After releasing the first version of the app, Adobe has finally updated its Reader app for Windows Phone 7.5 devices. And its a significant update that fixes most of the issues we faces so far.
Updated File browser
We have added a Panoramic File browser. You can easily list your recently viewed PDF files as well as see a complete list of all PDF files available in Adobe Reader.
Search, Select and Copy Text
You can now search for words and phrases in a document. In addition, you can select text and copy it to paste into other applications.
Navigate using Scrubber and Bookmarks
We have added ability to navigate using Bookmarks in a PDF document. If there are bookmarks available, you will see an icon on lower right hand corner of the document. Clicking that icon will display the bookmarks in this document. Tapping on a bookmark will bring you to the right location in the document.
You can also navigate to any page quickly using the Page Scrubber at the bottom of the display. Just tap and drag the Scrubber, and youâ€™ll be shown thumbnails of the pages, so you can identify and go directly to the page you are looking for.
Open password protected files and Portfolios
We have addressed one of the most common requests by adding the ability to open password protected documents.We have also added support for PDF portfolios by showing you a listing of all of the contents in the portfolio, and letting you tap to open and view any of the enclosed documents.
In addition, we have made significant performance improvements throughout the application, so your reading experience should be much improved.
