Why doesn't Adobe doesn't fully support Forms in IOS or Android

I find it amazing that Adobe doesn't fully support the Javascript and signature features of Forms in IOS and Android. In the current world of paperless working, Adobe Forms are the perfect solution to allow completion of forms on mobile devices. However the Adobe mobile readers don't support all the excellent functionality that can be built into forms. To successfully use forms on IOS we are forced to use PDF Expert which has become exorbitantly expensive these days. Surely there is a market for a reasonably priced Adobe premium IOS and android product to allow users to complete forms with full Javascript and signature fields support similar to PDF Expert.

 

Can someone from Adobe advise why they are do not provide a mobile product with full Forms support?

Also why are  they forcing customers to use alternative products for mobile form completion?

I fully agree. Adobe truly dropped the ball with this one.

If you want to keep PDF forms as a viable solution in the current environment they have to work on mobile devices.

And the only thing that's worse than something that doesn't work at all is something that only partially works.

Either support the full set of JS commands, or don't support it at all, but supporting some parts of it and not others is a nightmare for developers (and users), especially if it's not well-documented.
