  1. For search feature, add ability to search for exact text entered, e.g. I can search just for 'the' and it doesn't bring up 'there', etc

    Right now for adobe reader for android, the search feature is very limited, so if I type in the word 'the' it brings up all instances of these letters, even if they're within other words, like 'these', or 'there, or 'thesis', etc.

    It would be a great feature if you'd add the ability to search for exact matches, which is a feature of adobe acrobat, and maybe even reader on windows?

    Perhaps it could be fine via quotes, eg. "the" brings up just this word.

  3. Text to speech

    I am visually impaired need PDFs read aloud like what is available for Google. All tips online didn't work.
    I don't think it's appropriate to charge extra for accessibility options!?!?!

  8. Add app on AppGallery

    We all know new Huawei phones don't come with GMS, so there isn't a proper way to download the app. I suggest to add this app on AppGallery with HMS, so it would work on phones that don't come with GMS. In this way, we would have a proper PDF application on AppGallery.

    Please, this feature is a must.

  13. Option to highlight a word instantly i read lasttime in a document

    While reading a document in Adobe reader if I want to take a break or browse something else on my mobile, there must be an option to highlight the word instantly up to which I have read, which will reduce time to look where was the last word that I had read.
