Adobe rebranded its creative software back in 2012, and now, it's changing the way it handles forms and documents. The company just announced Document Cloud: "a modern way" to tackle those files in your home, office and on the go. Combining key features from several apps, Document Cloud (DC) includes the redesigned Acrobat DC for tweaking PDFs. What's more, its handy scanning feature will allow you to snap a picture and convert it to an editable PDF, where you can make changes to both the text and any images. Adobe's EchoSign tools are baked in too, so filling out and adding your signature to forms is an easy task on either the desktop or a mobile device. Speaking of mobile devices, new apps, like Acrobat Mobile and Fill & Sign, wrangle all of those files on phones and tablets. The pair ensures that you can resume editing right from where you left off, and that signing a permission slip in a pinch is never too much to ask.

There are also document tracking features that allow users to manage the files they pass along to keep tabs on when they're viewed. As you might expect, there's an option for businesses to opt in, enabling entire offices to streamline any number of paper trails. In terms of pricing, Creative Cloud subscribers can expect access to the Document Cloud as part of their existing plan. Marketing Cloud customers should look forward to DC playing nice with that service too (mostly centered around document handling), and e-sign tools work with Experience Manger to complete forms on web and mobile sites. If you're after a standalone option, it'll cost $15 a month, with current Acrobat subscribers getting first crack when it arrives in the next four weeks. When it does, apps for iOS, Android, Windows and Mac will lend a hand with that stack of paper on your desk.
