Although Windows 8 and Windows 10 provides a PDF reader, many users still want the usefulness of Adobe Reader. The PDF reader that made history is now available for Windows 8, Windows 10 users. The app is free to download from the Windows 8, Windows 10 Store, along with other Adobe products. The in-built reader in Windows for pdf files isn’t that great, to be honest, and what I hate the most about it is the black background and “narrow” width of files that are opened.

Adobe Reader is a tool that many missed in Windows 10, Windows 8. It has been the main tool for opening PDF documents for many years, and with the occasion of the Windows 8, Windows 10 release, it has received a facelift that is more suitable for the Modern UI. It’ll work like a charm, especially on touch-enabled devices.

The clean Interface that the app has a clean look, with a menu on the left side and a list with recently opened documents in the main part of the screen. For opening new files, you have at your disposal a Modern UI file browser that is pretty easy to use. The app works flawlessly and without a hitch, opening any PDF document very fast.

In the file browser, you have the possibility to search your SkyDrive content, and we hope the future will bring integration to other cloud storage services like Google Drive, Dropbox or Box.com, but for now, it has plenty of uses and it’s a must have app for your Windows 8 computer. Here’s how the official description goes:

This version of Adobe Reader has been specially designed for the new Windows 8 Touch user interface to give you a great experience working with PDF documents on your Windows 8 Tablet.
