Adobe Does a PDF Reader for Android

More Adobe-Google synergy: Adobe has released a version of its Reader software for Android. iPhone and iPad owners have third-party PDF readers but not an official Adobe one. Adobe does say that fans of other platforms should “stay tuned,” which brings up an interesting question: In the wake of the Flash mess, will Adobe shy away from Apple’s mobile platforms or redouble its efforts to do cool things on them? I’d vote for the latter response…

    A better question would be: why has it taken so long in the first place?

    Because Adobe moves at the pace of a PC monopolist.

    More to the point: What has Android done that is so wrong that it deserves to be saddled with Acrobat Reader. (And no, dropping the Acrobat out of the name doesn’t pit any distance between it and its brethren in my books.)

    I can honestly say that Acrobat Reader is one of the worst examples of bloatware I’ve ever encountered. I always replace it with FoxIt on PCs and Apple’s Preview makes it unnecessary on the Mac.

    I use RepliGo Reader to view and annotate PDFs.
