@twandjosh what was the motivation for this product?
JoshMaker@twandjosh · VP Eng @ThreadMeUp, Founder @NarroApp
@blendahtom @twandjosh I listen to podcasts constantly. I don't have time to read all that I'd like during the day, but I have my commute and workout to listen. I thought I could listen to my bookmarked articles during that time, and it has been lovely. I've also heard from a group of users who like it for the visually impaired!

@twandjosh a replacement for Umano?
JoshMaker@twandjosh · VP Eng @ThreadMeUp, Founder @NarroApp
@chrismessina I've never heard of Umano before. If they indeed were a way to "Listen to your favorite news stories Explore the largest collection of audio articles powered by real people." (cached google meta description), then yes, something like that! But leveraging good TTS instead of live readers.

LOVE this product. If you build feature to automatically create podcast episode recordings for every pocketed article I will pay you lots of money and be your #1 advocate! :))

I always loved listening to written articles. I used to use a Workflow extension to speak text, which required me to copy paste the whole content into the Workflow on my iPhone. This is much simpler! Thank you!

@maxime_leblanc Lovely to hear.
