Ok, it took me a while to get past the name, Pimp my news but the name grows on you.
Since I can’t store and read Pdfs on my iPhone for reading I’ve been trying to find ways to hack around that problem. One thing I’ve been doing is downloading Google Tech talks to listen to, this looks like another option.
You set up playlists either with topics or from the list of rss feeds they give you. Once you create your playlist you can access it from a feed or podcast depending on your preference. Your news is converted from text to vocal news and you can listen on the go.
As far as I can see you must select from their feed list and can’t add your own. Maybe that will change in time?
It is a great idea and they are off to a good start, it’s worth checking out.
