New iOS App: Friends Aloud Lets You Listen to Facebook Entries
      04/11/11 03:15 PM

VoiZapp has released a new app that allows iPhone or iPad broadcast their Facebook news feed as a personalized "news radio". Friends Aloud brings optimized text-to-speech technology to Facebook on all iOS devices. Friends Aloud Lite reads your top 10 postings and their associated comments, while Friends Aloud Pro can read all of your friends' postings and comments as they occur for as long as you wish, even while in the background. Here is more info:

Using Friends Aloud, a user can:

* Read aloud their latest Facebook news feed posts and their associated comments in a pleasant, easy-to-understand young woman's voice
* Scroll through each post on screen or tap around to read posts at random
* Automatically switch between reading existing posts in sequence or just reading new posts as they arrive for as long as desired
* Play, pause, and skip forward/back using intuitive controls, just like the iPod
* Continue reading aloud while in the background, just like the iPod
* Understand and read common computer jargon such as smiley faces and texting-style abbreviations (LOL, ROTFLMAO, happy/sad faces, etc.)
* Choose to limit the number of comments read aloud

Here is a video instruction on how the app works:

Friends Aloud sells for $2.99 and you can get it from the iTunes App Store:
