The DataViz Advantage

Docs To Go, now in its 11th year, is developed by DataViz, Inc., a producer of quality software for Windows and Mac for more than 26 years.
Documents To Go Full Version Key has a 4.3-star rating in the Android Market and a 3.0-star rating in the Amazon Appstore.

To be clear, this isn't the app itself. You will still need to install the Documents to Go 3.0 Main App first. And make sure you don't install one from the Android Market and the other from the Amazon Appstore.

The reason the Acer Iconia A500 tablet is incompatible is that it comes with a pre-installed version of the free Documents to Go. In order to "activate" that version, you have to buy a key from the Android Market.

Those who are considering "buying" a Free Amazon Appstore app might want to consider what it means to developers.

Amazon.com opened up the Appstore despite a lawsuit by Apple, which has previously trademarked the term "App Store." Microsoft has filed an appeal against that trademark, saying the term is too generic. Amazon.com has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
