Prime rate

I wanted to have a way of seeing the current prime rate of the National Bank Of Canada every day. Instead of having a bookmark or a RSS reader, I figured it might be useful to have that information displayed on the idle screen of my a57i phone. This application is a good example to figure out how to write an Idle screen application. I haved added the url of my application in the "Poll" field under the "Action URI" page. That way, the application is downloaded every 3600 seconds and the idle screen is then refreshed. This application also includes the current outside temperature taken from the ministry of environment webpage.
