Any app out there that can open up Tiff files? I have searched and searched. Need to open up faxed that are sent via Tiff files.
thanks in advance
Did you ever find a .tiff viewer? I'm in the same boat as you with my faxes. I contacted SLG Mobile about BeamReader. They responded saying BeamReader is a PDF viewer and doesn't support any formats for opening pictures.
I agree. I can't see why there aren't any TIFF viewer apps? I have faxes sent directly to e-mail. The only success I've had is to forward these mails/faxes to my google mai account where I can at least view the first page (Often the cover page). If anyone can assist I think there will be many grateful users.
It isn't exactly a TIFF viewer, but I found an online service that will convert TIFF to PDF, for free, via email. As in you email the TIFF to them, and they email you back a PDF. I've not had the chance yet to try this out, but thought it worth mentioning here as at least a possibility. Free Email PDF Converter to convert documents like word to PDF via email
I tried this, but it doesn't open the TIFF direct from email. It makes you save the file to the phone, then open and convert from there. I simply want to view the TIFF file. What's odd is that if it's emailed to my Gmail account, the preview opens there and I CAN view the TIFF file. Why is it that Google made the GMail preview work, but in Android itself there's no way to view it! I tried the TIFF Fax viewer that's in the market, but that didn't work on the Epic 4G.
P.D.A.C. Technologies's TIFF and FAX viewer will does the job. The free "lite" version displays single-page TIFF files; the pay version ($10--ouch!) works on multipage FAX TIFF files. I can confirm that the free version works; I haven't shelled out for the pay version, since I don't need it yet.
Thanks for the info! I have never paid that much for an Android program, and probably won't now as a matter of principle. Maybe one day they will have a sale on it, but until then, I will continue to use MyFax to bypass my server fax.
I just released a free TIFF viewer that allows you to view multi-page TIFF files from gmail and has a built-in file browser. It's several orders of magnitude faster than what's out there. I can understand the other app's trouble with viewing TIFF files from within Gmail because Gmail starts the external viewer intent with a stream instead of a file. It also displays animated GIFs, and animates them in the file browser.
