Adobe Reader is the software which is to read and view pdf files, fill pdf forms, print pdf files, email pdfs

Adobe Acrobat is used to do everything which the Reader does and Which the Reader does not do. Acrobat is used to create pdfs, create forms, edit pdfs, modify them, print them and much more which the Reader cant do.
Check out to know more about both softwares.

On one hand, Adobe Reader is the free software which you can download from and use lifetime.
