“Pandora for News” BuzzVoice Comes to Android
Look, we get it. You’re a busy gal/gal and don’t have a ton of time to keep up with the news. Aside from 140-character tweets and rss headlines, you’re too caught up with life to sit down and actually read your news. Wouldn’t you prefer to listen instead? That’s where BuzzVoice comes in.
BuzzVoice bills themselves as somewhat of a “Pandora for news” whereas the user can listen to news from a variety of sources – over 1,600 to be precise. Customize your playlist from sites grouped into nearly four dozen categories and have your feeds read to you when you’re at the gym, in the car, or on the subway!
Although BuzzVoice does exist on iPhone and iPad devices, there are three special features in the Android version to make it stand out:
- Background Audio Streaming: Listen to breaking stories while checking Twitter, Facebook or email.
- A Custom Android Widget, which allows you to control the BuzzVoice App right from your Android device’s homescreen
- A New “Android Radio” Station, which continuously updates you on Android-related news from top blogs like Android Central, Phandroid, Android and Me, Android Guys, Android Police, Android Tapp, Androinica, Android Spin & more.
