Adobe Reader for Android Hits 1 Million Downloads

Today’s post is dedicated to our Adobe Reader for Android users who have been instrumental in building some great momentum since we launched the product just two months ago.

Just this week, Adobe Reader for Android reached the 1 million download mark in the Android Market. Also in that time period, Adobe Reader has received an average of four stars from over 4,000 users who have rated it to date. eWeek recently picked Adobe Reader as one of the Top 10 Apps Motorola Droid X owners should acquire at launch.

These milestones are just the beginning of an exciting journey of enabling users the ability to view PDF files on Android mobile devices. Based on user feedback, we released an update to Adobe Reader for Android earlier this month with performance enhancements and the ability to open PDF files from local storage on Android mobile devices. We look forward to further enhancing the product and providing you with a great user experience for viewing and working on PDF documents on mobile devices.

Let us know what you think about Adobe Reader for Android. Provide your feedback on the product either via comments on this blog or through the Adobe Reader user forums:

If you haven’t downloaded and used Adobe Reader for Android yet, isn’t it time you joined the million other users who have?

Thank You!

Adobe Reader Protected Mode

Adobe Reader is relied upon by hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide. We understand that with such wide usage comes responsibility, and protecting our end-users is a top priority. Over the last year, Adobe has publicly discussed a number of product security initiatives around Adobe Reader—starting with the May 2009 blog post by Brad Arkin, Adobe’s senior director of product security and privacy.

Today, Adobe is announcing the next major step in our Adobe Reader product security initiative—the development of Adobe Reader Protected Mode (in the technical community referred to as “sandboxing”). For additional details on this announcement, see today’s Adobe Security Software Engineering Team (ASSET) blog post by Brad Arkin.
