    Where does dynamic content live in a metro app


    Suppose I want to create a (metro style) news app. Where do I put my dynamic content (newsitems that have to show up in my app). Do I put them somewhere on the internet?

    I started to read this over the weekend, it may be of some assistance.

    Create your first Metro style app using C# or Visual Basic

    Hi TypeR,
    I did that. As far as I can see, I have to create an RSS feed and use that to get my data is my app. Is that the way to go?

    That's the way I understand it, although, I have to admit to falling asleep reading it.

    We just wait for the "Dummies" book ;-)
    Meanwhile, I give the rss a try.
