What is Adobe Acrobat?

Adobe Acrobat is not just one program, as people are wont to think. Acrobat is actually a family (or a suite of applications) of programs that Adobe has developed to facilitate the creation, management and access to Portable Document Format files, or PDF. Though most of the applications in the Acrobat line are commercial programs and must be bought or licensed, most of them separately, only the Acrobat Reader is a freeware and can be downloaded from Adobe’ s website or in the Acrobat mini-site.

The Reader gives users the ability to read PDF files but has limited, if at all, PDF creation capacity. PDF files are favored across the world, especially in commercial establishments and enterprises, as a paperless way to present information that is similar in layout and purpose to a paper publication, especially since most PDF files cannot be modified (read-only), unlike, for example, .doc files. is one of the members of the Acrobat line that converts and transfers PDF files between users, accounts, or networks. Unlike the Reader, is purchased, and has the capability to export PDFs from Word documents, create a collaborative project with other users, and even create PDF files.
