Docs 1.1 has been released and it brings a ton of updates.
The app now supports inline previews of your documents, no longer needed to start Safari to view a doc!
A completely rewritten gui, which i think is very nice.
And last but not least the option to play media files via AVPLAYER.

1) To be able to play your audio and video files with Docs, you will need to install MobileFinder first and then AVPLAYER.

2) To get Docs to play your Audio and video files we need to open MobileFinder first and adjust some settings. to achieve this, go to the settings tap in MobileFinder and scroll down to File Associations.
Tap the button to create the following new associations. (in these cases i wish we had copy and paste :) ).
You will need to restart MobileFinder every time you add a association!

3) Let’s locate and install Docs 1.1

4) Let’s run Docs and have a look. The default setting will not let you preview your documents. Let’s go to the settings and change that.

5) Restart the app docs, and now you will be able to preview your docs inline.

6) To put files onto your iPhone for later viewing check this post.
the directory where you need to put your files is /var/mobile/Media/myDocs

 This is a very good and simple app to use. I’d recommend this!

This little app is available in the through the BigBoss packaging source, see our sources page.
