Microsoft is said to be preparing a new Reader app for its Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows RT users, especially after Barnes & Noble and Microsoft have scale back their partnership. But until and if that happens, let’s have a look at what’s new in the official built-in Reader app.

Microsoft’s Reader application is built it when you install Windows 8 or 8.1, so unless you have checked to install updates for yourself and not automatic, then you don’t even know what has been changed with the app. Another handy app to manage PDF files is, obviously, Adobe Reader Touch, but you can also have a look at Drawboard PDF, as well. The Microsoft Reader app might not come with a lot of features, but at least you know it can work on Windows RT, as well.

According to the official changelog of the app, the latest version has been updated to improve reliability and to address data loss issues, problems which were affecting quite a lot of users, judging by the feedback they have left on the Windows Store. But the app is now more reliable and much faster, as well. Of course, it looks just as great on desktop Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 device and on Windows 8 touch and Windows RT devices.

By using the app, you can open PDF, XPS, and TIFF files, view documents, search for words or phrases, take notes, fill in forms, as well as print or share files. The app comes built-in on your system but you can follow the link from below to get more details about it.
