News Feed – New free app

Hi Folks,

Palm just published News Feed – my latest app.

Actually, it is only partly my app. Palm wrote most of the code and I just tweaked it for release.

Nonetheless – it is a powerful and fully featured RSS news reader. It lets you download feeds and read them offline. It comes bundled with a selection of feeds, but you can easily add your own.

One user asked me in the Hobbyist forum whether I intend to charge for News Feed in future.

My plan at the moment is to keep it free and just incorporate any major changes that Palm include in the open source.

If there is lots of demand for more features, then I might decide to do more work on the app and start charging.

It’s the first time I have had to pay to publish a free app (palm charges $50 per app) – but I’m hoping that it will act as an advertisement for my other apps.

So please download News Feed, and please read the Hobbyist news feed, and try my other apps!

You can get News Feed here.
