Default View microsoft word, excell, powerpoint and more..

Please Login to Remove!

I recently purchased a pearl through ATT. The description on the site says that included features: View Microsoft® Word, Excel, PowerPoint®, & more

I have tried loading an excel file onto my memory card and then opening it but it wont open. So what do I need to do?

Simprit Gridmagic is great for Excel, the free version has a limitation of 50kb though. E-Office allows viewing and editing of Word and Excel files, but not Powerpoint editing. It does have a built in file explorer that should allow for PPT viewing.

And after you do that, delete the DocumentsToGo.alx file in your OS folder. Otherwise next time you run apploader it will downgrade you back to the original version.
