As a reader familiar with ZIM files or with a vested interest in using the Wikipedia offline, I want to be able to enable the feature in my Wikipedia app so I can do my online and offline reading in one place.
Or conversely, 'As a reader uninterested in accessing large-files offline, I want to continue using the Wikipedia app without being distracted by the noise of seeing an unused like the Offline Library so prominently"
Create a Setting in the app to give enable the Offline Library feature.
When enabled, the 'Offline Library' menu item becomes visible in the feed overflow.
|Initially no 'Offline library' in overflow||Settings with feature enabled||Overflow opened with Offline Library menu item|
Notes on design:
- Settings screen - update the header section from "Storage and syncing" to "Syncing and offline reading"
- Proposed new setting text:
- Title = Enable “Offline Library”
- Caption = Access Wikipedia article packs (shown as ‘ZIM’ files) that have been downloaded to the device for reading when you’re offline. Find out more <-- this links to an external web page with more info about the feature
- Open Wikipedia app where there is initially *no* reference to the Offline Library in the Explore feed or in the overflow menu.
- Go to the app's Settings and toggle on the "Offline Library" feature
- Give permissions for the app to view files in the device in the dialog that appears (if user says no, the toggle in step 1 will be turned off, since the Offline feature does not work if permission is denied)
- Return to the Explore feed where the overflow menu should now have the "Offline Library" menu option visible.
- Tap on the Offline Library menu item and check that a read-only version of the 'Offline Library' appears.
- Return to Settings and toggle off the "Offline Library" feature. Confirm that the menu option should once again be hidden.
