Adobe Reader X: The Best PDF Reader for Mobile Platforms
Over the past two decades, the Portable Document Format (PDF), developed by Adobe Systems, has become the industry standard for clean and secure documents. There are many PDF-viewing applications available across the various app markets. However, you can't go wrong with Adobe's sleek-looking and versatile PDF reader, Adobe Reader X.
Adobe Reader X offers two PDF-viewing options. The standard zoom-and-scan option, where users can manipulate the document by using their fingers to zoom in and out; and reflow, which presents the text in a single column and fits in nicely into the available document pane. This interface, which presents the text in a linear format, makes reading the PDF text exponentially simpler. Reflow is not readily available in other non-Adobe PDF readers.
Adobe Reader X also offers users options to view PDF portfolios, password protected PDFs, and annotations. Users can also bookmark sections of a PDF and offers an easy-to-use search interface where users can find specific content within a PDF. Users can also provide feedback through the use of sticky notes or text-based options such as the ability to strikethrough, highlight, and underline the text of the document.
For internet functionality, Adobe Reader X offers integration with the user's default browser and Email client allowing for quick access to links and correspondence while viewing a PDF file.
Adobe Reader X offers all the bells and whistles that you should be looking for when searching the app stores for a PDF viewer. Available in 16 languages and completely free to use, the Adobe Reader X app offers a complete solution to your mobile PDF-viewing needs. It's always nice when it doesn't take a third party to get things right..
