“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:

  1. Background Audio Streaming: Listen to breaking stories while checking  Twitter, Facebook or email.
  2. A Custom Android Widget, which allows you to control the BuzzVoice App right from your Android device’s homescreen
  3. A New “Android Radio” Station, which continuously updates you on Android-related news from top blogs like Android Central, PhandroidAndroid and Me, Android Guys, Android Police, Android Tapp, Androinica, Android Spin & more.

For more information, be sure to read up on BuzzVoice’s website.  Download the app to your Android handset today for $4.99 by clicking this link!

    Wow…. This is very, very cool. I just bought this app and I’m impressed with how well it works (at least on wi-fi) … and I’ve only been playing with it for 10 minutes! I think this app is a keeper!

    It’s been a long time since I was one of the first 50 users to download an app from the Market!

      Mikeee,

      Tell Me is a neat service, but how is it anything like BuzzVoice?

      Yes, you can listen to certain types of news on Tell Me – and you can also listen to news on the radio, which has been around for 100 years.
