Viewing multi-page tiff files from AppTree

Meridian Mobile
It was realized that tiff images do not open well in the AppTree viewer.  Only page one will be displayed of multi-page files.  There are currently over 1000,000 tiff files in Meridian that will eventually be converted to pdf/a.  They are in the drawings and the documents area.  Not the equipment and materials.  The drawings are mostly single page tiff images, but the documents may have multiple pages.
 
Procedure
 
For an interim fix to the issue, you will have to download a tiff viewer from the app store.
One time Set-up
  1. Open the App Store on your mobile device.
  2. Search for tiff viewer
  3. Download the free app called Fast Image Viewer Free (FIV Free)
