1.1 - Added orientation switch and propagation (open "Reading Now") to Nook reader
1.0 - Initial release with home and CoolReader option.
Investigating the way to distinguish if opening reading now book and not other epubs in order not to show menu on any library book click.
Just got nook last Sunday as gift and immediately noticed after root that back/menu buttons in status bar is great, but would be even better to use book button as home OR as menu, was messing with framework, etc. to no avail, but finally got a better and simpler solution, but with cons.
After installing CoolReader I noticed that "reading now" button will trigger android select app menu with Nook Reader and CoolReader, so it is broadcast event, opening with CoolReader shows it is getting started epub.
So, here it is. Simple app, registers as one of the epub readers, by having last read in native nook reader any epub - and by pressing "reading now" button it will trigger app select dialog with my app in list (you can check to always open epubs with it).
It will show styled popup menu (see screenshot) containing only Home (will open default one or list of available homes if none selected as default), orientation switch, CoolReader shortcut (hardcoded now) and Nook Reader (this one will open remembered "Reading Now" book)
1. Will be triggered on any broadcast event to open epub. (I don't care as I read in fb2)
2. If nothing in "reading now" it will not be triggered as well if "reading now" is not epub
3. hardcoded shortcuts for now
If it generates enough interest I can improve app (in current state functionality is enough for me). I could think of adding next features:
1. Add/Configure any shortcuts, e.g.:
* Back/Menu buttons in addition to home (this will required root to run)
* Add/Configure any shortcut
2. Add ability to propagate event data, e.g. if "reading now" sending "warandpeace.epub" to this app - send it to launching app if configured. This will allow to register this app to open epub and then open configured reader with epub data - done, besides configuration
3. Investigate launch origin (launching activity) and if it is not opening from status bar, but for example from astro/library - open configured reader propagating data.
4. Organize shortcuts as tree
5. Add recent apps submenu
