PDF/DOC Launcher

I have a lot of PDFs and DOC files on my phone I use for reference at work and I have to go to file and find the one I want to view them is there a way to set up a icon for each one that I can click on and view them like you would in windows.

I did not find a solution for the .doc files, but this app might work for your PDF files:

Re: PDF/DOC Launcher

I'm not sure if the Electrify came preinstalled with QuickOffice, but that

will allow you to veiw .PDF, and .doc files.

And this will allow you to open the files right from QuickOffice.

Thanks,

Re: PDF/DOC Launcher

I tried  Group Organizer it was a nice program but not quite what I was looking for. But I got a tip from user on a different fourm about the program listed below and it will do everything I wanted and more thanks for your help here hope this info helps someone else as much as it has helped me.

Quote: "With a file manager like EStrongs File Explorer you can put shortcuts of your docs on the home screen.

With EStrongs go to your doc, long press on the file name and at the context choose shortcut ... voila Go back to the home screen and you will find your doc as shortcut."

Worked great for me PDFs DOCs XLS TXT
