Word Widget Free


Wanting the latest and greatest version for Android 3.2+? Go here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vantagetechnic.wordwidget

This version is for Android 2.3.x to Android 3.1.x.

Word Widget is a widget that allows a user to view and scroll text line by line from .txt, .docx, .odt, and .pdf* files.

*Disclaimer: Text from a PDF must already be embedded in the PDF in order to extract it.

Word Widget allows for multiple instances of the widget to be active with different .txt, .docx, .odt, or .pdf files displayed in each one.

Word Widget can be dynamically re-sized using a custom home launcher that supports widget re-sizing.

Instructions:
Add word widget like you would any other widget to the screen.

The file manager configuration screen will be displayed. Browse through available .odt, .txt, .pdf, or .docx files on your device and select the one to use.

You also have access to general settings and color settings. General settings include font size, file tailing, and number of lines to tail on the file. Color settings include background and font colors for the widget.

What is file tailing? File tailing limits the content displayed to the specified number of last lines in the file.

To alter the configuration of a already displayed Word Widget, simply tap on the settings button on the widget. To reload the contents of the widget simply tap on the reload button. To scroll up and down line by line tap on the up and down arrows. Widgets do not allow for holding down of buttons. The buttons must be tapped in order for the command to be recognized properly.

***Coming Soon***
Dropbox Support
New Configuration UI (Leaner, meaner, and easier to use!)

need larger scroll buttons very useful app as i can have my schedule on a page all the time, but the scroll buttons are so small i can barely tap them and make them register. The picture you have on this google play page has very large scroll buttons. How do i get those ?

Simple and useful Vantage Technic, This is a great widget, does exactly what it is intended to do in a simple manner, thanks for putting the effort to do this. 2 quick thoughts that might help (both for this version >= 2.3 and the >=3.2): If using buttons to scroll: it might help if you can tap the up or down arrows and scroll by page which would minimize the number of times you have to tap on the buttons (this would make it a lot easier to read long text files or docs). If the bottom widget control buttons can be made a bit larger it might be easier to tap on them, right now I have to tap a few times before I get the right buttons. A quick unrelated question: why is the file size somewhat large ( ~ 4MB ) I am thinking is due to the integrated file browser UI mostly, which actually looks quite nice. Thanks for the good work!
