Adobe Reader

The freeware product presented here is called Adobe Reader. If you ask anyone with some computer experience about an application to read PDF or Portable Document Format files, chances are you’ll get Adobe Acrobat Reader or Adobe Reader as the answer. The computer software company Adobe Systems, which was founded in 1982 by former Xerox PARC employees, has various renown products, such as Flash, Photoshop and Illustrator, but most regular computer users will know Adobe for their introduction of PDF which now is an international standard.

Adobe Acrobat is actually a family of application software and web services and Adobe Reader, formerly known as Acrobat Reader, is part of it. It basically enables users to view, annotate and print PDF files.

Adobe Reader is available for various mobile and desktop platforms, but here we offer you the free download of the Windows desktop version.

Use Adobe Reader to view, print, annotate and interact with PDF files

Here you can download the latest version of the free and renown PDF software solution called Adobe Reader, at the time of writing in its eleventh version. Its first version was released in 1993 and over more than two decades it has seen a significant growth and evolved into the free PDF reader you can get now.

The Portable Document Format has become one of the de facto standards for online exchange of document-based information, as it offers a series of security features and because, independently of hardware and software, it will present its output exactly as intended by its creator, whether printed out or visualized on-screen.

This version of Adobe Reader will not only let you read or print PDF documents, it also enables you to annotate and interact with all types of PDF content, which of course includes forms and even multimedia.

The dedicated commenting tools featured in the latest version of Adobe Reader will allow you to add sticky notes, use lines, shapes and stamps, highlight text and a typewriter for placing comments anywhere in the source document, just like you would do when reading or reviewing a paper-based document.

Nowadays, the trend to saying goodbye to paper forms is also set, as filling out forms in the PDF format has never been easier using Adobe Reader. Moreover, when it comes to documents that need to be signed, the need to print them out has gone too, as Adobe Reader makes it a piece of cake to sign PDF files with your electronic signature.

Last but not least, living in the age of the cloud, this version of Adobe Reader will let you do even more, offering one-click access to the Adobe online services to create your own PDFs, turn PDFs into Office files or build flexible forms quickly.
