Making a Facebook type app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys... i wanted to know would it be hard to make a FACEBOOK type application? There are tons of forums i visit and like to use... I wanted to make a Application for my Mobile phone to simply Login and show me info like topics and Messages and such...

    Most the forums i visit are VBULLETIN type and i wanted to know what are some things i should look into to make this program.. Some basic goals:


    1. Login
    2. Get list of Forums, Topics
    3. Get Messages in a Topic
    4. Get PMs, and such...

    Should i simply use a web browser on the form and have it hiding and parse the data? or is there a way to make things faster by not loading images in browser or something?

  • Hi,

    You can simply show the list of the links on the first form and link to the relevant web application from browser control. Most of the sites has mobile versions now a days. So it renders a simple page, so you need not to worry about images also. Using browser control makes your application development faster too.

    Please let me know my understanding is wrong regarding your query.
