About this app

(NOTE *** Android 11 is now enabled. When first installed on Android 11, you will be prompted for "All Files Access". Just click FindWiz in the list and turn on the switch to give it permission to read all files.)

This short video explains the steps to give "All Files Access" to FindWiz during the Installation:


FindWiz "All Files Access" Tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-yVuxBBegs

FindWiz is a Text Search program for commonly used MS Office, Open Office and other file formats.

Formats it can read are TXT, DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX, RTF, HTML, ODT, ODS, PDF, EPUB, MOBI.

Wild card searches are supported. The program allows:

- Selecting file types to search
- Selecting which folder to start the search from
- Case sensitive option, and other options used by the search logic.

An ad-hoc search function can be performed for a particular file in which the original hit is found.

Running totals are displayed during the search.

_______________________________

All features are now FREE. The developer asks that you consider the ad-free version ($1.98 USD) to show your appreciation, if you think that this is the best program of it's kind.

_______________________________

Suggestion: If you wish to search files stored on a cloud drive with FindWiz, you can make a copy to one of the drives on your phone, which also gives you an off-line backup.

Please exit and restart the app after purchasing.

Comprehensive user guides are included in the app for each screen.

Works! Takes about 2 minutes to search within every document on my phone. Works in the background and announces when it's done so no need to sit waiting for it. UI could be smoother but that doesn't matter, that's just cosmetic. Very handy, thank you. ... I'd suggest a note or tooltip for inexperienced users, explaining that the oddly-named drive is their removable SD card - not everyone knows what a "drive" is ;)

I shared the error video.....can you check ? Hope it helps you to remove bug. Edit 18 Oct : Developer, it is not working. Folder permission already given to app. Double check at your end.There is bug. Not sure if you have testing team seperately. Edit 27sep : After your reply tried again , inspite of giving permission to read/write to storage ,still this app not working and pop message appears about permission. Hope this helps you. Not working....on int click folder selection it crashes.

Sanjay, it was not compatible with Android 11 when you tried it. It is now, so please give it another shot. There is now a link in "About this App" to a short video on giving ALL FILES ACCESS, which is more than one step. Watch the video. If you still need help, contact me at: support@ardeeapps.com

This app still needs a lot of work. The TEXT in BOXES are not always in proportional. The searches take too long with multiple files. You should consider creating a once off INDEX that is stored, so that future searches will occur much faster. For INDEXING examples see DocsSeach App by Li Jane.

Do a test of something hard to find in both programs, Elijah, and compare. That's what counts.
