Adobe Reader 10.1 finally comes back to those in the US

Adobe

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!

Awesome! Thanks for the news!
 
Edit: I notice a change in version number from the previous version 10.
Old 10.x: Version 10.1.0, Build 20120818
New 10.x: Version 10.1.1, Build 20120919
(Info from about page in app)

I was just coming on here to tip them to that too. Fhotoroom and 4th and Mayor have updates this morning as well.

Im getting invald file path when i try to open up a pdf. Ive tried uninstalling the app and doesnt work. Anyone know whats uppp?

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.

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.

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