View documents with WinDJView

1345038259_1340602910_windjviewView documents with this fast and easy to use PDF alternative reader for Windows.

Taking documentation with you, or even distributing documentation can be a very important task. PDF’s may be the defacto default, but the solution can be expensive to create and thankfully, they aren’t the only game in town. This is one of the major reasons why apps like WinDJView. It’s a DJvu reader for Windows.

DjVu (pronounced “déjà vu”) is a digital document format similar to PDF with advanced compression technology and a high performance value. DjVu allows for the distribution via the Internet and on DVD of very high resolution images of scanned documents, digital documents, and photographs.

WinDJView reads these portable documents and is a fast, compact and powerful viewer with a tabbed interface, continuous scrolling and advanced printing options. It also supports Windows XP to Windows 8.x. If you need to pull parts out, the app will let you first search to find the passages you need but then highlight and copy what you need out.

WinDJView is a solid piece of software and the DJvu format is a great alternative to Adobe’s PDF format. The software has everything that you would want in a reader app, and I found it very easy to install and use. If you want to convert documents to DJvu format, you can do so for free at DJvu.org.

View virtually any file or email attachment you need instantly with Quick View Plus

For businesses it can be costly to download endless pieces of software however with more and more documentation becoming digitalised it is necessary to be able to deal with various different files and attachments. Installation of Quick View Plus means that these can be accessed without taking up time spent on trying to open and convert the files.

There are literally hundreds of conversions possible – we tried a number of different file types including PDF, spreadsheets, databases and more and the QVP managed to read them all successfully, as well as quickly. It is free to try and the licence cost is small enough to pay for itself relatively quickly, when you take in to account the cost of installing individual applications.

There are only two negatives as far as we could tell. Firstly, there is a slight dip in quality of the converted PDF files which don’t come back as cleanly as with Adobe and Foxlt Readers. The other problem is that it doesn’t currently handle multimedia applications which would be handy, particularly for the home user.

We would go so far as saying that this software is essential for small to medium sized businesses that don’t have the budget for endless applications or the time to convert files constantly. It’s Vista and Windows compatible so is opened easily either on the QVP viewer or through Internet Explorer. With this there is no need to get stuck with a file or attachment that you can’t open.

Multimedia options in newer editions would be welcome.
