turns your news articles into podcasts!
Heard about this app from a friend who knew I'm a big fan of podcasts. I get 60% of my news analyses from various podcasts because I like to multitask and listen to current events (while doing dishes or walking to work). This app is awesome because now I can listen to long form articles while I'm on the go. Many of these longform articles don't have an audio version, unlike the Economist's publications. I also love being able to choose the reader's voice. British accents are the most fun to listen to 😊. I am recommending it to all of my friends who are avid podcast listeners.
The voices are something else
Definitely has better voices than any other app I’ve encountered. Unfortunately it charges from $60-156 a year for the services and that’s too much to justify using this whatsoever for serious usage.
