Adobe Reader Touch is the Windows 8 app version of the omnipresent Adobe Reader software. Download it to be able to open and view PDF files with no problems. Now, a new update brings fixes to some annoying bugs.
We have just finished telling you that the official Adobe Photoshop Express app for Windows 8.1 has been updated with some important bug fixes, and I’ve just noticed that the Adobe Reader Touch has also received an improvement. Mostly, it has to do with stability and performance.
Adobe Reader is the free, trusted leader for reliably viewing and interacting with PDF documents across platforms and devices. Adobe Reader Touch 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. Adobe Reader Touch works with a keyboard and mouse, but desktop users with keyboard and mouse may prefer to install and use Adobe Reader XI.
The release note only points to “bug fixes”, but I’ve went through reviews and compared the app myself with the previous version and what I’ve noticed is that opening a PDF file now doesn’t take as long as before. The app retains the old features, and you can open PDF documents, password-protected PDFs, annotations, drawing markups; view and add notes; highlight, strikeout, and underline text and many others.
