Adobe Acrobat Reader

Adobe Acrobat Reader is a timeless classic boasting all the features you want and expect from a professional PDF app. Acrobat Reader’s most basic features include opening PDF documents from e-mails, the internet, and apps supporting sharing, in-document searching, zooming, continuous scroll, and reading mode. With Acrobat Reader, you can comment on PDFs in style using sticky notes and drawing tools, and highlight text with annotation tools. To the delight of extremely busy professionals always on the go, you can fill out PDF forms and e-sign documents with your finger. Downloading Acrobat Reader gets you a free Adobe Document Cloud which you can connect to your Dropbox, and not only store and share files in the cloud, but also print them straight from your Android device. Acrobat Reader offers plenty of in-app purchases – Acrobat Pro DC, Adobe PDF Pack, and Adobe Export PDF – which further boost the app’s abilities, but most users will be more than satisfied with the free version.

CamScanner – Phone PDF Creator

With over 100 million installs in more than 200 countries and regions, CamScanner prides itself as the number one mobile document scanning and sharing app in the world. CamScanner is an immensely useful app for professionals, since it helps you in scanning, storing, synchronizing, and collaborating on contents across multiple devices. By putting your phone’s camera to work, you can scan any document you need, optimize scan quality, search in the document entering any keyword, extract texts from image for editing or sharing, and instantly print out your document. Thanks to CamScanner’s advanced editing tools, you can make annotations or add a customized watermark, and with the collaboration options, you can invite friends and colleagues to contribute to your project. CamScanner’s downside is that some of its features are only available for registrants and that documents created in the app’s free version are watermarked, but with a relatively low price tag of $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year, professionals with a heavy workload requiring CamScanner’s advanced features will surely shell out that amount to make their lives easier; while everyday users will not think twice to reject in-app offers.

Ebook & PDF Reader

To add a splash of variety sauce to our mini-compilation, let us take a closer look at Ebook & PDF Reader, which, as its name suggests, is mainly for reading e-books. Ebook & PDF Reader’s best feature is the extent of customization it allows on a per-book basis: you can tailor each document according to your preferences to deliver the best possible reading experience. The app sports a book shelf look, with the shelves displaying your recently read documents. As for other features, Ebook & PDF Reader comes with a night mode, in-document search options, adjustable screen orientation, font size adjustment, bookmarking, free e-books and e-book shopping, document border cutting to get rid of that hard-on-the-eyes white border, and many more. Ebook & PDF Reader brings you exactly what it promises: enhanced reading experience on your Android device – and does so for free, which, unfortunately, results in way too many ads for our liking, leaving a stain on an otherwise great app.
