Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

The newest version of Acrobat Reader adds mobile compatibility

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is the free cross-platform software used to view PDF files created with Adobe Acrobat and other programs. For the most part, Acrobat Reader is used to view, print, and comment on PDF documents. With the newest version, Acrobat Reader DC, you can also fill in and sign PDFs. It is the only PDF reader that opens and interacts with all forms of PDF content. It doesn't generate PDFs.

The Portable Document Format is the global standard for exchanging documents with others. PDFs do not require that the recipient of a PDF have the software, fonts or images of the original document ... just Acrobat Reader to open it. Reader has long been on the scene and is a popular program with most graphic artists and publishing technicians.

Newest Acrobat Reader Embraces Document Cloud

The newest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is connected to the Adobe Document Cloud. This makes working across Android, iOS and Windows Phone mobile devices and computers easy. You can work with PDFs on your computer, tablet or smartphone, and you can open and store PDFs in Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, and Box.
