Application Review of DocumentsToGo + Full Version Key Developed by DataViz, Inc What is DocumentsToGo and what does the Full Version Key unlock? DocumentsToGo is a free application on the Android Market that allows you to view Microsoft Word & Excel files & attachments such as doc, docx, xls, and xlsx. The full version is completely free and it is a nice start if all you want to do is view files sent to you that are the types mentioned above, but to get all the features you do indeed have to buy the key to unlock them. The Full Version Key unlocks these features as per their “More Info” tab at the bottom of their application; Adobe PDF Support ( high fidelity viewing ) Microsoft PowerPoint support ( view and edit ) Create new files on the device Edit, recalculate and save changes View and update charts Zoom, format and send attachments Open password-protected files ‘Live Folder’ for recently used documents And much more… There are no strings attached or any lies or deceit in these words. Everything is as it says. How much does it cost and is the price justified? When this application is not on some sort of sale, the original price sits at $29.99. This is indeed a steep price for an application and for many people, it would not be justified. For somebody who needs to be able to view, edit, send and receive these as an email often, then yes I would say it is well worth the price. Myself, I am a part time student and this application allows me to not always have to lug around my laptop to take notes. I can simply choose to take notes in a word or spreadsheet file, save them, and email them to myself for later. The good news though is that DataViz, Inc is a very smart company who likes money. Because of this love for money they often put their Full Version Key on sale in the Android Market for a few days at a time. Around Christmas time I believe it was down to around $14.99. I purchased the application when it was on their Cinco De Mayo Sale Special, at which point it only ran me a mere $5.55, and at that price it was just too good to pass up. During certain seasons when this application goes on sale, it is just too hard to pass up and for that I must say that yes, the price is justified. What does the Android Market tell me about this application? The Android Market tells me that over 250,000 users have downloaded this application. Of which, 9670 of them have decided to rate this application and it has been awarded four out of five stars. Right in the details portion of this application on the market where the company can write about its product, they state that over 750,000 users have downloaded the free version and that over 50,000 people have become paying customers. Of those 50,000 paying customers, 4524 of them have rated the payed for version. Most people who rated it have given rave reviews of it and it has earned itself four and a half out of five stars. What can you tell me about your personal experience using this application? From my experience, this application has earned every cent of that $5.55 I gave to them for this. The Word Documents are just like you would expect them to be on a computer. You can edit fonts, bold, italic, underline, increase indent, decrease indent, make a table of contents, comment, footnote, endnote, create new, open, close, save, save as, send as email, undo, redo, paste, cut, copy, edit paragraph style, set preferences and even check your word count in all Word Documents. Sheet To Go is your basic stuff as well. You can insert sheets, cell comments, and autosum it. You can format things like the number, cell and sheet. PDF To Go allows you to view PDF Files. Slideshow To Go allows you to do most things that PowerPoint allows you to do. Are there any other drawbacks or reasons to make me think twice about purchasing? Despite many positive things to say about this application there are indeed some drawbacks, as with all applications. Besides viewing a PDF file, there really isn’t much else you can do with it. And while I know that may be reaching for something negative to say, I am spoiled on the computer with the ability to truly edit PDF files. On Slideshow To Go my only issue with the application is that I can do all the editing I want and add tons of content to my slides, but I can not, for the life of me, add a picture from my SD Card to one of my slides. Unless there has been an update recently that I haven’t seen, this is not an option. Lastly, my biggest pet peeve with this application, and apparently on the market it is the one big knock for most customers, is that when you purchase the key to unlock the rest of the applications features, it leaves two icons in your App Drawer. This is the only application I have seen that offers up a key to unlock things or go premium but for some reason can’t just merge the two icons together. It isn’t as if this should be a deal breaker but it does look a bit silly when you scroll through your drawer and see them together. It doesn’t make sense because it is possible to hide one if the developer chooses to, and once you use the pay version there is no need to click the free version. Verdict! All in all I do believe this application is worth the money and the developers have done a great job getting everything pretty bug free. Out of a possible 10 points, I would award DocumentsToGo Full Version 8.5 out of 10 stars. It is a nearly perfect application but there are more features that could, and should be added, as well as the ability to hide the DocumentsToGo free version icon once you have paid for it. It could be worth it to purchase at its original price, but if you are patient enough to wait for a holiday, just wait and catch this bad boy on sale. Thank you for your time and I hope you find this review useful in deciding to purchase or stay away from this application. ~Varking~ _________________________________________________________ Screenshots of the App Application and Game Reviews for Android Just head over to my blog, scroll down, and click any of the five thumbnails to view them in a larger format. _________________________________________________________ My Android App Reviews can be found here at wordpress, but I will also make my reviews available to the android community on places like DroidForums and AllDroid so long as they let me.
