View PDF documents, add annotations, store your files in OneDrive, Google Drive or Dropbox and sync them between your devices. Convert PDF to the Word format, add your e-signature and write comments. Access to Adobe Online services, highlight text, and so on.

Probably everyone who owns a computer used Adobe Acrobat Reader at least once or has it installed on their PC. But what is Adobe Acrobat Reader?
Well, as the name implies, is a powerful software that lets you view and print PDF documents, which stands for Portable Document Format.
The software is free, but if you want to enjoy some of the extra features such as an unlimited number of file conversions or easy sharing you need to pay a monthly or yearly subscription.

It comes packed in a modern and friendly interface, with a great mixture of colors and noncolors. The main interface is composed of a Menu bar, a toolbar with different tool options, navigation buttons and of course, the document view.

As for its functionalities, with Acrobat Reader, besides viewing and annotating PDF files, you can convert PDFs to Word or Excel with just a few clicks.
Furthermore, it offers the option to add your e-signature so you don't have to type responses. You just submit the form electronically and save it.

And, if you need to work on your documents, you can do it from anywhere because Acrobat Reader is connected to Adobe Document Cloud. Also, you can access and store files in Box, Dropbox, or Microsoft OneDrive.

In the end, it's needless to say how important is to have a PDF reader installed on your PC. But what I have to mention is that, if you want to have the most powerful and responsive PDF reader, that embeds any top features from the market, you have to do choose Adobe Acrobat Reader.
