    You have a number of choices.

    OffiViewer- opens PDF, MS Word/Excel/PowerPoint, OpenDocument, and RTF documents. It's free, but it is still beta and only opens documents up to 1mb. Also, one thing that kind of urks me is the fact that you need good internet connection, and that it sends the doc to a server (1st) to convert the doc.

    OfficeSuite Viewer- opens DOC, DOCX, TXT, XLS, XLSX, CSV, PPT, PPTX, PPS, PPSX, and PDF files. Costs $9.99. The app itself is 2.75mb.

    Documents To Go 2.0- opens MS Word/Excel/PowerPoint and PDF files. It also allows you to edit and create. Also has password protection. The major issue though is the fact that it costs $29.99. I wouldn't waste my money on it, unless you can. If the price came down to $10, then I would consider buying it.

    Those are the only apps that I have come across that, IMO, are worth giving a try.

    There is a free Doc's To Go "lite". It views documents in the office suite/pdf.

    The full version adds editing/creating functions.

    If all you need is "read only", the free version does the job....

    Really? I thought it only allowed you to view Word and Excel files? Maybe I misread it.

    OOOps, you're right. You have to upgrade to the full version for powerpoint support. And powerpoint was what you are specifically asking about....... And I need to pay attention...
