Hi guys,
Back at the conference, I talked to Cloph about the file management in
LibreOffice Viewer for Android. Right now, the user is presented with the
system's entire directory structure and it's up to her/him to find the
right ODT files. This flies in the face of the mobile pattern of
abstracting the file system structure from the user [1] and makes it hard
for people to find their files (as they're generally not accustomed to the
directory structure).

Cloph said that, if the design team agrees, he's willing to change it.

Can we reach an agreement that LibreOffice Viewer should leave file
management to dedicated file managers and show documents it can open up

(The Google Docs apps, Microsoft's Office apps, WPS Office all use this
document management model. Except for LibreOffice and dedicated file
managers, I can't think of a mobile productivity app that doesn't.)
