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
- 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.
