I want to make an RSS reader app but dont know how

I am a PHP programmer by day but a apple geek by night.

I want to make an app with the new [iPhone] SDK to view RSS feeds. It will flag when there is new news like safari does.

if you wanted to do it for the Mac OS (Desktop) you would use the PubSub framework, but I don't think its available on the iPhone but I may be wrong.

RSS are just XML files so your have to find a way of reading them in and checking if there updated.

Have you checked dashcode that has RSS functionality for iPhone in the form as a web application.

You need to start learning Cocoa, and download the SDK and read through the documentation so you can get a sense of how it will be done.
