No - looks like it's 2.2+ only and my HTC is 2.1
Will have a look tomorrow whether I can upgrade it but the normal route is
saying no updates available :-(

Hi Julian
sounds great and was keen to try this but I'm getting the following error
after downloading when trying to install the app:
Parse Error
There is a problem parsing the package.
Any ideas? Are there Android version requirements? I'm trying with a HTC
The app appears to be 1.06MB

I've got an android app that consumes toolkits content: all the text pages,
and all the navigators so far. You can subscribe either to the RSS feed of a
folder, or to a learning object itself.

If you've got an android phone, you can install the (beta) application from

Thoughts most welcome.

On the home screen you can subscribe to content from a toolkits
installation, either a folder's RSS feed, or a learning object's xml (via
the xml link in the xml sharing tab on properties). The app has been built
with Xerte 3.0, and I'll put the source code up at some point. There is
obviously more work to do with supporting the other page types, but I do
wonder how many it is sensible to attempt, anyway, there's a few to be
getting on with.

Next steps is to package it for iPhone, but it's not as easy as the Android
route. I think we can also do Blackberry.
