Been using for quite a while, I find it to be a great app to stay current with news and current events when running around all the time.

I have tried Viigo and the AP app.

Deleted the AP app but am still using the Viigo app.

I added all the RSS feeds that I want to have access to and I love that aspect of it. That and I can delete any feeds that do not interest me.

Just remember to hit the options button then scroll to "close" to turn the program off so it does not run in the background.

I set my Viigo to close when I exit the program, so I just open let it run check out the feeds then when I exit back to the home screen I have it set to automically close and not save any articles.

Works pretty good that way and I still can't wait for the pod cast support.

I have been using Viigo for a long time too. It's a great smooth app and will always be on my BlackBerry. Agree with SteveO86 - I can't wait for their podcast support. Should be very cool.

Based on the amt of time Project Tango is out, I am surprised we do not have the podcasts already

I've been using viigo since I got my Storm. They just released a new version for the Storm and it works even better than it did. I'm very impressed.

I just downloaded it a few days ago, and so far I'm loving it. Though I have the Crackberry version...didn't know there was a BB Forums one!

Personally I'm not so impressed with the Tango version. I've tried installing it twice on my Pearl and it always seems to cause my device to hourglass. Plus their website (other than the home page) doesn't work on Safari on my Mac. The pre-Tango version worked fine for me but after the upgrade I haven't had any luck with it.

They announced a 'major update' during WES 2009... and now rumors that private beta for v3.1 is out... should get something relatively soon... as I recall, the whole Tango thing is 'still' beta, more or less...

Yes the version available from the BB App Store is still labelled as Beta - probably the longest time any app has spent in Beta. The WES buzz I've seen talks more about new features like podcasts, rather than fixing what doesn't work.
