Based on the excellent feedback over at http://wpsk.uservoice.com, I’ve launched a new Windows Phone Starter Kit for RSS-based applications!  The kit, like the others is REALLY simple to use – just download the source code, change the settings.xml file to include the RSS feeds you want displayed, and run the application!

The Starter Kit can be downloaded directly from the MSDN Code Gallery at http://aka.ms/wpskrss

The Source Code is also available from my GitHub repository at https://github.com/ChrisKoenig/Windows-Phone-Starter-Kit-for-RSS. You can download the source package by clicking on the ZIP button, or use your favorite Git client to clone the source to a local repository.

As with all the other Starter Kits, we’re encouraging people to contriute back – if you see places for improvement, let us know via the issues list on GitHub, and make sure to contribute any fixes or additions back by sending me a Pull request.

  1. Chris,  The RSS Starter looked real interesting (and is).  However, it’s looking for   System.ServiceModel.Syndication
       on my system.  Where does Syndication for WP7 come from??

  2. Hi Chris – Outstanding! – Thank you it works great.I’d like to extend a bit, need your thoughts. I would like to let Users customize the experience a bit – choose from pre-loaded list of feeds, add their own feeds, change order, etc. almost like the Pulse wp7 app… Appreciate any pointers & Thanks again!
