We are software engineers, open source enthusiasts, programmers, designers, geeks and simply love to make the life of others easier with ICTs. We are happy to announce our Android ICT4D News Application. ICT4D News combines 29 blogs and news sources (complete list on GitHub) around the topic of ICT4D and Digital Development. The goal is to offer an easy way to stay tuned and receive the latest ICT4D updates. All blogs and sources are combined into one handy list and provide offline reading capabilities. The blogs and sources can be deactivated to customize your reading. Please download it and do not hesitate to send us your feedback at news.app@ict4d.at

The latest version hit 1.1.0 and is solely for you, the ICT4D community, made by us, ICT4D.at. But we hope this will not stay this way, the application is Open Source and just waiting for you to reports bugs, discuss new features and contribute to the code base. So if you recently fell in love with Kotlin (as I did) and want to bring in your ideas, then don’t hesitate to contribute.

We also strongly believe in diversity and the benefits coming with it. We are proud of being an international team from 3 different continents (Africa, Asia and Europe) and 4 different countries: The core team consist of three members: Noah Alorwu, who is active in Ghana, Raja Saboor Ali is strongly committed in Pakistan and myself is involved from Austria. We also have support from Chloé Zimmermann a designer from France. We develop, work, share and take decisions equally.

    For those of us who are old school and still use RSS to read websites, or who don’t live in Android, will there be a RSS feed of these blogs, or a URL list so we can subscribe to them directly?

  2. Wayan Says:

    Oh silly me. You can delete that comment. I see the blogroll in the github documentation.

    Dear Wyan,

    exactly, we are also still quite old school and our app is based on RSS and WordPress JSON APIs. As you correctly mentioned, you can find the complete list here:

    Thank you for pointing this out, I will add this information to the blog post. If you think that a blog or another source is missing, then please let us know!

    All the best,
    Paul
