When will it read .doc, .pdf et al docs? And just to be difficult, keep the original format, if only for .rtf. Otherwise a sweet app, and a great idea.

Once again...please don't use installers when they aren't needed. This app is nice. Drop a text file on it and you get a semi-transparent window full screen. press 1 for white on black and 2 for black on white. I couldn't get the app to page w/o using the mouse so it's just not useful to me. I would like to see some help/instructions, escape taking one out of fullscreen as usual (even if using transparency), and of course keyboard control. I can see using it every so often and w/ a scroll wheel or trackpad w/ scrolling it could be good. I experienced 1 crash after hiding the app and using the application switcher to go back to it. The screen gave me a normal windowed mode then quit. No data lost etc.
