EPUB3Reader open-source Android App released

EPUB3Reader is a proof-of-concept Android App optimized for reading complex EPUB 2/3 ebooks, e.g. books with many internal/external links and/or with parallel texts.

The project has been developed by three students, under my supervision, at the Department of Information Engineering, University of Padova, Padova (Padua), Italy.

You can get the APK, the code (MIT license) and some EPUB ebooks featuring parallel texts (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 license) from the GitHub public repo:

https://github.com/pettarin/epub3reader

Screenshots are here:

The app is not production-grade yet, but I think it shows some interesting UI tricks novel or not widely adopted in EPUB reading systems. Please see the README for a discussion.

Comments are welcome.
