Track Your Favorite Sports & Exchange Rates With Viigo RSS

viigosports1.jpgThe wonderful free RSS reader, Viigo by Virtual Reach, has added two new types of RSS feeds to its library. You can now track your favorite sports teams and track exchange rates from your BlackBerry. Virtual Reach has added a customizable ESPN Sports Search and Alert feed which allows you to track your favorite sport. This includes sports such as BaseBall, BasketBall, Boxing, Cricket, Football, Lacrosse, and many more. They have also added Exchange Rate alerts for those world travelers who always need to know the status of their money.

From the Virtual Reach announcement:

The ESPN Sports Search and Alert feed (found under Add Channel > Sports) will definitely come in handy for the upcoming NFL Season. Simply type in any search term you like (Teams, Players, Coaches, Scores, Standings, Blogs, etc), and based on your input, Viigo will create a customized sports channel for you.

The Exchange Rate Folder (found under Add Channel > Business & Finance) has over 40 different currencies from which you can choose as your base currency. This feed will provide daily updates valuing your specified currency against all other currencies.

  1. Getting Viigo is impossible. All the several links and/or instructions they give for downloading the application is invalid. It’s the damndest thing.

  2. Luc,
    Just go to http://mobile.virtualreach.com from your blackberry to download. I just tried it and it worked.

  3. OK, thanks. I had been trying for two weeks, and all I got was dead ends. I have it working now. It’s just a little bit rough around the edges, but quite close to perfection.

  4. Glad I could help. They have issues every once in awhile but all in all they have a great product and it is free :)

  5. I’m going back to Freerange. I’ve been trying to get used to Viigo since it bundles so many channels and Freerange is a bit too expensive, but it is not really working. Viigo has a very poor offering of keyboard shortcuts, marking several items as read is very difficult or even impossible, it doesn’t handle images well, articles don’t look good when we pull them in full and it fails to display accented characters like é, ó, ã in too many Brazilian feeds, making them very hard to read. I really tried, but all of these shortcomings just annoyed the hell out of me. Viigo has a lot of potential, but it’s not really ready yet.

  6. Luc,
    I completely agree. Viigo has a way to go until it gets to the be dominating RSS reader but they are working on it. How is freerange? Would you be willing to do a mini review?
