About this app

"It's not big and it's not clever", it is in fact a tiny and efficient docx (word 2007/2010) file reader. Support is limited to basic tables, lists and text but if you want a tiny app that lets you open a docx from dropbox, the web, email attachments* or your local file system then this will get the job done.

No advertising. Not now, not ever.

I wrote this in my spare time and give it away for free. I cannot support this app any longer. If it doesn't work for you please simply uninstall it and use another app.

Known Issues:
*sometimes attachments / files can't be opened due to a permissions error

Doesn't support:
- passworded files
- images
- Bookmarking
- Search

Perfect. Very simple, takes almost no memory (why do so many other simple apps suck up huge amounts of space??) and does exactly what it says. Opened a .docx file with no issues - and I didn't have to install Word or some other gargantuan program that I neither need nor want on my phone. No bells and whistles, no ads. Thanks to the developer for creating this handy little jewel!

Basic Crash App. Can crash anytime tou want it to. Easy to crash hence easy to use. You can amaze your family and friends with this unique app, call it magic and make the app close as you open. It's all automatic. OR It's a mystrery box, made by secrete agencies only for the agents to open and get their messages. It won't start on normal phones but only by the phones built by those secret agencies only inside Area 51. The raid didn't happen else this secret would have been out in public.

It's great in that it is light and doesn't ask for loads of unnecessary permissions but I can only give it four stars because it doesn't open files or documents and just crashes when I try to use it
