Hints for using this app for your own use

Do you want to adapt this app to follow some interesting feeds of your own? Check where some major adjustments should be made:

  • In /java/.../adapter/ the navigation menu is defined.
  • In /java/.../provider/ the feeds that are to be followed are defined and added to the database.
  • In /java/.../utils/ the text of the full articles is cut out of the website. For some websites this needs adjustments to get the cutting of the article right. Some special selections are made there for our use.
  • In /res/values/strings.xml you can translate all the text used in the app
  • In /res/drawable-xhdpi/ most of the icons are located. You can add or replace them by your own.
