We know you’re busy – You’ve got big holiday travel plans, and it’s hard to keep up with your favorite news and blogs on the go.

Now, you can multitask and LISTEN to breaking updates from your favorite sources on your iPhone, iPad or Android device - the safe, easy and fun way. That’s right, BuzzVoice pulls the stories you love off the web in real-time – and reads them aloud to you.

It has ONE button. And, of course, it talks.
