I am looking for a way to view PostScript files in iOS. It appears that there's no built-in mechanism in iOS for the same. Also, I'm unable to find any viewer app on the App Store.

While Safari for macOS supports viewing it, iOS version doesn't appear to do so. Is there any app that renders postscript as opposed to showing the text file?

  • PostScript files are text files. We have a software recommendation tag and meta post on how to ask for software recommendations if that's what you seek here. – bmike May 29 '19 at 15:40
  • Thanks @bmike. Yes, that's what I want, unless there's an app-free way to do it, which seems unlikely. – Mars May 29 '19 at 18:52

The iOS Dropbox app renders PostScript files in its file browser and viewing panel, exactly as for PDFs or other image formats.

  • Officially it only displays eps files, but renaming my .ps file to .eps made it work. The other answers probably work, but I don't want to use a website, and I tend to avoid Google products, so I'm marking this as the answer for me. – Mars Jun 4 '19 at 1:30
  • .ps files worked for me without having to change the extension to .eps. – benwiggy Jun 4 '19 at 11:51
  • Interesting. Well, it's good to have the tip here in case someone else has my issue. Maybe different versions of Dropbox, or different plans (I have the free plan), or different iOS versions? I don't know. – Mars Jun 5 '19 at 0:40

You can go to this site and read the file using your browser. There is also an option to convert files to a different format.
