Ok, you decided to press the red button right? πŸ™‚

From all the 230+ responses which I got in the last survey, it seems you want 3 main app types, an RSS newsreader/Wordpress app, Business apps and Photo gallery apps.

And the most requested for features are social sharing, database connection, ability to change themes/designs on the fly…and so much more.

I asked and you have given… Much more than I asked for. Well I can’t complain πŸ™‚

So here are some more screenshots from the first app I decided to work on. It will be a Blog/Wordpress/RSS reader app with loads of social features.

 

complete-app-3

complete-app-1-1

complete-app-2-1

For now, here are some features I was thinking about adding to it.

Ability to change designs on the fly

The screenshot above uses the Bizapp template, I plan to bundle a couple more templates so you can switch back and forth.

Facebook/Twitter sharing

The app will be able to connect to the embedded Facebook/Twitter accounts on the phone and allow you to share articles.

This will also pull down the twitter/Facebook streams of any user you configure in the app via JSON mod display them.

Loading an RSS feed

This will show RSS feeds from WordPress blogs or any valid XML RSS feed.

 

What do you think? First off I need a name. What do I call this app?Β Any other ideas of what will be a good fit? Please leave a comment and let me know.

    Tope if you made a RSS/Worpress template, I WILL BUY IT as soon as it comes available. Period.

    This is great stuff, Tope. The premium membership is certainly the way to go, so glad I have it as this will be great to have anytime I need it.

      I don’t think this is going to be available with the Premium membership though.. You guys will still get the monthly templates as usual, this is just a one-off. But. of course, Premium members will get the best discount when it goes live.

    The name of Slurp comes to mind, but it might be too cute for your audience.

    Being that it is an App Template …

    The attributes of the template should be configurable via a simple JSON file. That will allow “remote configuration” of the App without having to re-compile and re-publish the app.

    If you want to discuss and brainstorm, toss me an email. πŸ™‚

    Why don’t you call it “Google Reader”? πŸ˜‰

    Hopefully this will be an app that would allow us to simply take the WordPress RSS url we wish and plug it into our own app? Is that the intent, Tope?

    Maybe instead of full app, just add that as a module or code snippet so that it could be dropped into any of the templates? Just an idea…

    Thank you Tope!!! Without you I dont know how I would make more advanced looking apps πŸ™‚

    Tope, Your template designs are a great start. It would be helpful if all templates incuded a fun lipsum core data source to visualize ui designs.

  9. Alun

    TweetBook comes to mind, but I suspect there’s already one of those out there.

    Agree with ForrestFixx, some lipsum text would be helpful.

    Keep up the good work Tope, always interested to see your designs.

    Very nice so far. Would be great to post updates to the two services as well!

    Look forward to seeing your final product!

    I’d like to know if you have any other resources I could use for my ‘RemindMe’ template? I need really customise it further…any documentation…be great ) Thanks!

    Will the app feature an offline sync too? I’ve always been puzzled with that option as its hard to implement.

    Keep up the good work.
