Email to Steve Jobs Puts Lucky Developer on Front Page of The App Store

BuzzVoice 3.0 on the front page of The App StoreWe’ve all seen the flurry of news stories about Steve Jobs responding directly to emails from regular people and developers. It’s become an Internet meme, with reputable sources like The New York Times, Wired , TechCrunch and others attesting to the authenticity of the emails.

Perhaps the most controversial [alleged] response from Jobs is the recent thread between Jobs and an irate iPhone 4 owner about the iPhone 4 antenna issue – an issue so hot that Apple is holding a press conference to address it [Read the thread on the iPhone 4 reception issues on The Boy Genius Report].

Since Jobs seems to read his own email and has expressed a passion for reinventing the news experience on Apple devices during his keynotes, we decided to take a chance and shoot him an email.

In our email titled “Pandora for news,” we explained how 26% of Americans now read news on mobile devices, and that for a nation of commuters, fitness fanatics and multitaskers, reading news on tiny screens is not only a bad user experience, but also a dangerous one. We added that 28 states have enacted distracted driving laws as counter measures. Then, we went on to explain how we used the iPhone SDK to create BuzzVoice, a “magical” new way to consume news on iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices.

Steve Jobs on BuzzVoice 3.0We included a link to a fun video showing how our cloud-based streaming audio service lets people *listen* to over 1,600 of the web’s top news and blogs – making getting news on the go, easier, safer and more fun, and added a link to the new BuzzVoice 3.0 app On The App Store. Lastly, we asked him to feature BuzzVoice 3.0 on The App Store so that Apple device owners could benefit from using it in the car, train, gym, or wherever they happen to be.

We didn’t expect a response. In fact we haven’t received a direct response yet, however, we just noticed that BuzzVoice 3.0 is now featured on the front page of The App Store.

Thanks for listening Steve – we’re pinching ourselves.

PS: The screenshot we included about him being the “smartest CEO” may have done the trick.

Pre-launch Preview: The All New BuzzVoice 3.0 for iPhone

BuzzVoice 3.0's Streaming PlayerThe 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…
