App of the Week: Adobe Reader

What is it?

The Adobe Reader for mobile app allows you to view and work on PDF files on the go in a convenient way, and it’s all free! While you're on the move, this app allows you to interact like you would on your desktop.

Adobe Reader enables you to annotate PDFs by adding comments using sticky notes or the typewriter, and you can even draw on the screen with the freehand drawing tool. But most importantly, you can quickly fill out forms by typing text into fillable fields. Save and forward the forms and it’ll be just as quick as doing it at your desk.

Seeing as you're using your mobile, you may as well use it to your advantage, right? Use your finger to e-sign any PDF document so it doesn’t matter if you’ve forgotten your pen! If there’s particular information you’re looking for, the search text option saves you plenty of time so you don’t have to trawl through pages of text. 

Who is it for?

If your busy schedule requires you to travel regularly while there’s always a chance of important business coming up, Adobe Reader is the perfect solution. Have confidence that forms are correct and in the correct format with this great app.

When running your own business, it’s important you’re on top of the busy workload and Adobe Reader allows you to control essential elements of running your own brand.

Having the ability to export documents and quickly fill out forms while on the go - and from the comfort of a train journey - makes life less stressful and it'll allow you to maximise your potential.

How will it improve my day-to-day? 

Being able to access and edit PDF files on your mobile device makes life a lot easier. If you’re constantly on the move or have a busy schedule, dealing with tasks conveniently is essential.

So using Adobe Reader on your mobile device saves loads of time and allows you to use your time wisely. Also, it’s much better to be able to fill out forms on your mobile then spending hours filling our forms with a pen!

Do I have to pay? 

The app is completely free to use though there is an in-app subscription service. This allows you to convert images and documents to PDF and export PDF files to Word or Excel. This costs around £6.00 a month or £15.00 per year.
