1 Winnipeg News Android App on Thu May 10, 2012 11:30 pm

Hi folks,

I've created a free Winnipeg News app for Android phones. The app allows you to use your phone to read breaking Winnipeg news from a variety of local news sources.

You can download it from the Google Play Marketplace.

Hopefully this post isn't considered spam. The app is free and is also ad-free. I built it to learn more about mobile phone programming, and because I wanted to use the app myself. I'm happy to give it away to my fellow Winnipeggers.

If you have an Android smartphone, please check it out. If you have any suggestions or bugs to report use the email address on the app page (or tweet @stungeye).

So far the app pulls in news from CBC News Manitoba, ChrisD, The City of Winnipeg, CJOB Radio, CTV News, the Winnipeg Free Press, and the Winnipeg Sun. I will be adding more news sources and new features over time.

Kyle

p.s. For the programmers: I built the app using HTML5 and Phonegap. I've been documenting my mobile coding adventures on my blog.

Good luck with your app. Will Blackberry app be available?

Thanks. Building the app using Phonegap means that I should be able to convert it to a Blackberry app. It would only work on new BBs with touchscreens.

I'll let you know if I go forward with this. Smile

I wonder if this app ever got converted to BlackBerry...

Or if BlackBerry is even relevant anymore ;-)

I think the response to the new blackberry has been pretty good. Don't know though, if the app exists for it.
