Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Extend supported output formats

Hi David, Jirka :

It's pleasure to see you in here with some great imagination.
Thank you for putting your thoughts at correct place and make my idea more stronger.

I think, David is with me and he pointed out some thing similar to my first idea which had in my mind. As I mentioned earlier;
"So far I'm with the idea of "Android-xsl sheet produces android applications (APKs) for each user xml input(which is in DocBook format). This APK has the capabilities such as collapsible table of contents, searchable index and full-text searching.
Ex: if user A wants to build android apk, he can build it by using Android-xsl and install in to Android. Also user B wants an apk, also he should follow previous steps and both have different apk applications for their documents."

So I think Jirka should conclude the final decision and we should wait until his comments.

I'm trying to get in to iOS development[1]. I registered in developer site but unfortunately I can't download their developing tool because of it's a big size of file. I hope to get into iOS soon. These days I'm busy with finishing my Android project[2]. After that I can accelarate my work. Hope Jirka will help me to get though this idea.
David, I think by adding iOS also into my work is enough to do over the summer hopefully.

I'd like to clarify here what I had in mind: when you buy a book from
O'Reilly or subscribe to the Linux journal, you have the option of
getting various formats. For example, you can get an .epub file or a
.apk file (or a mobi for Kindle or pdf). The .apk file in this case is
basically an ebook but instead of opening an epub reader and then
opening the desired epub file, the book appears on your device as an
application. When available, I prefer these to epub files, though it
may just be that I haven't found an epub reader I like. I find the
.apk ebooks to be faster and more convenient for reading books on my
phone in odd moments. I don't know anything about these apk files
other than that. I'm guessing that they're a lot like epub, but that's
just a guess.

I can imagine other things you might do with DocBook on Android and
those might well be worth pursuing. I'll be interested to hear what
you and Jirka come up with, but I wanted to make sure I hadn't
confused the issue :-)

Thank you !.
