    Looking for news push by keyword

    Advertisement



    When I had my 8700C, I must have loaded an application on it (which I can no longer remember) that provided me news (from various news sources). This is how it worked: I would type in a particular word that I wanted news associated with. In my case, I wanted to know about catastrophes. So I set that as my keyword to get updates on, and wallah, whenever a story with that word was created, I would get it on my handheld, and it was in a mobile format. Does anyone know what service that is? I've looked through all of my bookmarks and favorites and can no longer find it. Since I havce the 8820 now and see that it is not providing me my news segments any longer, Im assuming that application did not transfer over to my new 8820 from my 8700C.
    Thanks

    An easy way to solve this problem would be to add "Google Alerts" to your blackberry email address or to a personal email address and add the sending email address to your filters in your BIS account.

    I get Google Alerts on my phone forwarded to me all the time.

    Try this link here: Google Alerts

    You could try the new viigo, sign up for feeds you like and place alerts with keywords.

    I use both Google Alerts and Viigo ... They both take care of my needs very well.
