Let's face it: productivity suites like Microsoft Office or the cloud-based Google Docs aren't exactly exciting, but they are among the most vital applications for the businessmen in us. Whether this remains true when 2.8-4.3-inch displays are concerned is debatable, but if you ask DataViz, the company that developed the free Documents To Go app, the answer is a resounding "yes."
The company has just released a brand new version 3.0 of its uber-popular app, which includes numerous improvements, namely:
- a "totally redesigned" UI (not so sure that's for the better, though; all I'm seeing right now is a bunch of ugly blue menus)
- an enhanced file browser
- Google Docs support (the one thing that had always been missing for me)
- an improved PDF viewer that now includes various zooming options (pinch-to-zoom and double-tap-to-zoom), keypad shortcuts, hyperlinks, the ability to rotate a page, render multiple pages, and more
- an "optimized" version of Slideshow To Go
- support for password-protected Office 2003 & 2007 docs as well as support for Microsoft Office 2010 files
The free version of the app doesn't allow you to edit or create files but can be used for reading them. Read More
