The final stage in the Build a Blog Reader Android project has arrived!

Hurry up and finish your Blog Reader app! Using Intents to Display and Share Posts is now live on our site.

Our list of blog posts looks nice and everything is working well behind the scenes, but nothing happens when the user taps on an item in the list. In this stage we'll add a listener for such a tap using the 'onListItemClick()' method and talk about a few different Intents we can use for different actions. First we'll use an Intent to open the URL of the post in the browser, but then we'll add a second Activity to open the URL within our app and display it in a WebView. Finally we'll let users easily share the link however they want using the simple Share Intent.

Sorry about the delay for this one - hopefully it is worth it! I look forward to the new project release cycle for future projects to avoid long delays like this!

Awesome. Not sure if I like the idea of "full-project" releases just yet. I like the ability to have access to a video once it's made, and not once the 20 videos after it have been made. Let's see how it goes. Bonus Feature Request: Remember how you asked us in a forum for which topics we would like covered next? Maybe you can make a voting page for topics, where registered users can cast a vote for a specific topic in a specific area. Just an idea. Keep it up guys!

You are just awesome!!! :)

A Project with user login and using github for version controll would be great! :)

Thanks for both the kind works and cool suggestions! @Ernest, I'll make a note of your voting idea, and @Fabian, though I don't have anything planned for GitHub and Android just yet, just know that GitHub is definitely on Treehouse's priority list!
