m.c. flatboat[0.8.31] - a mobile pdf viewer

I'd like to present a mobil PDF reader, I've written during the last months:
modern computer flatboat. You'll find it's homepage (including download links) here.

Some of flatboat’s interesting features are (for other features see the help page):
- a column mode: columns are detected automatically and the zoom is adapted accordingly
- an in-document history: you followed a link or looked sth. up in the index/TOC? With a single key you can go back to the page you read before
- writing support for ink annotations and text annotations (others may follow)
- an E-Ink version for Android which simplifies the page before flicking/scrolling, which reduces the slow screen refresh operations (tested on the PRS-T1)

Currently, flatboat is available for Android, Ubuntu, Mac OS X, Windows and Maemo/Meego. Since it uses Qt and MuPDF's libfitz, flatboat is quite portable, so if you have a phone/reader etc. where a pdf reader is missing, but Qt is available, it might be possible to port flatboat to it.
