Trash
by bobbabbykitty on 2020/07/04 19:46

Another privacy pirate

Can’t simply download and use. Must create an account, provide date if birth and agree to usage tracking to ‘customize’ my experience. No thanks Adobe. Piss off
Sign in to read a doc? Really??
by got conned into buying this on 2020/07/02 23:28
Forget this app. It requires a sign in. Why the hell does someone need to sign in to something just to read a doc?
My Mom
by eyemonster on 2020/07/02 14:30
My mom died two years ago. She was 101 and more than ready to go. Today I found two recordings of songs she wrote and recorded when she was in her 80s. I had forgotten they were there. You can imagine how wonderful it was to hear her songs once again because Adobe saved these precious memories sent to me by my brother. Thank You Adobe.
Not good for D&D JavaScript enabled PDFs
by Lord_bow on 2020/07/02 07:36
I’m trying to edit a D&D JavaScript enables character sheet. However I can’t edit many fields and the drop down menus don’t appear. Instead the app asks me if I want to go to a webpage, that then asks me to download the Adobe app that I’m already using to see the webpage. It makes no sense. I’m going to have to go back to pencil and paper.
关于页面显示
by Leon2078 on 2020/07/02 02:31
缺少双叶并排显示功能,虽然付费了订阅版,却不得使用。因为我使用的是11寸与12.9寸的iPad。这个功能我等待了好几年,却没想到到如今一直都没有
Underhanded Extra Fees
by UnhappyObjector on 2020/07/01 19:04
I didn’t cancel my free trial in time: fine, I’ll just pay for one month and move on. JUST KIDDING the trial automatically ushered me into a YEAR LONG MONTHLY PAYMENT COMMITMENT so when I go to cancel there’s an EARLY CANCELLATION FEE. Then the app tries to shove all these offers at me not to cancel which have MORE YEAR LONG COMMITMENTS. I don’t need a software giant to nickel and dime me. Congrats, you got me. Have fun squeezing more money out of other people with your fine print. 0/10
Excellent facilities
by Babol11 on 2020/07/01 17:23
I use Adobe for a while and I am so happy with facilities and user friendly software.
Terrible
by Smokiibear on 2020/07/01 13:01
Nothing like the desktop. It’s terrible features. Doesn’t come close to 3rd party features
Last update
by Chambo1410 on 2020/06/30 15:27
I don’t know what you did to the last update but can’t do my Expense reports anymore. Info will not fit box anymore. Don’t know what you did but needs fixed! Been using for years and love the app and really do not want to use another.
Dudas...
by Pipelon8710 on 2020/06/30 01:09
Estaba contento con la aplicación, pero ahora después de cada actualización, toca descargar todo del cloud de nuevo, y me forma conflicto con otras apps de audio que tengo abiertas, solo pasa cuando abro el acrobat y otras apps de audio
Why need an account?
by dlsapointed on 2020/06/29 07:40
Removing app. Just want to view a pdf, why is an account needed to do that? Really? Understand if wanted to store the doc in the cloud, or use other advanced features, but just to view? There are other tools. Sigh why must organizations be greedy, they think they make things easier to use, but they do not.
Lots of work for little result
by Ryanc016 on 2020/06/28 20:44
It took me less time to write this review than it took for me to open a pdf on this app. Not because of slow losing just because it has a lot of extra steps for no reason.
Wasted potential
by grantlgriffin on 2020/06/27 19:57
The software has the potential to be great, but it’s just super buggy. You guys should take notes from the music app ForeScore. The have a fantastic annotations interface. When I try to comment of PDFs in adobe, the text boxes always revert to their original locations (which typically are not the correct locations), the pencil annotations always smudge (how could this possibly happen on an electronic device????), and sometimes the pencil annotations move locations after I press “done.” These bugs sound easy to fix, yet they remain in the software. I’m using the newest iPad Pro with the newest Apple Pencil, so I am confident it is not a hardware problem. Please fix these problems.
Free?

by JOE ROSENADA on 2020/06/26 21:48
I love it. Easy to use and the full and sign feature is flawless
A waste for home use
by Roamala on 2020/06/26 19:14
This app doesn’t allow you to convert the PDF file you’ve created into a PDF saved document on your computer. To do that you need to pay $9.95 a month. Not a bad price if you’re using it for your business but if you’re retired or otherwise using it for personal use and you only need to convert a couple of files a year it it’s useless.
Will not open PDFs
by Stupid Creatures on 2020/06/26 14:25
That’s really all I can say. It doesn’t do what it was designed to do. I can open PDFs on my MacBook Pro, but this app, apparently designed for the iPad Pro, won’t open the same file that my MacBook Pro will open.I need to be able to see PDFs.

Password reset is ignorant
by SareyCanary on 2020/06/25 07:42
Your error message says I can’t use my name in my password, but you fail to make clear: I can’t use LETTERS from my name in my password!?!?!?! How does that make any sense? You might as well do away with letters and make us moo like cows. If it’s about “security” when why’s staying signed-in an option?? I tried giving private feedback but it’s impossible, so here’s your 1 star.
Garbage app, with zero help!
by Koresa907 on 2020/06/25 04:25
I don’t work with computers, so I don’t have a clue how to use it. Their “help” is basically you have to venture out and look for videos and forums to figure it out if you’re not familiar with Adobe. I don’t have the time to do the homework to learn it and print one piece of paper.
Very Helpful
by Kingsolomon_ on 2020/06/24 13:03
Acrobat mobile really helps me when I’m on the go and need to get documents that I have on my desktop emailed to a government computer. Also the scan, edit, and email option is def appreciated.
So handy and helpful!!!

No support for XFA forms
by @lpha/0meg@ on 2020/06/24 01:44
How can it be 2020 and Adobe still isn't supporting XFA forms but they can make full Photoshop which hardly anyone uses next to forms...why can't this Happen yet? Same thing on Android. I guess people on mobile devices can't fill out this ubiquitous form type.
Doesn’t work with a LOT of PDF documents
by John in Hawaii on 2020/06/24 00:49
This is the most frustrating app I’ve ever used. A lot of PDF documents just won’t open with it. But it works in some cases so I’m giving it 3 stars.

Landscape Gray Borders PLEASE REMOVE
by Trae Renfro on 2020/06/23 04:49
Love this App. I use it all the time. The only thing I would suggest to change is the gray borders in landscape. I don’t think they aesthetically pleasing to one’s eye and doesn’t serve a legitimate purpose being there. I think the best option is to make them optional to the user. Everything thing else is great. Keep it up guys!
Does not work with latest IOS update
by jah in Ramer on 2020/06/23 00:41
I updated the app and it no longer works with the latest IOS on iPads. It opens and immediately closes within 1 second.
Trial
by Chucky5150 on 2020/06/22 20:47
So far so good, I really just hate how you have to provide your info to the company for a trial and in order for them to not charge they require you to remember to cancel otherwise here comes the charges, it just kinda feels a little frustrating and invasive they should make the trial end automatically and then have a customer decide after that. Other than that I enjoy this app as is serves a lot of purpose..

Highlighting is broken
by Hhudyncia on 2020/06/21 18:52
I really only need to be able to read and highlight with this app, and the highlighter is currently broken. Instead of highlighting, it just zooms in. It was working, then stopped. It also takes a lot of taps to get to the highlighting function when it works, it would be nice if it was just 1-2, instead of 4-5.

Lost functionality
by Seventh fret on 2020/06/20 23:14
The last updates seem to have lost functionality. When I add text via comments, I can no longer choose font, font type such as bold, underline, etc. This all works on the PC version. Is it really that hard to make it work on an iPad Pro?

Can’t find bookmarking
by Danny Zh on 2020/06/20 02:07
Really this app is worth 3 stars, but who reads a 3-star review anyway. I like a lot of things about this app, but being able to bookmark is incredibly important for a reading app. I couldn’t find the bookmarking tool! I got Foxit instead, where bookmarking is clearly visible.

by samaynay on 2020/06/18 12:10
I pay $10 for it not to even work it’s honestly trash and a waste of money can’t even turn things into PDFs properly. Awful I will never spend money on this again.
A must
by Danboy420 on 2020/06/18 08:44
Adobe for the PC and my iPad sync up nicely. It’s great to be able to save locally and especially any of the major cloud platform Dropbox, google drive, etc. I spend many hours going through technical manuals, guides, specs and papers highlighting and making notes on my tablet in a comfortable horizontal position. Then I can go straight to the info I need when I’m working on desktop or laptop applying that knowledge.
Very disatisfied
by S Jansson on 2020/06/16 20:52
Purchased the Adobe Pro app so I could create PDFs. It has yet to work with any of the other apps I use. Waste of money.

Well I would have given it 5 stars but on my iPhone I cannot change the printing properties so i can copy a trifold brochure! I want it to look professional. And i cannot have that if i cannot adjust the properties at a moments notice without having to fire up my computer.. Can you fix that little glitch please? Cuz i might wanna make a trifold if my business on the fly!! Thanks!
Adobe gone bad
by psnr111 on 2020/06/15 22:37
Why has Adobe PDF become so hard to use? More sign in with password, no easy “save as pdf” like before. Now asking me to “convert” all my previous PDFs to PDF? Why has it become worse, not better?
Waste of time
by 1refused on 2020/06/15 19:39
Need to sign a document and return it, but can’t. I would think adobe could do better than this.

This app is not worth the time of day it literally takes 7 days to download. You just might have to delete everything off your phone. Make sure nothing is using the data or WiFi. Because apparently it takes everything

I do not like the update as it tells me to review and accept the new terms and when I click okay it is telling me an error occurred.
I’m actually paying for this and it is impossible to get my files to attach to email
by enanas on 2020/06/11 17:30
I have Creative Cloud on my iPad and it is almost impossible to use Acrobat because it’s impossible to browse for files to attach in email and the files will not allow me to move them to folders that I would actually be able to use. It is extremely annoying to have to start up my old computer (from 2006) and go through the whole process just to be able to send a three page PDF via email.
Pretty good.
by Firewarrior77 on 2020/06/11 00:25
Would give 5 stars if convert to PDF was free.

I deleted 12 apps off my phone for storage, started and re started my phone, downloaded and deleted it multiple times, updated to the newest ios, and still nothing. Very incompetent coding.

Cannot combined more than 12 pages at a time
by drfarhathamid on 2020/06/04 13:31
I purchased twice the monthly subscription, and tried to combined .pdf files but this adobe was not able to do Moore than 12 pages at a time. Then I subscribed to other apps, Xodo or WPS office and both of them worked perfectly fine and they combined 1000 pages at a time. Xodo is free and WPS is less costly. I was disappointed with this and I am not going to subscribe to adobe again.
$120 A Year Every Year

Runs hot and drains battery
by Nathan71592 on 2020/05/30 18:22
The app and its features work well, but it makes my Xs max get insanely hot and drains my battery really quickly. I’m talking like 30% in 20 minutes. That seems like a lot of power to read a text file. If it wasn’t for this I would rate it 5 stars easily

It’s not a typical review , but I have some issue. Lately , I try to open the app but it gives the splash screen of adobe then it returns me back to the home screen . The app refuses to open after many attempts even I have the latest update

Super handy app
by TheMacDuffs on 2020/05/01 14:06
Love this app... works wonders on an iPhone and makes so much more so much easier and obtainable via your iPhone vs having to use the computer. Can access most everything right on our phones now and even upload and forward or send most all needed documents. Can’t begin to count how many times this app have been a complete life saver! Thank you adobe! No complaints here, do wish more features where available throughout each app instead of having to open multiple apps and somewhat bounce back and forth between them, however despite that small inconvenience you have still absolutely completely saved our butts hugely several times! We’d be up s*~! Creek with out you so once again thank you for all the simplicity and conveniences you’ve brought to and made available on iPhone.
Latest updates killed me
by Camscannerfanatic on 2018/10/17 00:04
I use this app primarily for work purposes. I save all my service receipts to this app and also fill out and submit safety and order forms daily. The recent update changed alot of things. First of all, the new design I don't like. That I can get used to but it's made it more difficult to use in my opinion. Some of the buttons are not labeled now, they only have icons so I have to guess what they do until I press them and find out if I'm right or wrong. More importantly, there are functions/operations that changed. For example, sharing a file through email no longer takes the file name and automatically makes it the subject line of the email. Also, when you sort by name,files with letters now follow files with numbers. I have to scroll through a hundred files (which have dates) to get to my template (which starts with letters). So I had to through a random zero at the beginning so it's at the top. There is more I could write but I think you get my point. I realize it may sound like nitpicking but when you use the app as much as I do it becomes very annoying. I am disappointed you made such a big change and it doesn't seem to be for the better. Let's get some of this fixed so I can change this back to 5 stars.
What happened
by jior design on 2019/03/11 08:46
As a subscriber of the Adobe creative cloud I am very displeased to see the industry standard for PDF software become practically unusable! In fact Adobe Acrobat no longer works on my iPhone XS! When I choose to download or simply view a pdf file, Adobe Acrobat nor the Adobe Creative Cloud app appear in the list of apps to choose from in the iOS share to/open menu! I tried a workaround by saving the PDF file to "files" both locally and via iCloud drive then attempted to open the saved PDF file via Adobe Acrobat which incredibly failed to open with a message stating "File type unsupported"... This is unacceptable! Can't open the very file format Adobe Acrobat is meant to not only open but create and manage! Wow just wow! Not sure what is going on but Adobe is slacking with other apps as well! I'm contemplating canceling my CC subscription since $50 a month is a price only worth paying for the best and I am literally seeing more and more apps that offer more! The mobile apps are terrible besides a select few! Out of all, I never thought Acrobat would ever lose the crown but here I am having to find an alternative in order to save the PDF I need! Verbal apologies won't change the fact that I'm dishing out money for software that isn't working properly!
Very powerful, missing critical annotation feature
by DrOverbuild on 2019/09/06 02:49
This app has been great when it comes to storing, reading, and annotating documents. I’ve been using it with the Apple Pencil and I’ve noticed the drawing features are lacking support for the pencil in one key area: it takes the touch of the palm of my hand or my fingers as drawing touches. I must have the option to ignore all drawing events with my hand and just accept them from the Apple Pencil, with the exception of scrolling. I want to be able to use two of my fingers to navigate the document and the Apple Pencil strictly for drawing. Because I don’t have the option for this extended Apple Pencil support it’s difficult for tasks such as writing notes over presentation slide PDFs during the presentation. I can’t rest the palm of my hand on my iPad and write normally because it listens to finger touch events. EDIT: I have learned a day later that once you start using Apple Pencil in drawing mode, it ignores other touches, but you have to start with the pencil. Still, it would be nice to be able to scroll without leaving draw mode.
!!!horrible update!!!
by necessarynickname? on 2018/10/03 20:55
Zero stars if that were possible. I’ve never written a review before for any app, but this update is so awful that I had to comment. I have an iPad Air 2, which is not old enough to be the problem (I think). A handful of user comments after the last update are positive, but I echo the vast majority—the app freezes at the home page and I can’t access any files. At least I can open the app to see a home page with a recent files list; apparently some folks just see a spinning circle with the opening icon and never get to the home page. At first I thought my files had been deleted, as some folks complained, but since I can still see some recent file names listed on the home page, I can’t tell whether some or all files have actually been deleted. Either way, I can’t even sign in or sign up because that link on the home page doesn’t work either. Bottom line, fix it or I’m done (as are many others probably), obviously, because I can’t even access my files. Now I’m glad that I saved at least some files in other formats/apps.
Need auto-save as you work
by G.G.Lórien on 2020/02/08 17:32
Update: delete and reinstall app fixed the launch issue; back to 4 stars. Update: from 4 to 1 star. 2-2-20 app update results in app crashing on my iPad while it’s working on launching, then it just sits in the background stuck on th3 splash screen before I flick it closed. Utterly useless to me right now... Unlike Office and Google, this will not save changes as your filling in forms or annotating; will save changes only when you back out of the document to the larger document list. I have a fillable PDF I type into during a group study, and lost 1 1/2 hrs worth of work when the app crashed. I lost all that work because the info in the lecture was coming fast and furious and I didn’t have time to back out to the documents list so this particular group study PDF could save. Thought about giving it three stars because of this issue, but other than that I like the app.
Finally , I find the best PDF files app that suit me
by Tomshz on 2019/02/23 23:14
I had tried a few different PDF files and Acrobat is the best so far . It has all the features and functionalities in helping me creating , editing PDF files ; it has very simple interface and tools in guiding me to finish my works. with the Scan file app , it add more useful functions in creating PDF files ; the Acrobat cloud allows me to access my files from everywhere ; and upload to cloud to store my files securely . and Sharing the files easily to anyone . On the other hand , I find the app a bit of confusing in some area . the default language is English (UK) ; the app i was downloaded for my iphone , I can not use the app to edit or fill the files . and it require Window or Mac Version of the app to edit or fill my files. Why can the app tell me before I purchase it ? lastly , I cannt download the finished the files to my iphone or my icloud
Hate the new user interface.
by dvd587 on 2018/10/27 18:40
I loved the old user interface, everything was where it needed to be and within reach. This new UI is horrible, clunky and annoying. I especially hate being asked constantly to sign in/up for something just to use a PDF viewer. That’s all I need this app to do, look at PDFs. Not link it to social media so I can share things in the cloud with people who don’t need to see what I’m looking at. Why did you need to move the bookmarks button behind a menu at the top of the screen? It was perfect at the bottom right corner. Why do you feel the need to have me fill and sign every PDF? In case you didn’t know a manual for something doesn’t need to be filled out. Finding the right chapter in a manual or using the search function is more important than filling out non-existent fields. I especially dislike when I go to send someone something over airdrop it brings up a blank screen and reminds me I should log in for no reason, and then hit another greyed out button to bring up the native iOS transfer menu. Guess I’ll go find a new PDF viewer.
This app used to be wonderful, but now...
by GRIFFINSTE1N on 2018/10/28 20:42
...it’s terrible. It was extremely user friendly, from its organization (folders first, then separate files - this made so much sense, why would you change it?! I don’t want to have to put a number before my folders so they display before files) to its editable features (highlighting...the new colors and transparency options are terrible, seriously). If I tapped the screen while on a document, the superfluous information would go away until the screen was tapped again. Brilliant. Now, every time you scroll that information is displayed, what if I just want to read the raw document!? And seriously, it’s a PDF reader, why are you trying to fit some new mold with the design? And for the life of me, how can I delete the STUPID “Welcome” document out of my files? And why will this update not “find” text when I search through documents that the previous version would? Please revert this “improved update” to the way it was when it was useful and simple. Will definitely be switching apps if this isn’t changed.
Couldn’t live without
by Jilimac77 on 2019/01/22 15:30
This is a paid subscription however it has paid for itself several times over. It’s every important document saver with adobe cloud. It’s a must for anyone that is a multi tasker from a busy Mom to an executive. The best app that is also a must have is Adobe Scan app. That is the most convenient app I’ve ever downloaded. It can save business cards to your favorite pictures your kids have made and can print and edit better than any program. So yes I pay every month for the apps but it comes with a lot of Adobes Apps. Would most definitely recommend you won’t be disappointed. If I had one ding I wish they would put down the monthly payment. Maybe they will read this and make the change!!
Acrobat Reader.: My review
by BonnieSK on 2020/05/17 10:34
I really like using Acrobat Reader in order to save pages from the internet to be able to read or reference later and to save copies of online orders and refunds and files so that they are always available to me and I can keep them conveniently with me on my iPhone and/or iPad wherever I go without having to carry a bulky, (and extremely heavy,) amount of paperwork, and can use it to quickly access the document cloud and add attachments in pdf form to emails or messages, or open it in notes to reference it quickly on my iPhone while I’m reading something on my iPad. The only issue I had was that I hadn’t kept up with technological advances and hadn’t used the internet or pretty much anything as far as newer technology for years and so it took me some time to figure out how to use Acrobat Reader and am still figuring some things on it. I have to say that it has been fairly easy to figure it out though even without having used adobe acrobat or early version of Reader in so long. Over all I rate the basic online version that I use, without any upgrades so it’s free, as 9 out of 10, but that’s because of my lack really and I didn’t check to see if there is tutorial though either. Keep it up everyone at Adobe!! Awesome products👍👍 a Happy consumer, Bonnie K., Oregon City, Oregon
So far so bad
by adobeappuser on 2018/10/04 15:31
I was surprised today to find that the Adobe app on my iPad had been “upgraded”. From what I can to determine thus far, it appears that Adobe created This “upgraded” app to encourage the use of “the cloud”. That is all well and good. BUT Adobe might have considered its users who sometimes have reason to use the Adobe app off line before it shoved this “upgrade” down users’ throats. Prior to the Adobe “upgrade”, I had organized all my Adobe files into folders based on categories. I had several dozen files organized that way. But the “upgraded“ Adobe app wiped out all my folders. I cannot find a function in the “upgraded“ version of the Adobe app that allows me to create folders. Therefore, It will now require hours of my time to figure out how to re-organize my files in a way that Allows me to find the file I want when I want it. Very bad adobe.
Why did you destroy a great program?
by Brains1959 on 2018/11/17 11:24
This is the worst downgrade of a five star program ever. Sure programs have changed and no longer worked for certain devices or operating systems. But this no longer is not good for anyone. If you do not use it - do not download. Very very difficult to edit. Now I struggle to edit forms or to fill in forms. Used to be tap and add writing, drawing, or text. Now I must click and click and click to stumble into adding text. Also I must email a copy to myself to save unsigned version. Before I easily would make a duplicate of a file then have customer sign the duplicate. Now you do not have duplicate function. It is harder to email a copy to customer it tries to get them to view or share a cloud version. I can’t imagine how it appears to a customer. New version is also uglier on screen with less color than old version. They are also trying to force us to use their cloud service. Please fire the idiot who did this - the CEO if need be. Then bring back a version similar to the old one.
Fast, smooth but could be better (after update: bad)
by YinghaoS on 2018/11/27 01:05
This app is very fast, clear and smooth. But there are still some features missing: 1. Bookmarks can't be created 2. It's better to have a webpage like top bank to switch between opened books quickly 3. Can't show the list of past comments made Also an annoying little bug: when you switch to other app and back (even after you go to the home screen), the zoom in disappeared and the file return to its original size. So I need to zoom in again to kill the white margins. (the zoom in will stay if you zoomed in 120% or above though) (A comment: although it's been 2 years, those features are still missing. But I'm still stick to it because it's elegant, and robust to things it promised to do.) =============== After the update, which is a radical new design, a lot of things changed. First of all it can’t open, after many tries it finally opened. Then it can finally show past comments which is good, and do global search. That is the only two things pleasing. All else feels bad. The app is slower to scroll documents, it’s harder to make comment or edit file, you need to click more buttons, it’s very annoying that when you scroll up, the file title will show up, it’s not a web browser! It’s harder to view bookmarks, again you need do more clicking. A comment said who design the new version should be fired, lol, I am also surprised since it’s Adobe who made it.
I used to love this app before the most recent update
by Too much travel on 2018/10/04 22:35
I have loved using the Adobe Acrobat app for many years. It has improved over time and has many wonderful features that the desktop edition has. Using the app has been easy, almost instinctive, until now. Nothing is easy to do anymore. The typeface is light and difficult to read for those of us who no longer have 20/20 vision. I’m still trying to figure out how to move a group of files (used to be really easy). I know that the performance is supposed to be improved but scrolling through lists of files and folders seems slower. May be I’ll update this review after using the new update for a while.
New update hindrance to annotation
by Mr.Culbertson on 2018/10/02 20:53
For users annotating PDFs the pen tool’s thickness has been scaled up with no smaller option, making it impossible to write small annotations in margins with Apple pencil. Further, comments and drawings are not saved automatically. Previously users could go between local copies of their documents and have all annotations saved. Now we have no choice but to save in the cloud to retain changes, and see two copies show up in our library? Lastly, tools have an added step and have been miniaturized and placed on the top pane, after tapping the blue pen icon in the bottom right. This update totally baffles me; why make an update that reduces functionality save the addition of cloud improvements? If this isn’t fixed I’ll be using a third party app. I had loved Adobe Reader for its clean UI and superior aesthetic when annotating documents. Why this update?
Issues with sharing pdf files
by Kalon Williamson on 2018/10/12 18:34
I’m not sure what to rate it because I know that nobody’s perfect and updates often times have bugs that need to be worked out. I’m not sure how many others are experiencing the same issue I’m having with sharing pdf’s, but whenever I fill-in some information on a pdf. and while I’m in the process of sharing that file........whatever information I fill-in the pdf with will normally look extremely out of place as far as where I originally placed it. Aside from that, there’s no way of knowing if I’m sharing a “flattened copy” or one that can be edited like the options we had prior to the update. I love using Adobe for what it’s previously been able to for various things. Thank you for this app but if at all possible, can someone check into this matter as soon as possible please? Thank you in advance. 🕎 Shalom
THE ultimate PDF viewer
by Souporstarv on 2019/12/27 03:20
Adobe invented the PDF format so that a file looked the same on a PC or Macintosh or even a Unix system. Ofcourse you must have the correct fonts and the correct font sizes installed, which anyone with enough experience involving PDF files has run into from time to time, which when absent can occasionally make hip modern art out of an instruction manual or other document. But it’s usually pretty easy to find missing fonts online, taking a matter of minutes for Adobe to locate thee correct fonts, and nine times out of ten you have all the necessary fonts already installed, especially if you’re a regular user of the App!
Overall good but need a few improvements
by Kwlman2345 on 2017/12/26 03:01
The app itself is good for iPad user but still need a few major improvements. I am a student and I frequently use it to mark up my PDF using Apple Pencil. The app doesn’t have palm rejection that is seen in OneNote, which is definitely a bummer. Also, what what really makes a difference b/w a good and a great app for student is being able to scroll with finger and write/highlight with Apple Pencil. I find myself being slowed down my task whenever I want to switch b/w scroll and write/highlight. OneNote somehow has this feature figured out. Lastly, whenever you try to add a text in your PDF, we can’t type directly onto the PDF since we are brought to another window. It will be way more convenient if we can do that. Thank you again! Keep working at it :)
Good app but useful feature removed.
by FLLH122318 on 2018/10/11 11:54
Useful app. Would have given 5 stars but once they changed it so that you need to download a separate app to use the scan feature it makes it more annoying to use because I use mostly to mark up scanned paperwork or photos. You now have to scan in the other app then wait for it to load into the cloud then use the scan app to open in adobe. 90% of the time i have to load it twice because it doesn’t work the first time when pushing the open in adobe app. Wish they would bring back the scan feature in this app it makes no sense. The scan app alone is good for some people but when need to scan and edit it makes it more difficult. Overall you can still accomplish the same task but it’s now more difficult.
Just a feedback on one of your feature
by Name is taken so whatever on 2019/04/16 04:05
Hi developing team, I realize that a feature in this app is that while reading through a pdf file, a click on the top panel (where the time and date is) will send the user back to the first page. I understand the convenience this feature provided, but at the same time would like to point out that a sloppy user like myself often touches the top bar accidentally quite often. For instance, when I read intently, I hold the top and bottom side of my iPad together, or have my elbow over. This accidental touches send me back to the first page. It’s an exasperation to try to find my way back. As you can see, when reading a document hundred pages long, worse with an added deadline, a few of this trips certainly translates into frustration. I wonder if you have a switch somewhere to turn this feature off. If not I know your engineers will take this feedback and come up with something way smarter than we expected. As I enjoy using your app and plan to use it in the long term, your consideration of this feedback will tremendously improve my experience. Thanks for providing this useful app, as well as taking this feedback into consideration.
Note Taking Function Seriously Lacking
by j1524 on 2018/10/10 02:41
Many of my professors use PDFs for their lecture slides. I was hoping to use this app on my iPad to directly take notes on the slides with my stylus, but the note taking functions are lacking and pretty impractical. There are no multitouch functions, like using 2 fingers to scroll while in the note taking mode. You are stuck on the screen you have when you enter into note taking mode, and have to exit every time you wish to scroll. Most infuriating however is there is NO ERASER. Why is there no eraser? The only way I can erase is by hitting the undo button over and over. And if there is something I wrote early on in my notes that I would like to erase or edit, I can’t find a simple way to do so. These are simple, essential functions to taking notes. I can’t imagine they would be too difficult to implement.
Edits to PDF on Box do not save (Fixed with Restart)
by Mikedelic on 2017/08/31 15:12
Edits made to PDF on Box used to save back to Box when file is closed. But now they are not. This appears to be specifically happening on iPad. Update: Restarting the iPad appears to have resolved the issue. This should be communicated during app updates. Normally, a restart is not required. Many of my colleagues are having this same issue, so the fact that a restart is required in order to regain full functionality is maybe something you can include in your app update notes. I think many of us take for granted the fact that we use devices every day that do not have be booted up or restarted. So if a restart must be performed, it would help to be notified of this.
Useful but lacking
by Blue8haze on 2018/01/22 17:24
I use this a lot to mark up PDFs but there a few UI improvements needed. Needs an erase tool to remove free hand marks, needs a setting to only recognize Apple Pencil to avoid stray marks, needs the ability to choose thickness and color before starting to draw (this is available on my Note 8 but not iPad version). Saving back to google drive should be as easy as saving back to Dropbox. I think there needs to be a Pro version and Reader version just like on desktops. There is no reason why the iPad Pro can’t handle a pro version. Update: since updating to latest version I’ve been receiving a message that my document is read only whenever I try to comment on it. If I close and reopen everything is fine for a few minutes. Reduced 1 star because of this.
Not a fan of the latest update!
by Jillsjingles on 2018/10/09 17:56
I’ve used Adobe Acrobat reader for a few years. Most of my time is spent in the evening or at night. The night reading mode is always on, but with the new update, is not available. They’re response is to go to your settings and turn it on the device. If you use your tablet for anything else, that doesn’t work. In order to use the app now with night reading mode, I need to go through a four-step process, only to repeat the process when I’m finished. That is frustrating. Another issue is that pages don’t load correctly, or can’t be reformatted in reading mode that could be prior to updating the app. I hope to see fixes for these issues soon. Normally, I thoroughly enjoy using this app over my other options.
Seems to be glitching
by nokaboy on 2018/08/16 14:26
I’ve used adobe acrobat reader for years to read knitting pattern PDFs but lately it’s been having this annoying glitch. When the page loads it doesn’t seem to completely finish. Most of the pdf is there but there are a few extra large stretched letters and a few gaps in the script. It’s frustrating because missing a line when you are knitting mean having to go back and fix it when you realize the error. I’ve tried checking for updates to fix the problem several times. I’ve also closed and reopened the app as well as just restarting my phone. I even tried it on my tablet to see if it’s my phone and it’s doing it on there as well. Fix this problem and the app would be a full 5 stars again.
Not sure of the need for the new update
by Stetofire on 2018/10/27 20:07
I really like this app and it being free is a super bonus, but this version brought some design changes that didn't seem necessary. Honestly, the UI of the previous update was spectacular. Sure, there are always improvements that can be made with applications, but I was very satisfied with it and you guys changed it a lot. The one nitpick I have that really prompted this review was the 'Bookmarks' button. I used it all the time because I have some open source textbook PDFs that I got for class, but now it's hidden in a menu and replaced by options I've never used once. If there was an opportunity to configure the toolbar myself, I'd be fine with the other changes.
Why?
by vhdave on 2017/12/17 17:32
Update: Adobe! Thanks for listening to me. It’s fixed on my end. And it’s users like me who forget that every little thing on software takes a human touch. And it needs to be perfect or people like me will complain. Thanks for updating this, it great! 👍 Why is it every time I open a document in the adobe app it walks me through a 4 step getting started menu? This happens at least once a week, then I need to find the document I’m using out of the long list. I understand the getting started menu when you update the app or when it’s brand new... but I am seeing this all the time. It’s an unnecessary extra step.
Useful but can be improved
by KatherinePierce7 on 2018/10/18 08:18
I really like this application because of how lightweight and useful it is. I mostly need this application to annotate PDFs with my Apple Pencil and take notes on them, but I think accessing the annotation menu is not as intuitive and simple as it could be. You have to touch the edit icon, and then comment, whereas instead of that you could just have a more accessible button to show the options for different annotation tools. Also I can’t find any option to erase the text that I write with pencil, I have to use the undo button which doesn’t do what I want exactly, because I might want to partially erase something or erase something not in the reverse order of writing it.
Google Account Integration
by Craigwd_2000 on 2019/04/24 18:43
For one have two different personal Google Accounts and currently the app only allows me to add one account and there doesn’t appear to actually be any other way in the app’s main user interface to selectively add another Google account to import more PDF files from and I really wish I could do so too. Add this feature and I will definitely give this app four out of five stars too. It would also really be nice to be able to sort my documents alphabetically like the Default used to be in previous Mobile Adobe Reader stable maintenance release versions of this particular app too. Also the aforementioned account adding wizard should allow a second chance to link your Facebook account to this app too.
This app was great before this latest update.
by V.R.U.S.P. on 2018/11/10 07:45
I never write reviews but felt like I just had to in this case. I use the app to grade papers and it was really helpful and easy to use. Then they monkeyed around with it, and now it’s counterintuitive and cumbersome. What used to take two actions, now takes three or four. I used to be able to add comments to the papers by tapping the screen where I wanted the comment to be, then selecting text and typing it in. Now I have to tap the pencil icon, select comment, select type, then tap the screen where the comment should go (but don’t hold your finger on the screen too long or it doesn’t come up) then type the comment. Then I have to tap post. If I want to edit the comment, I tap it and a dialogue box comes up, but the edit choice is hidden in a menu accessed by tapping an ellipse. Once I’ve made my edits, if I tap anywhere but directly on the “post” button, the edits I’ve made disappear and I have to recreate them. The same goes for navigating to my files. It used to open up in the main folder of my Dropbox where I keep the papers. Now it opens up in some folder of recent files and I have to tap “Locations” which is not prominently displayed, to get to my Outlook folder. It Byzantine, and just complicates my job.
Apple Software Glitch
by Mattmorg2 on 2018/01/29 02:55
Update - Ap has been updated and bugs repaired. Thank you for actually listening! When opening the app, at first works fine. However, if you momentarily look at another app, for example attempt to copy and paste a reference from another source and paste into this app, the program will not allow this function. You have to close the app completely and reopen. Same problem happens if attempting to highlight or underline. A warning box appears and says your document is a read only when it isn’t. Very frustrating. Avoid this app until repaired.
Destructive Update
by SpreadEagle10 on 2019/02/06 22:34
The most recent update has made this previously wonderful and productive app completely useless! Can’t convert files...tells me to subscribe, then tells me I can’t because I am a subscriber, which I’ve been for years, then sends a me back to the unconverted file. Edits and form filling only get saved sometimes and when they do they don’t make it to a shared document. I travel frequently and this is, or has been, one of my most used apps...no more...I spent an hour trying to fill and share a document yesterday only to have it so corrupted my email system wouldn’t deliver it... Update...since my last not go hot review it has only become more frustrating to use this app. While a 2nhour back and forth with Apple and Adobe got the subscription figured out I still can’t move a file that is on my iPad to a folder in the cloud...STUPID!
Bad UX for iPad app, kindle fire 10X better.
by Agongaz on 2019/10/05 03:51
I previously had a kindle fire and I used it very often, that adobe app on the kindle worked perfectly, specific it was more feature rich and very responsive experience, moreover I could specify to download the pdf documents on the device, however, I cannot say the same about this application, it has been utterly frustrating. From the instance where I am constantly logged out,on my own device, and I have to religiously in and redo load all the documents I. This is bull****! And it is unacceptable for a an established application to display such starter glitches and issues. I am requesting changes to be made as follows, include the option to have a two page view, have the option to save the documents on device, remove the issue( or whatever you call it) of being constantly logged out.
Worst Update Ever Release in iTUNES
by K.Cart3r27 on 2018/11/03 13:07
I use to love adobe prior to the recent update. I would use this app daily for work and was my primary go to pdf app; 100% of our reports are digital so make sending to customers easier and more professional looking. AFTER the new release it is no longer user friendly, what I would use to hit it upload PDFs now wants me to get a subscription for. You can still upload but seems to me more steps to do so. It was so frustrating trying to figure out the new app I no longer use it. If i had more drive i would explain more issues but no need since i see plenty of other reviews that agree with me regarding the update. -My new choice of pdf app is “PSPDFKIT pdf viewer” when you check it out you will not be disappointed. To Adobe: complete fail, give us the option to revert back prior to update.
Adobe doesn't allow other apps to multitask
by Jeannedb on 2017/09/25 12:39
Like a previous reviewer, I was sick of this app opening on the right side anytime I got close to swiping anything on the right part of my iPad screen. An Adobe Acrobat sidebar opens and I see a list of my locally saved documents. The previous reviewer indicated that Adobe offered a fix of turning off Multitasking under the general tab. That would be fine if you definitely don't want any multitasking to show up. But here's the thing--While Acrobat is installed, no other apps will show up if you swipe from the right -- only Acrobat. If you are in Acrobat and swipe from the right, you can see the apps that are normally supposed to show up as part of multi-tasking. It looks like a nice feature. The problem is, you can't have that feature and Acrobat too. For now I will turn off multi-tasking because if I delete Acrobat, I lose my documents. After I take the time to back them up in another app, then I will dump Acrobat until they fix this situation. The other reviewer decided it was the fault of iOS, but I have to disagree. At the very least, Acrobat should find a way to turn off their own multi-tasking within their own app.
Once a standard, now a Disappointment
by PDF-ed in Wisconsin on 2019/05/14 23:13
Acrobat Reader was once the standard utility that greased the e-cogs of the digital document sharing world. However, since the advent of the Document Cloud model, where you can’t use the app without creating an account, it has ceased to be utilitarian for any organization larger than one or two people. It’s great if you want to use their cloud offering, but so many orgs just need to view, create, and combine PDFs, and not share via yet another cloud with yet another account, that it becomes unworkable. Reader has walked away from its natural market stronghold. The document sorting and organizing capabilities of Reader on iPad have been completely abandoned for no identifiable reason that I can find. Hope you like their one sort option, because that’s all you get. Soviet software would have offered more options.
Please help me

Customer Service is Absent and worthless
by Phillis phan on 2019/08/22 21:59
Have been using Acrobat on iPad for a year or so and was happy to see editing features become available, even if they came with a $4.99/month Premium fee. After purchasing the upgrade through the Apple’s App Store, the program froze during the “registering the upgrade”. I rebooted the iPad because the program was froze. After reboot, and launching Acrobat again, the premium features were still not available, and when prompted to subscribe to them (again), was left with a message that i was already subscribed. So.....subscribed and charged for a service that is not functioning, and no customer support to remedy. No phone support and bounced between 3 different parties on “chat support” with no resolution. Was told by the third representative to try a forum for a solution.
One annoying glitch
by cathyincv on 2018/10/07 18:31
This app is mostly good, but I’ve been creating a form in Acrobat Pro DC (generated over a Word document) and I’m finding the form filling capabilities are making my current form unusable on the iPad. I have some date fields that in certain cases are not required, but if you tab into those date fields, it seems impossible to clear the date. You have no choice but to allow some date to remain, and resetting the field doesn’t work. The pop up calendar in the date field seemed cool on my desktop but fails in IOS. It’s a small thing since I can just use a normal text field as I used to but I thought it’s worth mentioning. Maybe I’m just doing something wrong.
Major downgrade!
by TheTigerMom on 2018/10/09 00:51
Adobe Acrobat Reader was my life support for work. Before this last update nothing compared to the ease of using the app & I was totally dependent on Adobe. This new update has removed the alphabetical tabs formerly used to access files quickly. Consequently, I am forced to scroll through my files without the the ability to go straight to a set of documents commencing with a particular letter of the alphabet. Inevitably this leads to the app freezing forcing me to close the app & relaunch. Now, the easiest way to locate a document in the event that I know it’s name is to go to search as access to folders to view contents has diminished. Frustration doesn’t cover the distress of not being able to do what I once was able to before this update! THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE OLD VERSION!!!! Please fix it!
Love it but 2 recent problems
by a deacon on 2018/08/06 13:33
I really love this app and am a long time user but 2 recent problems are making it difficult to use. Using IOS 11x on iPad 6. 1 - Perhaps this is a Google problem but when using Google through Safari to search and open a PDF file, there are no options to download the file. No options appear when you touch the file. I had to go to my PC to download a recent file. Have not been able to download other PDFs on iPad as well. 2 - When you go to move a file to a folder, the list of folders is no longer in alphabetical order. Please fix. Thank you.
Highlights trouble
by fmeireles on 2018/10/15 14:13
I just bought an iPad Pro to my work, and as I have a lot of high way project to review I decide to use notes and highlights from Adobe, that’s is really cool feature if you have those iPencil. So, said that, I start highlighting, handwriting, you know... so after several hours, a lot of work done, when I start my review, for my surprise almost all files that I’ve been work so many hours, couldn’t open, and another’s just was missing parts. It was frustrating. Anyway, I couldn’t discovery what happened, but I’m work now with everything saved on my iPad Pro, instead my cloud.
Absolute downgrade
by AriaADB on 2018/10/05 17:40
I am writing this only because I like AdobeReader and want its good feature to be back. The new design lack some of the features that I loved. I will give three examples: 1. The ability to concisely select 1 of four opacities for your highlights. Don’t get me wrong I believe the continuum should exist as an option for opacity setting, but we are nor painting after all, and the previous method was much more effective and should be brought back. 2. No alphabet-initial-bar, so that you can go straight to the pdfs with that initial. 3. The ability you adjust your highlights. Why on earth did you remove that? In addition to these losses, the application becomes too laggy which cause difficulties in navigation and frequently fails to show some thumbnails. This wasn’t the case in previous versions. And personally, I find the new features rarely used and the design to be less intuitive, for example, I don’t like the placement of bookmarks. I hope you fix these “issues” soon and improve my experience with your great product.
Wishing to Create Fillable PDF Forms on iPad
by A. Anu on 2019/07/24 20:46
I appreciate the current functions available via the Adobe Acrobat App(s) for iPad. For work, we do have a subscription to Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, and I didn’t realize that I did not need to buy the add-on pack called “PDF Pack - Doc Creator” because it is included in the Adobe Acrobat Pro DC subscription, so I accidentally spent $9.99 when I didn’t need to.. oops! My curiosity of the “PDF Pack - Doc Creator” was an effort to discover if the pack addition offered the function of creating Fillable PDF Forms on iPad. So far, I do not believe that you can create a Fillable PDF Form in the Adobe Acrobat (Pro DC subscription)/PDF Pack - Doc Creator APP with a 2018 iPad Pro iOS 12.4. I really wish this function were available. I also understand that most people probably have both a personal computer/laptop in addition to an iPad, so it probably isn’t a big deal. It would just be such a useful and helpful function to also be able to create this way on iPad :) Thanks for reading :)
What Happened?!!!
by Jackie_Ohh on 2018/10/17 08:50
Anyone else got app recommendations that I can use instead of this one? I used to use this app on a regular basis for work purposes. I used it on an iPad to fill in forms we converted into PDFs. It was very easy to use. Now, it is a complete mess! I used to be able to copy and rename files but now I can’t seem to have the option for that. I also dislike that I had to create an account to email the forms. That alone was hard as heck because the verification email wasn’t getting through my work email. After several failed attempts, I finally used my personal email and it worked (although it did not give me the option to send a flat copy). However, I do not want to associate my personal email to this account. Yes, I checked my junk and spam folder.
Doesn’t work the same on every device
by _DoubleRR on 2020/04/09 18:03
I recently downloaded this for my iPad,MacBook, and iPhone. It works well on both Mac and iPhone but on iPad it’s a little odd. Especially when it comes to signing in. I have a adobe account that’s basically linked to my gmail account. I access my account and read my books and documents saved to this account on my MacBook and iPhone but I can’t even access my account on my iPad. I notice that on iPad we actually don’t have the option of using our gmail or there login options that maybe link to our adobe accounts. I’m not sure if this is a glitch with the app or just a personal experience for me...but yeah that’s my feedback.
Doesn’t work
by CheriMo on 2020/03/09 17:33
I had to purchase another application to be able to print PDFs on my mobile devices because all this version does is CRASH. I see where Adobe replied to another reviewer complaining about the same issue I’m having, not being able to open the very files that this software was designed to manage, and they blamed the file or the user as this software "is intended to work". Well intentions don’t cut it. If the problem were with the files or the way the user was saving the file, no software would be able to open the file. I paid $6 for other software just so I could manage to print my PDFs with access to the printer options because this software just crashes. Come on Adobe, get your act together!

Sign in to read a doc? Really??
by got conned into buying this on 2020/07/02 23:28
Forget this app. It requires a sign in. Why the hell does someone need to sign in to something just to read a doc?
My Mom
by eyemonster on 2020/07/02 14:30
My mom died two years ago. She was 101 and more than ready to go. Today I found two recordings of songs she wrote and recorded when she was in her 80s. I had forgotten they were there. You can imagine how wonderful it was to hear her songs once again because Adobe saved these precious memories sent to me by my brother. Thank You Adobe.
Not good for D&D JavaScript enabled PDFs
by Lord_bow on 2020/07/02 07:36
I’m trying to edit a D&D JavaScript enables character sheet. However I can’t edit many fields and the drop down menus don’t appear. Instead the app asks me if I want to go to a webpage, that then asks me to download the Adobe app that I’m already using to see the webpage. It makes no sense. I’m going to have to go back to pencil and paper.

Underhanded Extra Fees
by UnhappyObjector on 2020/07/01 19:04
I didn’t cancel my free trial in time: fine, I’ll just pay for one month and move on. JUST KIDDING the trial automatically ushered me into a YEAR LONG MONTHLY PAYMENT COMMITMENT so when I go to cancel there’s an EARLY CANCELLATION FEE. Then the app tries to shove all these offers at me not to cancel which have MORE YEAR LONG COMMITMENTS. I don’t need a software giant to nickel and dime me. Congrats, you got me. Have fun squeezing more money out of other people with your fine print. 0/10
Excellent facilities
by Babol11 on 2020/07/01 17:23
I use Adobe for a while and I am so happy with facilities and user friendly software.
Terrible
by Smokiibear on 2020/07/01 13:01
Nothing like the desktop. It’s terrible features. Doesn’t come close to 3rd party features
Last update
by Chambo1410 on 2020/06/30 15:27
I don’t know what you did to the last update but can’t do my Expense reports anymore. Info will not fit box anymore. Don’t know what you did but needs fixed! Been using for years and love the app and really do not want to use another.
Dudas...
by Pipelon8710 on 2020/06/30 01:09
Estaba contento con la aplicación, pero ahora después de cada actualización, toca descargar todo del cloud de nuevo, y me forma conflicto con otras apps de audio que tengo abiertas, solo pasa cuando abro el acrobat y otras apps de audio
Why need an account?
by dlsapointed on 2020/06/29 07:40
Removing app. Just want to view a pdf, why is an account needed to do that? Really? Understand if wanted to store the doc in the cloud, or use other advanced features, but just to view? There are other tools. Sigh why must organizations be greedy, they think they make things easier to use, but they do not.
Lots of work for little result
by Ryanc016 on 2020/06/28 20:44
It took me less time to write this review than it took for me to open a pdf on this app. Not because of slow losing just because it has a lot of extra steps for no reason.
Wasted potential
by grantlgriffin on 2020/06/27 19:57
The software has the potential to be great, but it’s just super buggy. You guys should take notes from the music app ForeScore. The have a fantastic annotations interface. When I try to comment of PDFs in adobe, the text boxes always revert to their original locations (which typically are not the correct locations), the pencil annotations always smudge (how could this possibly happen on an electronic device????), and sometimes the pencil annotations move locations after I press “done.” These bugs sound easy to fix, yet they remain in the software. I’m using the newest iPad Pro with the newest Apple Pencil, so I am confident it is not a hardware problem. Please fix these problems.
Free?

A waste for home use
by Roamala on 2020/06/26 19:14
This app doesn’t allow you to convert the PDF file you’ve created into a PDF saved document on your computer. To do that you need to pay $9.95 a month. Not a bad price if you’re using it for your business but if you’re retired or otherwise using it for personal use and you only need to convert a couple of files a year it it’s useless.
Will not open PDFs
by Stupid Creatures on 2020/06/26 14:25
That’s really all I can say. It doesn’t do what it was designed to do. I can open PDFs on my MacBook Pro, but this app, apparently designed for the iPad Pro, won’t open the same file that my MacBook Pro will open.I need to be able to see PDFs.

Password reset is ignorant
by SareyCanary on 2020/06/25 07:42
Your error message says I can’t use my name in my password, but you fail to make clear: I can’t use LETTERS from my name in my password!?!?!?! How does that make any sense? You might as well do away with letters and make us moo like cows. If it’s about “security” when why’s staying signed-in an option?? I tried giving private feedback but it’s impossible, so here’s your 1 star.
Garbage app, with zero help!
by Koresa907 on 2020/06/25 04:25
I don’t work with computers, so I don’t have a clue how to use it. Their “help” is basically you have to venture out and look for videos and forums to figure it out if you’re not familiar with Adobe. I don’t have the time to do the homework to learn it and print one piece of paper.
Very Helpful
by Kingsolomon_ on 2020/06/24 13:03
Acrobat mobile really helps me when I’m on the go and need to get documents that I have on my desktop emailed to a government computer. Also the scan, edit, and email option is def appreciated.
So handy and helpful!!!

No support for XFA forms
by @lpha/0meg@ on 2020/06/24 01:44
How can it be 2020 and Adobe still isn't supporting XFA forms but they can make full Photoshop which hardly anyone uses next to forms...why can't this Happen yet? Same thing on Android. I guess people on mobile devices can't fill out this ubiquitous form type.
Doesn’t work with a LOT of PDF documents
by John in Hawaii on 2020/06/24 00:49

Landscape Gray Borders PLEASE REMOVE
by Trae Renfro on 2020/06/23 04:49
Love this App. I use it all the time. The only thing I would suggest to change is the gray borders in landscape. I don’t think they aesthetically pleasing to one’s eye and doesn’t serve a legitimate purpose being there. I think the best option is to make them optional to the user. Everything thing else is great. Keep it up guys!
Does not work with latest IOS update
by jah in Ramer on 2020/06/23 00:41
I updated the app and it no longer works with the latest IOS on iPads. It opens and immediately closes within 1 second.
Trial
by Chucky5150 on 2020/06/22 20:47
So far so good, I really just hate how you have to provide your info to the company for a trial and in order for them to not charge they require you to remember to cancel otherwise here comes the charges, it just kinda feels a little frustrating and invasive they should make the trial end automatically and then have a customer decide after that. Other than that I enjoy this app as is serves a lot of purpose..

Highlighting is broken
by Hhudyncia on 2020/06/21 18:52
I really only need to be able to read and highlight with this app, and the highlighter is currently broken. Instead of highlighting, it just zooms in. It was working, then stopped. It also takes a lot of taps to get to the highlighting function when it works, it would be nice if it was just 1-2, instead of 4-5.

The last updates seem to have lost functionality. When I add text via comments, I can no longer choose font, font type such as bold, underline, etc. This all works on the PC version. Is it really that hard to make it work on an iPad Pro?

Really this app is worth 3 stars, but who reads a 3-star review anyway. I like a lot of things about this app, but being able to bookmark is incredibly important for a reading app. I couldn’t find the bookmarking tool! I got Foxit instead, where bookmarking is clearly visible.

by samaynay on 2020/06/18 12:10
I pay $10 for it not to even work it’s honestly trash and a waste of money can’t even turn things into PDFs properly. Awful I will never spend money on this again.
A must
by Danboy420 on 2020/06/18 08:44
Adobe for the PC and my iPad sync up nicely. It’s great to be able to save locally and especially any of the major cloud platform Dropbox, google drive, etc. I spend many hours going through technical manuals, guides, specs and papers highlighting and making notes on my tablet in a comfortable horizontal position. Then I can go straight to the info I need when I’m working on desktop or laptop applying that knowledge.
Very disatisfied

Well I would have given it 5 stars but on my iPhone I cannot change the printing properties so i can copy a trifold brochure! I want it to look professional. And i cannot have that if i cannot adjust the properties at a moments notice without having to fire up my computer.. Can you fix that little glitch please? Cuz i might wanna make a trifold if my business on the fly!! Thanks!
Adobe gone bad
by psnr111 on 2020/06/15 22:37
Why has Adobe PDF become so hard to use? More sign in with password, no easy “save as pdf” like before. Now asking me to “convert” all my previous PDFs to PDF? Why has it become worse, not better?
Waste of time
by 1refused on 2020/06/15 19:39
Need to sign a document and return it, but can’t. I would think adobe could do better than this.

by findsonethingbetter on 2020/06/12 06:47
This app is not worth the time of day it literally takes 7 days to download. You just might have to delete everything off your phone. Make sure nothing is using the data or WiFi. Because apparently it takes everything
Do not like update
by Lelebaby55 on 2020/06/11 22:25
I do not like the update as it tells me to review and accept the new terms and when I click okay it is telling me an error occurred.
I’m actually paying for this and it is impossible to get my files to attach to email
by enanas on 2020/06/11 17:30
I have Creative Cloud on my iPad and it is almost impossible to use Acrobat because it’s impossible to browse for files to attach in email and the files will not allow me to move them to folders that I would actually be able to use. It is extremely annoying to have to start up my old computer (from 2006) and go through the whole process just to be able to send a three page PDF via email.
Pretty good.
by Firewarrior77 on 2020/06/11 00:25
Would give 5 stars if convert to PDF was free.

That’s all you need to know. Forget other so-called PDF programs. This is the best one, period.
Bad Optimization
by JohnFloores on 2020/06/07 19:03
Good reader, but on iPad my documents that take less than half a gigabyte somehow use 13gb storage. Something’s wrong and I have to keep deleting the app to reset the storage issue

Horrible

I have an iPhone 7 and I am unable to open the app. Every time I tap on it, it loads for about 30 seconds and then kick me off. I’ve tried everything. I deleted 12 apps off my phone for storage, started and re started my phone, downloaded and deleted it multiple times, updated to the newest ios, and still nothing. Very incompetent coding.

Cannot combined more than 12 pages at a time
by drfarhathamid on 2020/06/04 13:31
I purchased twice the monthly subscription, and tried to combined .pdf files but this adobe was not able to do Moore than 12 pages at a time. Then I subscribed to other apps, Xodo or WPS office and both of them worked perfectly fine and they combined 1000 pages at a time. Xodo is free and WPS is less costly. I was disappointed with this and I am not going to subscribe to adobe again.
$120 A Year Every Year

The fact that they have the audacity to make anyone pay $120 a year for something you should only have to buy once is disgusting. Shame on them.

Runs hot and drains battery
by Nathan71592 on 2020/05/30 18:22
The app and its features work well, but it makes my Xs max get insanely hot and drains my battery really quickly. I’m talking like 30% in 20 minutes. That seems like a lot of power to read a text file. If it wasn’t for this I would rate it 5 stars easily
The app crashed when I try to open

Super handy app
by TheMacDuffs on 2020/05/01 14:06
Love this app... works wonders on an iPhone and makes so much more so much easier and obtainable via your iPhone vs having to use the computer. Can access most everything right on our phones now and even upload and forward or send most all needed documents. Can’t begin to count how many times this app have been a complete life saver! Thank you adobe! No complaints here, do wish more features where available throughout each app instead of having to open multiple apps and somewhat bounce back and forth between them, however despite that small inconvenience you have still absolutely completely saved our butts hugely several times! We’d be up s*~! Creek with out you so once again thank you for all the simplicity and conveniences you’ve brought to and made available on iPhone.
Latest updates killed me
by Camscannerfanatic on 2018/10/17 00:04
I use this app primarily for work purposes. I save all my service receipts to this app and also fill out and submit safety and order forms daily. The recent update changed alot of things. First of all, the new design I don't like. That I can get used to but it's made it more difficult to use in my opinion. Some of the buttons are not labeled now, they only have icons so I have to guess what they do until I press them and find out if I'm right or wrong. More importantly, there are functions/operations that changed. For example, sharing a file through email no longer takes the file name and automatically makes it the subject line of the email. Also, when you sort by name,files with letters now follow files with numbers. I have to scroll through a hundred files (which have dates) to get to my template (which starts with letters). So I had to through a random zero at the beginning so it's at the top. There is more I could write but I think you get my point. I realize it may sound like nitpicking but when you use the app as much as I do it becomes very annoying. I am disappointed you made such a big change and it doesn't seem to be for the better. Let's get some of this fixed so I can change this back to 5 stars.
What happened
by jior design on 2019/03/11 08:46
As a subscriber of the Adobe creative cloud I am very displeased to see the industry standard for PDF software become practically unusable! In fact Adobe Acrobat no longer works on my iPhone XS! When I choose to download or simply view a pdf file, Adobe Acrobat nor the Adobe Creative Cloud app appear in the list of apps to choose from in the iOS share to/open menu! I tried a workaround by saving the PDF file to "files" both locally and via iCloud drive then attempted to open the saved PDF file via Adobe Acrobat which incredibly failed to open with a message stating "File type unsupported"... This is unacceptable! Can't open the very file format Adobe Acrobat is meant to not only open but create and manage! Wow just wow! Not sure what is going on but Adobe is slacking with other apps as well! I'm contemplating canceling my CC subscription since $50 a month is a price only worth paying for the best and I am literally seeing more and more apps that offer more! The mobile apps are terrible besides a select few! Out of all, I never thought Acrobat would ever lose the crown but here I am having to find an alternative in order to save the PDF I need! Verbal apologies won't change the fact that I'm dishing out money for software that isn't working properly!
Very powerful, missing critical annotation feature
by DrOverbuild on 2019/09/06 02:49
This app has been great when it comes to storing, reading, and annotating documents. I’ve been using it with the Apple Pencil and I’ve noticed the drawing features are lacking support for the pencil in one key area: it takes the touch of the palm of my hand or my fingers as drawing touches. I must have the option to ignore all drawing events with my hand and just accept them from the Apple Pencil, with the exception of scrolling. I want to be able to use two of my fingers to navigate the document and the Apple Pencil strictly for drawing. Because I don’t have the option for this extended Apple Pencil support it’s difficult for tasks such as writing notes over presentation slide PDFs during the presentation. I can’t rest the palm of my hand on my iPad and write normally because it listens to finger touch events. EDIT: I have learned a day later that once you start using Apple Pencil in drawing mode, it ignores other touches, but you have to start with the pencil. Still, it would be nice to be able to scroll without leaving draw mode.
!!!horrible update!!!
by necessarynickname? on 2018/10/03 20:55
Zero stars if that were possible. I’ve never written a review before for any app, but this update is so awful that I had to comment. I have an iPad Air 2, which is not old enough to be the problem (I think). A handful of user comments after the last update are positive, but I echo the vast majority—the app freezes at the home page and I can’t access any files. At least I can open the app to see a home page with a recent files list; apparently some folks just see a spinning circle with the opening icon and never get to the home page. At first I thought my files had been deleted, as some folks complained, but since I can still see some recent file names listed on the home page, I can’t tell whether some or all files have actually been deleted. Either way, I can’t even sign in or sign up because that link on the home page doesn’t work either. Bottom line, fix it or I’m done (as are many others probably), obviously, because I can’t even access my files. Now I’m glad that I saved at least some files in other formats/apps.
Need auto-save as you work
by G.G.Lórien on 2020/02/08 17:32
Update: delete and reinstall app fixed the launch issue; back to 4 stars. Update: from 4 to 1 star. 2-2-20 app update results in app crashing on my iPad while it’s working on launching, then it just sits in the background stuck on th3 splash screen before I flick it closed. Utterly useless to me right now... Unlike Office and Google, this will not save changes as your filling in forms or annotating; will save changes only when you back out of the document to the larger document list. I have a fillable PDF I type into during a group study, and lost 1 1/2 hrs worth of work when the app crashed. I lost all that work because the info in the lecture was coming fast and furious and I didn’t have time to back out to the documents list so this particular group study PDF could save. Thought about giving it three stars because of this issue, but other than that I like the app.
Finally , I find the best PDF files app that suit me
by Tomshz on 2019/02/23 23:14
I had tried a few different PDF files and Acrobat is the best so far . It has all the features and functionalities in helping me creating , editing PDF files ; it has very simple interface and tools in guiding me to finish my works. with the Scan file app , it add more useful functions in creating PDF files ; the Acrobat cloud allows me to access my files from everywhere ; and upload to cloud to store my files securely . and Sharing the files easily to anyone . On the other hand , I find the app a bit of confusing in some area . the default language is English (UK) ; the app i was downloaded for my iphone , I can not use the app to edit or fill the files . and it require Window or Mac Version of the app to edit or fill my files. Why can the app tell me before I purchase it ? lastly , I cannt download the finished the files to my iphone or my icloud
Hate the new user interface.
by dvd587 on 2018/10/27 18:40
I loved the old user interface, everything was where it needed to be and within reach. This new UI is horrible, clunky and annoying. I especially hate being asked constantly to sign in/up for something just to use a PDF viewer. That’s all I need this app to do, look at PDFs. Not link it to social media so I can share things in the cloud with people who don’t need to see what I’m looking at. Why did you need to move the bookmarks button behind a menu at the top of the screen? It was perfect at the bottom right corner. Why do you feel the need to have me fill and sign every PDF? In case you didn’t know a manual for something doesn’t need to be filled out. Finding the right chapter in a manual or using the search function is more important than filling out non-existent fields. I especially dislike when I go to send someone something over airdrop it brings up a blank screen and reminds me I should log in for no reason, and then hit another greyed out button to bring up the native iOS transfer menu. Guess I’ll go find a new PDF viewer.
This app used to be wonderful, but now...
by GRIFFINSTE1N on 2018/10/28 20:42
...it’s terrible. It was extremely user friendly, from its organization (folders first, then separate files - this made so much sense, why would you change it?! I don’t want to have to put a number before my folders so they display before files) to its editable features (highlighting...the new colors and transparency options are terrible, seriously). If I tapped the screen while on a document, the superfluous information would go away until the screen was tapped again. Brilliant. Now, every time you scroll that information is displayed, what if I just want to read the raw document!? And seriously, it’s a PDF reader, why are you trying to fit some new mold with the design? And for the life of me, how can I delete the STUPID “Welcome” document out of my files? And why will this update not “find” text when I search through documents that the previous version would? Please revert this “improved update” to the way it was when it was useful and simple. Will definitely be switching apps if this isn’t changed.
Couldn’t live without
by Jilimac77 on 2019/01/22 15:30
This is a paid subscription however it has paid for itself several times over. It’s every important document saver with adobe cloud. It’s a must for anyone that is a multi tasker from a busy Mom to an executive. The best app that is also a must have is Adobe Scan app. That is the most convenient app I’ve ever downloaded. It can save business cards to your favorite pictures your kids have made and can print and edit better than any program. So yes I pay every month for the apps but it comes with a lot of Adobes Apps. Would most definitely recommend you won’t be disappointed. If I had one ding I wish they would put down the monthly payment. Maybe they will read this and make the change!!
Acrobat Reader.: My review
by BonnieSK on 2020/05/17 10:34
I really like using Acrobat Reader in order to save pages from the internet to be able to read or reference later and to save copies of online orders and refunds and files so that they are always available to me and I can keep them conveniently with me on my iPhone and/or iPad wherever I go without having to carry a bulky, (and extremely heavy,) amount of paperwork, and can use it to quickly access the document cloud and add attachments in pdf form to emails or messages, or open it in notes to reference it quickly on my iPhone while I’m reading something on my iPad. The only issue I had was that I hadn’t kept up with technological advances and hadn’t used the internet or pretty much anything as far as newer technology for years and so it took me some time to figure out how to use Acrobat Reader and am still figuring some things on it. I have to say that it has been fairly easy to figure it out though even without having used adobe acrobat or early version of Reader in so long. Over all I rate the basic online version that I use, without any upgrades so it’s free, as 9 out of 10, but that’s because of my lack really and I didn’t check to see if there is tutorial though either. Keep it up everyone at Adobe!! Awesome products👍👍 a Happy consumer, Bonnie K., Oregon City, Oregon
So far so bad
by adobeappuser on 2018/10/04 15:31
I was surprised today to find that the Adobe app on my iPad had been “upgraded”. From what I can to determine thus far, it appears that Adobe created This “upgraded” app to encourage the use of “the cloud”. That is all well and good. BUT Adobe might have considered its users who sometimes have reason to use the Adobe app off line before it shoved this “upgrade” down users’ throats. Prior to the Adobe “upgrade”, I had organized all my Adobe files into folders based on categories. I had several dozen files organized that way. But the “upgraded“ Adobe app wiped out all my folders. I cannot find a function in the “upgraded“ version of the Adobe app that allows me to create folders. Therefore, It will now require hours of my time to figure out how to re-organize my files in a way that Allows me to find the file I want when I want it. Very bad adobe.
Why did you destroy a great program?
by Brains1959 on 2018/11/17 11:24
This is the worst downgrade of a five star program ever. Sure programs have changed and no longer worked for certain devices or operating systems. But this no longer is not good for anyone. If you do not use it - do not download. Very very difficult to edit. Now I struggle to edit forms or to fill in forms. Used to be tap and add writing, drawing, or text. Now I must click and click and click to stumble into adding text. Also I must email a copy to myself to save unsigned version. Before I easily would make a duplicate of a file then have customer sign the duplicate. Now you do not have duplicate function. It is harder to email a copy to customer it tries to get them to view or share a cloud version. I can’t imagine how it appears to a customer. New version is also uglier on screen with less color than old version. They are also trying to force us to use their cloud service. Please fire the idiot who did this - the CEO if need be. Then bring back a version similar to the old one.
Fast, smooth but could be better (after update: bad)
by YinghaoS on 2018/11/27 01:05
This app is very fast, clear and smooth. But there are still some features missing: 1. Bookmarks can't be created 2. It's better to have a webpage like top bank to switch between opened books quickly 3. Can't show the list of past comments made Also an annoying little bug: when you switch to other app and back (even after you go to the home screen), the zoom in disappeared and the file return to its original size. So I need to zoom in again to kill the white margins. (the zoom in will stay if you zoomed in 120% or above though) (A comment: although it's been 2 years, those features are still missing. But I'm still stick to it because it's elegant, and robust to things it promised to do.) =============== After the update, which is a radical new design, a lot of things changed. First of all it can’t open, after many tries it finally opened. Then it can finally show past comments which is good, and do global search. That is the only two things pleasing. All else feels bad. The app is slower to scroll documents, it’s harder to make comment or edit file, you need to click more buttons, it’s very annoying that when you scroll up, the file title will show up, it’s not a web browser! It’s harder to view bookmarks, again you need do more clicking. A comment said who design the new version should be fired, lol, I am also surprised since it’s Adobe who made it.
I used to love this app before the most recent update
by Too much travel on 2018/10/04 22:35
I have loved using the Adobe Acrobat app for many years. It has improved over time and has many wonderful features that the desktop edition has. Using the app has been easy, almost instinctive, until now. Nothing is easy to do anymore. The typeface is light and difficult to read for those of us who no longer have 20/20 vision. I’m still trying to figure out how to move a group of files (used to be really easy). I know that the performance is supposed to be improved but scrolling through lists of files and folders seems slower. May be I’ll update this review after using the new update for a while.
New update hindrance to annotation
by Mr.Culbertson on 2018/10/02 20:53
For users annotating PDFs the pen tool’s thickness has been scaled up with no smaller option, making it impossible to write small annotations in margins with Apple pencil. Further, comments and drawings are not saved automatically. Previously users could go between local copies of their documents and have all annotations saved. Now we have no choice but to save in the cloud to retain changes, and see two copies show up in our library? Lastly, tools have an added step and have been miniaturized and placed on the top pane, after tapping the blue pen icon in the bottom right. This update totally baffles me; why make an update that reduces functionality save the addition of cloud improvements? If this isn’t fixed I’ll be using a third party app. I had loved Adobe Reader for its clean UI and superior aesthetic when annotating documents. Why this update?
Issues with sharing pdf files
by Kalon Williamson on 2018/10/12 18:34
I’m not sure what to rate it because I know that nobody’s perfect and updates often times have bugs that need to be worked out. I’m not sure how many others are experiencing the same issue I’m having with sharing pdf’s, but whenever I fill-in some information on a pdf. and while I’m in the process of sharing that file........whatever information I fill-in the pdf with will normally look extremely out of place as far as where I originally placed it. Aside from that, there’s no way of knowing if I’m sharing a “flattened copy” or one that can be edited like the options we had prior to the update. I love using Adobe for what it’s previously been able to for various things. Thank you for this app but if at all possible, can someone check into this matter as soon as possible please? Thank you in advance. 🕎 Shalom
THE ultimate PDF viewer
by Souporstarv on 2019/12/27 03:20
Adobe invented the PDF format so that a file looked the same on a PC or Macintosh or even a Unix system. Ofcourse you must have the correct fonts and the correct font sizes installed, which anyone with enough experience involving PDF files has run into from time to time, which when absent can occasionally make hip modern art out of an instruction manual or other document. But it’s usually pretty easy to find missing fonts online, taking a matter of minutes for Adobe to locate thee correct fonts, and nine times out of ten you have all the necessary fonts already installed, especially if you’re a regular user of the App!
Overall good but need a few improvements
by Kwlman2345 on 2017/12/26 03:01
The app itself is good for iPad user but still need a few major improvements. I am a student and I frequently use it to mark up my PDF using Apple Pencil. The app doesn’t have palm rejection that is seen in OneNote, which is definitely a bummer. Also, what what really makes a difference b/w a good and a great app for student is being able to scroll with finger and write/highlight with Apple Pencil. I find myself being slowed down my task whenever I want to switch b/w scroll and write/highlight. OneNote somehow has this feature figured out. Lastly, whenever you try to add a text in your PDF, we can’t type directly onto the PDF since we are brought to another window. It will be way more convenient if we can do that. Thank you again! Keep working at it :)
Good app but useful feature removed.
by FLLH122318 on 2018/10/11 11:54
Useful app. Would have given 5 stars but once they changed it so that you need to download a separate app to use the scan feature it makes it more annoying to use because I use mostly to mark up scanned paperwork or photos. You now have to scan in the other app then wait for it to load into the cloud then use the scan app to open in adobe. 90% of the time i have to load it twice because it doesn’t work the first time when pushing the open in adobe app. Wish they would bring back the scan feature in this app it makes no sense. The scan app alone is good for some people but when need to scan and edit it makes it more difficult. Overall you can still accomplish the same task but it’s now more difficult.
Just a feedback on one of your feature
by Name is taken so whatever on 2019/04/16 04:05
Hi developing team, I realize that a feature in this app is that while reading through a pdf file, a click on the top panel (where the time and date is) will send the user back to the first page. I understand the convenience this feature provided, but at the same time would like to point out that a sloppy user like myself often touches the top bar accidentally quite often. For instance, when I read intently, I hold the top and bottom side of my iPad together, or have my elbow over. This accidental touches send me back to the first page. It’s an exasperation to try to find my way back. As you can see, when reading a document hundred pages long, worse with an added deadline, a few of this trips certainly translates into frustration. I wonder if you have a switch somewhere to turn this feature off. If not I know your engineers will take this feedback and come up with something way smarter than we expected. As I enjoy using your app and plan to use it in the long term, your consideration of this feedback will tremendously improve my experience. Thanks for providing this useful app, as well as taking this feedback into consideration.
Note Taking Function Seriously Lacking
by j1524 on 2018/10/10 02:41
Many of my professors use PDFs for their lecture slides. I was hoping to use this app on my iPad to directly take notes on the slides with my stylus, but the note taking functions are lacking and pretty impractical. There are no multitouch functions, like using 2 fingers to scroll while in the note taking mode. You are stuck on the screen you have when you enter into note taking mode, and have to exit every time you wish to scroll. Most infuriating however is there is NO ERASER. Why is there no eraser? The only way I can erase is by hitting the undo button over and over. And if there is something I wrote early on in my notes that I would like to erase or edit, I can’t find a simple way to do so. These are simple, essential functions to taking notes. I can’t imagine they would be too difficult to implement.
Edits to PDF on Box do not save (Fixed with Restart)
by Mikedelic on 2017/08/31 15:12
Edits made to PDF on Box used to save back to Box when file is closed. But now they are not. This appears to be specifically happening on iPad. Update: Restarting the iPad appears to have resolved the issue. This should be communicated during app updates. Normally, a restart is not required. Many of my colleagues are having this same issue, so the fact that a restart is required in order to regain full functionality is maybe something you can include in your app update notes. I think many of us take for granted the fact that we use devices every day that do not have be booted up or restarted. So if a restart must be performed, it would help to be notified of this.
Useful but lacking
by Blue8haze on 2018/01/22 17:24
I use this a lot to mark up PDFs but there a few UI improvements needed. Needs an erase tool to remove free hand marks, needs a setting to only recognize Apple Pencil to avoid stray marks, needs the ability to choose thickness and color before starting to draw (this is available on my Note 8 but not iPad version). Saving back to google drive should be as easy as saving back to Dropbox. I think there needs to be a Pro version and Reader version just like on desktops. There is no reason why the iPad Pro can’t handle a pro version. Update: since updating to latest version I’ve been receiving a message that my document is read only whenever I try to comment on it. If I close and reopen everything is fine for a few minutes. Reduced 1 star because of this.
Not a fan of the latest update!
by Jillsjingles on 2018/10/09 17:56
I’ve used Adobe Acrobat reader for a few years. Most of my time is spent in the evening or at night. The night reading mode is always on, but with the new update, is not available. They’re response is to go to your settings and turn it on the device. If you use your tablet for anything else, that doesn’t work. In order to use the app now with night reading mode, I need to go through a four-step process, only to repeat the process when I’m finished. That is frustrating. Another issue is that pages don’t load correctly, or can’t be reformatted in reading mode that could be prior to updating the app. I hope to see fixes for these issues soon. Normally, I thoroughly enjoy using this app over my other options.
Seems to be glitching
by nokaboy on 2018/08/16 14:26
I’ve used adobe acrobat reader for years to read knitting pattern PDFs but lately it’s been having this annoying glitch. When the page loads it doesn’t seem to completely finish. Most of the pdf is there but there are a few extra large stretched letters and a few gaps in the script. It’s frustrating because missing a line when you are knitting mean having to go back and fix it when you realize the error. I’ve tried checking for updates to fix the problem several times. I’ve also closed and reopened the app as well as just restarting my phone. I even tried it on my tablet to see if it’s my phone and it’s doing it on there as well. Fix this problem and the app would be a full 5 stars again.
Not sure of the need for the new update
by Stetofire on 2018/10/27 20:07
I really like this app and it being free is a super bonus, but this version brought some design changes that didn't seem necessary. Honestly, the UI of the previous update was spectacular. Sure, there are always improvements that can be made with applications, but I was very satisfied with it and you guys changed it a lot. The one nitpick I have that really prompted this review was the 'Bookmarks' button. I used it all the time because I have some open source textbook PDFs that I got for class, but now it's hidden in a menu and replaced by options I've never used once. If there was an opportunity to configure the toolbar myself, I'd be fine with the other changes.
Why?
by vhdave on 2017/12/17 17:32
Update: Adobe! Thanks for listening to me. It’s fixed on my end. And it’s users like me who forget that every little thing on software takes a human touch. And it needs to be perfect or people like me will complain. Thanks for updating this, it great! 👍 Why is it every time I open a document in the adobe app it walks me through a 4 step getting started menu? This happens at least once a week, then I need to find the document I’m using out of the long list. I understand the getting started menu when you update the app or when it’s brand new... but I am seeing this all the time. It’s an unnecessary extra step.
Useful but can be improved
by KatherinePierce7 on 2018/10/18 08:18
I really like this application because of how lightweight and useful it is. I mostly need this application to annotate PDFs with my Apple Pencil and take notes on them, but I think accessing the annotation menu is not as intuitive and simple as it could be. You have to touch the edit icon, and then comment, whereas instead of that you could just have a more accessible button to show the options for different annotation tools. Also I can’t find any option to erase the text that I write with pencil, I have to use the undo button which doesn’t do what I want exactly, because I might want to partially erase something or erase something not in the reverse order of writing it.
Google Account Integration
by Craigwd_2000 on 2019/04/24 18:43
For one have two different personal Google Accounts and currently the app only allows me to add one account and there doesn’t appear to actually be any other way in the app’s main user interface to selectively add another Google account to import more PDF files from and I really wish I could do so too. Add this feature and I will definitely give this app four out of five stars too. It would also really be nice to be able to sort my documents alphabetically like the Default used to be in previous Mobile Adobe Reader stable maintenance release versions of this particular app too. Also the aforementioned account adding wizard should allow a second chance to link your Facebook account to this app too.
This app was great before this latest update.
by V.R.U.S.P. on 2018/11/10 07:45
I never write reviews but felt like I just had to in this case. I use the app to grade papers and it was really helpful and easy to use. Then they monkeyed around with it, and now it’s counterintuitive and cumbersome. What used to take two actions, now takes three or four. I used to be able to add comments to the papers by tapping the screen where I wanted the comment to be, then selecting text and typing it in. Now I have to tap the pencil icon, select comment, select type, then tap the screen where the comment should go (but don’t hold your finger on the screen too long or it doesn’t come up) then type the comment. Then I have to tap post. If I want to edit the comment, I tap it and a dialogue box comes up, but the edit choice is hidden in a menu accessed by tapping an ellipse. Once I’ve made my edits, if I tap anywhere but directly on the “post” button, the edits I’ve made disappear and I have to recreate them. The same goes for navigating to my files. It used to open up in the main folder of my Dropbox where I keep the papers. Now it opens up in some folder of recent files and I have to tap “Locations” which is not prominently displayed, to get to my Outlook folder. It Byzantine, and just complicates my job.
Apple Software Glitch
by Mattmorg2 on 2018/01/29 02:55
Update - Ap has been updated and bugs repaired. Thank you for actually listening! When opening the app, at first works fine. However, if you momentarily look at another app, for example attempt to copy and paste a reference from another source and paste into this app, the program will not allow this function. You have to close the app completely and reopen. Same problem happens if attempting to highlight or underline. A warning box appears and says your document is a read only when it isn’t. Very frustrating. Avoid this app until repaired.
Destructive Update
by SpreadEagle10 on 2019/02/06 22:34
The most recent update has made this previously wonderful and productive app completely useless! Can’t convert files...tells me to subscribe, then tells me I can’t because I am a subscriber, which I’ve been for years, then sends a me back to the unconverted file. Edits and form filling only get saved sometimes and when they do they don’t make it to a shared document. I travel frequently and this is, or has been, one of my most used apps...no more...I spent an hour trying to fill and share a document yesterday only to have it so corrupted my email system wouldn’t deliver it... Update...since my last not go hot review it has only become more frustrating to use this app. While a 2nhour back and forth with Apple and Adobe got the subscription figured out I still can’t move a file that is on my iPad to a folder in the cloud...STUPID!
Bad UX for iPad app, kindle fire 10X better.
by Agongaz on 2019/10/05 03:51
I previously had a kindle fire and I used it very often, that adobe app on the kindle worked perfectly, specific it was more feature rich and very responsive experience, moreover I could specify to download the pdf documents on the device, however, I cannot say the same about this application, it has been utterly frustrating. From the instance where I am constantly logged out,on my own device, and I have to religiously in and redo load all the documents I. This is bull****! And it is unacceptable for a an established application to display such starter glitches and issues. I am requesting changes to be made as follows, include the option to have a two page view, have the option to save the documents on device, remove the issue( or whatever you call it) of being constantly logged out.
Worst Update Ever Release in iTUNES
by K.Cart3r27 on 2018/11/03 13:07
I use to love adobe prior to the recent update. I would use this app daily for work and was my primary go to pdf app; 100% of our reports are digital so make sending to customers easier and more professional looking. AFTER the new release it is no longer user friendly, what I would use to hit it upload PDFs now wants me to get a subscription for. You can still upload but seems to me more steps to do so. It was so frustrating trying to figure out the new app I no longer use it. If i had more drive i would explain more issues but no need since i see plenty of other reviews that agree with me regarding the update. -My new choice of pdf app is “PSPDFKIT pdf viewer” when you check it out you will not be disappointed. To Adobe: complete fail, give us the option to revert back prior to update.
Adobe doesn't allow other apps to multitask
by Jeannedb on 2017/09/25 12:39
Like a previous reviewer, I was sick of this app opening on the right side anytime I got close to swiping anything on the right part of my iPad screen. An Adobe Acrobat sidebar opens and I see a list of my locally saved documents. The previous reviewer indicated that Adobe offered a fix of turning off Multitasking under the general tab. That would be fine if you definitely don't want any multitasking to show up. But here's the thing--While Acrobat is installed, no other apps will show up if you swipe from the right -- only Acrobat. If you are in Acrobat and swipe from the right, you can see the apps that are normally supposed to show up as part of multi-tasking. It looks like a nice feature. The problem is, you can't have that feature and Acrobat too. For now I will turn off multi-tasking because if I delete Acrobat, I lose my documents. After I take the time to back them up in another app, then I will dump Acrobat until they fix this situation. The other reviewer decided it was the fault of iOS, but I have to disagree. At the very least, Acrobat should find a way to turn off their own multi-tasking within their own app.
Once a standard, now a Disappointment
by PDF-ed in Wisconsin on 2019/05/14 23:13
Acrobat Reader was once the standard utility that greased the e-cogs of the digital document sharing world. However, since the advent of the Document Cloud model, where you can’t use the app without creating an account, it has ceased to be utilitarian for any organization larger than one or two people. It’s great if you want to use their cloud offering, but so many orgs just need to view, create, and combine PDFs, and not share via yet another cloud with yet another account, that it becomes unworkable. Reader has walked away from its natural market stronghold. The document sorting and organizing capabilities of Reader on iPad have been completely abandoned for no identifiable reason that I can find. Hope you like their one sort option, because that’s all you get. Soviet software would have offered more options.
Please help me

Customer Service is Absent and worthless
by Phillis phan on 2019/08/22 21:59
Have been using Acrobat on iPad for a year or so and was happy to see editing features become available, even if they came with a $4.99/month Premium fee. After purchasing the upgrade through the Apple’s App Store, the program froze during the “registering the upgrade”. I rebooted the iPad because the program was froze. After reboot, and launching Acrobat again, the premium features were still not available, and when prompted to subscribe to them (again), was left with a message that i was already subscribed. So.....subscribed and charged for a service that is not functioning, and no customer support to remedy. No phone support and bounced between 3 different parties on “chat support” with no resolution. Was told by the third representative to try a forum for a solution.
One annoying glitch
by cathyincv on 2018/10/07 18:31
This app is mostly good, but I’ve been creating a form in Acrobat Pro DC (generated over a Word document) and I’m finding the form filling capabilities are making my current form unusable on the iPad. I have some date fields that in certain cases are not required, but if you tab into those date fields, it seems impossible to clear the date. You have no choice but to allow some date to remain, and resetting the field doesn’t work. The pop up calendar in the date field seemed cool on my desktop but fails in IOS. It’s a small thing since I can just use a normal text field as I used to but I thought it’s worth mentioning. Maybe I’m just doing something wrong.
Major downgrade!
by TheTigerMom on 2018/10/09 00:51
Adobe Acrobat Reader was my life support for work. Before this last update nothing compared to the ease of using the app & I was totally dependent on Adobe. This new update has removed the alphabetical tabs formerly used to access files quickly. Consequently, I am forced to scroll through my files without the the ability to go straight to a set of documents commencing with a particular letter of the alphabet. Inevitably this leads to the app freezing forcing me to close the app & relaunch. Now, the easiest way to locate a document in the event that I know it’s name is to go to search as access to folders to view contents has diminished. Frustration doesn’t cover the distress of not being able to do what I once was able to before this update! THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE OLD VERSION!!!! Please fix it!
Love it but 2 recent problems
by a deacon on 2018/08/06 13:33
I really love this app and am a long time user but 2 recent problems are making it difficult to use. Using IOS 11x on iPad 6. 1 - Perhaps this is a Google problem but when using Google through Safari to search and open a PDF file, there are no options to download the file. No options appear when you touch the file. I had to go to my PC to download a recent file. Have not been able to download other PDFs on iPad as well. 2 - When you go to move a file to a folder, the list of folders is no longer in alphabetical order. Please fix. Thank you.
Highlights trouble
by fmeireles on 2018/10/15 14:13
I just bought an iPad Pro to my work, and as I have a lot of high way project to review I decide to use notes and highlights from Adobe, that’s is really cool feature if you have those iPencil. So, said that, I start highlighting, handwriting, you know... so after several hours, a lot of work done, when I start my review, for my surprise almost all files that I’ve been work so many hours, couldn’t open, and another’s just was missing parts. It was frustrating. Anyway, I couldn’t discovery what happened, but I’m work now with everything saved on my iPad Pro, instead my cloud.
Absolute downgrade
by AriaADB on 2018/10/05 17:40
I am writing this only because I like AdobeReader and want its good feature to be back. The new design lack some of the features that I loved. I will give three examples: 1. The ability to concisely select 1 of four opacities for your highlights. Don’t get me wrong I believe the continuum should exist as an option for opacity setting, but we are nor painting after all, and the previous method was much more effective and should be brought back. 2. No alphabet-initial-bar, so that you can go straight to the pdfs with that initial. 3. The ability you adjust your highlights. Why on earth did you remove that? In addition to these losses, the application becomes too laggy which cause difficulties in navigation and frequently fails to show some thumbnails. This wasn’t the case in previous versions. And personally, I find the new features rarely used and the design to be less intuitive, for example, I don’t like the placement of bookmarks. I hope you fix these “issues” soon and improve my experience with your great product.
Wishing to Create Fillable PDF Forms on iPad
by A. Anu on 2019/07/24 20:46
I appreciate the current functions available via the Adobe Acrobat App(s) for iPad. For work, we do have a subscription to Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, and I didn’t realize that I did not need to buy the add-on pack called “PDF Pack - Doc Creator” because it is included in the Adobe Acrobat Pro DC subscription, so I accidentally spent $9.99 when I didn’t need to.. oops! My curiosity of the “PDF Pack - Doc Creator” was an effort to discover if the pack addition offered the function of creating Fillable PDF Forms on iPad. So far, I do not believe that you can create a Fillable PDF Form in the Adobe Acrobat (Pro DC subscription)/PDF Pack - Doc Creator APP with a 2018 iPad Pro iOS 12.4. I really wish this function were available. I also understand that most people probably have both a personal computer/laptop in addition to an iPad, so it probably isn’t a big deal. It would just be such a useful and helpful function to also be able to create this way on iPad :) Thanks for reading :)
What Happened?!!!
by Jackie_Ohh on 2018/10/17 08:50
Anyone else got app recommendations that I can use instead of this one? I used to use this app on a regular basis for work purposes. I used it on an iPad to fill in forms we converted into PDFs. It was very easy to use. Now, it is a complete mess! I used to be able to copy and rename files but now I can’t seem to have the option for that. I also dislike that I had to create an account to email the forms. That alone was hard as heck because the verification email wasn’t getting through my work email. After several failed attempts, I finally used my personal email and it worked (although it did not give me the option to send a flat copy). However, I do not want to associate my personal email to this account. Yes, I checked my junk and spam folder.
Doesn’t work the same on every device
by _DoubleRR on 2020/04/09 18:03
I recently downloaded this for my iPad,MacBook, and iPhone. It works well on both Mac and iPhone but on iPad it’s a little odd. Especially when it comes to signing in. I have a adobe account that’s basically linked to my gmail account. I access my account and read my books and documents saved to this account on my MacBook and iPhone but I can’t even access my account on my iPad. I notice that on iPad we actually don’t have the option of using our gmail or there login options that maybe link to our adobe accounts. I’m not sure if this is a glitch with the app or just a personal experience for me...but yeah that’s my feedback.
Doesn’t work
by CheriMo on 2020/03/09 17:33
I had to purchase another application to be able to print PDFs on my mobile devices because all this version does is CRASH. I see where Adobe replied to another reviewer complaining about the same issue I’m having, not being able to open the very files that this software was designed to manage, and they blamed the file or the user as this software "is intended to work". Well intentions don’t cut it. If the problem were with the files or the way the user was saving the file, no software would be able to open the file. I paid $6 for other software just so I could manage to print my PDFs with access to the printer options because this software just crashes. Come on Adobe, get your act together!
