Email me when discounted: 

AntiWordService is a free filter service from DEVONtechnologies that enables any Cocoa application able to read plain text, for example TextEdit or DEVONthink Personal Edition, to open Microsoft Word documents. The actual conversion is done by the command line utility »ntiword« So, up to now, only plain text is preserved, no images and no formatting... though this may change in some future version on AntiWordService.

What's New

Version 2.0.1 is compiled using GCC 3.3 and therefore slightly faster.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.1 or later

Just received a Word document (.doc) in an e-mail and needed to open it in a jiffy. Found AntiWordService and installed in the main "Library" (I needed to make a Services folder first). After that, I was able to open the Word document with TextEdit just dandy!!! Thanks for making this available...

Extremly useful remanufacturing/bundling of a well-known OSS Tool (approx. 5 stars) ...

I visited Mac Update, as usual, to find a piece of software that did something I needed. Found this great little freebie here! Took seconds to download, opened the .doc document in Text Edit with ease, and it looked great when I printed it out.

I would just like to thank the developer for this very useful and handy tool!

Your problem is resolved in the first paragraph of the "ReadMe".

some future version on AntiWordService, though."

Im using Mac OS 10.1. Im not sure if this is happening to everyone, but after I edit the file with AntiWord in TextEdit, all images are lost and it is converted into a plain font. Still, it is a great converter for plain text in word documents. Nice work.
