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.

BuzzVoice Will Run On Apple’s New iPad Tablet

The iPad featuring BuzzVoiceListen with BuzzVoiceAt the Apple Event in San Francisco, Steve Jobs unveiled the company’s long-awaited tablet named “The iPad.”

The 9.7 inch multi-touch device offers Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity, weighs in at just 1.5 pounds, and sports a full 10 hour battery life.

And since the iPad runs the iPhone operating system, it will offer functionality similar to the iPhone and iPod touch, including the ability to run “most” apps from Apple’s App Store. 

When the iPad goes on sale in March- at a surprisingly low price of $499 - BuzzVoice will run on the revolutionary new device, allowing you to stream audio versions of breaking stories from the web’s top 1,400+ blogs and news sites.

Lastly, for development on The iPad, Apple announced the availability of a new software development kit that will allow us to optimize BuzzVoice for The iPad. Stay tuned for more exciting features!

Top Apple Blog TUAW, Calls BuzzVoice “A Major Accomplishment”

TUAW BuzzVoice ReviewThe Unofficial Apple Weblog [TUAW] recently wrote a full review of our new BuzzVoice service, and we couldn’t be more pleased with their verdict. (If you’re not familiar with BuzzVoice, it lets you listen to the Web’s top news & blogs on the go. It’s sort of like “Pandora for news and blogs.” Here’s a short video )

If you follow Apple-related news or have an iPhone, you’re probably familiar with TUAW. TUAW is a member of AOL’s popular Weblogs Inc. network, which also  includes Engadget, Download SquadAutoblogBlogging Stocks, and Joystiq.

Here are a few excerpts from the TUAW story titled, BuzzVoice Reads Aloud to You Almost Anywhere:

BuzzVoice is a major accomplishment… I think this is going to be big.

BuzzVoice can most simply be described as a talking reader for over 1400 blogs, but saying that doesn’t begin to do it justice. It’s not just an iPhone/iPod touch app, although BuzzVoice provides one [iTunes Link]. It’s a platform that can be enjoyed on a variety of devices including any iPod or mp3 player, your computer, Blackberry (upcoming) or with added functionality on the iPhone/iPod touch”

BuzzVoice brings podcasting to over 1,400 blogs broken down into 59 categories, while using a natural-sounding voice allowing you to take in content audibly. It does it smoothly, easily and naturally, from a well designed, multifaceted platform, allowing use on a huge number of devices… The voice implementation is nearly perfect.

The BuzzRadio feature, is interesting. Tapping it brings up a listing of topics ranging from Apple Radio to Politics Radio to Sports Radio… It’s perfect for any time your hands should be somewhere else (driving, running or whatever).”
