    My Wife runs a parenting website that has a fairly busy following through the site itself, FB, Twitter, FriendFeed etc, however, many of her members/followers use iPod Touches or iPhones.

    I did see a trailer for Apploop which seemed to do exactly what I wanted, but they have closed for business.

    Can anyone build an App from the feed that a user can download from the App Store for free?

    Thanks in advance

    I doubt that someone would be willing to build her an App for free. There are many RSS readers on the App Store already too.

    I don't mind paying for the development. I also don't want it to be just a standard rss reader either. Kinda needs to be specific to her site.

    Hello,

    While I understand that you are looking to build this app for free I am offering my services anyway. I am surely flexible on pay and I would exchange services if there is anything you are capable of that I am interested in.

    Thanks,
    Joshua Caputo

    Hi, I certainly don't mind paying for it

    I am looking for someone to build something like these guys do: http://www.phodder.com/pheeder

    Effectively, an app that pulls in an RSS feed but is totally branded as The Mummy's Club, nice and pink etc with a logo and reads the feed from her forum. Members can click the topic title and view a synopsis and if they like, to be able to click 'view full article' all from within the app. I would also like them to be able to forward the article to other people from their iPod/iPhone via their email.

    It would also need to be downloadable from the App Store for a small fee (0.59p?) of which I am more than happy for the developer to take all of it

    Is this possible?

    Thanks in advance
