    Hi,

    Since I'm a huge fan of both 2Day and Quick News, I was thinking how nice it would be to see these two great apps combined. Showing the latest RSS based news items on the Today screen is something that already exists for the Windows Mobile platform and I think this is a great way of staying informed on the go. Windows Mobile users use their Today screen as the primary app for keeping their lives organized, and 2Day by Shimon already does a splendid job mimicking that functionality on our beloved Treo's. The one thing I'm missing in 2Day is being able to read the latest hot news.
    I know there's already a 2Day plugin called GetNews by Sivil (who developed some other very nice 2Day plugins), but this is only for Yahoo and really US centric (no flame intended). That's why I'd like to see some level of integration with Quick News, so you're able to choose your own rss news stories in 2Day.
    If you'd also like to see this functionality, please let Shimon know in this thread and the Stand Alone/Quick News guys in this thread.

    Thanks for your support!

    P.S. If any other developers reading here have a great plugin idea for 2Day: I think Shimon is definitely very interested in hearing this. I think he has a API available for this type of integration.

    Unless Stand Alone or ShSh buys the other company you won't see QuickNews plugins for 2day. But I can see ShSh developing an RSS feed plugin that works just like QuickNews. If 2day had something like that I'd buy it.

    We'll shoot them an email and see what they've got to say. I'm not familiar with 2Day, but it sounds like they've got a framework for this sort of thing, and we've also got an API set for pulling out RSS data.

    w00t! Thanks so much Ben! _O_ That would be so awesome! Can't wait to see this happening.

    P.S. And you should really check out Shimon's apps! Really good apps for any Treo user: www.shsh.com (and no, I'm not being paid for this. I just *really* like his applications, as I'm also really happy with Quick News)

    Hi,

    I am happy to annouce that after a fast cooperation development with the guys from StandAlone, I now have a working beta of a plugin for Quick News.

    Anyone interested in testing this out - get it at www.shsh.com/beta
    Note: you need the latest version of Quick News (beta 1.23au or 1.24 when released).

    Thanks !

    This is terrific, thanks!

    One enhancement request: Is is possible to display the titles of actual RSS feed articles, rather than just indicating which feeds have been updated? Or is this asking waaaaay too much?

    Hi,

    Afraid this is not something the Quick News interface allows me (unless I am mistaken).

    Shimon and Ben,

    THANKS so much!
    I was about to ask the same question as Chris. I would be nicer to have the actual titles, but if it can't be done that's fine. If there's a way, I'd also like to ask if the titles can be made scrollable (so you're able to read the whole title instead of a cutoff) and if I don't ask to much I'd like to see a configuration option for the number of titles on the 2day screen.

    I'm very happy with the outcome of my request and will recommend both titles even more aggressively than I already did

    After installation, this version of the plugin gave me instant resets whenever I launched 2day. I had to remove it and revert to the older version.

    Wow! This version is excellent! Thank you so much for your hard work

    I have only one request left to make this the best integrated plugin (and this could be very useful for 4Cast plugin too): could you please try to make the plugin line scrolling from left to right (like a marquee). This way you're able to skim the headlines on the 2Day screen itself without the extra tap for the plugin screen.

    Can I donate some money for all the extra effort that went into this project? Or will it be a seperate product? (for which I'm obviously very happy to pay!)

    One last niggle
    I have 'Unread only' checked: is there a way to dynamically hide feeds with no unread articles in the top part of the Quick News plugin? No biggie, more a nice to have.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your kind words.

    Scrolling display is on my list for future versions, but would require some work.

    This plugin is meant to be free, as a mean to increase sales of 2day (and quick news). Thanks !

    Hi all,

    Just posted a newer version - 1.16 b01 - at www.shsh.com/beta

    Should work better with the new beta of Quick News (1.23ax)

    Also has some GUI improvments (navigating through feeds/articles) - read help on main screen carefully...

    Thanks !
