    Pros: 

    Playlist

    Source integrations

    Audio jump access

    Cons: 

    add more blog/news curation sources

    This is so nice, you guys. This is unbelievably resourceful for a lazy slacker like me who continuously procrastinate reading just because it's a load of work.

    This might be a game changer for me to cover more and more good reads. Going to use for some time and share my thoughts.

    Thanks #Play team.

Hey guys! After the Chrome Extension (https://www.producthunt.com/post...) we have been working on this Web platform (and mobile apps) for listening to articles. The idea is to be able to consume content from Medium and other curated blogs (e.g. Paul Graham's essays here) as Audio, and be able to create Playlists. We know a lot of you guys have been waiting for mobile apps, and we just want to inform that they are on their way, a week or two at most and they should be out. Don't forget to Sign Up for the apps if you haven't done so already! The product is all yours now and we are all ears for feedback :) Cheers guys!

@hammadh4 Simple and clean! Loving it! I specially love that you have a separate design category <3 Would have been seriously awesome if there was a "play all" option for a category!

Took me about 5 seconds to know I needed this. Nice work!

@ma7moudfelfel Thanks again. I already know I am going to be using this during my commutes. I like having the desktop to build playlists for me to take on the go. I know you are just getting started, I'll try to be as helpful as I can, I am sure you probably have some of this stuff in the pipeline. Issues: - Subscribing via twitter for mobile (android) seems to fail. Features: My needs mostly have to do with curating playlists, so just more robust playlist features. - Build playlist from authors - Bulk add to playlist - Etc etc to edit/add to playlists (I am sure you get the idea)

Cool! It seems to be pretty similar with Narro.
