Viigo on BlackBerry ... how I get my information on the fly

One thing I really enjoy about owning a BlackBerry, is I can do most things on the fly. As long as I have phone signal, I am a happy camper.

I also enjoy simply staying up to date, whether it's emails, twitter, or the like, but how do I stay up to date with news, social events or get my dose of my favourite subject... BlackBerry devices and applications?

Simple, I use Viigo. Viigo is probably, now the most widely used and recognised BlackBerry rss reader, and awesomely, it's free.

What I use Viigo for:

• Getting my current affairs, BlackBerry news, technology updates and more

• Getting my blog subscriptions right to my BlackBerry Bold

• Getting interesting, sometimes quirky commentary

• Keeping abreast of the weather in four different places

If I find any of my rss feeds interesting, I will post them to twitter (I am @TferThomas)... but how do I do that?

Within the Viigo alpha version I use, there is a twitter client, enabling me to tweet any of the rss feeds I receive. Viigo shortens the feed's url (similar to or bit.lify) and places it ready to tweet. All you have to do is add your comments, if you want to, and then tweet! Simple.

I would be quite lost without Viigo or my BlackBerry Bold.

To get the latest Viigo application for BlackBerry, point your BlackBerry browser to and enjoy.

  2. Thanks for your comments, and if I find anything, I will certainly advise, as you do have a "must have" BlackBerry applicaiton on your hands.
