{acrobat} deals both with the Adobe Acrobat PDF reader and Acrobat Pro.

Adobe Acrobat is a commercial PDF viewer available for most platforms, including mobile ones, made by Adobe Systems. Adobe Acrobat also comes in two versions; a commercial version which allows viewing, creation, manipulation, printing and managing of PDF files; and a free version, called Adobe Reader, which has limited capabilities apart from viewing and printing.

Acrobat thus currently refers to the commercial version whereas it used to also include the Reader. In the LaTeX context, includes the Reader and concerns the PDF viewing and printing capability.
