Visio Viewer for iOS is a new way to view and share Visio diagrams that were created in the Visio desktop application. You first upload a .vsd or .vsdx file to OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, or SharePoint. Then, people can view and share the file in Visio Viewer for iPad or Visio Viewer for iPhone. You can also receive a .vsd or .vsdx file as an email attachment, and then tap the attachment to view on your iPad or iPhone. Want to know more about Visio Viewer for iOS?

This app is only a viewer; it doesn't allow you to edit. Editing requires the Visio desktop app or Visio for the web.
