The PDF format is a common and open standard that works with many programs, but many people still turn to Acrobat Reader when the time comes to open a document. Adobe has given such folks another reason to keep the app around. Reader now integrates with Dropbox accounts.

When you fire up version 16 for the first time, the app will prompt you to add your Dropbox account. If you do, you can browse files stored online, annotate PDFs, and save changes back to Dropbox. You can share these files directly from inside the app.

This is the big change, but it's not all that appears on the changelog. Phones can now view documents in Immersive mode. For some folks, that change may be a bigger deal.


What's New:

  • Connect your Dropbox account to Acrobat Reader so you can:
    • Browse and open your files.
    • Annotate, edit and sign PDF files.
    • Save changes back to Dropbox.
    • View file listing for linked accounts.
    • Share Dropbox files directly from Acrobat Reader.
    • Manage linked accounts.
  • Go full screen when reading on smaller devices with Immersive mode.
  • Improve text handling with new selectors and enhanced touch sensitivity.
