The app provides an amalgamation of stories from different publishers that are read and recorded by professional narrators that make listening easy and enjoyable. Most of the stories are shorter so multiple stories can be comfortably listened to each time you check in. The categories are picked by the user in order to tailor the type of stories preferred … although I still have found most of the stories are from liberal publications (and my comment is as an NPR radio listener … not just FoxNews).
Another optional feature is the ability to “download” stories when away from faster data connections instead of streaming the stories, but this comes with the $3.99/mo premium service along with a few more features (below). Included with the free version is a 2x speed and it is helpful in speeding through slower readers or just as a way to finish off a story. Give the @umanoapp a try by downloading the Android or iPhones app.
