    Having sat through countless boring lectures in school, my attention span for listening isn't very high. If yours is, you should try Umano, a news reader which literally reads the news to you. None of that text-to-speech stuff too—real people!

    Double task and hear REAL people read the news while doing something else. You can pick from so many news stories and also save them on your device for later!

    This is a great way to know whats going on in the world without having to actually read the articles. Each article is read to you by a professional announcer and you can customize it to find the articles you are interested in daily.
