[APP] DroidReader 0.5 (11. April 2010), a PDF reader app
this is my first Android App, so please bear with me if there are still errors. It was a major task to start Android programming with such a tough idea, but well, I did not say I started programming with this app :)
DroidReader is a PDF Reader Application. It uses native code in the background, to be specific, it uses the MuPDF rendering software/library. I'm aware of existing closed source PDF readers and some approaches to do it all in Java. So this should be different as for now.
DroidReader is Free and Open Source Software (licence is GPL v3).
The App and its sources are available at Google Code:
http : // code.google.com / p / droidreader
The App is now (since v0.3) also available via SlideME.
(I'm sorry, I can't post a full link as of now, as I'm still a "new user" on this forum, despite reading it since years... so please remove the spaces for now, I think I'll get that settled soon.)
Note for users: This application needs a file manager in order to open PDF files. Generally, you should be able to use a file manager of your choice and just click on the PDF. If you want to use the "Open" menu item, then a filemanager that understands the openintent.org's PICK_FILE intent is needed, e.g. the OI File Manager.
This App needs at minimum the Android 1.5 platform.
v0.5: rewiring of code, noticeable to end user: smaller install footprint, better cmap handling, small changes & bug fixes
v0.4: support for automatic tilesize calculation, now it should work on bigger screens, too. Also there is now a configuration dialog that allows to specify the default zoom level.
v0.3: added an "about" dialog
v0.2: lots of improvements, UI slightly modified for easier navigation, zoom&rotation fully implemented, ability to open password-protected PDFs, CJK support, lots of bugfixes
v0.1: initial version, still very rough and not all that shiny and thus not yet in the Market. Download available on the project's homepage.
Please note that any comments are very welcome! You can comment in this thread (and I will try to answer any questions ASAP) or on the mailing list (see the project's home page).
