Betreff: GSOC Android App LibreOffice Viewer

i am new to LibreOffice and i came here over GSOC. My name is Mirko and i
love android-developing. Sadly i couldn't find the LibreOffice Viewer
mentioned at GSOC. I really would like to improve the android app and
getting it out of the beta status.
The last years while studying i worked for several startup companies but
never for an open source project. Therefore many things here are new to me
but interesting, too.

My suggestions to improve the app ( and hopefully my work):

Better (working) context menu. The search-item lacks function. Opened files
need context-fitting menus. As an example:

- printing
- searching words in the file
- jump to page

Basic operations in the files, e.g. scrolling through pages(with 1 finger)
sometimes zoom hardly into the current page.
Actually there are hundred of things to do in the app.
