  • ★★★★★ Jan 13, 2021 I think File Viewer for Android is excellent. I can find what I need and in short order. Thank you. — Gerald W.
  • ★★★★★ Jan 12, 2021 File Viewer for Android didn't support my email app (Nine) and a few older document types. I contacted them with the issue and they soon after issued an update that resolved all of my issues and communicated with me via email to advise me of the same. Great customer service and now a great app! — David R.
  • ★★★★★ Jan 11, 2021 Best app I've had to open attachments on my android tablet. — David L.
