If you use PDFs fairly often, there is good news, Adobe's popular PDF application, Adobe Reader has now hit the App Store. Despite the whole Flash versus Steve Jobs fiasco, Adobe has now brought several of their programs over to iOS and they have done a great job with them thus far. Now you may or may not have any use for this app or PDFs for that matter. However if your business relies on the PDF format for reports or manuals, this app deserves a spot on your home screen. Sharing your PDF files is made fairly simple by either sending them via email or using Apple's AirPrint to wirelessly print to your Wi-Fi connected printer. There are different types of PDFs you can use in this app including: password-protected PDF documents, PDF Portfolios and of course Adobe LiveCycle PDF files. You can quickly navigate between documents using a feature they're calling "Tap Zones." A Tap Zone is a dedicated space on the right or left side of the screen that you tap to switch between documents. To go along with this app, back in August, Adobe also released CreatePDF for iOS which will work hand in hand with Adobe Reader. You can find Adobe Reader in the App Store now, for free.
