Three Android Apps that Read RSS Feeds to You

Share

I currently have 276 subscriptions in my Google Reader account. Those subscriptions generate an average of more than 1,000 new articles per day. For the last couple of months I’ve been using Feedly on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to read those feeds. Using Feedly has helped me go through those feeds faster than I could using the standard Google Reader interface. Now I’m trying out some Android apps to have my feeds read to me while I’m doing routine things around the house.

All three of these apps have very digitized voices and rely on text to speech technology. Your tablet or phone will need to have text to speech capability in order for any of these apps to work properly.

WebTalks has the most visually appealing interface of apps I tried. It syncs with your Google Reader account. Bear in mind that if you’re subscribed to a feed that only publishes summaries (CNET’s feed is an example of this) you will only hear the summary read to you.

Read Droid includes the option to hear podcasts through your feeds. The app also allows you to create and play categories of your feeds.

NeoSpeak will read summaries of your RSS feeds to you or you can select to have the full feed read to you.
