We saw CrackBerry Viigo Tango 8 get released for the Storm last week, and now the update has been pushed out for all devices! Tango 8 brings the ability to Tweet articles, find out what's playing in a theatre near you, create stock portofolios and the shopping service has been introduced. You can check out the video above for a hands on overview of what's new.

I downloaded this on Sunday. Seems to be OK but haven't messed around with it much yet. The original plan was to remove Viigo from my 8330 but started the program up one last time to see if I wanted to keep it and I got a message that a new version was available. Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.

I deleted Viigo a month or so ago. I just couldn't take the memory vacuumm any more. Any word yet if that problem has been fixed?

...Guess I'll give it a try. I can always delete again I suppose.

mike240se

its fine for me if i dont keep it open in the background. were you letting it run in the background? your best bet is to completely close it out when your not using it, then its fine. it doesnt use any memory when its not running.

QFT, except the part about giving it another try, haha!

mike240se

if the software can tweet articles with a desc. for the article. why not just let us tweet using viigo too? the functionailty is clearly there.

Matt Bogart

We do have an alpha version of the app with expanded Twitter functionality and we will be releasing it in a future update. Crackberry Kevin does a great job of keeping people up to speed on our developments and I offer you to follow me, @mjbogart, or our CEO, @RuddockMH, on twitter as well.

nfoman

Loving the new features, especially since i'm in Toronto. Ill be using the Movies search tool every week haha. Thank you!!!

nfoman

Just tried to add 'Local Movie Showtimes' but received an error:

Error Running Script. Execution : Command 'http://v1.channels.services.viigo.com/scripts/movies.vii' does not exist

tritan

what is the bad rap this program has is it memory or battery life? I hear alot of people comment on how they don't like it. Does it have a facebook plugin?

jgbrock

I had high hopes of getting windows live off of my bb. But I get nothing after "successfully" adding a movie times channel

I like the new Viigo a lot better than all previous versions. I still think it's responsible for eating my memory so I have to look into that. Thanks for the update CB.com!

OK im tweaked right before this drop there was beta like i downloaded it was better then this one. it had a social app so you can use twitter . well this drop a day later and i upgraded but no social app what gives? in this article it mentions using twitter but i cant find it. Any one have a clue where to find it? im on a 9530 storm

Matt Bogart

The difference between the version that was released today versus the one released within last week or so is that this is the official public Beta as opposed to the private Beta. It would be great to continue to receive feedback on the private Beta and if you use the link that was previously provided you can reinstall it.

I have the same error reported above by nfoman:

"Just tried to add 'Local Movie Showtimes' but received an error:

Error Running Script. Execution : Command 'http://v1.channels.services.viigo.com/scripts/movies.vii' does not exist"

Any ideas on a fix?

tfrankson

I really like this update and it fixed a few annoying problems I had in the past. Love the new icons at the bottom too.

Does anyone know how you add flight itinerary info...

Matt Bogart

Once you are in the Flights & Travel service and have performed a search for a flight, and presumably found the flight you would either like to take or are taking, click on the devices menu button (to the left of the track ball on most BB's). A list of options comes up including the ability to add that selected flight to your itinerary. When you return to the main Flights & Travel screen and select "itinerary", that flight will appear.

For reference, a how to movie explaining by step how to do this will soon to be available on the viigo website.

bbatfan

Viigo is my #1 BB app so I'm always psyched to see a new beta release. I'll be interested in trying out the ability to add stock portfolios in the Stocks & Finance section but more interested in seeing how the the Movie information works in the Entertainment channel. So far I get a script bug when I try to add Local Move Showtimes so I hope that gets resolved soon. But if it works, I may have found a good reason to remove Poynt Beta.

todd123

Well the movie channel works if I add a Canadian City, no such luck for U.S. though. The format of city name alone for selecting a city seems problematic. How does it handle two cities with the same name. The flight itinerary now is different, more info but the previous version also included a graphical view like flightstats.com does. This app is great and having everything in one place is really convenient. Love it.

toneynola#CB

is it just me but the link does not give you tango for the pearl but version 3.0, how do you get to tango 8

T-BONE82

movie listing doesn't work, there is a script error.

jsuch2002

how do you download this....cant find it? went to link and there is nowhere to download???

Matt Bogart

Are you able to land on a download page but can't find the download button or is the page not loading?

Spoke with AT&T and 3 reps .... they resent the service books and now we are back to were we should be.

Sorry for the angry F-BOMBS, but you can imagine the stress level !!!!!!!!!!!

Matt Bogart

PrivateChef, thank you for posting on the experience you encountered. We apologize for all the inconveniences and issues you had to deal with. Hopefully you have been able to restore your device and should you need any further assistance we are ready to help.

Having never come across anything like it, if you are so inclined, we would very much appreciate the opportunity to learn from this. If you could please provide us with information on the Storm OS you are running we will investigate further to be sure it doesn't happen again. You can reach me directly at matthew.bogart@viigo.com.

norcalberryuser

.....any luck finding a solution for the error message?

Jesse S

Hey norcal - we think we've fixed the issue that was triggering the error messages. You shouldn't see it anymore.

rjroll

I just downloaded viigo and I can't find where its going or being saved to. Does anyone know where I can find this app or if there is a way I can save it to a certain folder? I'm using a 9530 storm and have already checked in the downloads folder as well as restarting my device and reinstalling the app.

vware1955

i need some help would like to delete apps from my bb and dont know how also i downloaded some wallpaper but dont know how to delete them and also i dropped it putting in my case go figure huh any way to fix the scratches

43425

It's so SLOW, it hurts.
Crap.

jennsingle

Am I going to have to re-enter all my RSS feeds or will it transfer my preferences over to 8?
Also,Crackberry sent an email to my BB, meaning I CAN get this new version for my Bold, right?

Matt Bogart

Yes, Viigo is certainly available on the Bold and so long as you have an account set up all your feeds will be there when you upgrade.

jennsingle

And the RSS feeds? Any idea?

indigoblu

I was able to add two cities that I wanted to add, but, the "add theatres" feature does not add all of the theatres in a city, only a couple.

mjbogart

Pleased to see that you are trying one of our newest features. While it is possible that our content provider does not have access to all of the theaters in America, Canada and the UK, we hope that the information provided will be of value to you.

joseatnj

Not sure why when I send the link to my phone and I click on the text link that says http://getviigo.com/crackberry It takes me to the viigo site but a white screen with a bar on the right that doesn't have anything for me to download from....

mjbogart

It could be that the "emulation mode" setting in your browser configuration is not set to BlackBerry. Please let me know if that is not the cause.

Newbie1965

I am new to Blackberry, do I need to delete my current version of Viigo BEFORE I download the new Beta 8 version.
Please help a new guy. Thanks

helphand

This movie feature is great in concept, but it sucks in execution. There are at least five cities nearby with theaters, as it stands I have to enter each city individually and the results are grouped by city. Way too much hassle and way too difficult to easily see what theater a movie is playing at.

The interface should be changed to be zip centric or something, e.g., enter your zip and all theaters within a certain miles radius are listed (or all movies playing in theaters in that radius). Would be much more useful then.

pastorrod

I agree that the movie concept is great and that it would be great to get theaters zip centric. At the very least let us input the US State. After all, there are cities of the same name in more than one state. Thanks
