Amazon Appstore Launches with BuzzVoice in the Line Up

BuzzVoice on Amazon AppstoreApp stores seem to be popping up everywhere. In addition to the “traditional” app stores, wireless carriers and third parties are opening app stores too.

GetJar has its independent appstore, AT&T has a recommended apps section on its smartphones, and Verizon has it’s V CAST Appstore (which features a Verizon-branded version of BuzzVoice “on the deck” – thank you Verizon).

Today, Amazon brought the new Amazon Appstore live, and we’re excited to say that BuzzVoice is one of the first apps in the store. The store, which features just over 3,800 Android apps is now available in 2 flavors: you can access the store on your computer at Amazon.com, or, you can access it on your Android device.

Checkout BuzzVoice on the Amazon Appstore and let us know what you think by emailing us at feedback@buzzvoice.com

No problem – the new “Add Feed” feature lets you add ANY RSS feed to your playlist.  To try this, and all of the other great PRO features for free,  just tap the “More” button in the app.

4) BuzzVoice is Now FREE!

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…

The All New BuzzVoice 3.0 Is Coming Soon

BuzzVoice 3.0 sports 6 revolutionary new features for on-the-go news consumers and will run on the original iPhone, iPhone 3G & 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch, and iPad. It’s never been easier to keep up with your favorite topics, while increasing productivity. And, if you know how to use Pandora, or an iPod, you already know how to use it.

Look for a chance to win a free copy of BuzzVoice 3.0 on some of the web’s top blogs soon. Once Apple has approved the new app, we’ll post more details, and a download link here. In the meantime, we would love to hear your thoughts at feedback@BuzzVoice.com.
