Talking Netvibes: Using The Netvibes APIs To Make Your Dashboard Talk

Discover the very first 3rd party iOS app that takes full advantage of Netvibes APIs: Talking Netvibes, powered by Odiogo, leading provider of cloud-based audio solutions on the go. A clever app that will make your iPhone read your personal news selection out loud, directly from your Netvibes Dashboard.

Browse throughout your dashboard, tabs and widgets to view and, most importantly, to listen to any story. Social sharing features also allow you to share articles via email, twitter or Facebook.

“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 salute Odiogo’s initiative to provide to our large community, of both individual users and corporations, an innovative and convenient way to access the content of their Netvibes dashboards.” (Freddy Mini, CEO of Netvibes)

“The information overload drives users to seek ways to access information in ‘eyes-busy’ situations, for example when driving, exercising and cooking. This 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.” (Marc Kawam, CEO of Odiogo)

The application is available on the Apple Store (http://bit.ly/TalkingNetvibes) at $2.99. Six month worth of subscription is offered with the purchase of the application. After the 6-month period, an In-App purchase permits a renewal of the service for another 6 months, and so on.
