great to have this app
by felderguy on 2021/05/11 14:23
I waited for Abode to come out with a mobile app like this that can do the things I do on my desktop with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Now I can finally combine docs, edit the order of pages and delete unwanted ones on my iPad Pro. I think mobile computing will take over even from laptops. The app costs me money each month but very worth it. Thanks for developing this app.

anyone with a little gray hair will appreciate the absence of any universal “language” for documents from a computer. Even MS Word would have problems, with formatting based on the definitions of the printer. Acrobat has changed the world, and those of us who prefer the digital format will forever be thankful.

Excellent Tool
by Macrophil on 2021/04/28 01:18
This software is a must have for those that are a student or do a lot of work with documents and files on a tablet. This app always works excellently, and I have never had any issues with it. The user interface is extremely simple and easy to use. It is very capable and powerful software, and is the best PDF to DOC converter that I have ever used. Normally I am not one to write reviews, but this is just a great app. It does exactly what you want it to all the time really well and I’ve never had any issues with it.
HORRIBLE
by Dollysmommy on 2021/04/27 18:05
This has been the worse experience ever. I have been sending documents that appear perfect on my end and then the recipient receives the documents and its completely scrambled. I have reached out several times and no one was helpful.
Editing text in PDF ruins line spacing
by Vivre!!! on 2021/04/26 05:45
Tried the PDF convert + edit subscription and it was worthless because it removed all the custom line spacing in the doc when I saved any text changes (even as small as removing one letter from a word). There’s no way in the product to adjust doc line spacing (other than when you’re just in reading / “Liquid” mode, but that doesn’t actual edit the doc, it just changes how you can read the doc while in the app. Maybe this works well if your docs have standard 1-line spacing throughout, but in my case, with sections having intentional, stylistic line spacing, this app+subscription was pointless. I love editing PDF text with Acrobat Pro DC on my computer but this really missed the mark.

Missing navigation viene
by FreddyLazzaris on 2021/04/24 18:55
It has at features comparable to Books or Kindle. It syncs much better with PDFs in Dropbox including highlights and notes making it my go-to app for my academic bibliography. However, it missing an important feature: ability to have an overall view of a large paper or pdf book. Like kindle and books have. Something to navigate yourself around the overall text, a smart index or Toc etc. And versatility of formats...

Difficult to use and not as easy to use on an iPad as Nitro on a PC. This is unfortunate because I wanted to switch all to Apple, but this PDF solution is miserable. In addition the annual payment does not work for occasional use as would a one time payment. I will continue to have to support both Windows and Apple.

I Do NOT Recommend
by scantime on 2021/04/22 13:40
Since August of 2020, I’ve tried to purchase Adobe Acrobat Pro and their bundles hoping to be able to compress documents, convert PDF’s to Word, etc. I’ve been billed monthly, and each time I try to use their options - I am asked to purchase the apps I have paid for and am logged into. I’ve tried to get through to customer service multiple times. Their foreign accents are so thick that I cannot understand them. I’m guessing they either don’t want to reimburse me or don’t know how, since they ultimately just disconnect me after I’ve wasted more than 10 minutes. That is not good customer service! There should be an email option for customer service! I finally notified PayPal to see that I no longer get billed, and I’ve asked them for their help getting me reimbursed for months of payment without receiving the service. I have a health issue and certainly do not have the time for all of the nonsense. Again, I would not recommend Adobe.

I tried to use it to read articles but they’ve done something to text selection and removed the ios default. As a result the dictionary is not available (the lookup option is missing). Very annoying and makes this app useless as I could just use any other pdf reader and it would have the dictionary for when I need it.

All I do with this app is take my timesheet from an excel worksheet, create a pdf and sign it to turn it in to my employer. I purchased the ability to do that, and it is consistently difficult to get my phone or tablet just to convert it. Today it started telling me it was “verifying my purchase” and will not convert it.. why the procedure to do this simple task is so intensely difficult is beyond me.

by VictoriaSilvis on 2021/04/11 04:53
I don’t do lengthy reviews and only do when I enjoy a good app, or software. After using Adobe acrobat reader actually I wanna get all three Adobe apps, and including this. The only con is why $52 for individuals per month? I know it’s fair but why per month? I won’t complain. I think other companies alike Adobe needs to rely on yearly subscriptions at lower prices. Because I’ve been hearing complaints from people on the media using Adobe apps, so what you could improve is include more colors in Adobe reader, and make the monthly payments for individuals maybe like $25 per year. That’s just my feedback and I ain’t gonna complain, and people just don’t like when people feels their money is robbed, and I’ve notice the prices are getting better. The one for individuals per month probably alright for people who has enough money, and were able to pay per month. It would been helpful if you made an affordable yearly subscription for individuals.
Goodbye.

Being Over-Charged through duplicate accounts
by boxipip on 2021/04/08 21:27
I have subscribed using various emails; since changing to another phone, I have not been able to use the Premium features on my first, and preferred, account. The trouble is- I now am paying for the Adobe Scan , the PDF converter, and the first account, with my best files, though free, I can’t use to the full, lest I also add another PAID subscription to it. I’m already paying for 2 of the aforementioned services under emails I had used subsequent to my first account. I’m up to about 30 dollars per month, with scattered files. I can’t just go away and come back like I was wanting to( the device I.D. has to be forgotten for 120 days( or something to that effect), I have no personal assistance that I know if except all the reading material. So now I’m trapped. With the past single premium subscription, I had full functionality. Now I just feel not in control and just bewildered about what to do.
Scam- DO NOT USE
by Bender burp on 2021/04/08 21:15

Although I try to do everything in my power to keep my end of the bargain in terms of changing passwords and additional authentication, it looks like more clouds and storage facilities are being breached and the clients are not being kept abreast of these breaches until something gets leaked.

Don`t let your free trial turn active
by jean2pierre1 on 2021/04/02 19:10
7 days is not enough time to decide if you need an adobe subscription of any kind. But you don’t realize when you do the free trial that you are locked in for a year if it goes active. I thought, “I`ll let it go active for a month and see if i still need it.” After a month I decided I didn’t need it and when I tried to cancel and lo, I had to pay to get out. Customer service was nice but their representative is unable to help as their hands are tied. Sketchy business practice if you ask me...

Premium function to compress files does not work
by Surprisingly Disappointed on 2021/04/02 13:38
The compress files function does not work. It asks you to subscribe, which I have done quite a while ago. It’s the only button to click so I did and it simply tells me I’m already subscribed but doesn’t let me get to a place to activate compression of my pdf file. It’s a loop you can’t get out. Contacted support. They said they don’t help anymore. How’s that for a crap company?

by Mbf2013 on 2021/03/30 23:45

Very disappointed because so many times they say it’s but it’s not. Trial Version are not really free because you end up paying. Make sure you put “in-app purchase” and state this is not a free version but a limited time trail version.

While doing simple edits on a PDF, such as a Comment, or Note, it will fail to actually ‘Post’ the Comment or Note but instead, the ‘Note’ or ‘Comment’ will just disappear as well as the ‘field’ in which I created the Note or Comment. Closing and re-opening this application will not clear the problem, only closing the app and cycling the power on my iPad will clear this problem.

by Anna81986 on 2021/03/27 16:56
If you got this app to quickly convert say a PDF to JPEG on the go- don’t bother. You can do very limited actions or editing on this app- it’s not worth it and chances are you’re going to waste more time with this app then you would if you just grab your laptop and make edits there. Unless you want to edit a word here or there- don’t bother.
Undo/Redo buttons in main menu/top of screen
by Error Reporting 2020 on 2021/03/27 15:35
Hello. I was wondering if you could put the undo and redo buttons at the top menu of the screen while editing (ie. Make them always visible!) Else, I have to press the 3 dots, then select undo/redo, making editing very inconvenient when you have to search for buttons! They should already be in place for faster editing. It’s like if I had a remote control, I would have to select the menu, then press rewind or fast forward. On a remote control, the buttons are already there in position, ready to fire. Thank you.

Weak product
by jtraba on 2021/03/25 19:52
Look, if you can’t provide all the bells and whistles for this to go with IPad, and IPad software, you are worthless to me. You can’t convert PDF to jpeg. As a result if you are using an iPad you can’t post PDF files to Facebook because you can’t convert them to jpeg. If I had a startup I would compete against you and provide that, and many other services. I would gladly pay for the upgrade except an upgrade is not provided. Get you stuff together folks.

Subscription Based
by redcorvid on 2021/03/24 19:31
It’s advertised as a free app, but requires a hefty subscription to do anything but add your signature. I wouldn’t mind an upfront payment, or some extra features requiring a subscription, but this is unusable and ridiculous.
Does What It Should
by Spiral Geronimo on 2020/12/19 17:39
In general I find Adobe products (I have many) do what they should do without much of a problem and Acrobat DC is no different... once you climb the learning curve, which is often steep considering the range of functionality. Though some object to subscription models, the need to keep programs updated to meet requirements of your OS is a great convenience. Apple keeps up a regular pace of changes, most of which are positive, so having other programs kept up to date is critical. I often turn Word, Pages (Mac OS), images, scans, etc. into PDF’s for convenience, especially when sending by email, some needing passwords for sensitive documents, or messaging app on an iMac. One improvement I would recommend is that the program ought to enable “tagging” that is compatible with Mac OS tagging. I haven’t a clue about how Windows PC folks find Acrobat DC but in general my forays into the Windows PC world have left me feeling that the Windows version of anything is clunkier, less user friendly and more frustrating than the Apple version.
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!
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.
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.
Good app for my studies
by VictoriaSilvis on 2021/04/11 04:53
I don’t do lengthy reviews and only do when I enjoy a good app, or software. After using Adobe acrobat reader actually I wanna get all three Adobe apps, and including this. The only con is why $52 for individuals per month? I know it’s fair but why per month? I won’t complain. I think other companies alike Adobe needs to rely on yearly subscriptions at lower prices. Because I’ve been hearing complaints from people on the media using Adobe apps, so what you could improve is include more colors in Adobe reader, and make the monthly payments for individuals maybe like $25 per year. That’s just my feedback and I ain’t gonna complain, and people just don’t like when people feels their money is robbed, and I’ve notice the prices are getting better. The one for individuals per month probably alright for people who has enough money, and were able to pay per month. It would been helpful if you made an affordable yearly subscription for individuals.
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.
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.
!!!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
Only a basic reader
by dtnel72 on 2020/10/26 09:27
This is only a basic reader and not much more. I find that it lacks the ability to select multiple PDF files that you may have stored in your cloud account and then transfer them simultaneously to the device. A good example would be I have about 35 files I want to transfer to my device from my iCloud account and I have to go through and manually transfer each one of them one at a time. I have Google searched trying to find a way to batch move files but I cannot seem to find that I know the option used to be there before and be very easy. If it’s something that I have to pay for and I will continue using my dropbox account in the same manner it just will only take one extra step and stead of 35 extra steps. To sum it up basically you get a basic reader with Adobe acrobat reader and that’s about all you’re going to get. You can Open, read and share files but in my opinion I don’t see a whole lot more unless they’re not really advertising their products.
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
Mostly Satisfied withLittle Issues
by memko35 on 2020/09/19 17:34
I like Adobe and use it for most of my readings and note taking needs. However, lately I came across an issue. I have a document which I could read and make changes in the beginning. However, Adobe is losing the pages of my document. The pages get blank and receive an error message that “some of the properties of document is not supported this version of Adobe acrobat”. Reuploading the same document fixes the issue; however, after taking some notes and highlighting lines, the same error pops up and my pages disappear. This issue does not happen on all the documents. So, it’s document specific issue. However, if there is an unsupported thing on the document, the app should not show everything perfect. After you work on it getting and error message is something undesirable.
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.
Being Over-Charged through duplicate accounts
by boxipip on 2021/04/08 21:27
I have subscribed using various emails; since changing to another phone, I have not been able to use the Premium features on my first, and preferred, account. The trouble is- I now am paying for the Adobe Scan , the PDF converter, and the first account, with my best files, though free, I can’t use to the full, lest I also add another PAID subscription to it. I’m already paying for 2 of the aforementioned services under emails I had used subsequent to my first account. I’m up to about 30 dollars per month, with scattered files. I can’t just go away and come back like I was wanting to( the device I.D. has to be forgotten for 120 days( or something to that effect), I have no personal assistance that I know if except all the reading material. So now I’m trapped. With the past single premium subscription, I had full functionality. Now I just feel not in control and just bewildered about what to do.
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?
I Do NOT Recommend
by scantime on 2021/04/22 13:40
Since August of 2020, I’ve tried to purchase Adobe Acrobat Pro and their bundles hoping to be able to compress documents, convert PDF’s to Word, etc. I’ve been billed monthly, and each time I try to use their options - I am asked to purchase the apps I have paid for and am logged into. I’ve tried to get through to customer service multiple times. Their foreign accents are so thick that I cannot understand them. I’m guessing they either don’t want to reimburse me or don’t know how, since they ultimately just disconnect me after I’ve wasted more than 10 minutes. That is not good customer service! There should be an email option for customer service! I finally notified PayPal to see that I no longer get billed, and I’ve asked them for their help getting me reimbursed for months of payment without receiving the service. I have a health issue and certainly do not have the time for all of the nonsense. Again, I would not recommend Adobe.
Failure to launch app
by old nontechie user on 2020/07/20 00:42
So far I can’t get it to do anything but offering other connected adobe subscriptions that I could purchase. All I wanted to do was open the installation and use instructions for a composting toilet. This has so far not been productive. Can’t find the document in what I could access. I have no interest in purchasing other subscriptions when the free one doesn’t seem to do anything but tell me about the wonderful options in the services I could pay for. Even though I don’t do much of anything with this type of activity now that I have retired. If my download is here somewhere than it might be better if there were titles/instructions that non technical user could access and understand. Difficult to work up enthusiasm for purchasing one of the more advanced subscriptions when the free one that I only needed to be able to read one document, was unable to provide that service for me. Thank you anyway C R Zook
Awesome job and User Friend
by APTMSAND on 2020/11/11 21:22
To Adobe and all your employees, You have been able to create The most user-friendly software I have ever seen and used. I am simply a end-user one person but I am very lucky to have run across such a program that makes my job so much easier to be able to sort quotes and deliver a professional looking quote.I upload a template for whatever I need like a survey on the store lighting refrigeration or a repair for SERVICE Quote sheet. So I like to thank you for all your hard work and I appreciate each and every employee for contributing to such a great platform to work off of!!! Michael Sandlin
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
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.
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.
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 :)
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.
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.
What’s wrong with the search option?
by 22Dweb22 on 2020/12/11 19:07
This was my go-to app for use with my Native American language pdf’s. I could search by typing words or parts of words, and it would highlight anything with those combinations. The past few months it just brings me to a page with zero highlights, so I have to search the whole page for the entry it wants to show me. Other times it will tell me the item is not found, even though it’s right on the page. I retype the exact same thing and then it highlights. Basically, search results are very inconsistent, and I’ve been using this app for 6 years. It even does this on my PC now. It brings up entries I didn’t even type in, so I have to switch to “case sensitive”. It’s been pretty frustrating to use this app when it used to work so well up until mid year.
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!
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!
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.
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.
Super versatile document scanning from mobile devices
by tigherj on 2020/12/18 17:32
This app is incredibly useful if you need to capture small documents to save or share using a mobile phone or tablet, and the OCR (optical character recognition) is super helpful when you just want to access the text. For example, snapping a photo of a postal tracking number (have you tried entering these accurately by hand? Doable but tedious. Using this app, you can snap the receipt and run the scan and grab the tracking number from the pdf that's produced and then just drop this into google, to get your tracking information. Hundreds of other uses as well.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This app was great before this latest update.

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.
WHAT A WONDERFUL App.
by Danger bot radiation on 2020/11/02 20:54
HELLO AND GOODAFTERNOON Ladies and Gentleman, how are you doing today so far on your side? NOW THE MAIN Reason why I am writing this particular review is to definitely let you know, that this particular app is a very very beautiful, wonderful and a very very helpful app. This particular app is so helpful, because i can definitely scan all of “My Receipts,” and store all of those scanned documents online in “Thy ICloud.” Meaning i can scan all of “My Receipts,” and store here inside of this particular app. I can definitely use this particular app to scan and transform any type of documents into a “PDF File.” Thank you so much for reading my review.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

great to have this app

I waited for Abode to come out with a mobile app like this that can do the things I do on my desktop with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Now I can finally combine docs, edit the order of pages and delete unwanted ones on my iPad Pro. I think mobile computing will take over even from laptops. The app costs me money each month but very worth it. Thanks for developing this app.

anyone with a little gray hair will appreciate the absence of any universal “language” for documents from a computer. Even MS Word would have problems, with formatting based on the definitions of the printer. Acrobat has changed the world, and those of us who prefer the digital format will forever be thankful.

Excellent Tool
by Macrophil on 2021/04/28 01:18
This software is a must have for those that are a student or do a lot of work with documents and files on a tablet. This app always works excellently, and I have never had any issues with it. The user interface is extremely simple and easy to use. It is very capable and powerful software, and is the best PDF to DOC converter that I have ever used. Normally I am not one to write reviews, but this is just a great app. It does exactly what you want it to all the time really well and I’ve never had any issues with it.

Editing text in PDF ruins line spacing
by Vivre!!! on 2021/04/26 05:45
Tried the PDF convert + edit subscription and it was worthless because it removed all the custom line spacing in the doc when I saved any text changes (even as small as removing one letter from a word). There’s no way in the product to adjust doc line spacing (other than when you’re just in reading / “Liquid” mode, but that doesn’t actual edit the doc, it just changes how you can read the doc while in the app. Maybe this works well if your docs have standard 1-line spacing throughout, but in my case, with sections having intentional, stylistic line spacing, this app+subscription was pointless. I love editing PDF text with Acrobat Pro DC on my computer but this really missed the mark.

It has at features comparable to Books or Kindle. It syncs much better with PDFs in Dropbox including highlights and notes making it my go-to app for my academic bibliography. However, it missing an important feature: ability to have an overall view of a large paper or pdf book. Like kindle and books have. Something to navigate yourself around the overall text, a smart index or Toc etc. And versatility of formats...

In addition the annual payment does not work for occasional use as would a one time payment. I will continue to have to support both Windows and Apple.

I Do NOT Recommend
by scantime on 2021/04/22 13:40
Since August of 2020, I’ve tried to purchase Adobe Acrobat Pro and their bundles hoping to be able to compress documents, convert PDF’s to Word, etc. I’ve been billed monthly, and each time I try to use their options - I am asked to purchase the apps I have paid for and am logged into. I’ve tried to get through to customer service multiple times. Their foreign accents are so thick that I cannot understand them. I’m guessing they either don’t want to reimburse me or don’t know how, since they ultimately just disconnect me after I’ve wasted more than 10 minutes. That is not good customer service! There should be an email option for customer service! I finally notified PayPal to see that I no longer get billed, and I’ve asked them for their help getting me reimbursed for months of payment without receiving the service. I have a health issue and certainly do not have the time for all of the nonsense. Again, I would not recommend Adobe.

I purchased the ability to do that, and it is consistently difficult to get my phone or tablet just to convert it. Today it started telling me it was “verifying my purchase” and will not convert it.. why the procedure to do this simple task is so intensely difficult is beyond me.

by VictoriaSilvis on 2021/04/11 04:53
I don’t do lengthy reviews and only do when I enjoy a good app, or software. After using Adobe acrobat reader actually I wanna get all three Adobe apps, and including this. The only con is why $52 for individuals per month? I know it’s fair but why per month? I won’t complain. I think other companies alike Adobe needs to rely on yearly subscriptions at lower prices. Because I’ve been hearing complaints from people on the media using Adobe apps, so what you could improve is include more colors in Adobe reader, and make the monthly payments for individuals maybe like $25 per year. That’s just my feedback and I ain’t gonna complain, and people just don’t like when people feels their money is robbed, and I’ve notice the prices are getting better. The one for individuals per month probably alright for people who has enough money, and were able to pay per month. It would been helpful if you made an affordable yearly subscription for individuals.

Being Over-Charged through duplicate accounts
by boxipip on 2021/04/08 21:27
I have subscribed using various emails; since changing to another phone, I have not been able to use the Premium features on my first, and preferred, account. The trouble is- I now am paying for the Adobe Scan , the PDF converter, and the first account, with my best files, though free, I can’t use to the full, lest I also add another PAID subscription to it. I’m already paying for 2 of the aforementioned services under emails I had used subsequent to my first account. I’m up to about 30 dollars per month, with scattered files. I can’t just go away and come back like I was wanting to( the device I.D. has to be forgotten for 120 days( or something to that effect), I have no personal assistance that I know if except all the reading material. So now I’m trapped. With the past single premium subscription, I had full functionality. Now I just feel not in control and just bewildered about what to do.
Scam- DO NOT USE
by Bender burp on 2021/04/08 21:15
Thanks for advertising your $70 “upgrade” as a “pdf editor” when I can’t actually remove anything, or overlap an existing text. And if I can, you sure are making it difficult to actually find out how.

3 out of 5 is not bad
by BaddaLucci on 2021/04/07 05:38
I am happy...mostly. 10$ a month, whatever. Just make sure when you convert a pdf you do it in a timely fashion, not three days later. Also, don’t blame the internet connection. It’s been outstanding.

Data privacy is a concern
by Naaldekoker on 2021/04/05 19:35
I have the DC suite of applications and with all these data breaches going on, I am getting more and more concerned about the security of these apps and programs. Although I try to do everything in my power to keep my end of the bargain in terms of changing passwords and additional authentication, it looks like more clouds and storage facilities are being breached and the clients are not being kept abreast of these breaches until something gets leaked.

Don`t let your free trial turn active
by jean2pierre1 on 2021/04/02 19:10
7 days is not enough time to decide if you need an adobe subscription of any kind. But you don’t realize when you do the free trial that you are locked in for a year if it goes active. I thought, “I`ll let it go active for a month and see if i still need it.” After a month I decided I didn’t need it and when I tried to cancel and lo, I had to pay to get out. Customer service was nice but their representative is unable to help as their hands are tied. Sketchy business practice if you ask me...
Muy caro

Premium function to compress files does not work
by Surprisingly Disappointed on 2021/04/02 13:38
The compress files function does not work. It asks you to subscribe, which I have done quite a while ago. It’s the only button to click so I did and it simply tells me I’m already subscribed but doesn’t let me get to a place to activate compression of my pdf file. It’s a loop you can’t get out. Contacted support. They said they don’t help anymore. How’s that for a crap company?

Adobe is incredibly money-grubbing and Acrobat is nonfunctional. When the prepackaged reader from Apple is more user-friendly, you know it's bad.

Bad business model
by Mbf2013 on 2021/03/30 23:45
The app experience is OK. Like desktop acrobat it feels like bloatware. The UI is crowded and often not intuitive. The whole experience is dominated by efforts to get you to sign in and sign up for a ridiculously expensive monthly fee for what is ultimately just a PDF reading/annotation app

If your app is free then don’t charge.
by marzave6996 on 2021/03/30 16:39
Very disappointed because so many times they say it’s but it’s not. Trial Version are not really free because you end up paying. Make sure you put “in-app purchase” and state this is not a free version but a limited time trail version.

Hangs iPad 5 on IPADOS 14.4.2
by Moonitz on 2021/03/28 04:03
While doing simple edits on a PDF, such as a Comment, or Note, it will fail to actually ‘Post’ the Comment or Note but instead, the ‘Note’ or ‘Comment’ will just disappear as well as the ‘field’ in which I created the Note or Comment. Closing and re-opening this application will not clear the problem, only closing the app and cycling the power on my iPad will clear this problem.
Links are back!!

Very limited
by Anna81986 on 2021/03/27 16:56
If you got this app to quickly convert say a PDF to JPEG on the go- don’t bother. You can do very limited actions or editing on this app- it’s not worth it and chances are you’re going to waste more time with this app then you would if you just grab your laptop and make edits there. Unless you want to edit a word here or there- don’t bother.
Undo/Redo buttons in main menu/top of screen
by Error Reporting 2020 on 2021/03/27 15:35
Hello. I was wondering if you could put the undo and redo buttons at the top menu of the screen while editing (ie. Make them always visible!) Else, I have to press the 3 dots, then select undo/redo, making editing very inconvenient when you have to search for buttons! They should already be in place for faster editing. It’s like if I had a remote control, I would have to select the menu, then press rewind or fast forward. On a remote control, the buttons are already there in position, ready to fire. Thank you.

Weak product
by jtraba on 2021/03/25 19:52
Look, if you can’t provide all the bells and whistles for this to go with IPad, and IPad software, you are worthless to me. You can’t convert PDF to jpeg. As a result if you are using an iPad you can’t post PDF files to Facebook because you can’t convert them to jpeg. If I had a startup I would compete against you and provide that, and many other services. I would gladly pay for the upgrade except an upgrade is not provided. Get you stuff together folks.
Useless so far

Useless
Subscription Based
by redcorvid on 2021/03/24 19:31
It’s advertised as a free app, but requires a hefty subscription to do anything but add your signature. I wouldn’t mind an upfront payment, or some extra features requiring a subscription, but this is unusable and ridiculous.
Does What It Should
by Spiral Geronimo on 2020/12/19 17:39
In general I find Adobe products (I have many) do what they should do without much of a problem and Acrobat DC is no different... once you climb the learning curve, which is often steep considering the range of functionality. Though some object to subscription models, the need to keep programs updated to meet requirements of your OS is a great convenience. Apple keeps up a regular pace of changes, most of which are positive, so having other programs kept up to date is critical. I often turn Word, Pages (Mac OS), images, scans, etc. into PDF’s for convenience, especially when sending by email, some needing passwords for sensitive documents, or messaging app on an iMac. One improvement I would recommend is that the program ought to enable “tagging” that is compatible with Mac OS tagging. I haven’t a clue about how Windows PC folks find Acrobat DC but in general my forays into the Windows PC world have left me feeling that the Windows version of anything is clunkier, less user friendly and more frustrating than the Apple version.
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!
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.
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.
Good app for my studies
by VictoriaSilvis on 2021/04/11 04:53
I don’t do lengthy reviews and only do when I enjoy a good app, or software. After using Adobe acrobat reader actually I wanna get all three Adobe apps, and including this. The only con is why $52 for individuals per month? I know it’s fair but why per month? I won’t complain. I think other companies alike Adobe needs to rely on yearly subscriptions at lower prices. Because I’ve been hearing complaints from people on the media using Adobe apps, so what you could improve is include more colors in Adobe reader, and make the monthly payments for individuals maybe like $25 per year. That’s just my feedback and I ain’t gonna complain, and people just don’t like when people feels their money is robbed, and I’ve notice the prices are getting better. The one for individuals per month probably alright for people who has enough money, and were able to pay per month. It would been helpful if you made an affordable yearly subscription for individuals.
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.
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.
!!!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
Only a basic reader
by dtnel72 on 2020/10/26 09:27
This is only a basic reader and not much more. I find that it lacks the ability to select multiple PDF files that you may have stored in your cloud account and then transfer them simultaneously to the device. A good example would be I have about 35 files I want to transfer to my device from my iCloud account and I have to go through and manually transfer each one of them one at a time. I have Google searched trying to find a way to batch move files but I cannot seem to find that I know the option used to be there before and be very easy. If it’s something that I have to pay for and I will continue using my dropbox account in the same manner it just will only take one extra step and stead of 35 extra steps. To sum it up basically you get a basic reader with Adobe acrobat reader and that’s about all you’re going to get. You can Open, read and share files but in my opinion I don’t see a whole lot more unless they’re not really advertising their products.
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
Mostly Satisfied withLittle Issues
by memko35 on 2020/09/19 17:34
I like Adobe and use it for most of my readings and note taking needs. However, lately I came across an issue. I have a document which I could read and make changes in the beginning. However, Adobe is losing the pages of my document. The pages get blank and receive an error message that “some of the properties of document is not supported this version of Adobe acrobat”. Reuploading the same document fixes the issue; however, after taking some notes and highlighting lines, the same error pops up and my pages disappear. This issue does not happen on all the documents. So, it’s document specific issue. However, if there is an unsupported thing on the document, the app should not show everything perfect. After you work on it getting and error message is something undesirable.
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.
Being Over-Charged through duplicate accounts
by boxipip on 2021/04/08 21:27
I have subscribed using various emails; since changing to another phone, I have not been able to use the Premium features on my first, and preferred, account. The trouble is- I now am paying for the Adobe Scan , the PDF converter, and the first account, with my best files, though free, I can’t use to the full, lest I also add another PAID subscription to it. I’m already paying for 2 of the aforementioned services under emails I had used subsequent to my first account. I’m up to about 30 dollars per month, with scattered files. I can’t just go away and come back like I was wanting to( the device I.D. has to be forgotten for 120 days( or something to that effect), I have no personal assistance that I know if except all the reading material. So now I’m trapped. With the past single premium subscription, I had full functionality. Now I just feel not in control and just bewildered about what to do.
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?
I Do NOT Recommend
by scantime on 2021/04/22 13:40
Since August of 2020, I’ve tried to purchase Adobe Acrobat Pro and their bundles hoping to be able to compress documents, convert PDF’s to Word, etc. I’ve been billed monthly, and each time I try to use their options - I am asked to purchase the apps I have paid for and am logged into. I’ve tried to get through to customer service multiple times. Their foreign accents are so thick that I cannot understand them. I’m guessing they either don’t want to reimburse me or don’t know how, since they ultimately just disconnect me after I’ve wasted more than 10 minutes. That is not good customer service! There should be an email option for customer service! I finally notified PayPal to see that I no longer get billed, and I’ve asked them for their help getting me reimbursed for months of payment without receiving the service. I have a health issue and certainly do not have the time for all of the nonsense. Again, I would not recommend Adobe.
Failure to launch app
by old nontechie user on 2020/07/20 00:42
So far I can’t get it to do anything but offering other connected adobe subscriptions that I could purchase. All I wanted to do was open the installation and use instructions for a composting toilet. This has so far not been productive. Can’t find the document in what I could access. I have no interest in purchasing other subscriptions when the free one doesn’t seem to do anything but tell me about the wonderful options in the services I could pay for. Even though I don’t do much of anything with this type of activity now that I have retired. If my download is here somewhere than it might be better if there were titles/instructions that non technical user could access and understand. Difficult to work up enthusiasm for purchasing one of the more advanced subscriptions when the free one that I only needed to be able to read one document, was unable to provide that service for me. Thank you anyway C R Zook
Awesome job and User Friend
by APTMSAND on 2020/11/11 21:22
To Adobe and all your employees, You have been able to create The most user-friendly software I have ever seen and used. I am simply a end-user one person but I am very lucky to have run across such a program that makes my job so much easier to be able to sort quotes and deliver a professional looking quote.I upload a template for whatever I need like a survey on the store lighting refrigeration or a repair for SERVICE Quote sheet. So I like to thank you for all your hard work and I appreciate each and every employee for contributing to such a great platform to work off of!!! Michael Sandlin
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
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.
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.
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 :)
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.
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.
What’s wrong with the search option?
by 22Dweb22 on 2020/12/11 19:07
This was my go-to app for use with my Native American language pdf’s. I could search by typing words or parts of words, and it would highlight anything with those combinations. The past few months it just brings me to a page with zero highlights, so I have to search the whole page for the entry it wants to show me. Other times it will tell me the item is not found, even though it’s right on the page. I retype the exact same thing and then it highlights. Basically, search results are very inconsistent, and I’ve been using this app for 6 years. It even does this on my PC now. It brings up entries I didn’t even type in, so I have to switch to “case sensitive”. It’s been pretty frustrating to use this app when it used to work so well up until mid year.
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!
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!
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.
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.
Super versatile document scanning from mobile devices
by tigherj on 2020/12/18 17:32
This app is incredibly useful if you need to capture small documents to save or share using a mobile phone or tablet, and the OCR (optical character recognition) is super helpful when you just want to access the text. For example, snapping a photo of a postal tracking number (have you tried entering these accurately by hand? Doable but tedious. Using this app, you can snap the receipt and run the scan and grab the tracking number from the pdf that's produced and then just drop this into google, to get your tracking information. Hundreds of other uses as well.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
WHAT A WONDERFUL App.
by Danger bot radiation on 2020/11/02 20:54
HELLO AND GOODAFTERNOON Ladies and Gentleman, how are you doing today so far on your side? NOW THE MAIN Reason why I am writing this particular review is to definitely let you know, that this particular app is a very very beautiful, wonderful and a very very helpful app. This particular app is so helpful, because i can definitely scan all of “My Receipts,” and store all of those scanned documents online in “Thy ICloud.” Meaning i can scan all of “My Receipts,” and store here inside of this particular app. I can definitely use this particular app to scan and transform any type of documents into a “PDF File.” Thank you so much for reading my review.
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.
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.
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.
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.
