Cute Android: Open Source Android Apps for Developers: StyloDownload (Android application for syncing Google Reader starred items to the media player)

Description
StyloDownload is an open source Android application which is used for syncing Google Reader starred items to the media player. A silly name for a service that runs on your Android device. The UI is very simple: specify the URL for your starred items in Google Reader and the service will download any files associated with each item to the SD card. A play list is also created and made available in the media player. A convenient way to sync podcasts to your Android device!

Finding your starred items URL

The URL for your starred items is public but hidden. To find it:

1. Go to the setting page in Google Reader
2. Click on the Folders and Tags tab
3. Click the icon to make Your starred items public
4. Copy the link view public page
5. Replace the /shared/ part with /public/atom/

The URL should look like this:

http://www.google.com/reader/public/atom/user%2FXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX%2Fstate%2Fcom.google%2Fstarred

In the above example the 20-digit user identifier has been replaced with X.

Setting the URL

Email the URL to yourself and copy it on your device. Open the Stylo Download application. Go to Preferences -> Feed URL. Paste.

Running the service

Hit the start button, the service will start downloading any file (an mp3 for example) associated with an item that you have starred in Google Reader. Once all the items have been downloaded a playlist will appear in the media player. Un-star the item and it will be removed from your device.

If the screen is locked downloading will stop and resume once it’s unlocked.
