RSSReader Version 2.0 with UITabBarController

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˜‰

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.

Auto Increment Build Number & Date in XCode iPhone Project

While developing application we keep sharing the builds with others. It is very difficult to find out which version they are using and the date it was build. To overcome this I was searching for methods that can used to auto increment build numbers and set the application build date. I found this article really useful.

Incrementing Build Numbers in Xcode

To that script I made few changes to suit my needs.

Please make sure you have added two variables “CFBuildNumber” and “CFBuildDate” in Project-Info.plist

You can access the version information using the following code

Hope this helps πŸ˜‰

iPhone RSS Reader Application with source code

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 πŸ™‚

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.
