A really clever free application has recently been released which allows users to listen to a vast range of internet text content. VoKnow 1.0 is available for owners of the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
Released by VoKnow, the application is just like having your own news channel on your iDevice. Users choose which sources they want to follow, and as soon as articles are published they get too hear the stories audibly. Unlike other applications VoKnow is not restricted to pre-recorded content.
The application is ideal for people who may be traveling or commuting but don’t want to be restricted by reading. It can also be a good alternative to music while you are working or relaxing. Users start by registering free at www.voknow.com, and then just enter what content they want to follow.
The range of content covered is vast with topics such as business, sports, politics, friends, news, and much more. All content is delivered in real time as they are written. VoKnow is available worldwide free of charge on the App Store. iOS 3.1 or later required.
UPDATE: Next month VoKnow will also be available on Droid, and you can configure your playlists via the phone app instead of having to use a web browser.
