One thing that bothers me abut the Blackberry RSS readers is the GUI. They just don't seem to be quite there yet. Simple buttons and icons, with subtle colors, and small, not gaudy. In an attempt to make an application stand out, they just make them less visually appealing in a work environment. I'm a big fan of a clean GUI. I like buttons and icons, but I like them small, with a sharp appearance, not fuzzy.
Comparisons are often made between Viigo and NewsGator Go. Now that Handango is offering FreeRange for 75% off, this is even more appealing. I still don't care for this GUI either, but it works pretty well. I have a strong dislike for an application that places advertisements in an installed Blackberry application, whether it's free or not, like Viigo.
