  • ★★★★★ Sep 18, 2020 Well done. Nice and simple with all of the necessity and function anyone could need. Direct and elegant in a way the others try but fail to reach. — Adam G.
  • ★★★★★ Sep 14, 2020 The best app in the world, it really opens all files, (at least the ones I have been able to try and there are many). I was tired of having a different app to open each file of different types. Now I open all files with this app directly. Highly recommended! — Matt
  • ★★★★★ Sep 4, 2020 Was having a problem reading a pdf file I'd downloaded. Tried both my readers I use. They wouldn't open the file and would freeze for 30 seconds or so trying. They would say the file was corrupt or unable to find pdf trailer. I had a girlfriend email me the file and then tried to view it as an html file and also opening it from within Gmail. Still didn't work. Tried renaming it, tried opening as other file types. Still nothing. Downloaded this, it opened in 4 seconds. I'm pleased. — Mr Horsepower
  • ★★★★★ Sep 4, 2020 Love this app...keeps everything neat an clear, easy to use. — MommaJ
