OR2012 Developer Challenge:
Cross-Repository Mobile Application
Petr Knoth and Vojtech Robotka from the Open University collaborated on an idea for a mobile application to search and explore full-text resources stored in Open Access repositories, which Petr presented at the DevCSI Open Repositories 2012 Developer Challenge.
In his original entry, Petr gave the following description of his idea:
The application should be available for the two main mobile operating systems (Android and iOS) and should work on both tablets and smartphones. Because iOS applications are developed in Objective C and Android applications in Java, it is necessary to develop two clients and register them in the iTunes Store and the Android Market (Play Store). These clients need to be supported by a server application that will provide a seamless layer over Open Access repository content. This application will provide an API for the mobile clients.
