Yesterday afternoon we released a new mobile page type: RSS. This will let you add an RSS feed page to your mobile site. The feed could come from inside your network or from outside, and you have an option to open links in a new window or not. We've done our best to make the feed look good, but some of the formatting will depend on what's included the feed. Ideally the links in the feed will be mobile friendly.
What's up next?
Right now we're working a mobile advertising solution and on adding Groups to mobile. We'll provide more information on each of those as our development progresses.

Way to go guys! I know you're working on Ad space and thats awesome but could you guys PLEASE look into adding support for GeoRSS and location based feeds. It should not be a huge undertaking to add HTML5 support for adding geolocated feeds. I'd be happy to help with testing and development.
thanks guys for the great work!
Great Work, but and about EVENT FEATURE????
A lot of people have community based on this feature.
ADS and mobile dont combine :)
Agreed. There's no rush for ads. Events should be a priority. That's something members will want to use on the go.
agree: EVENTS, please!
Agree !!! Events & groups first.
Interesting... it will pull up certain parts of the feed, but not others. For instance, we do a lot of audio podcasts on our site and the regular RSS feed will show the mp3 file (so people can listen to the podcast through iTunes or straight from the feed with most readers). However, using the RSS feed here all we get is a title, description, and a link to the actual desktop version of the blog post (which means they have to leave the mobile app to see it anyway).
Also, I don't know if there's any way on Ning to sort blog posts into an RSS feed (which would be tremendously helpful if we could have a feed with just blogposts by specific members of the site such as administrators), so I can't think of a reason to use this instead of simply using HTML and adding a link directly to the RSS feed (which automatically opens on most mobile devices and shows included files, thumbnails, etc)
For adding groups to mobile that you are working on will it include the list of groups, list of user's groups and each group main page with its description?
when are events coming? we need this for the mobile version as events is a core module on NIng!!!
yes, EVENTS, please!
Agree !!! Events & Groups please ! ;-)
