[topic moved to Reader/Acrobat DC for Mobile forum]
I've used an iPad for several years and have no idea what you mean by the "activities window". Can you give us a screen shot or describe what you're seeing more clearly, please, so we can help you.
Do you mean "how do I download Adobe Acrobat for my iPad so it appears on my home screen?" Answer: Download it from the App Store. Then open it are read the Help file.
Your answer is blank. This sometimes happens when you email replies.

Hi Steve thanks for getting back to me.
Here are two screen shots to help - I'd like the Acrobat option to appear as an option to read a PDF along side the other options. The second screen shot referenced "activities", which why I used that reference - didnt know how else to describe the capability.
I don't recognize the Activities window you're showing.
I think I'll let the Acrobat DC staff try to answer your question. Good luck.
when you press down on the PDF file for a second or two, the second screenshot window actual appears first. How do I get Adobe option to appear here. Thanks
Would you make sure that the Acrobat Reader app is installed on your iPad first?
If the Acrobat Reader app is already installed, the popover should look like this. You do not need to look for it in the More > Activities popover.
This is documented in the Open from Mail section "(b) Long-press the attachment icon" of the following FAQ document.
Please let us know if it works for you. Thank you.
Hi, the popover is still not showing up as you indicate. Is there some hidden setting that needs to be adjusted for the icon to show up? Thanks for the help. Dave
What is the iOS version on your iPad? By looking at the Print and Quick Look icons, I just assumed that your iPad is running iOS 8. Is it correct?
When you press & hold over the square PDF icon
the popover (shown in the second screenshot in your reply #5 in the thread) should show all of the installed apps that are capable of handling the PDF document.
However, your popover does not look normal.
The popover should include Mail and iBooks, which are pre-installed on iOS 8. (As a matter of fact, you cannot even uninstall Mail or iBooks from iOS 8.)
So this is not just a problem with Acrobat Reader. I am not sure why other icons for installed apps that can handle PDF documents (e.g. iBooks, Kindle) do not appear as options in the popover.
What is the name of the app that is shown in your screenshots? Once again, I just assumed that it's Apple Mail with PDF attachments.
HI, I'm on iOS 8.3 and the mail app is tied to Lotus Notes. But you raise a good point is iBooks is also not reflect, perhaps I need to investigate with the Apple team or with IBM since the other two programs that are appearing (Maas 360 and Connections) are IBM products and could be preventing other document readers from being added....?
Apparently, your iPad is configured for Enterprise. IBM MaaS360 is the MDM (Mobile Device Management) app that manages other apps on your iPad.
I'd recommend consulting your company's IT department regarding the iOS apps that are allowed to run on your iPad.
