Adobe today made Adobe Reader for iOS available free on the Apple App Store.
This new PDF reader makes it easier to view and interact with any PDF file on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Now you can view the widest range of PDF file types - including PDF Portfolios, password-protected PDF documents and Adobe LiveCycle rights-managed PDF files.
Using Adobe Reader for iOS, you can open and view PDF files from email, on the Web or from any application that supports the "Open In" function.
You can also interact with PDF files in a number of ways including searching for specific text in the PDF or using bookmarks and page thumbnails to quickly navigate to different sections in the PDF file. And should you need a hard copy, you can also print the PDF wirelessly using iOS AirPrint.
