Do you have a blog? Do you want to be able to reach more people in a more advanced way but don't have the code writing ability to create your own Android app? No worries... Feed.nu does all the hard work for you.Feed.nu is a website/service designed to make it easy for anyone to get their blog onto Android phones with your very own Android app.
Once you are registered and input your blogs RSS information, the web server takes your feed and imports it into a very easy to use WordPress based, CMS (Content Management System), where you can edit your posts as well as many of the settings within your app.
You have a lot of freedom with the way your app looks, write your own text for the intro and about sections, and a whole lot more depending on how detailed you want to get or feel comfortable with.
Here are some of the benefits of the Feed.nu service:
- Custom icons, headers and other graphics. They even give you access to a great Photoshop template file, to make it easier to create the images in the right sizes and format.
- Within the app, your readers can turn on/off automatic updating, change update time intervals, and whether to show or hide read and new items.
- When the app updates your feed (either automatically or by your reader clicking the sync button) they get notification bar alerts like any other advanced app does.
- Easy to use Adsense integration, for those who want to get a bit of ad revenue from their app.
Oh... and I almost forgot, it's free.
It really can't be any easier. After registering with Google to develop apps (costs $US25 to be a developer) you can have your app in the Android app store in just a few minutes for anyone to download.
