trying to download a version of adobe reader for iOS 5.1.1 where can I find an older version of this?
The app store only gives the latest version.
iOS apps can only come from the app store. There is no other way to get an app.
The app store won't allow me to download an earlier version of acrobat and
the iPad is 1st generation so it can't update to the latest ios.
probably you will have to use the iOS PDF viewer
Would you please take look at the following forum threads to see if it works for you?
The same steps described in the forum threads should work for the first generation of iPad running iOS 5.1.1.
Please let us know if it works for you. Thank you.
