It’s been a while since my last blog post so here’s a small update on the state of MeBook. I’ve been working on several new features, changes to rendering and overall improvements.
MeBook now has two reading “modes”: scrolling mode and paginated mode.
In the scrolling mode the whole book is loaded in a scrollable view. There’s also a basic autoscroll which can be controlled using the volume keys.
In the paginated mode the book is loaded one section at a time and one can either swipe to move between pages or use the volume keys to do so. Depending on the size of the section it might take some time to render it.
Bookmarks can be added by pressing and holding in the readingview. In the Add bookmark -dialog bookmarks are given a name and one of 27 different colors. Bookmarks can be accessed from a toolbar button and they are shown as a simple scrollable list.
In the settings it’s now possible to change between colormodes (black/white or grey/black), change readingmode and force backlight on when reading.
I’ve uploaded a new version to extras-devel if you are brave enough to try it
GSoC period is just over it’s halfway point and I hope I’m able to implement a few major features with time left for improving the code, testing and fixing bugs.
