    Hello:

    I am currently an iPhone 4 user. Since the iPhone 4 is too small to read PDFs, I mainly use my iPad as my e-reader. But lately I have been considering a Windows Phone, in particular a Lumia 920. How does PDF organizing, editing, and reading compare? Are there good apps for highlighting and note taking?

    I understand 4 1/2 inches still isn't ideal for reading but it's significantly larger than my iPhone's screen. Any advice/help would be great. Thanks.

    Well you can read them but you can't send them and at least while I was still using my 920 as my main phone, you couldn't edit them. Maybe that has changed, I don't know

    I don't do much reading but I have PDFs that I've downloaded from websites, like schedules or airline itineraries and they open up ok. I have option to share as well.

    I don't see anything for editing, there's a bookmarks option I don't know does what, some viewing options but that's about it.

    You can read them and that's about it. No editing, no highlighting, no note-taking. Hopefully there'll be better pdf reader apps in the future. Adobe hasn't even released theirs for WP8 yet.

    I use PDF's to look up answers to the questions I am doing for school. Way more convenient than pulling out my laptop. Sharing is a bit of a pain as you have to upload it to skydrive first.

    I've contacted Adobe Inc. via Feature Request form and Adobe Community regarding Adobe Reader for high-resolution WP8 devices. Next step would be requesting all their Touch Apps for WP ... Lets be strong, patient and relentless!

    No please, not Adobe. There are more than adequate PDF readers on the market, one from our very own forum users.
