There used to be a time when most people got their news from the radio. You must have seen those pictures of mum and dad with their ears cocked to the bulky old bakerlite radio with the kids playing at their feet. These days we get our news from so many different sources. Newspapers, TV and the Internet. The only trouble now is that we don't have as much time as we used to and much of the news that would be of interest to us is lost in the maelstrom. We've turned into a nation of headline readers and tend to miss the real stories.  It'd be great if we could get someone to read us all the good bits. Vocalyze is a mobile phone news audio tool for iPhone and Android that will keep you informed by providing a personalized news and entertainment service - and they'll read it to you while you get on with other stuff.
 
Vocalyze is an audio tool for busy people who want to effortlessly stay informed and  provides a personalized mobile news and entertainment service that turns Tweets, blogs and other written web content into real-time audio podcasts. Unlike other mobile internet radio apps, Vocalyze doesn’t depend on pre-recorded audio. Vocalyze’s text-to-speech streaming technology reads freely available content off the web, from news sites, blogs and Twitter. Therefore, news programs can comprise content from millions of sources, including specific companies, celebrities, sports teams, and even friends and family members. It can even be used as business tool by compiling reading all your tweets from clients, colleagues, and industry experts. You can listen to them on the way to work or while you travel from one meeting to another.

Conclusion
Brilliant idea carried out excellently. This free app is a magnificent and simple way of keeping up with news and entertainment from around the world. Just sign up and create your playlists and favorites and you can tune in straight away. While many will be happy to get their news from other sources it's becoming increasingly obvious that we're only getting half the story. Vocalyze will read you the whole story. We are all pushed for time these days - Vocalize will go some way to take multitasking to another level..and you'll be better informed, too.
