Adobe updated its Reader client for the iPhone and iPad today, bringing the popular PDF reading app to version 11.2.0. The update brings about a number of improvements, including a new iOS 7-inspired UI design and upgraded navigation.

While I’m sure some people aren’t going to like the new design, I think it looks way better than the previous UI. The black elements and bold text have been replaced by white spaces and thinner fonts, making it easier to browse and find things…

Here’s the change log for version 11.2:

– New user interface
– Recently viewed documents up front
– Improved single file edit
– Integrated Help system
– Improved text selection
– Better services integration
– Upgraded navigation 

First released in 2011, Adobe has turned its Reader app into a full-featured PDF reader with the ability to view several file types from any that supports the ‘Open in’ protocol. You can use it to import, export, convert, share and print PDF documents.

I didn’t use the previous version of Reader enough to speak to the other improvements in today’s update, but it certainly looks like it’s worth grabbing. If you want to check it out, you can find the latest version of Adobe Reader in the App Store for free.
