    Adobe Reader X Download being Hijakced

    Big Val B

      I am following the instructions for downloading Adobe Reader X onto my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, but when I click "Get Adobe Rearder," instead of going to the dowload page where I am to click "Different language or operating system" I am taken to Google Play where Adobe Reader X is not available.  How can I bypass Google Play?

          You cannot bypass Google Play. Since, its android, you need to install all the applications from Google Play or through the manual .apk file. The Adobe Reader X you were trying to download is not ment for your Android Tab, instead its for your computer.


          I think you are looking for this one. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.adobe.reader&feature=search_result#?t=W2 51bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5hZG9iZS5yZWFkZXIiXQ.. In order to download that onto your phone, simply click on that link and login with your gmail credentials and install.


          Hope that Helps!

            Thanks for letting me know that I cannot bypass Google Play.  But the rest of your information is confusing. 


            First, I am not trying to dowload to a phone but to my tablet like I mention in my first post.

            Second, there is a section under the Adobe Reader X download called, "Different Language or operatng system"and under there you can choose Android, so obviously Adobe Reader X is not only for computers. It was Samsung support who suggested I download this ap. 


            Plus, I already have the Adobe Reader, but it is not doing what I am needing it to do.


            My issus is this...I bought the Galaxy so I could download pdfs to read and annotate.  I have tried a half a dozen readers and none of them are performing very well.  My biggest complaint is that I am not able to highlight or underline text in pdfs that are of older texts.  This is very frustrating.  When I finally am told a solution, I am not able to download it.


            Would I be able to download the Android applicaion from my PC onto a SD card and then use it on my tablet?


            Arpit, I do appreciate your advice.  Thanks again.
