the contrary, I want to point out that even as there are only five of them so far, the majority of these updates have been quite substantial. The latest one, which arrived just a few hours ago, is representative of this. The latest update to the universal Adobe Reader app delivers a number of improvements. The most significant among these is arguably the integration of cloud-based file storage with Acrobat.com. With this newly added integration, you can now have your PDF documents saved and synced across your devices, including your computers, over Acrobat.com. This is a nice step for Adobe Reader in its move toward the cloud. But I think it's also nice to have the option to go with iCloud instead of Acrobat.com. Perhaps an upcoming update will introduce this option.

The new version of the by-no-means-underdeveloped Adobe Reader is available now in the App Store for free. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
