Odiogo launches Talking Netvibes powered by Odiogo, the first app that makes iPhones read personal news selections from Netvibes Dashboards
New York, July 20, 2011. Odiogo, the leading provider of cloud-based audio solutions on the go, has released in partnership with Netvibes, the global leader in dashboard intelligence, the ‘Talking Netvibes powered by Odiogo’ iPhone application. This app allows Netvibes users to browse their entire dashboards, tabs, and widgets to view and, most importantly, to listen to any story. Social sharing features also allow the user to share articles via email, Twitter or Facebook.
Marc Kawam, CEO of Odiogo says, “The information overload drives users to seek ways to access information in ‘eyes-busy’ situations, for example when driving, exercising and cooking. The Odiogo technology combined with Netvibes dashboards, allows users to create their personalized audio news bulletin with the news sources that they trust. Also, the audio feature proves itself to be extremely convenient for visually impaired users or for those experiencing difficulties reading on a small screen, as well as for language learners”.
“Allowing partners and third party providers such as Odiogo to connect with the Netvibes environment via a set of secured APIs, is at the cornerstone of our strategy. We are the universal platform that lets you Dashboard Everything,” said Freddy Mini, CEO of Netvibes “We salute Odiogo’s initiative to provide to our large community of both individual users and Fortune 500 brands, with an innovative and convenient way to access the content of their Netvibes dashboards on the go.”
The application is available on the Apple Store (http://bit.ly/TalkingNetvibes) for $2.99. A 6-month subscription is included with the purchase of the application. After the 6-month period, users can renew their service for another 6 months from within the app.
