FINALLY Can finally hear news from sources that aren’t singularly focused on ratings while driving. Thank you so much, Tribune.
Great App for the Car Awesome app for listening to the news while I drive to work and it’s so much better than news on the radio. For a version 1.0 app, it seems to be in really great shape and has a decent number of a features. Very nicely done. A few things would make this app even better: 1. Variable speed speech (currently, the speech is a bit slow IMHO) 2. Ability to select/de-select specific news sources 3. Ability to select/de-select specific voices 4. Ability to add additional localities for weather
This is an awesome piece of app I am a huge RSS nerd. I blow through 200-400 rss feeds a day to keep up on all my interests. I just downloaded Newsbeat and I’m really impressed. The first thing that stands out are the text-to-speech voices. Two of the best I’ve heard. I spent some time and added in different sources I want included. I do wish it had more, but it is a good start. For instance, I couldn’t find any topics on TV/Television or Celebrities. It’d be even better if I could add in RSS feeds. So far, this thing is pretty amazing. It’ll be my go to to get news
