In Windows 8 Microsoft provides its own Metro-style application called Windows Reader for viewing Adobe's popular document format. Windows Reader presents a very simple full-screen experience, like other Metro-styled apps. However, if you need more functionalities or need to collorately work with other native applications on the same desktop, you would defintely need a native PDF reader. PDF Viewer for Windows 8 is such a reader that offers decent capabilities and performance as well as versatile functionalities as a native application and is extremetly useful for those that typically stick to the Windows 8 desktop experience.
