Cute Android: Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Graphicpages (A comic viewer for the Android platform)

Description
Graphicpages is an open source Android project which planned to be an advanced comic viewer/image feed reader that downloads the ‘pages’ to the local device, caching them, and allows the user to view them later. Loosely modeled after Google Listen.

PlannedFeatures
View subscriptions

* A subscription could be a web comic, RSS feed, Atom feed or other feed
* A subscription contains pages
* A ‘page’ is a single image in the comic/feed (or perhaps a set of images for complex comics)

Automatically download new pages to the local disk

* As new pages become available in the subscription, the application should automatically download them (depending on settings) and store them locally
* Downloaded pages should be available to the other image viewers on the application (added to the media ContentProvider)

Get next/last page when browsing pages

* When viewing comics, asynchronically download the next comic in the sequence, then the previous one

Save lists of viewed comics

* Store the ‘read’ or ‘viewed’ state of pages
* Optionally discard viewed comics (when space is needed only?)

Bookmarks

* automatically save the last page viewed in a sequence
* Browsing from in the middle of a sequence

Jump to page

* Jump to page by date or number

Starred pages

* Starred pages are not automatically deleted
