Upgrade to Reader X Needed for Touch R/T?

This app has worked flawlessly until now only just recently - Now, absolutely NOTHING opens on my original Surface R/T - a flash page appears saying to update to "Reader-X", but Reader-X says it will not install on R/T! ...So now what?? "Upgrade" also does not seem to be available directly through the store either! - HELP!!!

Great app

Thanks! This is a great application for highlighting and underlining but it needs some fixes with the underlining. The underline is sometimes off and appears above or across the text instead of under it.

Does not work!

My learning modules have PDF included in the reading and they come up blank Have tried multiple times to fix the issue, but nothing works. Microsoft 8 is also worthless. Looking forward to the update, maybe it will work then??

It´s simply the best experience for reading PDF. It is really smooth and jumping from page to page is delightful.

No reflow text on zoom?

I have the android version and one of the best features for reading is the reflow text when you pinch to zoom. Can't find that feature in the windows app.

I can read my PDFs

Does what I need it do so I'm happy. I suppose it could benefit from some more navigation options and other features like placing bookmarks or something but it's free so I can't complain. :-) Also I'm using this app on a Surface Pro 3 so my specific device might be influencing my rating. Maybe it doesn't work so well on other devices. I stand corrected. You can add bookmarks. Isn't that special!

Terrible application

It's a PDF reader and you can't print with it. Definitely a backtrack from the Adobe reader program from Microsoft XP. No print option at all. Plus, you can't close a file in it ... keeps them all up on the bar. No options for navigation, very little for explanation either. Skip the download all together and read your PDFs with a different app or program.

Update to Adobe Acrobat Reader DC please!

The desktop app as well as iOS and Android have been updated. Please update! Also give us the option to have multiple PDFs open please.

It is smooth and fast, but needs ANY inking support. Also no tabbing feature nor multiple window support which makes it horrible for those who need multiple PDFs open.

Missing Functionality

The fact this application lacks freehand comments is an immense oversight by Adobe. The Android, iOS, and (now) Desktop versions of Reader support this functionality. This version of Reader is less effective than any other product.
