Much like all of the other programs associated with Adobe, the Reader is free to download and install. Updates take place on a regular basis and these improvements are likewise free.
The main purpose of this program is to edit and view Portable Document Format (PDF) files. These files were previously used in conjunction with Acrobat Reader, Exchange and Acrobat.com.
This software package has been tested and developed by the team at Adobe. Official versions are completely safe to install. As always, Softonic makes certain that all programs are free from viruses and other types of malicious threats.
The total file size of this bundle is 38.97 megabytes. This is significantly less than previous versions while the program is even more streamlined. Most users will therefore not have any issues in terms of memory allocation or processing power.
The latest version of Reader is known as Acrobat Reader DC. While the program is still able to view and modify PDF documents, users can now take full advantage of cloud-based storage. This is a massive benefit in terms of security and redundancy.
Adobe has always take a great deal of pride in offering flexible options for users. It is therefore possible to obtain versions for both Android and iOS devices (such as tablets and mobile phones).
Updates occur as they are needed. Some are meant to resolve security issues while others fix minor bugs that may be present. Users have the option of setting all updates to automatic so they can take advantage of the latest changes as they become publicly available.
This program will normally be installed within the "Programs" menu. It is also possible to determine the destination of the file during the download process. An icon will appear embedded within the desktop so that it can be accessed with the click of a button.
The main difference is that this reader employs Adobe Document Cloud technology. However, a handful of other advancements have taken place. A centralized dashboard provides immediate access to all of the most common viewing and editing tools. A "Fill & Sign" option allows users to quickly fill out and sign documents; ideal for business purposes. Finally, some versions of Windows phones are now supported.
It is always possible to uninstall this program. Assuming that it has been downloaded from Softonic, users will navigate to the Add/Remove programs option within the Control Panel. Once the uninstall option is chosen, the user will be guided through the remaining steps. It may be necessary to restart the computer once the removal has been completed.
