Adobe Reader X for Windows (and Adobe Reader X for Android) have been released to the public announced Adobe, the California-based company that specializes in creating multimedia and creativity software products. On Monday Adobe announced the immediate availability of Adobe Acrobat X solutions. At the time Adobe said that Adobe Reader X would become available for download by the end of the month. I’m glad to see that it did not take Adobe long to roll out Adobe Reader X.

“Adobe Reader X is now available! Download Reader X for desktop at or access the mobile app on the Android Market via your Android device. With over one billion downloads, Adobe Reader continues its leadership as the global standard in PDF viewing and interaction,” announced Group Product Manager for Adobe Reader, Steve Gottwals.


Why would you want to get Adobe Reader X? Why because it will allow you to do the following:
- You will be able to view and interact with PDF files that contain drawings, email messages, spreadsheets, videos, and other content types.
- You will be able to make notes and share feedback with others using the Sticky Notes and Highlighter tools.
- To fit more content on the screen, you can select the reading mode or the two-up mode.
- The print, zoom, find and other keyboard shortcuts can be used within the browser.
- Adobe Protected Mode, a sandboxing technology based on Microsoft’s Practical Windows Sandboxing Technique, will provide extra security by running all operations required to display PDF files in a sandbox (a very restricted and confined environment).
- From within Adobe Reader X you will be able to directly access online services at

“Reader X for desktop enables an even greater level of interaction with the ability to share feedback through the use of Sticky Notes and Highlighter tools, as well as view a larger variety of content types including drawings, email messages, spreadsheets, videos, and other multimedia elements. You can also take advantage of the added security of Protected Mode in Reader X, which helps ensure safer viewing of PDF files,” commented Steve Gottwals.

Adobe’s warning from earlier this weeks stands: watch out for scam attempts that use Adobe’s name. If you get an unsolicited email that claims to offer Adobe Acrobat X solutions, delete it; do not click any link(s) included in the email. If you get an email that asks you to pay for Adobe Reader X, or an email that claims to have Adobe Reader X attached, chances are that email is a scam so delete it. Adobe Reader X is offered free of charge, it doesn’t cost a thing.
