I have a huge .doc (Microsoft Word) file (several megabytes) and I need to search it on my iPhone. I have tried like 5 different editors and readers to no avail.

Is there any application that allows searching in .doc files?

  • Which specific apps have you tried already? And by doc you mean Microsoft Word I assume?

  • Do you just need to search/lookup or also to edit the files?

The app "Documents" referred to above is a good option. It searches inside the documents whether the files are PDF, docx, etc… It sports a clean interface and plenty of remote connection options. And not to mention, it's free with no ads!

Give it a go and see if it fits your needs.

I have found an app for that. It is called QuickOffice, it costs 14.99$ and I had to break file into three to make it work. But the search is there and it works.
