Description

SI News uses RSS Feeds to populate the Daily Egyptian and Saluki Times stories right on your Android device! This application also features a custom SIU interface. In addition, there is a pull to refresh mechanism that will ensure you never miss any of the upcoming stories from any of these news sources. The interface shows the title, date, and a brief description of each of the stories, but the user can click any of these stories and be taken to the story's website to view the entire article.

Benefits

This application will ensure that no one misses a breaking news story from either the Daily Egyptian or the Saluki Times. In addition, this application will lower the paper trail of the newspapers by having the articles shown digitally.

Business Model

This application is currently ad-supported for extra revenue. It will be on the Android store very soon so please download and give feedback on that page!
