Adobe Reader Touch for Windows 8 updated with print functionality

In February, Adobe updated its PDF reader app for Windows 8, changing the name from Adobe Reader to Adobe Reader Touch in the process. This week, the app received a new update and it adds a feature that we think will please most every Windows 8 user.

The change note on the Windows Store page show that new version allows users to actually print PDF files from the Adobe Reader Touch app. This is something that really should have been available from the start, but it's nice that Adobe has finally gotten around to adding this fairly basic feature to the app.

In addition to the print feature, the update adds some keyboard shortcuts for those of you who don't want to deal with the touch screen UI. The keyboard shortcuts are for the Find, Open, Print, and Close functions.

The Adobe Reader Touch app is still one of the top 50 most downloaded free Windows 8 apps in the Windows Store, and we suspect this new feature will boost its popularity even more. Folks who prefer the traditional desktop UI should continue to use the free Adobe Reader software for their PDF reading and printing needs.
