Default Viigo on storm -working?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone have the podcasts working from Viigo on a Storm here? I get a screen with the text synopsis and an unresponsive "play" icon after the "initializing" phase. Then .... nothing. My experience is that about 1 in 5 apps which access the net actually work on this thing. I'm sure its all down to APN etc, but each app seems to be different. Frustrating.

It doesn't seem to be available yet for the Storm. It shows a "Audio Coming Soon" screen at my end.

Seems Viigo is a bit shakey on my Storm - loved Viigo on my old Curve. Anyone having sluggish performance with Viigo and Storm? Or am I doing something wrong? Got my version from BLACKBERRYCOOL.

My apologies.. i was responding to Stangs2's post about it being 'shakey' on his Storm.

Podcasts via Viigo are not yet operable (for Blackberry) according to Viigo's support page.

Viigo can be a great program, but it's memory leaks are terrible and greatly deteriorate my Storm.

I have had Viigo on the Pearl, The Curve, and the Storm and it's never given me any problems. I installed it on my Storm back in November when I first got it and it has always worked for me. I have it loaded with feeds, and for each feed I have 50 articles in each.

I am using the new Viigo alpha, and I love it.
The podcasts, however, are a disappointment so far.
If they play, they skip and quit. Or, as I was playing one yesterday, would not stop and I had to reset my Storm.
I have used Viigo from the beginning and I am sure they will eventually get these problems worked out.
