    Thats what I would like to know too. Few days ago was assuming DocsToGo will open .txt file, but didn't work.

    Look for "text reader" on the app store. It doesn't have the best interface, but it definitely works and I've used it quite a few times for standard .txt files.

    I had the free version but paid the exorbitant price of $0.99 for the more html aspects. I have asked the programmer to think about adding a search function and maybe access to subfolders.

    The newest version of Files & Folders (currently pending app world review) includes a plain text file viewer. It also supports .zip files, pictures, Dropbox, Google Docs and sending files via e-mail.

    Release notes are here. Approval usually takes a day or so. I'll update this thread once the new version is approved.

    I don't know if it has changed with later os updates but in the past you could just change the file extension of the text file from .txt to .doc and the playbook will open them.

    I'll give it a try and report back.

    I just tried changing the .txt extension to .doc and the words to go app will open the text file.

    I wasn't able with DocsToGo to open a .txt file.

    Probably need to view .txt file only few times per year, but when need the functionality is an issue ...
