Reading the XDA blog is something I do regularly (since I am suppose to be writing for it), and I just found a little something that you might be interested in. This new development originates from the forums, where members are working hard at bringing the RSS software to your home screen.
The project seems to have quite a bit of things going for it, but sadly I cannot confirm due to XDA being down for maintenance.
Here is what the blog post included:
The plan is for this project will be open as possible and allow new developers to have a go, I would like to make this accessible as possible.
There is plenty which can be done, by all ranges of skill levels so have a look through and give things a try and ask some questions if you get stuck. The aim initially is to develop a fully working RSS Tab, which everyone can add and contribute to then, using the same methods, many other tabs can be created.
Other than that, you will have to wait till XDA is back up. When it returns the thread will have all the information you need.
