GSOC Android App LibreOffice Viewer

i am new to LibreOffice and i came here over GSOC. My name is Mirko and i love android-developing. Sadly i couldn't find the LibreOffice Viewer mentioned at GSOC. I really would like to improve the android app and getting it out of the beta status.
The last years while studying i worked for several startup companies but never for an open source project. Therefore many things here are new to me but interesting, too.

My suggestions to improve the app ( and hopefully my work):

Better (working) context menu. The search-item lacks function. Opened files need context-fitting menus. As an example:

- printing
- searching words in the file
- jump to page

Basic operations in the files, e.g. scrolling through pages(with 1 finger)  sometimes zoom hardly into the current page.
Actually there are hundred of things to do in the app.

the Android version lives under the android directory in the core
LibreOffice repository:

  http://docs.libreoffice.org/android.html
  http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/

You should start by cloning the repository and checking the readme file
there to try to get it built :)

Best,

 Welcome.


Please do not for  your license statement and to get gerrit setup.
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/Developers

I you want help to get started or have any questions, then please contact me. I am here to help you (and others) getting their first patch submitted.

LibreOffice is a very big program and getting it build, setting up gerrit, and getting the first patch right, can be a bit challenging, therefore do not hesitate to email me if you want help.

I am not a specialist in the android viewer, but it is a place where a lot of work can be done.
