Re: Lets build a zim android app together!


Hi Jaap,

I would love to see zim client on android devices.  I think that depending
on dropbox & similar for file synchronization is a good way to go.
Personally I would not be interested in editing on the mobile device. If I
ever want to edit something in zim, I can always use standard text editor.
I would rather like to see a nice, searchable read-only version of mobile
zim - this would be my main task - easy use (search) of knowledge stored in

I can't promise much dev time to help but I will definitely do some testing
if we get something out.
