    Adobe has released a PDF reader for iOS that is compatible with password locked PDF's and supports files secured by the company's Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management, a DRM scheme that is Adobe offers to enterprise clients. Our sister site AppShopper has more on Adobe Reader:
    Adobe has a number of apps available on the App Store, including Photoshop companion apps Eazel, Nav, and Lava on the iPad, and Photoshop Elements 9 Editor on the Mac App Store.

    Adobe Reader is a free download for iPhone and iPad from the App Store. [Direct link]

    Anyone know if this is the same DRM scheme they use in their Digital Editions program? I have a few books (certification guides) that are DRM'ed that I'd like to read on my iPad.

    Try the Bluefire Reader iPad app – it'll read DRM-locked Digital Editions books (you have to authorise the app with the name/password that Digital Editions uses, it doesn't break DRM).

    I would like to see the following in future updates:
    • Add annotations, drawings
    • Filling out forms, signing document, and save
    • Organize documents into folders and/or add tags

    Yup, that opens them, thanks!

    I'd like the annotations as well as organizing documents options. As all of the books I have with in the Digital Editions format are technical manuals/certification guides, i'd like to highlight sections, make notes in the margins, etc. I can get the books in physical form, but some of them are over 1,000 pages long and several inches thick so they'd take up a bunch of physical space.

    OMG, finally, a pdf app that's actually usable on iPhone because of proper continuous view...
    I am amazed how we couldn't get that primitive feature for years, which rendered all the other pdf readers basically worthless.

    With all due respect, it's PDFs, not PDF's. Apostrophes should never be used for plurals. :)

    Perhaps they were addressing the PDF's Algorithms? :apple:

    This is not the New York Times, nobody cares about proper punctuation.

    Not true. It's acceptable to use apostrophes with abbreviations according to some style guides (eg. The NYT Manual of Style and Usage).

    looks like a decent reader

    hopefully Adobe continues to add features, like filling out forms or signing a document

    I'm with you on this. It drives me crazy to see an apostrophe used so often in the wrong manner.

    Sadly this is true as even the style guides disagree on this one. However, The Associated Press Stylebook is the more commonly used format, at least for punctuations, so there is hope.

    "Let’s eat grandma!" vs "Let’s eat, grandma!"
