The present application comprises an alternative presentation for the Convention on the Grant of European Patents, published by the European Patent Office (EPO) in September 2013. The application's content is a direct copy from the PDF/HTML files available at the EPO's web-page (www.epo.org).
The embodiment herein published for Android devices, allows to carry the Convention anywhere with the following practical advantages: navigating through the tree structure that forms the table of contents; executing searching operations on the content; and the possibility to directly focus a part of the Convention, such as an article.
All the elements on the application are directly instantiated from the standard libraries of the system, allowing for the source-code to be from third-party dependencies. Further more, the main operation on the application's execution consists in the presentation of text to the device screen and, as such, no special permission is needed to be given for installation or execution.
All suggestions, critics or usage reports are naturally welcome!
