Adobe launched a new iOS app on Monday and brought its industry standard PDF reader to iOS.
The app is free, and it’s facing stiff competition from a number of paid and free apps. At least one app, Goodreader, has been avalable for iOS since iTunes first sold apps and can beat Adobe Reader in almost every way but price (it costs $2).
The Adobe Reader app has quite a few features, including AirPrint, text reflow, scrolling, zoom and rotate, and it also supports password protected as well as encrypted PDF files.
The DRM support might be this app’s best feature. A few weeks back I was asked for help in finding an iOS app that could read an encrypted PDF. I came up short because neither I nor the community at MobileRead could find an app. Adobe hadn’t released it yet.
