Too busy to read articles from your favorite websites? Sit back, relax, and listen up as news from any website is magically read back at you with adjustable speeds and multiple accents.
How it works? Just link any article in Speaky. It will extract the main content, detect the language and read it out loud to you. You can retrieve content from your favorite websites or from the cloud.

Great, works well. My only issue is its not as easy to skip through the task as in some of the other apps. But it generally does work better. 👍
Patience is a virtue
I downloaded app late last night and it crashed incessantly on my 4s. Was going to delete and write a stinking review about "poor coding, sloppy execution" - the usual stuff people write when they encounter problems.
However I deleted the app and reinstalled it earlier - wow what a difference! Works exactly as it says it should, clips articles without any fuss and the voice reproduction after downloading the system ios high quality voices, is excellent.
Just goes to show that sometimes you can get a "buggy" download and a bit of patience can go a long way. Nice work, will use this app a lot now.
It's always the simple apps that often make the best ones. I have set up my iPad so that he can speak to me with reference The blog articles and highlighted text etc. when I saw this app I thought I'd give it a go, and what ago it was. It's simple to use and turns all of the blogs that I love to have a look at German the day into that sort of personal radio station...
Keep up the good work, well worth the cash decided inconvenience.
