Simple RSS reader for iPhone using PureMVC Standard for Objective-C

Posted on February 8, 2009

Few weeks ago Cliff Hall announced the release of PureMVC Objective-C Port by Brian Knorr. Brian also provided a very helpful demo called "Employee Admin".

To dive into the Objective-C port of PureMVC as quick as possible I have built a another demo. It's a pretty simple RSS reader for iPhone or iPod touch, which grabs a feed of a blog and shows the latest 10 entries in detail.

Brian Knorr, the project owner of the Objective-C port of PureMVC, did an awesome job! But the question is: Do I need a MVC framework such as PureMVC for developing an iPhone app? You don't! Because Objective-C based already on a MVC paradigma.

However, if you are new to Objective-C and you may have a strong ActionScript background using PureMVC, it might be a good choice to dive into iPhone development. And you will see, that the code architecture is like your home ;)


Any feedback?
