Adobe's website is not only an online collaboration center, but also provides a way to convert files to PDF, meet live over the web, or store and share files.

Now some of that goodness has found its way into your iPhone. Adobe has released Mobile by scanR [Free, iTunes Link], which works with an existing account to give users a way to share and view documents. Users can also fax documents from the app, and iPhone 3GS owners can take photos of documents for addition to their account.

While the app is free, Mobile users should be aware that using the app comes with a price tag. While you can scan up to 5 pages or fax 2 pages for free, all additional scanning or faxes must be purchased separately through in-app purchase.

Many early reviews are stating that the app is rather slow and can be expensive once you begin creating or faxing your PDFs, so potential buyers should be aware of those facts. In addition, the app does not support the Web conferencing or online office applications that make the full so useful to groups. appears to be a fair first step towards integrating the iPhone and Acrobat's namesake service, but much more needs to be done before this app reaches its potential.
