‘Adobe Reader’ Debuts for the iPhone and iPad

by Marianne Schultz

Adobe, the California-based software giant, has released Adobe Reader for the iPhone and iPad. Adobe Reader is free and hit the App Store this morning, offering PDF document viewing and printing capabilities to iPhone and iPad users.

Adobe Reader is the free global standard for reliably viewing and sharing PDF documents across platfoms and devices. Easily and efficiently access the widest range of PDF file types—including PDF Portfolios, password-protected PDF documents and Adobe LiveCycle rights-managed PDF files. Now available for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, Adobe Reader offers fast, high-quality interaction with PDF.

Adobe Reader joins several existing Adobe apps in the App Store, including its Photoshop companion apps for the iPad, Eazel, Nav and Lava, which were released in May.

Adobe is a little late to the game with an app for the digital document standard it created in the early 90’s since dedicated PDF-viewing apps, like GoodReader, ReaddleDocs and others, have been available  in the App Store for some time. However, it appears to be the only PDF-viewer currently in the App Store that supports files secured by Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management, a DRM protection scheme that’s part of a suite of enterprise-level products and services offered by the software company.
