I'm a big fan of public radio, podcasts, and any form of news consumption soothing enough to lull me to sleep if there isn't enough light stimulating my eyes. Umano suits me well. It's an app that lets users listen to articles from top news sources read by professional narrators. There's no excessive emotion, no pundits talking over each other, no background music, and no silly sound effects (okay, there are a handful of those).
Sometimes using your eyes is just so darn tedious. It can be preferable at times like that to just get information directly through your ear-holes. Radio? Sure. Audiobooks? Alright. News? Surprisingly, yes. Umano is an app that lets you find news stories on the internet and hear them read to you by real people – not some robotic monstrosity that can't even pronounce names correctly.
The selection in Umano is fairly broad, but not that deep.
