Downloading the Eco Buzz Widget to your Android device is basically like getting a constant news feed devoted just to stories about climate change, green living and the environment in general. Potentially, it’s nice for those interested in such news, but unfortunately, it lacks useful articles.
Eco Buzz works with Android 2.3 or later, and appears on your home screen as a widget, rather than an app — you can see the headlines and a little bit of the text of each featured article right on the widget, and read more if you tap into it. Once in Eco Buzz, you can page through lots of stories and follow links back to the original version.
The only trouble with Eco Buzz is that it’s preaching to the converted, and stories tend to play to an audience of people already concerned with climate and the environment. There’s definitely some good news here, but there’s a lack of helpful information despite the app description claiming you’ll get tips on how to make your life a little greener.
