Last week I decided to learn Python, or more specifically PyS60.
So far I'm really impressed, and to celebrate my first week anniversary of this great new language I thought I'd release my first app written in it.
One thing I really wanted on all the S60 nokias I've owned was a comic book reader, I have a huge collection of classic Comic books, all scanned and stored in CBR/CBZ format. I used to read them on the PSP but now I have the 5800, with a much better screen I was really hoping to be able to do the same.
So here is ComicTouch, a simple but effective CBZ reader.
For those who don't know, a CBZ is basically a collection of images stored in a ZIP file for convenience.
Support for CBZ/ZIP files
JPG/Gif and PNG content
Full Screen mode with Touch/Gesture based controls
Intelligent Auto-fit scaling option
Support for CBR/RAR files
Password protected CBZ/ZIP files
To use this software you must have the latest PyS60 runtimes installed (1.9.3 or higher)
It will only work on the 5800 or N97 as it requires the touchscreen.
All CBZ files should be stored on the memory card (E:) in a folder called "Comics"
Anyway, I hope you all enjoy. See the video below for instructions on use.
you can download the software directly from my server here (V1.2)
you can download the latest PyS60 runtimes here:
you can download a test CBZ file here (this file is a public domain CBZ)
Please give me feedback as always.
