I think I’ll make this update to KC’s art & technology short and sweet this morning. Not much has changed since the last update, mainly because I really haven’t found too much to add to the site. But, having said that, I’m working on a mobile app that will give readers a rss feed of this site. Hopefully there will be more, but for right now I’m starting small.
I haven’t ever made an app before, yeah, I’ve started probably about 10 or 12 in the past. For some reason I never seem to finish them. I’m not sure why, but it could be that I don’t use my phone for really anything. I’ve got a few games that I play from time to time, and there are at least a few occasions that I’ve needed it for navigation while I traveled, but I’m really not a phone person. I think that it’s been hard for me to understand why people use their phone like they do and why an app is warranted. I do understand, I just can’t identify with them. Nevertheless, I think it’s time that I at least try to get into the ‘app game’ so to speak.
The app is going to be focused on the blog posts and to do this I needed to call the site to get the updated entries. The only way I could figure out how to do this was to use an RSS feed. I’m not sure how well this will work in the long run, but I think it gives me at least a starting point.
In the meantime, if you’d like to take the new and improved RSS feed out for a test run, you’ll need some way to parse the code. Most people will use an extension on their browser (at least until the app is finished).
