Advanced Acrobat features

Advanced Acrobat features. If you're an Adobe Creative Cloud subscriber, just sign in with your account to unlock advanced features in the app. Like Adobe Acrobat DC on the desktop, you can edit PDF text and format, rearrange pages, create PDFs from other filetypes, fill and sign documents, and more. The best part is that you can keep your recent files in sync with your desktop through Adobe Document Cloud.

What is it about?

With the Adobe Acrobat Reader app, you can read, annotate, scan, and send PDF documents. Open existing files and mark them up with highlighting, underlining, and drawing tools. You can also add comments, use your Apple Pencil, and scan multiple document pages into one PDF. The app is easy-to-use and offers even more features via in-app purchase.

Why we love it

To read, scan, and annotate PDFs quickly and easily, check out the Adobe Acrobat Reader app.
