It would be quite difficult to get Awasu to run on a PDA - the environment is just too different from that of a PC. What I was hoping for was to get Awasu to work *together* with a PDA really well. Also, I'm looking for ideas on what sort of features PDA users would like to see.
I'm told that AvantGo (http://www.avantgo.com
) is far and away the most popular PDA service but also that Awasu together with Plucker (http://www.plkr.org
) is much better (since AvantGo is a proprietary service but RSS is open).
I've already done a bit of work in this area. The way it works so far is like this:
1) Generate a report that contains links for items that you have not yet read.
2) Point Plucker to the report and tell it to follow the links and download the content onto your PDA.
3) You go away and read the content while offline. The PDA records which items you have read.
4) When you come back to your PC, Awasu gets the list of read items and updates each channel, marking the relevant items as read.
Only step (3) is missing. I don't have a PDA, don't have any experience programming the things nor do I have time
So what I'm looking for is either someone who can whip up a little app that runs on the PDA and records which URL's you have visited (trivial) or knows of an existing app that we can use. If we can fill in this missing step, we would have a pretty powerful alternative to AvantGo.
Also, if you can think of any other features that you would like to see in Awasu to make it work better with a PDA, I'm very open to suggestions.
