Portable Universal Viewer Pro 220.127.116.11
As the name implies, Universal Viewer Pro is a software program which allows you to view the content of various file types, including PDF, RTF, BMP, JPG, GIF, DOC, XLS, AVI, MPG and MP3, just to name a few.
The interface of the program is clean and pretty intuitive. Files can be loaded into the working environment by using either the file browser, folder view or “drag and drop” functionality.
So, you can use the standard select, copy and paste functions, as well as search and go to. Universal Viewer Pro provides several viewing modes for files, according to their type – text (e.g. word wrap, encoding), image (e.g. show EXIF details, center picture) or Internet (e.g. offline browsing).
In addition, you can switch to full screen mode, make Universal Viewer Pro stay on top of other applications, manage plugins, customize the toolbar and configure user tools, zoom in and out, as well as manually edit the initialization file.
Universal Viewer Pro contains user documentation, has a good response time, and supports keyboard shortcuts. We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation; Universal Viewer Pro did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. To conclude, Universal Viewer Pro comes packed with the necessary and suffice elements for viewing the content of a wide range of file types.
