Earlier this year, we shipped the latest Adobe Acrobat DC integrations with Box and Microsoft OneDrive, making it easier to work with PDFs wherever they’re stored. Now organizations and individuals can open and edit PDF files from within Acrobat software, and automatically save work back to the cloud service of their choice.

Today, we’re taking this integration to the next level with an update to our iOS Adobe Acrobat Reader mobile app. By leveraging the iOS Document Picker, anyone can now take advantage of more storage options via iPhone and iPad. Select, open, and save PDFs in iCloud Drive and other document storage providers like Box, Microsoft OneDrive, and Google Drive – in addition to our native integration with Dropbox – from Acrobat Reader on your iOS device.

Here’s how to get started:

Adding a storage provider:

  1. Install a cloud storage app such as Box on your device.
  2. In Acrobat Reader mobile, tap the Location Chooser.
  3. Tap More Locations…
  4. You should see the installed app listed. The cloud storage app(s) installed on device should appear in window.


Managing storage providers:

From the Location Chooser, tap More Locations… then More to manage app settings. From here you can:

  1. Toggle access to file providers on and off.
  2. Rearrange the order by long pressing the three-lined icon and dragging the line to a new location.
  3. View whether an app is newly installed. A blue dot indicates that a new app has been installed and that you can enable it.


We hope you enjoy connecting to your favorite cloud storage locations to work smarter, faster, and access PDFs from wherever life takes you. Stay tuned for more enhancements coming your way inside Acrobat Reader mobile.
