    My Google foo is failing me for some reason. I'm sure there are 1000 solutions for this, but dang it I can't find one.

    I am looking for an android app that can run on my phone to monitor the values in a web api response. Pull, not push. xml format.

    Ideally it would do the following:
    Consume any well formatted xml like response. I know, I know.
    Allow me to choose a field value to monitor.
    Define alert thresholds - numeric specifically.
    Define monitoring interval. I just need once per 5-10 minutes, not sub second.
    Run in the background and alert if threshold is met.

    I don't know of any app that does that all in some generic fashion. You could knock a specific one out relatively easily..

    Yeah, that's what I'll probably do. I know it's hardly enterprise acceptable, but dang it sounds handy.
