I read the Times of India almost every morning. I like to consume the news and the rest of the “masala” with my “Cup’O Joe”. However, people running the newspaper’s electronic version seem to have forgotten that they are in the business of delivering news and not advertisements (…purely from a consumer point of view). I am aware there are ads everywhere, but nytimes.com, wsj.com, they do it “unobtrusively”.
Why don’t you try, TOI?
Come on guys….I just woke up! Gimme a break!
Well, I am guessing “TOI” won’t, so I’ve taken matters in my own hand. I built an Adobe AIR application that leaves all this junk behind and gets to the meat of the matter.
I get the available RSS from http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/rss.cms and I load it in the dropdown box
Selecting the channel will give you a list of news articles. I just get the appropriate RSS feed from TOI, parse it and show you the description and link.
Then clicking on the story will change the screen over to let you read the news.
If you’d like to get the source (maybe you have another newspaper in mind?) send me an email or post a comment here. I will gladly oblige.
You will be able to get the file from from http://www.box.net/shared/izb2q93r4x or select it from the widget below.
