Adobe Reader for iOS and Android & Rights Management



This week's release of Reader for iOS and Android devices incorporates support for accessing files secured by Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management.

As you are probably familiar, LiveCycle Rights Management protects sensitive documents by encrypting them with industry-standard AES encryption and enabling central management of their access permissions. Protections persist even when documents are accidentally distributed via email, the cloud, or saved on a lost mobile device.

Many of the core capabilities that you are used to on the desktop versions of Acrobat and Reader are now supported when you are on the go on your tablet or mobile phone. We intend to incorporate additional functionality in future releases of these mobile devices and look forward to your feedback.

We've had several questions thus far about how this works. More information about the product, as well as a link to an FAQ can be found at:http://blogs.adobe.com/security/2011/10/just-released-adobe-reader-10- 1-for-ios-and-android.html

Hello Jonathan,

is there an way to trigger iOS download to immediately open using "Adobe Reader"

instead of using the default Previewer (showing an plain empty white window) and then re-open it using "Open with" ?

Is there an MIME-Type to indicate IRM-protected PDF-files?




We're looking into an alternate approach for the future, but the "Open With..." is the current solution.
