    How can I open files from a mobile app?

    GrendelDeveloper Level 1

      I've got a mobile app developed in 4.6.  Part of our app includes the ability to store files on our remote servers which users can access.  In its simplest form the app displays a list of the files which the user can then click on to open.  I tried throwing a navigateToURL which works - although it's ugly as hell.  It opens the browser which then throws it to the os.  Again, it works, but I know there's got to be a better way. 

       

      Files will include PDF, images (jpg, tiff, etc), and Word and Excel docs. 

       

      Any suggestions?  TIA
