TOP 10 Best Pdf Readers and Editors for Android and iOS Mobiles

by Sonia Tom

PDF readers have always been a pretty tricky niche. Either they are used in work environments to create and fill out forms, or we use them to read ebooks on the tablet. In any of the 2 cases, many times this type of apps ends up giving more problems than anything else. Today, we review the best PDF readers (and editors) for Android and iOS mobiles available on Google Play and App Store, plus a few eBook readers in EPUB format.

The 10 Best Pdf Readers and Editors for Android and iOS Mobiles

In the following list, we include the best PDF readers: light, ad-free, fast and free readers. Not everyone meets all these conditions – you know, quality, as in almost everything, is paid at a good price – but without a doubt, they are the best we can find to read scanned documents, books, notes, and more on mobile devices and tablets.

Adobe Acrobat Reader

Without a doubt, the Acrobat Reader by Adobe is the best-known PDF reader, both on Android –more than 100 million downloads- and on desktops. Among its features, we find the possibility of taking notes in PDFs, filling out forms, and adding our signature.

It also has support for Dropbox and Adobe Document Cloud. The paid subscription offers additional functions, such as the possibility of exporting documents to many other formats.

Foxit Mobile PDF

Foxit Mobile PDF is an excellent PDF reader and one of the best PDF readers that allows us to perform a lot of actions. We can open normal or password-protected documents, and it offers support for adding bookmarks. We also have annotations, with which we can highlight and underline texts.

Although it is an excellent reader for tablets, it adapts quite well to small mobile screens, thanks to personalized text readjustment and redistribution. It also has a premium version that offers additional functions, such as the possibility of editing text and images in any PDF document.

Google PDF viewer

Speaking of lightweight, free readers, we can’t overlook Google’s PDF viewer. Like the rest of the company’s office applications, it is integrated with Google Drive, as are Google Docs, Spreadsheets, and Presentations.

It is a very basic reader, but with some pretty interesting features. We can search for words or phrases within the document, copy text, and send it to print (if necessary). As we say, it has no advertising and is totally free, like almost all Google office applications.

Gaaiho PDF Reader

Although the Gaaiho PDF reader is not as popular as that of Adobe, Foxit, or Xodo, the truth is that we are dealing with a developer with more than 20 years of experience developing tools for PDF. Its main virtue is its ability to load, manage, and view documents in an agile, clear, and really fast way.

We can also add comments or edit bookmarks at high speed, marking the page that interests us to return later. Also included are basic annotation tools such as underlining text or freehand drawing, arrows, geometric figures, etc.

Gaaiho also allows access to documents stored in the cloud, although for now it only works with Dropbox. However, it does offer support for configuring WebDAV servers (a function not widely used, but more than one may be interested in).

Google Play Books

Google Play Books is Google’s answer to Amazon’s Kindle. We can buy a book in the Play Store and then read it wherever we want. The interesting part is that it’s free, and we can add our own EPUB and PDF books to the app’s library and read them whenever we want, just like any other book we’d bought in the store. Compatible with audiobooks, it is also capable of reading the text aloud in numerous languages.
