When it's a web app, it appears.
I'm a software developer, it's what I do for a living. I write monitoring software for data/telecoms networks. If you use a mobile/cell phone, there's a fair chance that your service provider is using software I design, develop and test.
So, when I develop and application for the PSP, I develop a real application. However, since the application doesn't run on the PSP itself it isn't counted as a PSP app by a surprising number of people. My application happens to run on a web server, and you access it using your PSP's built in web browser (so yes, my homebrew works on 2.00 and newer). My application remembers you, has personal configuration that only you can see/edit, and shows you the stuff that you'ved asked it to. Sounds like an application right? Would anyone consider Google Maps, Gmail/hotmail or google spreadsheets to be applications? I would...
So what is the app? Well, it lets you read RSS news feeds on your PSP. Simple eh? You configure the app with your favourite feeds (PSP Updates, CNN/BBC news, World Cup feeds, whatever) and when you access it, it lets you read the feeds. The app is specifically designed to let you read news feeds on the PSP's screen, and everything has been sized to fit it.
The app has been featured on a few leading technology web sites, yet despite submitting exclusive information for it 3 times, PSP Updates refuse to feature it, or even talk about it in this forum - which is a shame because the main thing I use it for is to read the PSP Updates news direct from my PSP.
Anyway, to use the app you just point your PSP web browser to rss2psp.com. The demo you can access without registering (http://rss2psp.com/demo.php) shows you the PSP Updates feed in action. If you register (which is free) you can choose whatever feeds you like. It's easier to configure the app by accessing it first from your PC, copying and pasting RSS urls, then jsut log in and read them from your PSP wherever you can get a WiFi connection.
Anyway, I feel better that I've had a mini rant to myself. Hopefully this post won't get deleted by the mods without explanation. If the mods still truly feel that this application should not be mentioned here then fair play, I'll move on and get over it (although an email would be nice to explain why...). It's a shame, because I like the community here, and there are already a large number of people using the app to read this site's news feed.
If you do use the app, and you have comments or suggestions then please feel free to post them here or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, whichever is easier.
