BlackBerry News for the BlackBerry PlayBook v1.2.0.5 Adds Google Reader Import

It seems like RIM is slowly adding back the features they removed when they acquired Viigo and then stripped it into their BlackBerry News app. At least they got rid of the memory leaks but now they are adding back features like the ability to import Google Reader subscriptions. I would be happier if it were a full on Google Reader client but I am hoping they are working on that for next week. 🙂 Mac at Pocketberry scored this change log for the update:

  • Import Google Reader subscriptions
  • Delete or mark articles as read or unread
  • View additional information about any feed you are subscribed to

You can download the latest BlackBerry News app for the BlackBerry PlayBook in App World

  1. All I’m waiting for is the ability for read/unread to sync with the Blackberry News app on my phone. Is that really too much to ask?

  2. That’s a good start. I bought a playbook last week but have been debating returning it as the two apps i use more than any other on my old tab are google reader and Google listen. Neither app has a decent equivalent on the playbook.

    Playbook is pretty app baren still. It’s a shame as it’s a pretty peppy device and I do like the os.

  3. Why only available in a handful of countries?!

  4. RIM is so silly… Only NA people read the news eh?

  5. OK. Any idea on how to import Google Reader feeds? Cannot figure it out!

  6. ok…why can i not organize my feeds into groups?
    i just imported about 50 feeds from my nicely organized google reader. i am now the proud owner of a jumbled mess in my playbook. frustrating that this app is so half baked .

  7. The Google Reader import feature is clunky if you follow lots of RSS feed. It’s there.. but so what? It’s still better to use Google Reader natively using web browser
