Dropbox announced that its iOS integration with Adobe is live, enabling users to easily edit PDFs stored in Dropbox.

This was announced for desktop last month. It's part of a partnership the two companies made designed to make it easier for people to work with PDFs.

On the Dropbox blog, Sanjana Tandon writes:

With the latest versions of the Dropbox and Acrobat Reader iOS apps, you’ll be able to annotate and comment on PDFs stored in Dropbox, right from your iPhone or iPad. Just open a PDF from the Dropbox app and tap the ‘Edit’ icon, then edit or electronically sign the PDF in the Acrobat Reader app. All your changes will save back to Dropbox, so you and any collaborators will have the latest version.

And thanks to the desktop integration we launched last month, editing PDFs stored in Dropbox is just as easy when you’re at your computer. Just connect your Dropbox account in the Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader desktop apps, and you’ll be able to pull up any PDF in your Dropbox right from the Adobe app.

The functionality will come to Android sometime next year.
