Default Beamberry replacement?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
I'm not a frequent poster as you can see. Beamberry ceased to work in it's free form and I'm wondering if there is free app. that does the same? I never need to edit a doc or spreadsheet, just view them. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks
Gary

do you just want to view them or are you trying to store them to the device

Once in a while I need to store them but mostly I just need to view them.

viewing can be done with email, and to store just save the email to the device. with no media card you are VERY limited on the amount you can store to the 8700 series.

I realize it's not free but BeamBerry does a nice job of this...you can view the documents on your media card. It does require the cell network to upload the document to before rendering but it does it all pretty seamlessly. I'm using the new BeamBerry and like it.

I know I can view within the e-mail but I find spreadsheets a pain to view that way. The cells are so squished together:(
