I just love this app! Is there any way to make it one story wide instead of two? I tried with storyboard but it didn’t work.

In the Home.swift check this code:
    // Resize post cells accordingly to the Device used
    if UIDevice.currentDevice().userInterfaceIdiom == UIUserInterfaceIdiom.Phone {
        // iPhone
        cellSize = CGSizeMake(view.frame.size.width/2, 160)
    } else  {
        // iPad
        cellSize = CGSizeMake(view.frame.size.width/3, 160)
You have to edit it to make its width = the device screen, or whatever you want.

Rockstar! And if I want Journal name to be “author” what do I do. On a side note I got just the “donate” link I emailed you about to leave your mini browser and open in safari – I changed the configs.swift so anyone can just add a link to that I’m happy to send the code if you want.

Sorry, your question is not clear… anyway we’re super busy with urgent works so we aren’t currently available for customization jobs, sorry.

I need to create an RSS reader app like the NY Times/TMZ IOS app for my blog site. Can I purchase this and set it up for my blog? I have little programming experience. I do have an apple developer account. I purchased the Radioo – iOS 8/9 Universal Multi-Radio Stations App Template (Swift) (http://codecanyon.net/item/radioo-ios-89-universal-multiradio-stations-app-template-swift/13386723?s_rank=26.). The project had simple to follow instructions that I was able to follow to setup and post an app. Is this the same way?

No, sorry, we’re only iOS developers.

If you can recommend an android version I will be greatful.

We can’t build Android apps, nor we know who can does that for our apps.

How would I disable iAd from this app? as I only want admob.

and that’s the only way to load websites, into a WebView

no I mean to say, can’t be only news content only? not the whole website in webview.


• Removed iAd banners since they will be discontinued by Apple on June 2016, left AdMob banners
• Updated HUD View in Configs.swift

Will this work with partial RSS feeds? can app automatically convert it to full RSS ?

Hi, the app needs full RSS feeds, like the ones from new york times, BBC, etc.

We’re going on vacation for the whole month of August 2016.
We are not available for freelance works, nor we can assure to reply to comments/messages promptly.
Happy summer!

Hi, are you planning to update this to swift 3? Is the code commented?

Yes, the code is commented and we’ll update all our swift apps to XCode 8 and Swift 3/iOS 10 when a stable, official version of XCode 8 will be available, not it’s beta and full of bugs, plus you can’t use XCode 8 to submit apps to the App Store yet.

Well I am learning swift and I want a good sample good to see how RSS is build, is this good for me to learn from? Btw do I have acces to the update when you will update it?

yes, this app parses RSS links and you can learn the code to make it happen from this app.
Yes, you’ll get notified by email when updates are available. Cheers!

i want push notification with it pls contact me for full requirements… reelmark@hotmail.com

Just emailed you. Cheers!

Hi, any updates on having a Swift 3 version?

we’ve updated this app to Swift 3 | Xcode 8 a month ago, please check the change log in the app description ;)

Hi I am using Xcode 7.3 and and swift 2. Is there any way to run this project in this environment?

No, sorry, we always update our apps, so you need Xcode 8.1

Thanks for your quick response. Would you please give me the older version of this project which is compatible with Xcode 7.3.

sorry, we don’t own it anymore, apps must be updated and we do that all the times.

hi does it support RSS of RTL language texts?

Is there an android version?

Apple have rejected this app after submission by saying that “Your app contains content or features that may infringe on rights owned by news and media outlets such as, BBC, etc.”

We’re sorry, maybe it’s a new rule from Apple, we are not aware of it, or maybe you’ve got a bad reviewer (it happens a lot lately), so just reply to that reviewer and ask him what you should do in this case.
Alternatively, you may wait for a couple of days and submit a new binary, it may get approved, because the reviewer will be another one.

They have shown me a way by saying that “Alternatively, please make necessary changes to your application so that it does not infringe the rights of a third party. For example, before accessing the news articles;

- include links to third-party news articles that launch in a web browser outside of the application or - require the user to configure third-party RSS feeds/sources.”

Does it mean that when you tap on a news, it should open the link to Safari, not within the mini browser in the app?
If that’s yes you may give it a try, just replace the ‘collectionView-didSelectItem() method in Home.swift with this code:
func collectionView(_ collectionView: UICollectionView, didSelectItemAt indexPath: IndexPath) {
    let cell = collectionView.cellForItem(at: indexPath) as! PostCell

    let post = postsArray[(indexPath as NSIndexPath).row] as Post

    let adVC = storyboard?.instantiateViewController(withIdentifier: "ArticleDetails") as! ArticleDetails

    // Get all strings to be passed to the next controller
    adVC.urlString = post.pPostLink
    adVC.postTitle = post.pPostTitle
    adVC.journalName = cell.journalLabel.text!
    adVC.mediaURL = post.pMediaURL

    adVC.postObj = post

    let aURL = URL(string: post.pPostLink)

    // navigationController?.pushViewController(adVC, animated: true)


So the app will open all links to Safari, if that’s what they want, which is ridiculous in our opinion, but what can we do against Apple reviewers? :(
The good thing is that from iOS 8 you have the top-left button to go back to your app without pressing the home button, so users will be able to go back to Feedews by tapping such button
