Adam Curry Reviews BuzzVoice: “They’re Onto Something For Sure”

Adam Curry Reviews BuzzVoiceIf you’re old enough to remember the launch of MTV in the eighties then you know Adam Curry. (If you don’t know him from Adam, let us Google that for you).

Curry was one of MTV’s pioneering “Video Jockeys,” who rose to fame as the music video craze first swept the nation. For some, worldwide stardom in one industry would be enough. Not for Curry. He went onto  become one of the “founding fathers” of podcasting, raised a war chest of venture capital and started a number of Web companies.

Not one to sit on the sidelines for the current mega-trend, Curry’s latest creation is “The Big App Show,” a web-only video show where he hand-picks the best smartphone apps to help consumers find “the diamonds” in a sea of hundreds of thousands of apps.

To our surprise, Curry recently reviewed BuzzVoice and gave us a big thumbs up.

Check out the video below and tell us what you think. You can find the latest version of BuzzVoice on The App Store or The Android Market.

Verizon Contest Features BuzzVoice’s V CAST Talking News App

V CAST Talking News Powered by BuzzVoiceAs you may know, we recently announced our new white label smartphone app solution, which allows publishers and wireless carriers to easily launch apps with our award-winning functionality.

After partnering with Cincinnati Bell to give their wireless customers a better mobile news experience, we learned that Verizon was hosting a contest to find the best new apps for their V CAST app store.

So, to meet the mobile news needs of Verizon’s customers, we tapped into our white label tool box and quickly created the V CAST Talking News app, which we just learned Verizon is featuring on their contest site.

We’d love to hear what you think of the new V CAST Talking News app. And, if you’re a developer, please head on over to the Verizon site to cast your vote today. If the Verizon iPhone rumor turns out to be true, we may launch a version of the V CAST Talking News app for it as well.
