How to create an android app that can notify user immediately if something on a website is updated.

Suppose I have a blogger blog like abcd.blogspot.com. So what i want is that whenever i post a new topic on my blog that topic notification should be pushed on to every android device that has my app installed. Please explain in detail if possible And I am not able to use php because its a blogger blog.

you could download the whole websites text to a string (similar to this: http://www.coderzheaven.com/2011/07/...ng-in-android/) and generate a hash or md5.
you could do this every time you sync and compare those md5s/hashs ,if they are different hr content has changed

What you can do is add a page to your blog which contains last update date.
Each time your app launches you can get the value of the date and compare it with the last date which you must have saved in shared preferences or whatever.
