I’m glad to see that RIM didn’t forget about Viigo, the RSS news app they purchased back a year or so ago. Earlier today, RIM launched their BlackBerry News Feeds App for BlackBerry, which brings all of your RSS feeds into one app, instead of Social Feeds. I was sad to see they didn’t have support to import from Google Reader, and really wasn’t looking forward to re-adding all my RSS feeds. Then a reader over at BerryReview pointed out that you can actually import your Viigo RSS subscriptions over to RIM’s new News Feeds app. To import your Viigo account follow these directions:
- Open BlackBerry News Feeds Beta
- Go to Add Feeds
- Hit the BlackBerry button and select Import Viigo Subscriptions
- Enter in your Viigo username and password
And bam! You can then select which RSS feeds you would like to import from Viigo (don’t forget to re-add us). In case you haven’t downloaded the new BlackBerry News Feeds App you can grab it from BlackBerry App World.
