Adobe Reader is one of those applications many people don’t use very often. However, those that use it do so very frequently. Adobe has recently rolled out updates to its mobile offering of Adobe Reader which includes many new enhancements. One of which is cloud storage.

Adobe Reader’s new cloud storage feature seems to use Google Drive to upload documents. From there you can share them between all your devices. This makes it much easier to keep your work flowing if you have to switch devices.

Aside from the awesome cloud storage feature, Adobe Reader will also have the following additional features.

  • Fill out and submit online forms from Adobe FormsCentral
  • Forms support for Validation, Formatting, and Calculation
  • Calculations using Form Field Hierarchies
  • Select and mark up vertical and Asian text
  • View rights managed documents with dynamic watermarks

So there is now a plethora of new features and methods for dealing directly with created documents. This includes better support for different languages.

When can I get the Adobe Reader update?

It depends, really. If you own an Android device, then you should have received the update notification from the Play Store already. If not, just open the Play Store and go get it. Or you can simply go here to get it. If you’re on an iOS device, you’re still on a waiting list. Apple hasn’t approved the application for release on the App Store yet. Nicely done, Apple.
