Not for Kindle Fire! Kindle Fire already supports PDFs!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Adobe Acrobat DC - PDF Reader and more (App)
The Kindle Fire already supports PDFs natively (and much much faster rending time too!).
If you are trying to use PDF files larger than the 50mb cap that emailing documents to your Kindle has, then plug your Kindle Fire into your computer with the USB Cable.
All PDFs must be in the Documents folder.
This next part is important: The Kindle Fire cannot have PDFs within sub-folders inside of the Documents folder (like previous Kindles allowed).
The PDF files will be located in the Docs section of your Kindle Fire for easy & smoking fast viewing.
To zoom just touch two locations on the screen & spread your fingers out (in to zoom out).
This App is designed for non-PDF supporting Android devices, NOT Kindle Fire.

Well, yes and no. The Amazon way is definitely better for moving around in something several hundred pages long, but on the other hand it made a sad hash of a musical score that the Adobe program did impeccably.

Boy, I wish I had known this--the docs did not go into the doc folder, but into the Adobe app folder, and because I didn't know where they were going, they were downloaded several times, taking up unnecessary space on my Fire. Now, I don't know how to delete the extra copies, because there is no task button for that and the method for other downloads has no effect.

The Acrobat reader also supports PDF features, such as comments, that the Kindle does not. This is useful for some of the uses that I need to put PDFs to.

I've not been able to open anything with this App on my Kindle Fire. Not sure what I'm doing wrong or if it is just not an app to be used with the Fire.

For downloads & extra copies, you should plug your Kindle Fire to your computer & move the PDFs to the Documents folder manually. You can delete extra copies the same way.
It acts like a thumbdrive, all you have to do is unlock the screen on the Kindle then the device will connect to the PC.
An alternative is to download a 3rd party app which lets you manage your kindle files from your kindle.

My problem has been when a file "says" it needs Adobe to open and then when I click to open it the reply is to download Adobe, which of course I have. It's been frustrating.

Have you tried placing them into the Documents folder within the Kindle Fire, and going into the Docs menu (between Video & Apps)? I don't even use this App. I look in Docs instead of Apps.

What happened was, I was on a web site and wanted to view a document. To open the doc it said I needed Adoble, which I have and yet I could not open the doc and even when I clicked download it would send me to the download for Adobe. I don't think it works as it should. Thanks for your suggestions though.

Best work around would be to get an app which lets you manage kindle files. Then you can move the download into the Documents folder. That should fix it. As for downloading it, hold down the link until options appear. Holding down your finger seems to be the Kindle Fire equivalent of a right-click. Good luck.
