Changes are:

I put this version up on Google Play store. So if anyone wants to express support for the project this way you can actually buy it:

Anyway, it will always be available for free at launchpad project page.

ACBF Viewer for Android 0.1

Written for Advanced Comic Book Format by Robert Pastierovic on 2014-12-26

Was playing with Kivy framework and ported ACBF Viewer to Android! I didn't expect it to be this easy, but here it is. You can download the ACBFViewerforAndroid-0.1-debug.apk and install on your phone/tablet. Included is Craphound comic by Cory Doctorow where you can try different viewing modes (whole page, zoom to width, zoom to frame). Simple library is also present where you can import other comics (you need to set the path in Settings first).
App needs a bit of a polishing, which I can do later, but it is already very well usable ... actually I already switched to using it as the reading experience is for me the best of all Android apps I tried.

Updated on 2014-12-26.
