Viigo on BlackBerry ... how I get my information on the fly
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 tinyurl.com 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 http://GetViigo.com/alpha and enjoy.
