Couple of months back I released an open source RSS Reader app for iPhone on GitHub. Most of the people who downloaded the source requested for an updated version using UITabBarController.

Today I am releasing version 2.0 with the following changes

  • Updated the views to use UITabBarController
  • Loads rss subscription from plist file
  • More fun to learn πŸ˜‰

UIScreen Notifications for connecting external display in iOS

UIScreen class has three main notifications which gets triggered when a new screen (external display) is attached to the device.

UIScreenDidConnectNotification

This notification is posted when a new screen is connected to the device. The object of the notification is the UIScreen object representing the new screen. There is no userInfo dictionary. Connection notifications are not sent for screens that are already present when the application is launched. The application can instead use the screens method to get the current set of screens at launch time.

UIScreenDidDisconnectNotification

This notification is posted when a screen is disconnected from the device. The object of the notification is the UIScreen object that represented the now disconnected screen. There is no userInfo dictionary.

UIScreenModeDidChangeNotification

This notification is posted when the current mode of a screen changes. The object of the notification is the UIScreen object whose currentMode property changed. There is no userInfo dictionary. Clients can use this notification to detect changes in the screen resolution.

Simple code to listen to the notification

iPhone RSS Reader with source code

Last week I had prepared simple RSSReader application for demoing at Arabnet Shift Digital Summit. Since there was not much time to really explain I had to cut short my presentation with a very basic application demo. I promised to few programmers at Arabnet that I will release the source code for this application on my blog.

Unlike my previous version of RSSReader this version is much cleaner and simple to understand. Removed lots of unwanted methods and made it as simple as possible to understand. When I released the last RSSReader code I received lots of emails asking for updates and some people wanted to fix and update few things to it. To enable all this I am releasing this source code at gitHub.
