Editors' Review

DocX Viewer gives you the ability to open, view, and print files in DOCX format, even if you don't have an up-to-date version of Word. When you open a file in this app, you can also copy and paste the text into the word processing program of your choice for quick and easy editing.

Pros

Straightforward interface: DocX Viewer's interface is as straightforward as they come. Options for opening files and printing are clearly displayed, as are the few options available for customizing the display. There isn't much of a Help file, but even novice users probably won't run into trouble without any guidance.

Printing and copying: Documents printed from the app come out with all formatting and margins intact. And while you can't edit or mark up documents in this app, you can quickly copy and paste all of the text from a file into another word processing program, so you can work on it there.

Cons

Download access: During testing, we were unable to access our computer's Downloads folder from the app's finder, which seemed odd since most of the files you'd be using it to open would probably be downloads from emails or the Internet. In order to open a document through the software, we needed to move it into another folder first, and then access it from there, which seems like an unnecessarily complicated process.

Bottom Line

DocX Viewer is a good tool if you're unable to open DOCX files on your own any other way. However, at this point, most word processing programs, even free ones, can open DOCX files and allow you to edit them as well.
