    RSS reader for intranet feeds?

    Advertisement



    Is there an RSS reader for the BB that can use get RSS feeds from behind our corporate firewall through BES? Everything I've found seems to need to aggregate feeds on a public site.

    For devices running OS 4.2, the BB browser itself can act as an rss feed reader and, I assume, could do so through the Blackberry Browser on an intranet site.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    With 4.2, the BlackBerry Browser works just fine.

    It's not quite "RSS" as you would expect.

    The BlackBerry Browser actually goes and checks the content of the site for changes. The site doesn't even require an RSS feed.

    If it's on your intranet, when you set up the bookmark, there is an option to use the MDS browser.

    Works great for me.

    I would also try NewsgatorGo.

    Sounds encouraging, but alas, it appears 4.2 is not yet available for the 8700c? Know if I'm wrong about this or any ideas on when this will be available?

    I've been using Piconews and love it, however I can only select from their existing feed catalog or add my own feed as long as it is available to the Piconews service. I'm trying to get feeds from an internal source on our company's intranet. From what I've seen, Berry BlogLines follows a similar approach to Piconews, but will investigate it further.

    Is this available for BlackBerry? From what I can tell, this only runs on Windows Mobile.

    It does JB. Here's a link for you to get the program: http://www.newsgator.com/NGOLMobileJ2MEBeta.aspx. Let us know what you think.

    You can also check with Virtual Reach about their recently released Enterprise version of Viigo. It's nicely integrated with BES, etc. Head over to Viigo.com for more details.
