Viigo Gets a Hockey Update!

Calling all hockey fans! Just in time for the trade deadline, Viigo has made a bunch of improvements to their hockey service including comprehensive stats such as league points, goals, assists and shut out leaders (to name just a few), team rosters and player stats, team specific schedules and team specific scores and a few other nice to haves (including a feed for trade updates and an NHL Twitter mash up which should be cool on deadline day) are now available. You can watch the video above for a good hands-on overview.

If you're already a CrackBerr Viigo user, these improvements are available to you through your existing version. And if you're not a Viigo user, what are you waiting for??

You can get Viigo for FREE by visiting CrackBerryViigo.com on your BlackBerry!

Does anybody really even watch hockey anymore?

Normally a peaceful people, 30MM Canadians can get quite antsy when their national sport is dissed :-)

Seriously, our new NHL service is a hint at the depth of data (detailed player and team stats, rosters, schedules, breaking news, etc.) that will shortly be available across all our sports.

Stay tuned ...

Great program. I have been using it for a couple months on my WinMo phone than I jumped into a storm and it was my first app that I installed. There are some hiccups that are probably because of me. Sometimes when I add a feed a new section appears to hold just that one. I.E. I have NHL Hockey section for most feeds and then I have an NHL section for one feed. When I added the new NHL feeds today most went to the NHL Hockey section but some showed up in the News & RSS.

Also is there a way that I can change the order in which feeds are listed.

Great program.

I'd like it to do more than NHL, my team is in the ECHL.

Do yourself a favour (yes, that's spelled correctly) and never repeat that question if you ever set foot in our Nation.

The viigo I downloaded from thier site is version 3.0.864

The one from the CrackBerry site is version 3.0.856.

I thought I read in the forums that the .864 is supposed to function better on the Storm.

either way the Hockey addition is cool

Just goes to show AGAIN, that this app should be included with every Blackberry...Honestly

Go to the Entertainment section of your Viigo and you can now add local movie theatres and it will give you the times movies are playing for that specific theatre. Tried it last night, works great ! Thanks for the neat new feature Viigo !

For all those hockey fans that are oot and aboot, eh?

sorry. couldn't resist. :)

MMA Fan

WEWT! good stuff! got to keep up with my hockey, go Sabres!

On another note...when will Viigo get a Mixed Martial Arts section under sports. MMA is one of the fastest growing sports out there, and it would be nice to see wins/loses, when fights were going to happen, Weigh-ins, news, fighter stats, maybe some before and after interviews. Im sure alot of canadians would like to keep up to date with Georges St. Pierre right? =P

with many companies like UFC, Dream, affliction, K1 and more there should be a lot of information out there. Unless they dont want this service to happen?

Hope Viigo can pull something off with MMA...

Maybe I'm doing something wrong - I'm still pretty new to my BBerry - but the links in this article don't work on my Storm. I signed up for and got the email to download the program, but the link just takes me back to the same page where I signed up. Am I doing something wrong?

juded55

Told y'all I was new.... sorry - I had my browser emulation set to Firefox. All good ... :D

frank0013

Very nice update, I hope that viigo will also have an update like this one come football season! I also agree that it would be very nice to see it get a mixed martial arts section!

SO much potential. I wish they'd spend more energy reducing the memory this app hogs, rather than adding new channels. After I deleted viigo my Storm took off.
