Apps with Custom Slideshows

You can customize the terms in your app. The latest version also allows custom slideshows that don't depend on the results from search.

Using RSS Feeds

The Keys Mobile platform uses keywords to search Google, Bing, and Yahoo for images, videos, and links. Keys can also access list of photos stored at Flickr, Picasa, Youtube, or other structured websites via their RSS feeds.

In the top-right example, we've changed the Tablets War app to include an opening slideshow (ie about Keys) that self explains the Keys platform.

Each slide has a custom link that redirects the user to any web page to learn more about a topic.

Advanced Customization with RSS Feeds

Flickr sets and groups; Youtube collections; and Picasa albums have RSS feeds represented by this icon: . On Windows computers, right click this icon to copy the URL for this RSS feed to your clipboard. Paste into the app input box using the following syntax:

this-term@http://uri; next-term

This instructs Keys to access the feed for this-term in your customized app.

Using the New Feature

This feature allows multiple uses:

  • We can improve lessons and information delivery about Keys or an app directly inside the app. eg A slideshow can introduce the contents of an app.
  • A magazine provider can include information from their latest issue as a slideshow.
  • Advertisers can include their own slideshows as a term of an app.
  • User groups can participate and improve the relevancy of information inside an app.

  • Notice of Rights

    Keys retains all rights - including copyright, trademark, and patent-pending related to this new design.

    As we expand our partnerships with information providers, look for more improvements to the app content. Enjoy!
