Finally! a working Visio viewer for Mac - I stumbled across this app in a seach for a Visio viewer. I don't want to pay for a full package (like OG), nor do i want my files shuttled to a web service (like VizMac) - I just need a simple, low-cost local viewer. It looks to be a fairly new app (April 2013) and the Nektony website shows tools for Mac, iPad and iPhone. I went ahead and took the plunge, and bought the Mac app. I tried it on several dozen Visio files (.vsd) and it works great! To me, a lone Mac user in a sea of PC users, this tool is just what I needed. I look forward to the updates. Thank you.

Doesn't work on my mac - It allows me to open the vsd file, but none of the shapes have any info in them. If I open in Visio it is all there. Not sure what the issue is.

It just works…And that’s what I want - I occationally get VSD files from my windows using team members and this opens and displays them like a charm. That’s all I need from it and it does what I need very well.

Review by IT viewer

Truth in advertising! VSD Viewer Works, text formatting is correct! - Attempted to get away with another “Visio Viewer” program just under $7, but it fell short of expectation when it failed the text formatting of several docs. Docs looked horrible as text labels were misplaced etc, regardless of their advertised claim. However, look no further! This Visio doc viewer "VSD Viewer” works as advertised. I have reopened all other docs which were problematic and presto! All good! Happy customer.

It’s the best Visio Viewer. Period. - This is the best Visio Viewer for OS X. Other Visio viewers don’t render drawing properly. VSD Viewer flawlessly renders all my Visio Drawing.

Great app works as intended - Great app been using for a couple of years to handle VSDs coming from other network engineers. Helps great when I’m on call and need to know network diagrams that I’m not familiar with.
