SPIDERSS Android app combines browser, RSS reader, & social networking together
If you prefer convergence applications that takes away the hassle of juggling separate applications on your Android phone, then you may be interested in this thing called SPIDERSS. It's an Android app that combines a lot of popular applications into one – it's a Webkit-based browser, RSS reader, and allows for social networking elements to be used all on a single screen. The Tokyo-based jig.jp, known to be an avid mobile browser developer since 2003, claims that their “jig browser” is the world's first Java based browser that follows closely the experience you get on a computer thanks to its support for HTML 4.0.1/XHTML 1.1 and JavaScript 1.5 – it takes advantage of Android 1.5 or higher handsets with support for QVGA and VGA resolutions. Not only can you surf the web with the application, users can even check out their Facebook and read their RSS feeds at the bottom part of the screen in the “Application Deck.” Although some may view the browser as still needing some work, it just simplifies the user's experience without the need of having separate dedicated applications running simultaneously. Not only will it attempt to reduce frustration levels, but it happily combines some of the core elements that most people are accustomed to using nowadays.
