    Umano: Listen to News Articles's review

    Published: 2013-06-17, by Manu Galvez.

    Umano makes the most of text-to-speech technology to provide voice-narrated news articles

    • Great natural voices
    • Wide range of updated articles
    • Make your own playlists
    • Car-listening mode
    • The app runs smoothly

    "Listen to your favorite news"

    Best mobile applications are those that lay out a simple idea that can be used in lots of different ways. Umano is one of them. The idea backing it is basic: voice-narrating news articles from reliable sources (digital newspapers, magazines, blogs, etc). However, lot of people in many different situations can benefit for an app like this.

    For example, people with sight issues can now keep themselves up-to-date much easier. Maybe you are on the way to improve your English. Thanks to Umano you can read and listen to news at the same time, which will make improve your reading/listening skills. Likewise, you can make the most of your car journey and listen to news while driving. Or while taking a bath. Or maybe your are just too lazy to read.

    In any of these cases, Umano offers a good solution. Umano's added-value features are basically three: a user-friendly interface that lists articles by recent or categories, its top-notch voice-narrators and, finally, its social approach (create playlists, add friends and share content with them,...). It should also be mentioned its "car mode", for a safer driving while listening to articles.

    A must-have app.
