  1. PDF does not open when firewall blocks internet connection

    When WiFi or Mobile Data is on, Acrobat Reader tries to connect to ec2*.compute.azonaws.com. My firewall blocks this connection (why would Acrobat reader need Internet to view a simple PDF?!). Then the loading screen hangs and the PDF does not open.

    If I turn off WiFi and Mobile data everything works... but it is very tedious to turn it off every time only to view a PDF!

    I'm using the app version 18.3.1.208062 on Android 8

  3. Fix "This page does not reflow" errors

    There is no clear difference between pages which cannot be reflowed and surrounding pages. Competing products have no such page-specific issue. This reading-mode bug makes it impossible to use the Android Reader for book-length PDFs.

    I'll attach a simple text-only PDF generated from public-domain HTML. In the current 17.5 version of the Android Reader, 12 of the first 20 pages do not reflow.

  11. Sort option is not there in files

    There should be a sort option while going through the various files mostly according to the date.. it becomes difficult to find a file if one doesn't know the name of the file which one wants to find.

  14. remove document cloud and login prompt

    I only use pdf's locally. I do not want and will not use document cloud. So, I do not want to EVER be prompted to login to adobe reader. Give me an option in settings or preferences to completely disable document cloud and the adobe login.

    I left photoshop when adobe switched to CC; if document cloud is necessary and continues to nag me with login prompts, I will remove adobe reader from every system I own and recommend the same to everyone I meet...

  15. Text to Speech

    On the app I am unable to find a text to speech function for PDF's. The scenario is - Open Adobe Scan > Scan a letter > Save as PDF > Open in Adobe Acrobat and I then require the PDF to be Read Out Loud. I'm working on a Samsung S7 Edge. Is there a way to make this happen?

    Many thanks

  19. Dictionary integration

    Please integrate a dictionary with the adobe acrobat reader. And if you guys think this will increase the package size then just integrate an online dictionary so that if we copy a word it'd give its meaning instantly accessing from your servers. I think you guys got what I'm trying to say engineering is your work.
