Functional It is useful because I am a die-hard WordPerfect user, and I am glad to be able to view and copy text. Even so, it only views one file type (.wpd) and doesn't allow editing. It is overpriced for such limited functionality. It really converts the WPD file to HTML. It would be more useful if it converted it to PDF and even more useful if it allowed editing of the WPD file.

WordPerfect diehard BUT I don't only like to view WP documents I need to work on them. What good is just viewing? I can convert to PDF and view! The PDF converts better and usually looks better. Must use a different program to work in android. Then try to make work with WP in windows. What a waist of time and energy. In Windows I still rate WP far above . But I'm sure getting tired ova the extra work with with the lack of compatibility with Android.
Search function not working any more I just replaced Samsung S4 with Samsung S7 Edge phone. I reinstalled WP Viewer, but now when I do word search in a WordPerfect doc, search function not working like it used to on my S4. As I type in each letter and a search is going on throughout the document for the word typed so far, the place in the document where the word 1st appears momentarily flashes for a second, but then the view returns to the 1st page. When I use up/down arrows to go to next/prior word, it stays on 1st page. Any fix for this?
I purchased the WordPerfect Viewer with the idea that I should at least be able to share the document with a printer, thus print a hard copy of a WordPerfect document. This was not possible. My headers and footers did not show in the viewer either. I knew the app was limited. I didn't realize it was that limited. I would call this app useless for me and will remove it.
I am a WordPerfect user since 5.1 and have X7 at home and in the office, so this is a "must-have" app. However, at $3.99, it is far more expensive than most comparable apps. It has minimal features. It is only a viewer (actually converts wpd files to html so it doesn't edit natively) and cannot even open password-protected files. You must use a third-party app to access your documents, there is no link to cloud apps like DropBox, OneDrive, SugarSync, etc. I haven't had it long enough to test its reliability. Buy it only if you must but realize its limits.
Finally ... STILL WAITING! I have been looking for a wpd viewer since I got my Droid phone six months, ago. It is great not to go through hoops to open a wpd document. I would love to see some editing/writing capabilities added , but am happy for to have a viewer ... Update: I purchased this 3 years ago & had expected the addition of editing abilities. I now have a tablet with a blue tooth keyboard. I want to be able to start work on my desktop and continue working on my tablet or vice versa without converting and reformating or switching to Word on my PC. Come on Corel, join the times and give us dwindling diehards a full WP experience. Until that time I'm reducing my 4* review to a 2*.
