Viigo - a useful tool.

I got a Blackberry Storm at the beginning of the week. It's a nice device that probably still needs at few tweaks here and there to reach it's full potential (much like the way the iPhone needed a few firmware updates before it got its act together). One of the programs I downloaded was Viigo - this is a nicely designed feed reader which takes advantage of the Storm's beautiful screen. You can add feeds directly or you can just use it to access your Google Reader feeds. It also has stock/financial info and weather feeds. If you're in the market for a free reader and you have a Blackberry or Windows Mobile device then go give Viigo a try. It's nifty and well designed - unlike other feed readers it doesn't use the "old" Blackberry font and unliek AvantGo it uses the whole screen. The tech support is good as well - I'm having issues with updates but I'm putting that down to a combo of beta software and dodgy cellular connectivity.
