When I first opened the new BlackBerry News Feeds Beta I was hoping there was going to be a way to get my Viigo subscriptions into News Feeds without adding them all manually. While there is now splash screen setup RIM was kind enough to offer this functionality. Stranjal7 pointed out in the comments that all you need to do is:
- Open BlackBerry News Feeds Beta
- Go to Add Feeds
- Hit the BlackBerry button and select Import Viigo Subscriptions
- Enter in your Viigo username and password
- Check the box next to any subscription you wish to Import from your Viigo account
That’s it! It is really nice of RIM to include this functionality in the app. Kudos to the News Feeds team for making it possible to easily migrate to the new app. Now if we could only get two way Google Reader sync… Then we would have a killer RSS app. Anybody else glad RIM did not let Viigo die?
