The app would provide content on specific themes/topics with text, audio and video extracts. The app would be like a container for packages (which would be downloaded onto the smartphone or tablet from an online repository) and a viewer of the local data packages: basic text reader, audio player and video player.
It is aimed to be a free app for smartphones and tablets (iPad, iPhone, Android). The app would be mostly used offline apart when updating the theme packages.
No ad, no social network interaction, no special access requirement.
A brief description of the app:
- a welcome page,
- a list of themes available and a (+) option to add new themes,
- on the available themes to add page, select the ones to download and the download would be done from a web server (via some php web app), the result would be added on the local drive of the device, space allows: a zip-type file containing text, mp3, mp4 and some xml data description files
- on the 'themes' page, clicking on one theme would lead to another page with a format choice: text, audio, video; selecting one would list the available data for the chosen format: list of texts, list of videos, list of videos.
- selecting one data file will display the content
Those are the main pages.
Added to those, there will be a setting page (colour, font size, ...), an information page, and some bookmark facility. As well should be provided a resume feature for the package downloads, the possibility to stream data if the content is a link and the data not included in the package (this could be a later feature), and some anonymous usage statistics.
For interested serious freelancers, we can provide more detailed specs.
