How To Import Your Viigo Subscriptions into BlackBerry News Feeds Beta

News Feeds Import Viigo Subscriptions2 News Feeds Import Viigo Subscriptions1

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:

  1. Open BlackBerry News Feeds Beta
  2. Go to Add Feeds
  3. Hit the BlackBerry button and select Import Viigo Subscriptions
  4. Enter in your Viigo username and password
  5. 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?

  1. i just tried to fetch my viigo account and i get an error, so i went to viigo.com and my account is still active. whats the deal.

  2. I prefer using the browser to manage all my feeds. Its more convenient since the ‘read’ status of all stories is synchronized across all devices.

    As browser gets better, I would expect all content specific apps to become web apps. ‘Youtube’ is the perfect example of this. The ‘Youtube’ mobile website is better than the native apps across all platforms (including iphone) with more features and ease of use.

    I’d have preferred if this were a web app.

  3. Thanks, Ronen et al. I’ll check it out. This is why I keep coming back to visit you guys! Great stuff as I wouldn’t want to re-enter all my feeds!

  4. what’s the difference between this and the RSS reader in Social Feeds aside from the access to Viigo accounts? Is it more robust? If so, how?

    I know I could just install the app but I just want to determine if there as a reason to give it a go since I consider the RSS reader in Social Feeds to be pretty basic.

    Thanks.

  5. does anyone have an OTA link?

  6. I bet a LOT of people don’t remember their Viigo username and password, having moved on to BerryReader or other more modern RSS apps since Viigo has been dying on the vine for a LONG time now.
