    I have searched on various sites to see if anyone has a solution to my query. I have various Field Managers reporting to me and one of their responsibilities is getting me daily reports. We have a template in place to make it easy to just populate a few fields and zip it along to me. The company uses Android phones and tablets throughout the country but I'm the maverick who uses an iPhone (previously a Windows phone) and I'm on an island. It seems iOS hasn't gotten around to natively read fillable PDF forms. Open the attachment and it's a blank slate. Even my archaic webOS Touchpad handles this with aplomb but I'm not always able to have a tablet or PC with me.

    Is there any way to do this natively? Am I doing something wrong or is this an obscure limitation with iOS?

    Another option is PDFPro.
    I use my iPhone to fill out reports in Numbers. Then from within Numbers I choose send a copy as PDF, then choose email. The original file was an Excel file I converted with PDFPro.

    Adobe Acrobat Reader could handle those fillable fields with ease.
    I recommend this one.
