Slashdot RSS Monitor for Android Mobile (Open Source)

So I was tasked with writing an open source Android application for mobile and decided to write a Slashdot RSS monitor to keep updated with the latest from Slashdot. The app is in the Android marketplace and the complete source code and video tutorials are available (Just hit the info button on the application). So far no bugs and it has 5/5 star rating. Size = 768 kb which includes 450 kb of graphics so if you want a leaner app, you can take the source and pare it down yourself. Open license

Nice work. Don't have and Android phone (nor plan to), but this is the kind of thing Slashdot is for, so kudos!
