Adobe Acrobat Reader overview

Adobe Acrobat Reader allows users to view PDF documents. You may not know what a PDF file is, but you've probably come across one at some point. PDF files are used by companies and even the IRS to distribute documentation and other pieces of information about their products, and Adobe Acrobat Reader is the essential interpreter. Acrobat integrates directly with your Web browser, so if you come across a PDF document on the Web, you can view it directly from within your Netscape or Internet Explorer browser window. Acrobat also makes printing much more practical, by guaranteeing that the printout will look exactly like it does on your screen.

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC software is the free global standard for reliably viewing, printing, and commenting on PDF documents.

And now, it's connected to the Adobe Document Cloud − making it easier than ever to work across computers and mobile devices.

It's the only PDF viewer that can open and interact with all types of PDF content, including forms and multimedia.

How do I get Adobe Reader on my Mac?
  • Go to MacUpdate to download the Adobe Reader.
  • Click the green "Download" button.
  • Open the file from your downloads folder and go through the installation process.
  • Once you have gone through the installation process you can launch the app from your "Applications" folder.

I've now erased all trace of everything Adobe. I consider it an act of computer security. I won't be bothering with Adobe anything every again.

WORD IS: MacOS 14 Sonoma is going to integrate TOTAL PDF management, making all other PDF apps, including Reader and Acrobat, obsolete. I'll believe it when I see it. But wouldn't it be great to relegate ALL the Adobe PDF security-hole-riddled-crap to the software garbage heap of history? CROSS YOUR FINGERS!

MacUpdate needs to update the pricing above - Adobe Reader has always been free. It's the Pro version that you need a subscription for.

Older versions of macOS (like my High Sierra) are not supported by the recent Acrobat Reader version available here, but *are* supported by older Acrobat Reader versions (like 21.001.20155) downloadable from <https://get.adobe.com/reader/>, and apparently nowhere else...

Acrobat reader is Horrible, I have removed it from all of my computers and have not even needed it. How hard is it to make a reader only app? I DO NOT want to install the whole Acrobat program.

I don't know when this soft became such a crap. People from Adobe - you're doing it terribly wrong. There'll be no exact points written because I wouldn't even know where to start. Avoid by all cost.

Truly just terribly designed software, I'm using a pro Mac computer fully loaded in this thing still has problems, just a joke. The only reason why I'm using it over Mac preview app is I need to do measurements of some drawings otherwise I would not touch this.
