MobileSheets on E-Ink-Display
#24
I have tried it on the Onyx N96ML with 9.7 inch e-ink display. This version has stylus only and backlight. It also exists in a version with touch+backlight and touch+stylus (but no backlight). i suspect that the current sw in the MAX device (13-3 inch display) is fairly the same. The device comes with a build in PDF reader with annotation.

MSP works out of the box (or rather when you install it via play store), but there are some catches. I have listed some of them here just from the top of my head.

The coloring scheme for MSP could be better. Some things (like the OK button) is very hard to see, some are impossible to see (like if you choose pen type (square/round/etc).  

Annotation works, but is rather slow compared to the build in pdf-annotation program in the device. I have only tried it with a stylus and it does require some getting-used-to time. At least compared to the build in pdf annotation program that works like a charm.   

Page turning time is not really an issue. It takes about 0.5-1.0  seconds to turn a page (which is the same as the build in PDF reader/annotator) . There is an option in the device to disable page refresh on a page turn which makes it really fast (< 0.2 second) but it also makes the page progressively harder and harder to read, because some of the ink dots are "hanging". 

The device has two hw page turn keys which can be used in the build in editor to turn-pages. These do not work in MSP. Pressing them will instead turn the volume up/down. 
As android does not native support HW page turn keys, I strongly suspect that the keys actually ARE volume keys, but that the device's build in SW uses them as page turn. Maybe MSP could support volumne as page turn or custom page turn (HW) key? Not sure if it would be something many persons would need though, but a scenario could be using your headset volumne keys as page turn ?

Zoom is not supported at all on the device as this requires pinch-zoom. My device use stylus only. Maybe a +/- zoom box could be added?
