Several of my friends have launched iPhone apps recently. (I am lookin’ at you, Brian Solis, Chris Brogan, Tamar Weinberg and C.C. Chapman.) This is getting easier and easier to do, thanks to emergent services like Mobile Roadie and Motherapp.
But I parleyed with C.C. about it, and read his post carefully. His point is not lost on me: RSS is a tool of the elite; most folks surf their Bookmarks rather than use an RSS Reader.
Meanwhile, apps are becoming ubiquitous — not just on iPods, iPhones (and upcoming iPads), but via the Android Store, etc.
So why not create a single-serving RSS feed, in app form, which offers the further benefits of providing additional content (podcasts, etc.) in one place?
I get it.
I’m just not ready to do it.
