    Post [Release]-I-Phone RSS Application



    ~I-Phone / I-Pod Touch MPGH.NET RSS Reader

    What Is RSS?

    What does this app do?

    Currently, Not much, it is in the alpha stage of development, it has a few bugs and is far from being a full featured app (more explained below on both counts)

    This app currently allows you to view the updated RSS feed from mpgh.net. It also allows you to view a specific sections RSS as well.
    (more explained in the brief tutorial)

    I-Phone web App Vs. I-Phone Native App

    It used to be...I-phone native apps were the cream of the crop, but shortly after a group of developers released JS extensions for which will allow you to use ajax to hijack these controls and use them with a web application, so now we can have a web app that can control all the features a native app can.

    The other issue is, native apps can run without a internet connection, and again that is no longer the case, we can now run a web application with stored procedures and by reloading information and storing it in Lite Sql which will allow some (if not all depending on features) of the applications functionality.

    One major benefit of web apps is that I (or any developer) can bypass the need for the App Store (without having a jail broken I-phone) and also using a web app allows us developers to offer updates pretty much on the fly, no need to update, when the application has changes your App will update almost dynamically.

    Where/How can I get this application.

    This is not a download, You can grab this application by navigating to

    https://utilityupdates.com/mpgh/

    {Warning} This application is still in the earliest of the development stage, though it is functional, I still ask users are safe. Backup everything in I-tunes.

    after you navigate to the URL above from your device.

    Click the Plus symbol on the bottom of the browser to add the webapp to your homepage.



    Once you do this, it will automatically assign a Icon and a title. Click add.

    Now run your application for the first time, You will be greeted by a [Loading]Splash Screen



    When the application loads for the first time it will load the standard MPGH Feed.



    However I gave you the ability to change this by entering a different URL into the URl field, this way you can take advantage of other sections and/or new posts (check future ideas below)



    To access the standard RSS Feed set the MPGH feed url to
    (type without below spaces)

    Code:
    https:// www. mpgh. net/forum/external.php?type=RSS2
    To access New Posts , set the MPGH feed url to
    (type without below spaces)

    Code:
    http: //www. mpgh. net/forum/external.php?type=rss2&forumids1486834


    Updates:
    - None at the moment, everything is listed above.


    Bugs:
    I noted one so for.
    Once during some testing my device locked up , I had to turn it off and back on. I have not experienced the issue again, I believe it was do to Firmware 4 beta (it happened when it was adding it to the list of multi tasked items)

    Please Report any bugs you find


    Future Plans:

    - Attempt to add a SMS style with Post and Get to VM
    - Private Message Retrieval
    - Pull Down (Roller) for choosing a section instead of having to type in URL
    - Open to suggestions

    I have a mac and windows, but this is done in pure html, minimalistic jqeury, css, and I hijacked the extensions (accelerometer etc.) with ajax and some java scripts provided by the sdk.

    It loads the rss feed, you also have the option using

    forumsid=Id to grab a specific section

    This is a alpha program, I may be able to post to the admin portal using php or ajax and callback.

    So maybe something in the future, I like the idea.

    I don't have an Iphone, but lol RSS feed. +1

    Nextgen1 is a wizard!

    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. This is, I repeat, the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."
    - Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Ohh I don't have an iPhone or iTouch, so I thought maybe that was a shot at the actual app title bar or something :P

    looks pretty cool, nice work.
    you going to pay the 90 bucks to get to submit it to the app store?
    so, you didn’t use xcode to make this? you made it with html? If you are planning on sending it in to apple don’t you need to make it a native cocoa touch application?

    also, i’d love to see some cocoa apps from you, if you have made any.

    Because of the type of application, it's actually primarily php, but yes. HTML.

    I am to lazy to learn Objective C, it's just one more language. I already develop in Vb, vb.net , Some C#, html, Css, Some PhP, B.A.S.I.C , can't bother to learn another

    Also with some JS for the extensions, we still have full control over the device
    ~Notification
    ~Media
    ~GeoLocation
    ~Accelerometer
    ~Contact
    ~Camera
    ~etc

    EndRiT's right, mod tools would be sick.

    But this looks fantastic, excellent work...I'll be checking the app store.
