    AvantGo for BlackBerry (beta)

    Advertisement



    AvantGo filters the Web and makes it a pleasure to read on your BlackBerry, though anyone who has already bookmarked their favorite sites using the built-in browser won't see much new here. It's Free. Automatically synchronizes articles so you can read them without a cell-phone signal. Channels are clearly laid out and easy to read. However, it's supported with Large ads. Suffers with slow synchronization. Spotty channel selection. Annoying survey on sign-up.

    To download the beta, head over to m.avantgo.com from your BlackBerry's browser.

    Thanks for the update. I used this service several years ago on a older windows PDA and it was a useful service. I will be sure to give it a try.

    I couldn't even get this to work on my Pearl. Does anyone know if there are any bugs with the software?

    I was able to get the software installed, but I get a syncronization error.

    same error I got. I just deleted it. I have YahooGo anyway with all my RSS feeds on it. Not really a need for avantgo but I do like it's interface a bit better than yahoo.

    Re: AvantGo for BlackBerry (beta)

    OK, I think its working now. I did a hard reset, (battery pull) and it is now updating my channels.

    EDIT: ok, it is in fact now working after a hard reset. I will play around with it a bit and give a review later.

    I'm updating as well and will let you know how this goes, so far so good right now

    Ok here's the update. Works like a charm, gives me weather updates in seconds and NYSE updates along with MANY other cool things to view while I am working on other tasks.

    Overall is a 8 out of 10 for me.

    Hi all,

    Can we install AvantGo from DM? or convert from *.jad file to *.alx file?
