Closet Luddite

Good to read docs: wish the form fill function worked better  Closet Luddite  4 star

This app is fine for basic reading. I like the new scan function too. But it's frustrating that the interactive form fill does not work like the computer version of the app.

Super easy and convenient  jt guy  5 star

Lets me save manuals from online


Can't use what I'm paying for  Gjs773  1 star

I'm trying to convert my word files into PDF, I've tried to contact Adobe more than once in this issue... No response. Everytime I go to convert it takes me to the subscribe screen. If I try to subscribe it says I'm already subscribed.


Great App!  Unicorn302  4 star

I love Acrobat Reader and I use it all the time. I wish I could stay signed in so as not to have to sign in every time. And file management is a bit confusing on my iPad but other than that, love it!

Worked once now I have to pay to use ok IPAD No way!


Missing key features  Ralph123454321  2 star

Can’t save a pdf viewed in any cloud to Apples Files Doesn’t have the slider on the side to quickly scroll thru pages that I can find. In fact I don’t see this feature on any mobile app making it useless for a large document View an index but you can’t jump to a page number


Adobe Reader  Bonjwag  5 star

App is now working. Update is not stuck anymore. Glad it is fixed.


Great App  Georgeinturlock  5 star

One of the most useful app on my iPad. Wish the saving process from Dropbox can be enhanced to allow multiple files to be saved simultaneously.


Essential App  Andy2baker  5 star

One of the top 10 apps for any phone, pad or computer. Multiple daily use for PDF files


App not comparable  rileykeira  1 star

Magnificent  Sir Reginald von bartlesby  4 star

This is an amazing app with multiple features the best one is the fact to download PDFs, but the page doesn't cover the entire screen which is unsatisfactory I'm sure there is a reason for that though, all in all it's great get it for phones, iPads, computers everything should have it.


Adobe Acrobat  Growing60  5 star

This is the best app for reading PDFs on an ipad. I use it every day. Transfer to the cloud and then to desktop computer is easy with the latest version. This is one of my absolutely essential apps.


Very good  pokip  5 star

Does what I'd like it to do and a bit more.


Very good app  Jilaladen  5 star

Thanks for your efforts


Crashes every time  happymelonie  1 star

I have never had problems until this update and now I can not access any previous documentation I have saved within this app. Please fix this problem.


Excellent service  Cozieb  5 star

Very happy to once again to be banking with Westpac Janelle I found very professional and friendly and definitely rate more than 10%. I will be looking forward to changing Banks from Suncorp to Westpac. I used to work for Westpac years of service 20 years and I was a very dedicated officer and was proud to work for Westpac.

Why another app for scans!?  Lenny1188  1 star

Do we really need to go through ten steps just to scan a doc? Bring back the last version which was perfect.


Could be improved damaged docs when opening  Thissucks7  3 star

Each time I allow docs to upload and click Open With tells me the file could not open damaged... Please fix bugs...


Unable to sign in to access my cloud files  IhateDTV  1 star

I am unable to sign in to access my cloud files. I have the latest updated IOS 11.0.3 and newest updated version of this reader. All I get when I click on the home button, my account, is a greyed-out “my account” screen, and a spinning wheel that spins forever. Yes, I have a good cell signal. Please help.


Like it a lot  246cat  4 star

The app is great!! I can easily save and open PDF files. Much more user friendly than the app I was using before.


new version forces additional app for scanning  I2403978  1 star

I (until today) recommended this as the best app i’d ever used. The built in scanner functionality was an amazing timesaver. Why the current version removed this, forces me to install an additional scanning app, which requires an Adobe ID which i dont want (complete with email advertisments, wow!) and doesnt even provide the same features (identify, click, and save feature now replaced with a horrible automatic scan) is beyond me. I actually recommended this to my employer for use by everyone, now I am ashamed to have done that. Will not recommend again.


A Fail for Editing  asimmon  1 star

This is a huge fail for editing PDFs. I need to be able to use the full annotations I have on my computer when I edit PDFs on my iPad. The best I can do is highlight what needs to be edited so I can locate the edits to add notes when I’m at my computer. To make this app worse is the inability to create a bookmark. When I am editing a large PDF I don’t want to scroll through dozens of pages to get to where I stopped at and I’m not going to remember the page number the next day. I am very disappointed Adobe.


Forgetful App - A Pain  Litteralis  2 star

What a stupid app. Every now and then, it all rolls back to zero. It forgets everything you have ever taught it: all “Recent” files are gone, and if you have synced it with, say, Dropbox, or another cloud, it forgets about it, and makes you go through it again. Pitiful. But the price is about right. Adobe, you’re better than this.


Horrible at syncing Dropbox files  UCLA2021  1 star

Horrible at syncing Dropbox files; not all of my files from Dropbox appears. I try to use this app to help me with my course readings...but it’s a hit and miss with this thing. It becomes counterintuitive when trying to force stop and restart the app. Secondly, it forgets that my information has been synced, so it asks me multiple times if i would like to include my Dropbox files onto adobe...


Needs a better tutorial  Ratibala  5 star

I like this app. I use it for work every day. My whole company does uses it on iPhones and Android phones. The only problem I have with it is that it needs a better tutorial about how to save and how to type in areas when you have a writable PDF. Before you use this app for work, investigate it, it will take them a while to understand how things work on it and how to navigate the app.
