You can use FC for interaction design and layout, but would have to import the .fxp file into Flash Builder to hook up the data connection to the rss feed. Here's a video on what's involved.
Thank you so much! I may sound like an idiot, but the tutorial only went as far as designing it in catalyst..do you know what should do in FlashBuilder?
Sorry. That needs to be fixed.
Here is an article from the Flex Developers Center:
And a resource for learning Flex in general (Flash Builder is the development environment).
The particular area you want to look at is Requesting and retrieving XML data from the server.
Rss feeds have a common XML structure. Here's a reference on the rss xml structure.
You'll need to understand this structure so that you know which node of rss content to access. (item, title, description, link)
This would make a nice tutorial or blog post showing workflow from Photoshop > Flash Catalyst > Flash Builder.
