Wonder how long it comes out of Alpha and into Beta... Anyone have any issues with the Alpha as far as memory leak?

I am holding off for a bit... until it goes beta, at least... 3.09xx works fine for me - no need to rush it...

i have found that using twitter with it can slow down the app a bit and make it lag.

I managed to listen to podcast using headphone without any issue but did not change any parameters. I did not change any settings. I'm on 5.0 but do not think it does the difference!

Download failed for me. I got an error message saying something about compatibility. I too will wait for the Beta version.

It should be fair game to post the URL... it's in a podcast on crackberry.com, and the URL is given out by the President of the Viigo, so it's not longer private.

Are you serious? Viigo is like professional memory leak software for people who LOVE resetting thier phone daily! I can drop to 0 device memory free in less than 24 hours!

As far as the link, if you are part of the private beta team, it is the same link you used to download that and would therefore be covered under the same NDA you agreed to before. I doubt they would take any legal action, but I still wouldn't post it.

I don't let Viigo run in the background it's that simple.. You can set it in the options..

Has this been released into "beta" yet?

I am really tired of the bloating in this app. The last 3.0 version (3.0.892) was over 1 MB WITHOUT all the social networking stuff and podcasts... I have no interest in upgrading beyond where I am. I love the convenience of Viigo, and I have come to depend on it for RSS feeds, daily new updates, etc... but c'mon, Viigo... enough is enough.

After the OS and a few other apps, my Bold only has 54 MB free... and Viigo, you DO NOT get all of it.

I find the beta a bit slow but not as slow as the alpha
