PDF is one of the most popular formats for documents. However, your Android phone may not have native support for opening and viewing PDF files. This is where the free Adobe Reader app can help.

The app displays your recently accessed PDF files in a list view. Along with the name, it displays the date of creation of the PDF file and its size. It also comes with a built-in file manager that you may use to browse through various folders on your device or simply choose to see  the other PDF files on the device.

Adobe’s PDF viewer lets you pinch to zoom and even lets you decide the visibility layout of the document for more comfortable reading. It is however more than just a basic PDF reader. You can annotate or comment on PDFs using text tools, highlighter or with a freehand drawing tool.

It can can open password-protected PDFs. You can quickly fill out PDF forms on the mobile, sign and share the saved forms via other apps.

The app  gives an option of screen brightness lock which does prevents the device’s screen from going dim if the app is running.

The app is free for viewing PDF files. However, you can activate additional features – like converting PDFs to Office formats or for creating PDFs from existing files – for a monthly fee.
