Adobe Reader XI is the official PDF reader. It’s integrated with most web browsers and lets you print, comment and share documents easily. It’s essential to open thousands of documents, forms and manuals.

All you need to read PDF files

The classic Adobe Reader tools have not changed. From the magnifying glass, to the editing tools, and the reading aloud features, they have added new updated annotation functions that simplify the tasks of highlighting text or adding notes.

Thanks to the Protected Mode and other security measures, it’s now much safer to fill in forms and open PDF documents with complex objects. The new Adobe Reader XI Protected Mode also includes features that safeguard your data.

With the Sharing option, you can send the document by e-mail via the Adobe SendNow service. Also, by integrating Adobe Reader with their Acrobat.com online services, you can take advantage of some interesting functions, although you’ll need an online account.

Easier to use

When compared with older versions, Adobe Reader XI stands out due to the simplicity of its interface, which only shows the essentials. To access all other functions, all you have to do is open the panels or menus.

Adobe Reader XI supports different reading modes, like full screen or normal. This means that you can use it even with a touch screen. Similarily, all the different features are very straightforward.

Adobe Reader XI has improved a great deal since version 9– it has become a PDF reader light enough to compete with other alternative readers.

On the other hand, it’s still a bit tedious to install, especially for old-fashioned PCs, and the integration with browsers is not as good as it could be. It’s sometimes better to resort to the already integrated readers.

An essential tool

Faster, more reliable, and simple, Adobe Reader XI is an essential tool if you need to open and print PDF documents frequently, and with the full-screen reading mode, you can enjoy PDFs even on smaller screens.
