You might be someone with an all round Internet facility and would not mind spending a few MBs of data transfer for viewing those documents which are so very important to you. This app is not for those. It is for those who even when without an internet connection would want to view their documents. It is for those who would like to see what exactly they have in the document without having to upload to an online service (say Google Docs) and then ask the website to display the content.
While there are numerous applications which promise to display your documents on mobile so very well, no one gets close to ThinkOffice. There are two versions, lite and full. Of course, the lite has ads, and cannot create documents while the full version is paid and can edit documents and can also show you the PDF files. In case, you just want a document viewer, but no editor, this is the app you want.
It can display the files created with MS office. You can open .DOC, .DOCX, .PPT, .PPTX, .XLS and .XLSX formats using this application. It can display almost everything as you want. However, there are minor glitches, as is with every other software out there. The first problem we found in the Word File viewer was that it does not get the images right. If you have images in the document and you have text wrapped around them, they don’t show the way they should. The second problem we found was nothing. Well, there are ads in every free app, almost. So we won’t count that as a glitch.
When it comes to the paid version, well, we would suggest, better do not buy it unless you are really in need of editing documents. The reason for us saying resides in its erroneous behaviour with edits. One of the .DOC edits we made in the paid version reset all our fonts to “times new roman”. The PDF viewer which comes along in the Paid version could not display images well enough. Moreover, we found that edits made to a .XLSX file had to be saved as a .XLS file. Since documents can be complex, this might result in pretty serious problem if you wanted to change that one single word in your worksheet. If you buy this app, make sure, you do not edit very complex documents. Also, if you want a PDF viewer, better go and use Adobe PDF reader.
