Pimp Your Work

b5media and Virtual Reach bring you Viigo-read your favourite blogs on your Blackberry

by Tris Hussey on June 28th, 2007

Looking for an RSS reader for your Blackberry?  Something powerful, free, and loaded with your favourite blogs?  Well I have the application for you, Viigo:

That’s why we’re so excited about our partnership with Virtual Reach Inc., which has a cool mobile application called Viigo that makes it easy to read blogs while on the go.

Using Viigo, mobile users no longer have to go through their Web browser to read blogs. Instead, they download Viigo and the blogosphere comes to you - much just like the RSS reader on your personal computer. Source: b5media - b5media Goes Mobile

First go to the Virtual Reach - b5media page and have the e-mail sent to your Berry.  You can do it over the air too-which is what I did.  Then let it download, install, and reboot your Berry.  You’ll find Viigo installed for you when you return.

To add me to your feeds (if they aren’t there…I had an earlier version so my feeds were already waiting for me)…click the wheel, add channels and b5 is right on top!  Just navigate through and when you find a feed you want…you’ll want PimpYourWork of course!…click enter.  That’s pretty much it!

Now, feed reading on the go.  You might be tempted to add a ton of feeds, and I’ve done this with my other feed reading app on my Berry, but I wouldn’t.  Focus on the feeds that you’d like to just be able to skim on the go.

You might wonder what to do if you find something great you want to blog about or share, etc.  I suggest the Email article option.  You get a copy of the article and a link to the original for easy clicking at your desk.

The key to any mobile application is looking at what you want it to do and why.  Bored and need something to do?  Staying productive?  Staying connected?  On my Berry I really stick to email and a little light RSS reading.  Sure I do Google Maps and a few other things, but e-mail is still king on my Berry.

Don’t try to make your Berry your office on the go or laptop-lite.  It just isn’t intended for that.  Stick to what it’s great at and you’ll be happy.
