What's NewThis update fixes reading aloud problems caused by changes in external APIs from both InstaPaper and Read It Later (now known as Pocket).
App DescriptionRead It Aloud reads aloud any web article from your feed reader, Pocket (formerly Read It Later), or (paid) InstaPaper account(s) anytime, anywhere. Using state of the art text-to-speech technology, you can listen hands-free to your reader's RSS feeds and/or saved web articles in a soothing voice when you’re driving, walking, working out, or just plain relaxing. During your busy workday, just tag anything to read later as usual. Then, during your evening commute or workout, Read It Aloud becomes a personalized “News Radio” that broadcasts just the news and information that you want to hear. Why listen to gritty news stories that you don’t really want to know from around the world, when you can listen to content that you've personally selected from the Internet? Not only is Read It Aloud your very own Internet radio station, it also keeps you up to date and productive wherever your eyes need to be otherwise occupied.
Read It Aloud:
* Reads aloud your RSS feed or web articles saved via Pocket (formerly Read It Later) or InstaPaper (paid account only) in a pleasant, easy-to-understand young woman’s voice
* Displays each article on the screen, so that you can tap around to read saved articles at random
* Intuitive play, pause, and skip forward/back buttons, just like the built-in Music app
* Reads as much or as little of each article as you prefer, choosing one to all paragraphs of each
* Double-tap to expand and read aloud entire article
* Continues reading aloud in the background (just like the built-in Music app)
Benefits of Read It Aloud:
* Listen to your saved articles and RSS feeds while driving, walking, in a meeting, at work, anywhere your eyes are otherwise occupied
* Stay informed, even while you’re rushing around
* Relax your eyes by listening to, instead of reading, your saved articles
* Hands-free operation keeps you from getting pulled over for "texting while driving"
* And most importantly, it could prevent an accident and save your and/or another's life
