News Photos

Show a slide show of 10 news photos from The Guardian, "Photo highlights of the day", and also from NOS website, "Nieuws in beeld" and Der Spiegel, "Bilder des Tages"

At the bottom of the website of Dutch broadcasting company NOS, 10 very beautiful photos are being shown as "Nieuws in beeld". But it's a bother to load the website and to scroll down every time. So the photos will show on your Sailfish device, with their titles, description and source. (Text from NOS will be in Dutch.)

The Guardian appeared to publish daily photos as well, so these are being shown as well.

Der Spiegel recently started with a page, publishing only one photo per day. This page shows over 30 photos now, so in Settings you can set the number of photos to be shown. (Text from Der Spiegel will be in German.)

Thanks to SanderKlootwijk! I used his Nednieuws code to shape my News Photos app. The About Page was heavily inspired by (or simply taken from) Damien Tardy-Panis's Daily Comics.

You are welcome to suggest your own news site, which shows new photos regularly.

Unfortunately NOS stopped the News Photo section on their website. The Guardian and Der Spiegel are still working
