I am really happy to release my first iPhone application source. This is a simple RSS reader application and it loads the latest news from BBC.

While doing this application I got to learn and to get a rough idea bout the following

  • How basic iPhone application works
  • View & view controllers
  • Tableviews, Tableview Datasource & Tableview Delegate
  • Navigation controller
  • Threading
  • XML parser etc

.
To make this application I have broken my head reading lot of samples and watching video tutorials. I am very sure the application will have lot of issues and mistakes. If anyone feels so please give me a comment So I have a chance to correct myself. So far I find it really interesting and challenging 🙂

Application Main View : This view loads the RSS parser as a thread, this will download the RSS and parse it. Once the thread is completed it loads the RSS item into a UITableView.

News detail View : Based on what news is selected it loads the detailed news view.

Alert View: Gives you a choice if you want to open the RSS item in safari browser.

Please forgive me for not putting the complete explanation about the application. I am sure it is pretty simple to figure it out.
