Adobe Reader 10.1 finally comes back to those in the US


Good news for all of you heroes out there who have endured the “1” staring at you from your Marketplace Tile: you can now finally hit that update button for Adobe Reader.

In the ongoing Windows Phone Store oddities of late, Adobe Reader came under scrutiny as many users were upgraded to version 10.1, followed by a second update that seemed to be a bug fix and then a third update.

Good news!

That third update though brought the app down to version 9.0 and it was extremely frustrating for many users. Adobe Reader had not had an update in nearly 2 years and 10.1 was a breath of fresh air in the app, fixing or adding many new features. To have it yanked from people’s devices in such a way was not fun at all.

We have reached out to Microsoft about these Store hiccups but so far have not heard back.

You can pick up Adobe 10.1 here in the Store. Thanks, Saburi, Matthew and Joe for the tip!

MadSci2 says:

The link and the US Marketplace are taking me to Version 9! :-S

tgr42 says:

Power your phone off and on and then it should work.

jfa1 says:

use the QR code  it worked fine for me

MadSci2 says:

I appreciate the suggestions, but soemthing is very wrong. The Marketplace, the QR code, MSoft's webpage, ALL just show vertion 9.
I think V10 was posted by mistake, and then replaced with v9 again.

MadSci2 says:

I was right.  Adobe Reader has been pulled from the Marketplace.  Search for it and there are no Apps found!

Sadly the windows phone version still doesn't have the annotation feature which the Andriod/IOS has. You still can't fill pdf forms.

ahuczek says:

Lol " finally "

What has it been a week? Lol

lippidp says:

After the first update I could not open a PDF from Outlook. I imagine that is why it was yanked.

ChanceW says:

Thank god! My OCD senses were killing me with that 1 on the live tile.

fanel says:

Not fixed here in Canada. I'm still getting version 9.

10.1 has bookmark-navigation but we can't add bookmarks in-situ, can we? That's a desperately needed feature
