It is certainly a useful utility for users looking for an app to simply open and view files. However, the application lacks some basic features like ‘drag and drop’ support to open files. There are no decent keyboard shortcuts and the PDF files are not displayed on a single extended page. The archives (.rar, .zip) cant be viewed directly, you first need to extract the file/folder from an archive to your desktop prior to viewing it.

Note: The app requires online installation during which it prompts to install additional free software like toolbars, browser add-ons, game applications, anti-virus applications, etc. They all are completely optional and you can easily decline their installation.

    Great! I used this software in the past and forgot its name and link. Thanks for bringing it out.
    Frankly speaking this type of softwares have use only when it has portable versions which it doesn’t have. Because on your own PC or on PCs where your have access you can install desired softwares. This type of softwares are very limited in the sense that they are worst in the catagory of individual softwares. It doesn’t have the features of a complete PDF reader/Image Viewer etc. So, this softwares will not be able to fully replace any of the specific softwares.
