Mediocre. When they use more real humans rather than electronic readers using human voices, then the service might be worth re-examining. This is a poor man's Umano.
Ugh, continue reading... I like the app pretty well, Sam Scholl is great. The text to voice is just almost adequate. (learn how to read a word that contains an apostrophe! Sheesh!) However there's nothing more frustrating than to be halfway through an interesting article and hear "continue reading." If reading past the fold can't be automated it's worse than useless. Also, it would be nice if you would use the live narrators for long form articles rather than just headline news. Man... I miss Umano.
How did this app get so bad This app used to be a great way to get the latest news you wanted. I just started using it again and WOW has the quality fallen. The readers often have stops and pauses in random places. The aggregation of news stories is less on target too. And it STILL isn't available for Tablets. So sad this has gone down hill. Was looking forward to hearing morning news while I get ready for work like I used to.
Near perfect news reader/aggregator I Love this news app! Pick your own topics and receive related news from around the world or locally. The only thing i can't work out is, how to refresh my news from inside the app. Once i know how to do this I will readjust my app score to the 'perfect 5 out of 5'.
This is not ios A shame, awesome idea. App is slow and the ui is ios not android. Hopefully a material design update in the near future.
When it works...I love it!! I can play maybe up to 30 news briefs and then it freezes up. It happens just about every time I use the app. I have to manually forward it to the next article and then with a little hesitation we are back in business. i am sure they will ironed out the bugs and then this will be a fantastic app.
We fixed a bug that crashed the app when notification is received. Sorry about that. Please upgrade!
