Updated the version that was factory installed on my Android phone to V. 10.1.1 At some point soon after, the icon vanished from the app icon grid. It still can be accessed via several backhanded means, but I have no way to just open the reader from the apps list now and browse my docs. I uninstalled the updates and it returned. I then updated again and the same thing happened, only now when I uninstall the updates the icon will not return. If I go to the "Remove App" function, it is in that list????
I am not sure what happened here. This should not happen. What brand of phone do you have? I will have our team follow up with the manunfacturer to see if there is something that they have done that is triggering this misbehavior.

Adobe Reader for Mobile
We just released a major update of the Android Reader on the Android Market. Please go and udpate it and let us know if you see any issues.
For more information about this update, check out our blog post at: http://blogs.adobe.com/readermobile/2012/04/10/now-available-comments- forms-and-more-on-adobe-reader-for-ios-android/
Can you please confirm that the 'Apps list' you're talking about is the one on your 'Home Screen'? I mean are you talking about disappearing of the App shortcut that you could have added by dragging-and-dropping the app icon from 'All Applications Grid' to the 'Home Screen'?
If that is so, then firstly you should have the icon in 'All Application Grid' of your phone, secondly the icon on Home Screen should have disappeared because we made some Android activity related changes in our application that might have forced the OS to remove the shortcut from the Home Screen, but those changes were made in 10.1 update, and I think you're facing this problem since then, right?
Same thing happeneing to me. Using HTC EVO Design (but exact same thing happened with my previous HTC EVO 4G). You can see it in "My Apps" in the Market / Play, but not in the apps list, neither can you add a shortcut on your home screen.

Same here. I'm also having this same problem on my Verizon HTC Rezound. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Android Version v2.3.4
HTC Sense v.3.5
Adobe Reader X v.10.2.0, Build 58423
PDF files can only be opened via file manager and choosing Adobe Reader, but creating a shortcut is impossible. HTC Rezound has Adobe Reader as a system package, so it's not removable. Please advise if this will be fixed in the upcoming ICS OTA as it's very annoying. <- forgot, this is HTC's issue.
I think anyone having same issues with Adobe on an HTC Rezound as above, we may have to have HTC deal with it. Hopefully in the next OTA update with ICS, it will be fixed. No guarantees.
<< NOTE >> Can be fixed if you root the Rezound, remove the adobe reader apk from the system and install from play store. but this breaks the phone's warranty, so doubt people will do this.. kinda?
