RIM introduces BlackBerry News Feeds App, think Viigo.

December 13, 2010 | By | Add a Comment

Before BlackBerry 6 OS I relied heavily on Viigo to grab my RSS feeds, but then after switching to BlackBerry 6, Viigo had pretty much disappeared. Although you could still down a version of Viigo that would work on BlackBerry 6 OS, it just wasn’t the same in terms of performance. Since switching to my BlackBerry Torch I’ve been using Social Feeds to keep me connected with RSS feeds, but I’ve never been a huge fan either.

It looks like RIM has heard the cries of many people such as myself, because today RIM unveiled BlackBerry News Feeds, a new easy to use app that brings all of your RSS feeds into one simple app. It finally appears that RIM’s purchase of Viigo has been brought into play. Sadly RIM has decided to not include support for Google reader as of now. Let’s hope that changes with future releases…

Starting today you can grab a copy of BlackBerry News Feeds for free from BlackBerry App World.
