Great app. Reads .XPS files - This app works wonderfully. It does exactly what I need it to do. I can save a .XPS files from a machine using Microsoft's Enternet Explorer, bring them over to my Mac, open the .XPS file with XPSReader and convert the file to a .PDF file that I can archive or pass around as I like. Great App. The other apps that read .XPS files start at $35.00

Review by Ergodicity

100% Crash, can't open simple document - I purchased this in hopes of opening xps files on my mac, printed from a PC. Every single XPS or OXPS file I've opened crashes, even single page documents. If you're hoping to convert XPS to PDF, then my this is not the app for you. I'm off to figure out if I can return/refund this; I'll spend my $ on a windows PDF print driver.

Not bad, but ... - This app is a more user-friendly than NiXPS, but not so fast. It's a nice idea, but please fix bugs. Can not see information in file with high resolution(( And I caught one crash on the file with a big sizes (H*W) like a plot.

Review by Sal1mand3r

It saved me in a pinch - I had an XPS file I created on a Windows machine that showed process threads that I had to get to a tech support guy and he had no way to read XPS on his machines. So I quckly grabbed the first program I could find (this one) and opened the file. Then saved it as a PDF file and got it to the support guy literally minutes before they closed. I can say that I have explore all the capabilities of the app, but it does everything I need it to do. It opened the file rather instantly, but I only had to convert a simple four page text only XPS file.

Review by Vitaly

Well done - Well, this reader is really more good-looking and cheap than other XPS readers, and works great with most documents… However, when trying to open a document with lots of elements (e.g. a big diagram), you need to wait rather long time. Taking into account that developers usually fix such issues quickly, hope that next update would be more fast and stable.

Review by A Little Disgruntled...

Bad Rendering... - The one file I bought this to view was rendered very poorly. I was able to open on my iPad with MuPDF no problem, but not so much using XPSReader on my Mac… I see there have been no updates yet though, so perhaps one will come along! (Always the optimist).
