I know we have mentioned the Viigo Tango project quite a few times on BerryReview. Here is you chance to get in on it. Just keep in mind this is a beta so if you want a more stable Viigo experience stick with the current stable release.
There are actually two Betas going on concurrently with Project Tango; A private and public beta. Currently the private and public beta users will get the same version but in a few weeks that will change with features such as Audio. You will automatically be notified when a new Viigo version is released. This upcoming version of Viigo is very exciting and I cant wait to see how it pans out. They are building in quite a bit of customization into the interface which will let you create you own personal Viigo experience.
The public beta will include:
- News & RSS – essentially the same as the current version of Viigo
- CFL (Canadian Football League) – a sample of what’s going to be possible on Viigo’s Expanded Sports Service (league news, standings, live scores, ticket sales, etc.) … will eventually become part of the sports folder, but it’s separated right now for technical reasons.
- Weather – 5 day forecast for your favorite cities … lots more coming here too including radar, etc.
- Sports – live scores for the following current leagues (MLB, PGA, LPGA, Formula 1, CFL and the Euro 2008) … you’ll see other sports such as the NFL, NCAA, etc as the respective seasons start
- Entertainment – some fun bPLay Games and Themes – including some free games, just for Viigo users … lots more coming here
- Stocks – a very very early sample of a portfolio service, showing updated market data for a sample portfolio of commonly held stocks … lots more coming here, including the ability to manage your own portfolios, and get much richer data than is currently shown.
- Beta Feedback – the ability to submit Bugs, Features Requests or UI Requests directly to our Product Management team right from within the app.
