It's here! Viigo has just released the 3rd public beta of Viigo Project Tango, and we have it ready for you to download, complete with CrackBerry.com branding. When we first announced Viigo - CrackBerry.com Editon, we became the fastest distribution point of all time in Viigo's partner network, driving more downloads of this awesome FREE app than anybody else (we even knocked off the massive BIG media companies). Let's do it again!! If you have any any other version of Viigo installed, remove it and get going with the latest version below.

Viigo 3 Beta 3 Core Updates
We have implemented the second stage of our memory and performance optimizations in this release. We have reduced the amount of memory used by Viigo, both at run-time and in the data store when the app is closed. We have also made the communications and updating mechanism more robust, equipping it with the ability to self correct when communications timeouts or disruptions occur. Stay tuned for more, as we will be rolling out additional memory and performance improvements in the next release.
We have also added the ability for you to customize your home screen, adding or removing the services you wish. But we have lots more coming here too, as we will shortly allow you to order your home screen to suit your needs.
