RSS Feature

Description

The RSS Feed feature allows you to sync your RSS feed directly into the app. RSS feeds are a common and popular form of displaying news and information. RSS feeds load a web page that constantly updates within the app without any manual changes on your end.

 

Updated with current news, links to articles, special offers, and endless array of useful info, your RSS feed can prove incredibly useful for users, who will check multiple times a day for new content.

 

Available on:

  • iOS
  • Android
  • HTML5

Great for these industries:

  • Public figure
  • Newspapers/news media
  • Schools

Monetization ideas:

  • Sell space in the app for other businesses to feature their blog posts. 
  • Allow other businesses to include their updates in your RSS feed.

Content

Here you can rename the feature, add a feed, and arrange your posts.

 

 

1. Under Screen Info, change your Screen/Feature Name or leave as-is. This is the name that will appear in the app's feature menu (e.g. "Our Blog as" opposed to "RSS Feed").

 

2. Under Settings, check the box to enable specific options.

  • Displaying your RSS Feed: Select if you would like your posts to be arranged in Ascending or Descendingorder. Please note that this will arrange based on the publish date. 

3. Under RSS Feed URL, you can add your URL. 

  • RSS Feed: Add your RSS feed URL here. 
  • Thumbnail Image: Upload a thumbnail image (140x140px in PNG format) for this feed. 
RSS link locations look like this and can be found in most blog-type websites.


Most RSS URLs will contain “rss” within the URL. Also, it is common for RSS URLs to begin with “feeds.” or have “.xml” at the end. Here are some examples of what a RSS Feed page might look like.






4. Back in the dashboard, paste the URL into the RSS URL field and click Save at the top right.
