Adobe and Dropbox announced an integration of their applications that should bring greater flexibility to the mobile working world.
The partnership will make it possible for users of Adobe Acrobat DC and Adobe Acrobat reader to access and take common actions on PDF files stored in Dropbox. Dropbox users can now open, edit and save changes to PDF documents in the Adobe apps from the Dropbox website, iOS or Android apps.
The integration is available for Dropbox Basic, Pro and Dropbox for Business accounts. Users will simply need to add their Dropbox account information within Acrobat DC or Acrobat Reader on desktop - iOS and Android (as well as Web) integration is expected in the coming months.
“The requirements of our customers have constantly evolved over time; today, mobile has become the rule and people expect to complete work quickly and simply wherever and whenever they need,” said Kevin M. Lynch, senior vice president and general manager of Adobe Document Cloud at Adobe. "Our work with Dropbox, as our first file sync and share partner, will help Adobe Document Cloud customers and people around the world be more productive with the documents at the center of their daily lives.”
