Gi2MO Reader is a Windows 8 touch interface optimised application that works as a feed browser for Idea Management Systems.
The application has been designed to demonstrate touch interaction with multiple Idea Management Systems at a time and the usage of Gi2MO Ontology for data portability and mediation. The Gi2MO Reader presents how IdeaStream or any Gi2MO feeds can be connected to client devices via RDFme Services.

Gi2MO Reader is a Windows 8 app based on ListView component that allows to display ideas in grouped tiles. Some of implemented features are:
- adding new feeds and loading data from either local/remote static RDF/XML or REST services (e.g. SPARQL endpoints)
- usage of CSS3 media tags to adjust application to snapped view
- adding live tiles for each Gi2MO feed
- basic use of application bar and application settings integrated with Windows 8 Modern UI
Aside of idea list and idea content display, the application shows statistics such as idea count, comment count, review count, idea ratings etc.
The application can monitor any amount of Idea Management instances as long as they can deliver required information serialized in RDF/XML. The source data has to be constructed following the guidelines of Gi2MO Ontology and its optimized version – Gi2MO IdeaStream Ontology. For details of the format please refer to the sample files; for general guidelines of using Gi2MO ontologies see the respectable specifications.
