If you are a news junky or simply are subscribed to more RSS feeds than the day allows you to read, then you will certainly like this application made by XDA member mcclanahoochie. It is a rather revolutionary concept in the sense that the app reads the news feeds to you. Why or when would you need that? Let’s say that you cannot use your hands or need to focus on a certain task (ie driving), this app would get over that hurdle and allow you to be up to date with your feeds.
There are two versions available, one of which is free, FeedSpeak Lite. The apps can be located in the market, and mcclanahoochie has placed a QR code in the thread as well.
FeedSpeak Pro is a talking RSS feed reader app that reads aloud feed headlines and their summaries. It offers a convenient alternative way to stay updated with your favorite websites and blogs while on the go. Use your Google Reader account to login and pull down subscribed RSS feeds. Free your eyes and hands while listening to your news!
