 +====== FAQ ======
  
 +Instead of Answering questions individually I have created an "FAQ" that I ask that you look at.
 +
 +
 +**Q) What application language is preferred - Adobe AIR, HTML5/CSS, xml or java.**
 +
 +//A) The possibilities are multiple I guess, I must however confess that I love the idea suggested of doing the application in HTML5, as it opens up for using the same code universally across phones as well as touchpads/tablets and other computing devices.//
 +
 +
 +**Q) Will all these configuration files, like chpxx.txt, display.txt, screendimension.txt be will be set by us itself before creating the .apk files or do you wan the users to be able to modify these files after its been deployed on a phone.**
 +
 +//A) I believe it should be possible to change and tweek configurations so I would say that it should be possible to alter these files or equivalent on the phone after install.//
 +
 +
 +**Q) Once an apk file has been deployed on a phone with a given set of images, and sounds, any future additions to the chapters or library would be done via an product update or will there be any other way to do that?**
 +
 +//A) The idea is that the application and/or people should be able to download new dictionaries, new images etc. to their phone from the globability.org website on an ongoing basis, like you saw explained for the splash.txt file on the wiki.//
 +
 +
 +**Q) I had a quick read through your wiki page and found that you require SVG image support. Is this a total necessity? This is not natively supported by Android and as such we'd need to either rewrite an SVG library for use in Android or find an existing port and hope that it works/debug it.**
 +
 +//A) Well I would certainly prefer SVG as this fits best with a future proof standard with built in possibilities. If SVG support excludes speedy delivery of the application I might consider foregoing the requirement//
 +
 +
 +**Q) What is budget for this application ?**
 +
 +//A) A very good question indeed, while I've set it in the 100 US$+ category it does not mean I have the means to splash out completely. I am a private person doing this in order to first and foremost bring new software to The Global Ability Initiative which I've tried to promote for a number of years as I believe the right to communication is one that people should not be without no matter their situation. One thing that speaks for a fair bid by you is as you can see, the fact that you will retain the rights to use the code yourself as long as it does not preclude me from utilizing the code otherwise, so in essence you can still profit further from the work you do in the future.//
 +
 +
 +**Q) About the ExpertRating Requirement: Google Android Programming Test - Is it a requirement ?**
 +
 +//A) Yes, I request this in order to be sure bidders have a fundamental knowledge about Android as I have tried to post a similar project on another "virtual workers" forum, with very bad results wasting months of my time and tying up resources time wise and mentally, I do not wish to see that experience repeated. Second of all the test is free for you as a bidder so I ask only the investment of time to prove that you are up to the task. Also this can benefit you in the future when bidding on other projects as employers can determine up front that you have what it takes. Hope that is not too much to ask.//
