    Been hearing about Viigo lately. Checked out their website. Anyone have any experience using it? What's the skinny?

    while it looks like it's got everything, one stop shop, from the overview, it seems like it might be a little overwhelming. And my experience with things that does MULTIPLE things....They tend to do multiple things....poorly.

    Insight appreciated.

    Personally, I think the RSS feeds come through just fine, but I never really used it for much else. Can't say I was all that thrilled with the twitter support, although it was certainly functional, and the podcasts... Well what few I listen to didn't justify holding onto such a large app, imo. My best advice would be to check it out, as it a bad app at all.

    If you don't mind it taking up a little chunk of your memory just d/l it and give it a try. Many people have different uses for it. If you don't like it you could just delete it.

    Viigo is an app on my berry I can't live without!


    I use it for all my rss feeds, weather, sports updates and stock information.

    Slowly but surely I am removing other apps like weathereye and just using one.

    As posted above, download, give it a whirl.

    I hope you like it!

    The newest version is 3.1.330

    I'm not sure if crackberry has that release as I am using blackberry cools release

    Best RSS reader with tons of more function. Great app but is a huge memory hog and seems to act differently on peoples devices. I have deleted it and reloaded it several times already, its a love/hate thing.

    Give it a shot and see what you think!

    Good looking out Jesse! I for one truly appreciate a company that keeps its ears this close to the street in regards to making their product better. I will give the new update a try and see how it is currently running.

    I'm also a big Viigo fan as it's the best RSS Reader that I found, which is indepedent of the Browser.

    How many of you use it for the NON-RSS related features? The social networking, the flights, shopping, podcasts, etc?

    Big fan of Viigo. Easy to use. I don't find it hogs memory on my 8900. I use it to keep up on technology, Reuters, weather. Highly recommend!!!
