view ODF on Symbian OS and other mobile systems

As more and more governments are adopting ODF --some of them even as the obligatory document format-- it is disappointing that no open source viewer for Symbian OS or other mobile systems exists. (Symbian OS is the leading smartphone operating system in Europe, with a market share of about 80%)

This project is aimed to support and release the source code of Mobile Office under a license like GPL3/LGPL3.

The following will be supported by the funding:

  • create an appropriate project under e.g Google Code, Sourceforge or other
  • release Mobile Office's source code under an appropriate license
  • add end-user documentation about Mobile Office as html and/or pdf pages as well as help content integrated into the application itself.
  • finish up some remaining stuff to make it compatible with some changes done by, e.g. in relation to encryption of documents.
