Adobe Reader announced for Android, available now for select devices

Looks like Adobe keeps rolling out the news with their new BFF, Android. Adobe Reader for Android is available now in the Market and are only “officially supported” on certain devices including the Moto DROID, Moto Milestone, Nexus One. Adobe also lets us know that it has not been tested on other devices, but they imagine that it can work.

Some of the features that are included in Adobe Reader are multi-touch gesture support, double-tap zoom, flick-scrolling and panning, and something very interesting, reflow mode. “Reflow” will take large text-centric PDF documents and enlarge the text and basically “word-wrap” it to fit the screen. This can make PDF docs much easier to read on a smaller screens. As of now this is the first Android PDF reading app that supports this type of functionality as far as I know, and it seems like this feature could be extremely useful.

Adobe Reader for Android requires Android 2.1, at least a 500MGhz processor, 256MB RAM, and 4.3MB of available disk space, and a “currently supported device”. Give it a try and let us know what you think and also let us know if it works on more devices than the Moto DROID, Milestone, and Nexus One.
