Adobe Reader for Android now available

The app is now available for free in the Android Market.

Don't get too excited; this isn't Adobe DE for Android. (Can you tell that I want Epub support?) This is only the PDF reader, and it has some fairly steep requirements: Android 2.1+ and a 550 MHz CPU.

Perhaps I'm being too harsh in using the word only, but I was hoping that Adobe would create a Adobe DE for Android by porting Adobe Reader Mobile. Oh, well. Here's what Adobe had to say about the app:

Adobe Reader for Android offers multi-touch gestures, like pinch-and-zoom, as well as double-tap-zoom, flick-scrolling and panning. We've also added a "reflow" mode, which will take text-heavy documents with wide margins, and automatically wrap the content for easy viewing on smaller screens.

There's also a demo video here.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
