I have an old, slow Android tablet which is of not much use for "interactive use". I'd like to hang it on the wall and use it as a web-enabled photoframe.
There are sites, where users post new artwork every few minutes, and the sites make the recent images available as RSS feed. So, theoretically, point your RSS reader to the site, and have new images displayed as they come?
Well, not quite. Most RSS readers display list of items, where you have to pick the newest to open it in full screen, and it won't refresh unless you go back to the list. Some show 'ticker' style cycle of recent articles, but you're lucky to see a thumbnail of the attached image, never mind displaying it full-screen. One to automatically display the image from newest article (or cycle through newest articles) - nope.
So, I'm looking for an RSS reader / photoframe crossover app:
- Grab RSS from user-specified RSS, auto-refresh for new articles.
- Load and display images from the articles, not just thumbnails but the images full-size, adapted to screen - either from the newest article, or cycle through a number of articles in the feed (or some other reasonable algorithm).
- Autorefresh with RSS updates
- Require no user interaction during operation, display no commercials, minimize amount of clutter, like interface elements etc - be an elegant photoframe app.
Paid apps are acceptable. If you know apps that use different kinds of feeds (ATOM, etc) or generally other way of finding new images, that would be welcome too.
