Re: Lets build a zim android app together!


Hi Marco,

Afraid financing is not the limiting factor at this moment. Personally I
have a full time job in engineering, so more income would not allow me to
spent more time on zim.

Besides, we actually have some money from donations, and so far it has
proven more difficult to find people to take the money than to find people
willing to donate ...

At this time what we really need is a few volunteers with some coding / web
skills that enjoy diving in and helping out.

However I'm open to proposals to get some of this work done in exchange for
money. After all, a lot of donations do mention an android app as their
wishlist item.

One task at this moment where non-techies could help is to make a mockup of
how the application should look and describe where to click and what
happens. This kind of thing you can draw out in any paint program. Putting
it in the wiki allows for collaboration on this.
