When you hear that 30 states have enacted distracted driving laws, what comes to mind? Texting and driving?
Unfortunately, the problem is much bigger.
Due to the explosive growth in smartphone sales, a lot more than texting is going on behind the wheel. Given that 26% of Americans now read news on mobile devices, here at BuzzVoice, we decided to develop an app specifically designed to make keeping up with news in the car a safe, enjoyable experience. It has ONE button. And, of course, it talks.
Introducing DriveWise – Your Mobile News Narrator [iTunes link]
Now You Can Keep Your Eyes on the Road – and SAFELY Keep Up with the Web’s Top News & Blogs at the Same Time!
With a single tap, DriveWise scours the web’s top sources and reads breaking stories aloud to you. It’s the safe & easy way to keep up with your favorite topics in the car, train, gym – or anywhere reading is a bad idea.
The first version of DriveWise lets you LISTEN to the web’s top tech sites on your iOS device, including:
The number of Americans accessing news and blogs on mobile devices has exploded recently, thanks in part to “the smartphone revolution”. A recent report by Pew Internet estimates a full 26% of us now get news on-the-go.
Unfortunately, many sites aren’t optimized for the on-the-go news experience, requiring users to search, sift and read on tiny mobile screens. Couple that with the fact that roaming users often need their hands or eyes for other things, like driving, working out, or watching for that UPS truck while crossing the street, and the task can be downright dangerous.
If you’re a BuzzVoice user, you know that our magical service lets you listen to your favorite news & blogs everywhere. And, after months’ of feedback from users and publishers, we’re excited to say…
