Lori KassubaSeptember 23, 2012

  1. Using a program like the Citrix Receiver mobile app, tap to launch Acrobat XI (which is installed on the Citrix XenApp server) on the iPad.
  2. Open a virtual Windows desktop and tap to open Acrobat XI.
  3. When you open a PDF file, Acrobat XI detects that you are using a touch-enabled device, and prompts you with a pop-up at the bottom. Tap the prompt.
  4. The new Touch Mode capability spaces out the icons on the toolbar, panels, and increases the text size of menus.
  5. The Page Thumbnails can be used to navigate and can also be scrolled with a finger swipe.

Can it be used on an Android application?

Hi Cathy,

To do something like this you would need the Citrix Receiver App for Android and then Acrobat XI installed on a Citrix XenApp server.

Thanks,
Lori

Hi Mark,

We’re referring to using legitimate iPad apps like the Citrix Receiver for iPad when referring to this touch capability.
