Adobe has partnered up with Dropbox to enable users to edit PDF files among other documents stored in the cloud; and starting from Tuesday, users will be able to link their Adobe Reader and Acrobat DC desktop apps with Dropbox accounts.

Linking both accounts will help users to edit PDFs that have already been stored in Dropbox’s cloud without the hassles of searching for wanted files. While it is already possible for desktop users to access PDF files from their Dropbox folders, both Dropbox and Adobe will soon make it possible for mobile users to access their files much easily without the need to flip between various apps.
To this end, as soon as users access their PDF files via their Dropbox app on their iOS mobile devices, a little bubble will alert them about the better use of their work through Acrobat; and this feature happens to set Adobe above other competitors such as Smile Software’s PDFpen. But then some other users might find the bubble popping up a little annoying, since they never had it this way prior to the integration.
Although the iOS features will be launched in a few months, Adobe and Dropbox have planned to roll out an experience for Android users by earlier next year; and Dropbox’s web interface might also feature this suggestion capability.
Leveraging on Dropbox’s massive user base, Adobe will be able to reach larger audiences with its Document Cloud and set it on a better pedestal against competitors like Google and Microsoft. And as time goes on, Adobe might consider working with other cloud storage providers.

Adobe last month announced a team-up with Salesforce and Workday, and this is to integrate its Document Cloud e-signature services into their products. This will enable users to use digital signature tools to carry out secure e-signatures or even authenticate a signature through the use of a smartcard fortified with a secure chip – just as rival DocuSign and eSign are already doing.
