Now that we are well on our way to being able to do offline blogging from Pocket PCs, (way to go Bryce!) my next wish is an offline RSS news aggregator for Pocket PCs. One of the features of Radio Userland is that it downloads RSS newsfeeds to my PC, and provides me a way to browse them in what is called the News Aggregator. What I would like to be able to do is synchronize those feeds down to my Pocket PC, so that I could read through them at my leisure.
Without doing a lot of snooping around, I figure that the RSS feeds are stored in an XML file somewhere on my PC. So, I would think that all I would need is a way to get that file down to the Pocket PC, and then have an app that is capable of opening that file and displaying it's contents. The app should be able to work with Internet Explorer on the Pocket PC so that if I tap a link it would try to open the page, in case I am online.
Bonus points would be integration with Pocket Blog so that I could post blog entries from the RSS feeds in the same manner as Radio Userland. More extra points would be to provide the ability for the Pocket PC to directly retrieve RSS feeds if the Pocket PC has an internet connection.
So, what do you think Bryce? Can it be done?
