It has been a long time since Microsoft’s PDF Reader for Windows Phone has seen an update. The last update we covered took place nearly a year ago. Today we’re looking at a new update for PDF Reader that should make a handful of you happy. Let’s check it out.
We’re not everyday users of Microsoft’s PDF Reader for Windows Phone 8 but we know many of you are, hence this post. Just a day ago, version 1.1.4784.14585 went live in the Store with some important new features, including opening password-protected files, which is pretty huge.
Today a slight revision has gone with version 1.1.4785.5817 rolling out to devices.
Joe Belfiore, manager of all things Windows Phone, has announced on Twitter that a new version of PDF Reader is available for Windows Phone 8 owners. The app now supports password protected documents, as well as those set as 'read-only'. Released back in November, it's good to see Microsoft further developing the official PDF app for the platform.
PDF Reader is a documentation viewer that can open and display PDF files. As well as being able to access said formats on Windows Phone, the app enables users to bookmark pages, manipulate zoom levels, search content, and resume viewing from last saved point. It's a fully featured PDF viewer.
