Audioburst and Flipboard team up to offer audio-only content for users on-the-go

 

In an era of self-publishing, quality articles and smart, thought-provoking audio are in infinite supply. Though choice sounds like a positive thing, it is often paralyzing. When faced with pages and pages of unfamiliar search results, it’s often just easier to stick to our tried and true outlets.

Who wants to be stressed out by something that is supposed to be fun? No one, that’s who!

At Audioburst, content discovery is a topic that is very close to our hearts. This is why we are pleased to announce that we are officially live on Flipboard, the internet’s leading news content discovery platform (CLICK HERE to follow our publication).

 

Starting now, Flipboard users can enjoy our signature short-form audio ‘bursts’ alongside their favorite website, news feed, and social media content.

 

We’ve launched with 10 magazines including Top Stories, Business News, Sports News, World News, Entertainment News, and Offbeat Stories, among others. With topics so varied, there’s something to pique everyone’s interest, and as usual with Audioburst, you’ll only find relevant content.

Today’s on-the-go listener doesn’t have any time for filler…and neither do we!

 

                  

 

Audioburst on Flipboard has been quietly undergoing a beta period for the past few weeks, and we have been blown away by the response so far.

Flipboard users have listened to more than 300,000 ‘bursts’ and more than 600,000 minutes of top-notch, curated audio content. It’s been amazing to see Flipboard users embrace the burst, and we can’t wait for you to start seeing bursts popping up in your Cover Stories too.

What are you waiting for?! Head on over to Flipboard and hit the follow button today!

Audioburst Search, a search engine for the world’s largest audio library.

How does it work?

With Audioburst Search, you can access the world’s largest library of live and pre-recorded podcasts and radio simply by searching a keyword. If you’ve used our skills on Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, it works exactly the same way. Only now, it’s available on web and mobile-optimized web!

Never miss a beat on Jay-Z by typing his name into the search box. You’ll get a feed of the latest radio and podcast streams of industry experts talking all about him.

Stay up to date on the latest political scandal by checking out our “Politics” category feed. You’ll always know the answer to “what did Trump do now?”

Find out the news everyone else is listening to, by clicking on our most popular tags on the Search homepage. You’ll never get left behind on the latest current events.

In addition, each 1-3 minute burst of audio stored in our content library is not only readily retrievable through Audioburst Search but also major search engines like Google, Bing and Safari. While you’re searching on Google for news on your favorite topics, you might just come across one of our audio clips!

Audioburst Search is one more step in the direction towards our mission to organize the world’s audio information. We’re excited to be able to offer the world’s content creators and publishers one more channel to serve their audio content, and we can’t wait to see how you find ways to interact with our new search engine.

We’d love to hear what you think! Try it out, and share your favorite audio streams with us on Twitter and Facebook. If you have feedback, please shoot us a message at info@audioburst.com.

Your home automation operates lighting, your home entertainment systems, security, and thermostat. Everything from cell phones to washing machines, Lamps to coffee makers. It’s all been “smartified”.

Last year everyone was talking about Alexa and her 6000 new skills. In 2017, If Uber’s latest move is any indication,  it seems like it’s the “Connected car’s” turn to shine.
