Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Could I make a paid android app that teaches users about the UE4 documentation?

The documentation is already there and free, yet people still ignore checking it or dont know about it somehow. What you are trying to make is like making the tutorial for a tutorial. Don't get me wrong but people will ignore your app as well or just not buy it at all once they know the existence of a documentation. :\

You are welcome to make a free mobile app that complies with Epic's fan art/site policy (here). That requires the use be non-commercial and make clear that it is unofficial.

If you want to make a paid app, you can't use Epic's trademarks or copyrighted materials (which includes the documentation itself).

Well I don't always have an internet connection to look at the documentation, plus I don't think there is a pdf version of the documentation so far. And I've seen a couple of people asking for pdfs of the documentation so I'm thinking about making it into an app, But if I'm going to spend time on converting the whole documentation into an app I think a .99 cent app will be a sufficient convenience fee.

In that case i agree that it would be useful(still it's Epic's decision to give you permission). You need to change the question though since it is misleading. It made me think you want to make an app that teaches how to use the documentation.

it says about the documentation, which means concerning or in regard to
