Adobe Reader 7 is a free software that lets you view, print, and search PDF files on a variety of devices and operating systems with faster launch time and real-time zooming and panning.
You can use Adobe Reader to read, interact with, and print Portable Document Format (PDF) files generated by such applications as the Adobe Acrobat family of products, Adobe Photoshop Album, and more.
Acrobat Reader also lets you fill in and submit PDF forms online. And when enabled by Acrobat Professional authors, you can now leverage robust commenting tools and actively participate in document reviews.
