Long DescriptionSabriya portrays life in Damascus in the 1920's. Central to the story is Sabriya's journey to self-knowledge, intertwined with the rise and eclipse of national and feminist awareness during her painful life. The national revolt is crushed by superior foreign power and Sabriya's personal emancipation is stifled by the traditional values of a patriarchal society. Written from the point of view of a young girl passionately committed to the nationalist cause but unable, because of her sex, to take an active part, it seethes with the frustrated energy of the reluctant bystander and vividly expresses the terror of civilians living in a city rocked nightly by explosions.

The website can do pretty much everything the web app could do. Some scanning/image uploading functions were nice in the app but almost everything else was driven by the website anyway. Keeping up on Android upgrades and Google policies was a pain and very few people were using the app anyway. So we have discontinued support for it.
