##Usage with react-native-fs

const RNFS = require('react-native-fs');
const FileOpener = require('react-native-file-opener');

const SavePath = Platform.OS === 'ios' ? RNFS.DocumentDirectoryPath : RNFS.ExternalDirectoryPath;
const sampleDocFilePath = SavePath + '/sample.doc';

...

  function openSampleDoc() {
        FileOpener.open(
            sampleDocFilePath,
            'application/msword'
        ).then(() => {
            console.log('success!!');
