Viigo App gets the nod with Blackberry Application Centre

Toronto’s Viigo Inc. announced today that its award-winning application is the first 3rd party application to be included in the BlackBerry Application Center for Vodafone Australia. Viigo is a free application that delivers a rich array of news, weather, sports, and stock market data all customised by the user and delivered to them on their mobile device.

“With the wide range of features it offers, it is believed that Viigo is not only an application that adds tremendous value to the BlackBerry Storm platform, it will likely also become a resource Storm owners use each and every day for a wide variety of purposes,” said, Dany Bolduc, Regional Director, Asia Pacific Research In Motion (RIM). “RIM is pleased to have Viigo available within the BlackBerry Application Center for Vodafone in order to enhance the customer experience on the latest BlackBerry device.”

“People often call Viigo the most highly used application on their BlackBerry after email,” said Mark Ruddock, CEO, Viigo. “We’re excited by this initiative, and look forward to helping Vodafone deliver a truly differentiated BlackBerry smartphone experience, right out of the box.”

Great to see Viigo building internationally on their initial homegrown success. Viigo has raised $6.4 Million in angel and institutional investment to date, including its first round of venture capital funding in December 2007 led by Ventures West.
