iOS: Don’t have time to read all those long-form articles you bookmarked? Speaky is an iOS app that will read those articles out loud to you.
What’s nice about Speaky is the way it takes in articles. You can drop in a URL, cut and paste text into it, or tie it into your Pocket account. Once you select your text, you select a voice to read it, and Speaky starts speaking aloud. As you’d expect, the voice takes some getting used to, but it’s just as solid as any other cheap voice synthesiser out there.
It’s certainly not the only app that does this, but the Pocket integration really makes it a lot easier to catch up on those articles you put off on reading.
