Some of the supported features include copy-and-paste, search, zoom, bookmarks, links, and quick navigation tools, such as thumbnails and scrolling.

Welcome back

It is nice to see adobe reader back. It was much needed on WP7.5, as there were no other PDF options that were good options. On WP8, Microsoft decided to publish their own PDF reader, and it is not as bad as some folks try to make it out to be.

However, my opinion about the app is based purely on the fact that I've not had any issues reading PDFs. Sure, there some features that could be added, but when I compared the Adobe reader on my old WP7.5 to the native PDF reader on WP8, I had a hard time seeing how people were claiming Adobe reader on the old OS was better. Even when I compare the MS's PDF reader and Adobe's, I don't find much that makes it that much better, other than the fact that Adobe does load large files much quicker.
