Adobe Acrobat Reader for PDF

Adobe Acrobat Reader - The helpful tool for reading PDF files.

Documents can be saved in many different formats. A common file format is the so-called PDF. The abbreviation stands for "Portable Document Format" and was introduced by the Adobe company back in 1993 to create its own format standard in comparison to Microsoft's DOCs.

The PDF files should be readable independently of an operating system or the software of large developers. For this purpose Adobe developed its own application called Acrobat Reader. With the Reader you have the possibility to view PDF files or create them. You can also convert other document formats like DOC files or TXT files to PDFs. This has the advantage that the documents can also be accessed on other operating systems, as long as they are equipped with Acrobat Reader.

Compared to other document files, PDFs are read-only. They cannot be changed in their content, structure or layout. That's why many companies prefer to use this type of file to post and send important documents online, such as contracts, manuals, and the like. With Acrobat Reader, however, users can specify exactly which areas of a PDF document may be edited. This is especially useful when end users need to enter their own data to sign a contract, or when they need to enter a signature. With other programs such as Word, such protection is only possible in a roundabout way, so using PDF files is much faster and easier.

An overview of the function of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

The main function of Adobe Acrobat Reader is to open and display PDF files. The program offers the possibility to set bookmarks for longer documents, so that you don't have to start from the beginning again and again. You can also jump directly to a desired page number or search a document for certain keywords.

Another important feature is the conversion of other file types into PDF files. This works for example with text files like TXT, but can also be done with images in JPEG Power Point presentations. Among other things, this has the advantage that you compress the file size significantly. Especially if you want to combine several different documents into a single text, the files can become very large. This makes it difficult to send them online as an attachment to an e-mail. If, on the other hand, you convert them into a single PDF, the PDF becomes much more compact and can be sent easily.

But Acrobat Reader doesn't just offer the option of converting documents to PDFs. The other way is also possible. If you want to convert a PDF back into a DOC file or into a TXT file to edit it, you can do this step with the Reader as well. In this way, you can turn the original PDF files into new documents that you can modify and adapt, for example, if you want to update content, or if you want to delete certain passages completely.

Acrobat Reader also has an online connection and is compatible with many browsers. If you find a PDF file on the Internet and want to view it, you don't have to open Reader manually. Just click on the PDF file to launch the online version of Reader. If you want to switch from the reading mode afterwards, just click on the corresponding button in the PDF window and you will get to the normal user interface of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Is Adobe Acrobat Reader useful?

PDF files are very common on the Internet. Accordingly, you will always have to rely on a program with which you can read the files. There are now alternatives from other manufacturers, but Acrobat Reader is a simple solution. It takes up little space and is relatively easy to use. The only annoyance is that the documents are sometimes heavily modified in their formations, so that you often have to manually rework them. Nevertheless, it is recommended to use Acrobat Reader, especially if you use a computer or laptop that is a bit less powerful.

Tutorial installation / de-installation on iOS

This is how easy it is to install and uninstall / delete iOS apps (applies to iPhone and other iOS devices):

The installation of apps is basically possible on iOS via the App Store. The App Store contains both free and paid apps that can be installed on the iPad, iPod or iPhone. The prerequisite for use is an Apple ID, which can also be created free of charge (this ID is also required for free apps).

1. In the AppStore, the user selects the appropriate app using the search or categories. To the right of the app icon there is a "load" button that is pressed.

2. In the next step, the user must log in with the Apple ID. If the ID has already been used for an app, all you have to do is enter the password - alternatively, Touch ID or Face ID can be used for new devices.

3. After entering the password or after authentication, the app is finally loaded and automatically installed. Entering the password is also necessary for free apps.

4. The app is loaded at the next free space on the home screen and can be opened there - alternatively, the "Load" button becomes the "Open app" button so that the app can be opened directly from the AppStore.

Uninstall apps in iOS

Deleting apps and programs on iOS is very easy and can be done directly from the home screen.
1. In the first step, the user looks for the app that needs to be deleted and presses the app icon with one finger for a long time.

2. The mode opens in which the home screen can be edited. An "X" appears at the top left of every app. Clicking on the "X" opens another dialog that asks you to confirm the deletion.

3. "Delete app" is selected here. Some apps save user data (e.g. scores) - therefore iOS can ask the user for some apps whether the app data should also be removed. If the app is reinstalled in the future, stored information can easily be reused.
