Adobe Reader Update for Android with improvements.
The users will now be able to add free-hand annotations. Simply use the new “Freehand” option from the context menu, or the Pencil button from the Commenting Toolbar, to make drawings or write down a comment.
Users can also easily mark up PDF content with the freehand drawing tool or the highlight, strikethrough, and underline annotation tools.
Furthermore, any annotation can be customized by changing the drawing's color, opacity, and thickness. Obviously, it's also possible to resize or delete any drawing.
Comments can be added with the new Sticky Note function. Users only need to long press anywhere on the page to add a comment, or open up the sticky note via the dedicated Commenting Toolbar at the top.
Secondly, the latest version of Adobe Reader adds a useful feature that allows users to place their signatures on documents right within the application. This function is accessible from the Commenting Toolbar and via the “Signature” option from the context menu.
Last but not least, the application brings the ability to fill out PDF forms, as well as the possibility to send PDF files to others for electronic signing with Adobe EchoSign.
Aside from the new features mentioned above, Adobe Reader 10.2 comes with the following performance and stability enhancements:
- Email attachments are now stored on permanent storage;
- The ability to delete files from within Adobe Reader’s File Browser (tap and hold on a file, and then select the option menu item).
Adobe Reader 10.2 is now available as a free download via Google Play store and it should be fully compatible with all devices running Android 2.2 and up.
