As you've might seen, I've added some features to PPCW.Net. This includes a RSS Newsfeed for the news junkies among yourselves as well as some minor feature updates of PPCW.Net Wireless (the online version of PPCW.Net for Pocket PCs and Smartphones).

RSS Newsfeed

Now you can add PPCW.Net to your favorite RSS Newsfeed reader like Freereader for your Desktop or PocketRSS for your Pocket PC 2002.

What is a RSS Newsfeed?

RSS is a Web content syndication format.

Its name is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication.

RSS is dialect of XML. All RSS files must conform to the XML 1.0 specification, as published on the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) website.

This lets you download the latest stories from PPCW.Net to your PC or Pocket PC and with this, you are always up to date. To read the full story, it will be opened on a separate browser window as the normal website.

However, the RSS Newsfeed can also be used to syndicate PPCW.Net headlines for your website. This is free and available for everybody. If you want to integrate the latest headlines, please be so kind to inform me!

PPCW.Net Wireless

If you haven't visited PPCW.Net wireless with your Pocket PC or Smartphone right now - you should do it! :D It gives you the full access to PPCW.Net as you know it from your PC, except posting comments and search which have to finalized.

However, know you can also navigate easier with your Smartphone (works on Windows Powered Smartphone only, no Pocket PC or Symbian Smartphones):

To jump back to the front page, just press and hold key [1] in the Explorer and you are back. It's the same like clicking on the PPCW.Net logo on top or using "Home" from the pull-down menu!

The other areas can be accessed with [2] to [6] like 2 = News, 3 = My Views, 4 = Reviews, 5 = PPCW.Net News and 6 = Archives.

This makes navigation on a Smartphone easy going! :-)

In addition you can also share a story-link you find interesting with a friend by E-Mail or even SMS. If the recipient E-Mail/SMS client is smart enough, he can open the URL directly from it and watch it on his mobile device as well!

The text is optimized not to be more then 160 characters which means it fits into one SMS message:

Hope you enjoy the improvements! More to come soon! :D

Cheers ~ Arne

Thanks for that... But what is the URL for the RSS feed?

@Mauricio Freitas: See the red button left... ;-)

Any reason why I'm getting the following error:

AmphetaDesk could not determine the format of http://.../

when I try to add your RSS feed to AmphetaDesk?

Syndirella doesn't see it as a valid feed.  Feedreader claims there are no items.

@Steve and David: Weird... 8o On Freereader and NewzCrawler http://.../ it works without any problems for me as well as with Headline Viewer. Syndirella I've tried and it didn't worked - why ever... AmphetaDesk I've tried right now and didn't worked as well...

Srange, I have no clue why it works with some readers and with others not!?
