Mobile Developer News (iOS, Android) written in Kotlin

Overview

This is a personal project for me to better keep up with mobile news. Instead of having to go to x million sites, I have the news sources all in one app.

Getting Started

Open the Android project file in Android Studio or Eclipse with Android Development Tools. Then clean, build and run on a device or emulator.

Prerequisites

Android Studio or Eclipse with Android Development Tools.

Building

  1. Open the project in Android Studio or Eclipse
  2. Clean and build the project
  3. Use the 'Play' (>) button to launch the app on a device or emulator

Installing & Deployment

  1. You can run the app in an Android emulator from Android Studio or
  2. You can connect a Developer Mode enabled Android device via USB cable to your computer and run the app on the device.

Usage

  1. When the app is started, you can select Android or iOS news.
  2. After selecting the mobile platform, you see a list of news sources. Press on the desired news source.
  3. Finally, you get a list of articles that the RSS source published. When you click on the article, it opens to display the content. NOTE: Since these are RSS feeds, sometimes you need to click on a link to see the full article. The link will open in the device default browser.

Contributers

Looking for contributers to help improve the app. A couple of ideas:

  • Add RSS feeds for additional platforms and cross-platform tools (e.g. Xamarin, Windows)
  • Load RSS feed JSON remotely from GitHub
  • Improve article viewer. Instead of an AlertDialog open an Activity full page.

Versioning
