Portal to the Universe

This is clone of the 'Portal to the Universe' app for iPhone

The original application has been designed and developed by Víctor R. Ruiz (@vrruiz,, with contributions from Lars Holm Nielsen (ESO).

You can find the original source code here:

The application reads RSS feeds from the site. It stores the posts' summaries on the device, for offline reading. The feeds are:

featured news, which highlight stories from news sites 
featured blog posts
selected posts from the astronomy blogosphere
and featured podcasts 

Finally, the search feature uses the Google Custom Search Engine API.
