Laserlizard ,

Yay, actually yields readable text

This is the THIRD paid app I downloaded to try and read the XPS files that a client insists on sending me. It's the first one that DIDN'T louse up the text spacing (letters too far apart within the s a m e w o r d, no extra space between onewordandthenext, some letters on top of previous letters like a typewriter sith a squirrelly carriage-advance). With this one I can read it, I can select, copy, and paste it, and that’s good enough for me.

Doesn't work on Mojave

I was able to read the first page until I got to the bottom of it. Then it just up and quit. Then, when I tried to run the app again, as soon as I clicked on Lite version, it just aup and quit. Uninstalled.

Skippy the bush kangaroo ,

Only half a document

Won’t open full document unless you pay. I don’t think Apple will let me say the two words I’d like to the developers, but the second word is “you!"
