WHHWapp version 1 - FreeThis app is a simple app that allows a user to view the 10 most recent posts from the blog feed. It gives you just the first 200 characters of the post and title and the link to the post. You load the feed from the press of a button. The app also has another button that opens the blog up in the web browser of their choice. You can close the application by just shaking the phone. I like to use the taskmanager and Advance Task Killer to close apps when I am done with them.
The app was created using the Google App Inventor and the Google App Engine to parse the RSS feed using Python,. I want to extend the app by adding thumbnail images from the post in the feed and live hyperlinks for each post that takes you to the full blog post in the blog. I also would like to give the user the ability to end the app from the interface.
You can either download the program by e-mailing me or asking for it in the comments below or use a QR reader like BeeTagg to quickly download the app to your phone or tablet.
