Sorry, but from the users perspective I disagree.  I am viewing a file.  I 
have been using OS X's Preview for a few years and find it simple and works 
great.  Gnome also now has a similar application called Evince.

Like already stated as the specs for this "app" it is for basic viewing: 
zooming, seeing the file info etc.  These are the same user requirements for 
pdfs, tiff etc.
