Hello everyone,
I'd like to ask does iPad crash when opening a spetific word file?
Everytime when I open the word file(see the url) my iPad will exit the program and jump to home screen automatically, but the word file looks fine in PC and I have tried other programs to open this word file like goodreader,mail,Safari,iworks...and it's all the same...crach

Can someone tell me what happen to my iPad or it's just a bug in iPad?
Thanks.


Word file location:

I couldn't get it to open. There are probably 5000 people downloading it right now since you posted the link.

I do have sometimes trouble, but I use both Goodreader and DocsToGo, and one of them usually works for .DOCs

I scanned it for viruses on my laptop because it crashed all three methods that I have to view .doc files including GoodReader, Docs To Go and the default Apple viewer.

Seems clean, but could it be corrupt?

WITH, that is just a bunch of long-hand math scribbles scanned, copied and pasted into a document. Why would someone save that as a .DOC?

I guess it wasn't even made in Word originally, but OpenOffice, and there are some compatibility problems. Can you confirm?

IMO, that teacher is probably a math genius, but a total PC noob - that should have been PDF format anyhow.

The bottom line is if you are having trouble opening it on a pc then there is no way you will open it on the iPad regardless what app you use go to plan B Dump it or get a new copy.

No, it opens ok on the PC (for me anyway) and it really crashes every word-reading possibility that I have on the iPad.

I guess only the OP can help to figure it out if it is important.

Yes, it's just a lot of hand-writting math solutions scanned into a word file,but I'm not sure whether the teacher used Microsoft office or not. (although I don't think that my teacher used OpenOffice, because our school has already offered licensed Office to every teacher and student).

But is it possible just because the file (or the picture in the word) is too large for iPad?

That's what I'm thinking too, I dont actually use Word at home or I would throw something together to test the theory.
