Seems to work ok on my HTC desire S and Inge's Samsung Galaxy S II.
However, I don't understand how to point it to my own data. I can't use
the normal play url for Xerte Toolkits, I can understand that. The RSS
feed seems to do something, but I can't understand what. It shows the
expected name of the rlo, but when I choose it, it will show YOUR demo

The app has been built with Xerte 3.0, and I’ll put the source code up at some point. There is obviously more work to do with supporting the other page types, but I do wonder how many it is sensible to attempt, anyway, there’s a few to be getting on with.
