I downloaded the free version of "Documents to go". It allows viewing of Word & Excel documents. Editing is not allowed for the free version. $24 gets the complete pkg.
I have 2 concerns - One, not sure if I'll keep this phone and not exchange it. I've already exchanged 2 times for defects. Hope this one's a keeper, but I'm scared due to 2 exchanges. 2nd concern is I'd like the most cost affective software.
I need a good pdf viewer, on the market there are two (> 4 stars) cheap options (AFAIK)BeamReader (1.99)RepliGo (1.99). I only find comparison between Beamreader and docs2go(9.99) and many of you point that d2g can do more that beamreader, but I don't need to read office files (I do use open office and D2g doesn't seem to be able to read pdf). I didn't find a direct comparison between the first two options so which is better Beamreader or Repligo and why?
I'm a writer and I tend to write in the .rtf (Rich Text File) format. I have Dropbox and I'd like to be able to pull up my .rtf files on the phone from Dropbox to go over them. The trouble is, I can't find a good .rtf editor or viewer program to do so. I don't really need the editing function, just a viewer will do. I have Astro as well. Phone is an Evo with Sprint.

How can i launch the builtin Android image viewer to view this file? Currently i'm doing:
And it keeps churning out:

I copied a PDF to the 'My Documents' folder of my 8gig memory card, opened up PDF Viewer and it responded 'No files were found on your phone'. So this begs the question, how do I load up a bunch of PDF's so I can view them on the phone?
I want to be able to open a pdf file in my app using the android's built in pdf viewer app, but i dont know how to start other apps. I'm sure i have to call start activity, i just dont know how to identify the app im opening and how to pass the file to that specific app.I just learned that the pdf viewer i have on my phone is actually made by HTC and that Adobe just barely released their android pdf viewer (which is great). So the new question is this: how do i verify that the user has installed adobe's viewer, and then how do i open the file in that app from my app?
Recently my phone only shows my pictures in low resolution until I zoom in a tiny bit, then suddenly it sharpens into the full quality image. Is it suddenly displaying low res thumbnails for my images until I try looking at them? It never did this before, and it's not a 2.2 change as it started doing it a day or two before I updated it.
When I get my Incredible, I have an urgent need for a PDF reader that actually works well. It does not have to be free. My file size ranges up to 11mb. If I can't find one for Android, then I may have to carry two devices. I want to replace my Ipod Touch which has PDF apps with my Incredible. Can't wait for the 29th.
How to create a simple powerpoint presentation viewer for Android. I am focusing on the Ms Office 2003 and 2007 format (which means .ppt and .pptx). How do I read the .ppt or .pptx file and show it like a picture slideshow on my Android app?
