Does HearThis Android need HearThis Desktop?

Do I understand that HearThis Android needs HearThis Desktop? Is there any way to run HearThis Android without HearThis Desktop?



HT Android is currently dependent on HT Desktop to get its project files.
Also, HT Desktop is needed to “assemble” the recordings into joined audio files to publish in various formats for different target devices. (Of course, you could do this step by some other means with third-party tools.)
It’s possible that at some point (perhaps as an outgrowth of the “Paranext” work) that HT Android could obtain direct access to the Paratext data files via the Send/Receive server or a text release bundle from the DBL.

Thank you. This is helpful info.
