Thanks fr3dd0fr0g, I was just looking for the best place to post the exact same wish list and you have sorted it for me
I would like to say that this an excellent piece of software and having 'upgraded' from my Sony 505 to Android, the PDF reflow is excellent.
EXCEPT when you page down (after working out what the last word was behind the grey heart) and your eyes flick up up to top left to read the first word of the new page and ... it's obscured by a black rectangle telling you what page you are on .
Please, please give the option to remove in the next release, or better still remove and give the option to add it.
I second all the feature requests that have been presented. I would like to add one to the list.
The ability to add highlighting to text and also adding notes to the a high light. I use highlighting all of the time when I am using PDF documents to prepare lessons for instructing classes on my laptop and add notes to page that will help me present the lesson to a class.
I have been testing the Adobe Reader for Android on a Samsung Galaxy Tab. It is one of the best reader I have found so far. I just expect the Adobe to pack a bit more power and usefulness into a product.
We badly want to do a demo on an Android tablet device
but cannot do so until Android Reader supports embedded
links to other PDF files.
This feature is very important to us. Can you give us
a clue as to when/if this feature might be available?
Just wanted to add my voice to the chorus asking for support for Rights Managed PDF documents. This is one of the missing features thats hindering our mobile device strategy at the moment.
Would you please share whether or not the capability to view 3D PDF's in the Android PDF viewer is in the plans for the near future?
I would love to have that as well. Just imagine how incredibly handy that would be on a tablet! And as you're on it, we need Flash-support as well. We've started doing technical documentation using the PDF-format to provide interactive maintenance manuals for machinery and such. We heavily use 3D-Annots and Flash-GUIs for those. Having them run on a mobile device would open up a whole new market for using pdfs.
I'd like to have the following features added to the Android version of the reader:
I wouldn't mind if all the UI elements of the reader shared a single toolbar, not overlapping the text. That way UI elements wouldn't obscure parts of the text and they'd be always available. I'm not really a fan of having to tap to get to the paging buttons, since I need them frequently (the screen is small so it cannot hold a lot of text, which means frequent paging.)
My company is anxiously looking to find out if you will be supporti
ng XFDF, FDF features so we may display and submit forms on Android Tablets!
The marriage of Adobe Forms, the Web and Tablets blows the doors open to numerous new applications and markets and squarely puts Adobe as the focal point of such solutions.
Our software has been PC-based and the 75% of our solution is usable for the tablet market. The other 25% of our functionality relies on displaying and completing Adobe forms over the web. Our customers are BEGGING for it.
So can you PLEASE PROOVIDE INSIGHT AS TO IF/WHEN you would be including full form functionality in the READER product for Android?
Many of us ANXIOUSLY await your resonse! Thanks.
We have a very important trade show we are going to in June
and we very badly want to show our Android school model app
on a tablet at that time. To do that, we need an upgrade
to A10 Reader for the Android OS that includes at least
the ability to click on embedded links in a PDF file and have
them open other PDF files and then go back to the "previous view."
We would need this feature no later than the end of April.
Please advise whether it is likely this feature will be
Overall it is a pretty good application but the lack of a rotation option makes it hard to use for many pdfs.
But I really wish there was a rotation option. I get PDFs all the time that are scanned which are rotated 90 degrees. There is no easy way to view them easily since the sensors in the phone will autorotate the orientation if I rotate the phone to view the document properly.
I would love to see DRM support added. All my text books have a third party protection from Vitrius called protectedpdf. I requires students to log in with their university ID and password in order to unlock the pdf and read it.
I am also a student. I would like to see an update or an ap that allows me to read my E-textbooks on my Android tablet PC. My tablet currently downloads the pdf and it attempts to open it, but I am unable to enter the required username and password to actually see the document.
Adobe, Are there any plans to make this functionality possible?
This is not an adobe issue, The university uses a third party protection software called protectedpdf by Vitrium. Itrium says that they are working on updating the software for Android and Ipad, but there is no release date for a fix or patch. I am guessing that it will be included in a new software release, which would mean the University would have to buy the new release and redo all their textbooks.
Reader for Android needs to support hyperlinks from one PDF to another. There isn't a mobile PDF reader available that can do this, though it seems like a pretty basic feature.
The PDF documents I create are a collection of PDF files that have links from one document to another (example, a Table of Contents document has a list of documents included in the project, each entry in the list is hyperlinked to another PDF). Customers are starting to ask about mobile support for our products, but right now all they can do is read the individual PDFs.
In Android, the only links that work in the document are links to html or links to pages within the same document. I need links that work from one PDF to another, and preferably, links that go to Named Destinations in oher documents.
Interestingly, Good Reader on the iPad 2 follows
links from one PDF to another. What's the problem
with Reader on the Android? Is Adobe just ceding
this whole tablet field to everybody else....?
Adobe Reader for Android is realy nice. I just use it for a few days but am still missing some features known from the desktop version Adobe Reader X.
As a student I get a lot of PDF files. With Adobe Reader X the text highlighting and commenting function was great. I've waited so long for this feature.
So it might be really nice and helpful to have them in the Android (or maybe a special tablet) version.
Bookmarks support is also a often needed feature as others said before.
So you may have a focus on following features to come:
Thank you for your support.
First of all, thanks for your feedback.
We know the features requested by you are very important for a user and, thus, are too much in demand. These are already included in the feature-set of our upcoming releases.So, stay tuned and keep posting your wonderful ideas.
Adobe Reader for Andrioid is the fastest and user friendly PDF reader I found, however, there is one feature is missing on version 9.0.2, it is the "go to page" or "jump page". I have a cruz reader with Android 2.0 for less than a year, and it cannot upgrade to Android 2.1 or higher, that means I cannot install Adobe Reader for Android 10.x, which has the feature I need. Most of PDF documents I read are over 600 pages, without "go to page" function, I cannot use Adobe Reader, I wish Adobe can come out version 9.0.x that has "go to page" functions, thanks.
I am sorry but it is not the case. We do support files created through Adobe Acrobat 8.
It seems to be an issue specific to this document.
1. If possible, can you please share your concerned file with us?
2. Also, can you please tell what happens when you try to open this document? Do you observe any CRASH? Do you get any ERROR DIALOG?
Thanks and regards,
Can you give us any insight into the plans for R10 on the iPad2?
We have a trade show in Dallas in Nov. and would dearly love to feature
our system running on R10 by then. The Good Reader we are using as
a demo now doesn't have the features we need.
Thanks for posting your request.
We hope to have ur request resolved before your event happens in November. You just need to stay tuned.
By the way, what features are you actually looking for?
There are two features that we need badly.
1. The ability to open a PDF-to-PDF link
in a new window. GR opens everything in
one existing window, not good for us.
2. We have links to live surveillance camera
feeds from icons embedded in our security
site and floor plans. These work really well
on an existing Win7 platform. To get them to
work well on an iPad2 with GR is going to be
a development project.
We have already started the development project for (2),
but there are some inherent problems with it in GR
that make it worse than we first thought.
