Adobe Acrobat Reader

If you are looking for Adobe Acrobat Reader, you have come to the right place. We explain what Adobe Acrobat Reader is and point you to the official download.

What is Adobe Acrobat Reader?

The Adobe Acrobat Reader is a free and proprietary PDF file viewer from Adobe Systems, as part of their Acrobat line of software that is mostly concerned with the generation, management, and access of PDF (portable document format) files. 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.

Adobe Acrobat is not just one program, contrary to popular opinion; they are a collection of programs, of which the Acrobat Reader is part of. 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.
