Basic search and read books app

Search and Read Books

This app is a basic search and read text app for religious scripture books.

The app will allow a user to find a search term from among many religious scripture .txt files (books). As well as to read those books.

There will be about 100-200 .txt files for a total of about 30-50 megabytes.

If you have already created a similar app- I am very open to just customizing it for my purposes.

Below is an example of how I would like it to run:

Home screen:


Search box at the top, and all the books organized by authors at the bottom.

The user has the option to type in a search term at the top, which will then populate the SearchResults on the next screen.

Or the user can just select an author, and then be taken to the AuthorBook screen which shows all the books under the author.

AuthorBook Screen


All books of a single author

SearchResults screen


Results categorized by author.

User can click on a search result, and the user will be taken to the appropriate book, and be shown the section where the search term was found.



Coming from a search, the user is taken to the section of the book with the search term, and the search terms are bolded.

Coming from the home screen and just selecting a book to read, the users start at the beginning of the text.


I'm looking for bids for both an iPhone & Android app version.

I will provide all .txt files.
