Greetings, I am developing an app that includes a news reader from a rss feed, I would like to know if you know any example that works on the BlackBerry Playbook.

Thanks a lot!

Re: RSS Reader on BlackBerry Playbook

Can you be more specific in what you are looking for:

 

  • Full source code of a working application to re-use?
  • How to read and parse an RSS feed?
  • Techniques for displaying content in an app?

You're right, I tried a few days ago with that API and it has worked very well.
