WebReaderViewer - built in image/frame/string/html viewer for kindle

Today I was playing with kindle commands and I've found this one:

WebReaderViewer

It's a nice viewer compatible with different formats, as images or html pages.
You can try it with this command:
Code:
WebReaderViewer ///mnt/us/images/sample.jpg image
(where ///mnt/us/images/sample.jpg must be the path to your image)

or this one for displaying wikipedia.org:
Code:
WebReaderViewer http://www.wikipedia.org uri
or again the following to display some text:
Code:
WebReaderViewer "Hello world!" string
where ///mnt/us/images/sample.jpg is the path to your image. It allows a very nice pinch to zoom and move functionality. On web pages you can't click on links.

Click on the cross symbol or double tap on the screen to close it.

General usage:
WebReaderViewer contentURL type(string/uri/frame/image)

Maybe it could be integrated in some nice apps, like gallery explorers or comics readers. Tested on Kindle PW1. I'd like to know if this command works on Kindle Touch too...

Little problem: the image viewer works, but the dialog "gallery" stays always on top... any idea for fixing this beahviour? I could close the dialog everytime, but it wouldn't be so handy to reopen the gallery each time you see a single image xD

That is really interesting piece of information eureka. Kindle Publishing Guidelines don't say a word about this.

just for fun, I typed "strings `which WebReaderViewer`" and got some neat info...

it seems there is a flag file /mnt/us/MOBI8_DEBUG that it looks for ???

and all the CSS is in there, of course you can't modify it I guess..

just fun to poke around a bit.

strings something is always source of interesting information. Also, some binaries are just a thin delegating wrappers, so applying strings to libraries is also useful.
