Simple App with Listing and data auto update

I want to build an android app to list 3 or 4 details on a single page (and link to each of its own website) . Every day, the listing will be updated.

What is the simplest way to build this sort of app.

(I'm trying to validate my idea as an MVP product)

Use Model view controller pattern.

Make android list view as your view. Your List Activity as controller and Create a data model for you news.

Update your data model and it will automatically update your listing.

How to update data since it changes daily..

There are multiple ways, the easiest one of them is disply the current data to user and in backgroung(thread) check for update, if there is an update update list. You can use files to save the current data which is displayed in list. You can use java network library to get data from network. You will find good tutorials for the same on internet.
