I am new to file viewer. I love it so far. It has a very simple interface. It also has advanced functions. Which has thrown a curve in learning. I'm slowly learning and enjoying it. They have documents that explain the different functions of the app. It's a great file manager no matter your skill level. I'm going to invest in the paid plan it's worth it.

I love this app. Simple, clean, easy to use. For seniors like myself, I pay for no ads, and hopefully this app stays around for a very long time. Only issue I have is sometimes this app states can't open file because it does not recognize the file type. Then I'm on a wild goose chase and just end up quitting the search. As a whole it's very easy to use. Nothing much has changed except for help. It has improved a ton and would like to shout "a nice job to the developers for responding" always.

Wow, a developer that actually acts upon feedback and provides updates and communicates! With the addition of support for XPS files (and ability to save them down as PDFs) changes the whole story for me... I reinstalled this and it worked well handling the files I needed read. THANK YOU! (Previous Review) 100s of file types sounds impressive, but does it read the file I need? no. doesn't read XPS files, yet shows up in search for "xps reader". uninstalling.
