PDF Print E-mail

Despite the lack of an official Google Reader client, Windows Phone 7 has a lot of good feed reader apps (the likes of NewsSpot). Although Aloud is not the client of a popular news service, and you can’t import feeds from another service (like Google Reader) to the app either, but the concept behind it is rather unique app to the platform. You’d be hard pressed to find a similar app on the Marketplace. Aloud is a text-to-speech RSS reader. You can add any news source of interest to the app, and with a single tap, it will begin reading out the introductory paragraphs of all the articles within it.

By default, there are just three feeds added to the app. You can add more feeds from within the Subscriptions section, which can be accessed by tapping the more button at the bottom of the app’s homescreen. Like in any feed reader, you can skip individual posts by marking it as heard or mark all your feeds as heard at once. Aloud also allows you to pause and resume the reading of a post at will.

You can’t listen to entire posts, of course, but you’ll find it to be pretty useful if you’re all for multitasking and like stay up to date with news of your interest.

Aloud is available for free on the Windows Phone Marketplace. Download it to your Mango phone from the Web Marketplace link provided below.
