No. 4: Umano
This app aggregates stories from around the Web and groups them by "Interests," including Entertaining, Geeky, Entrepreneurial and Scientific.
Select an interest and let it roll. Umano starts from the top, reading the first article in the category. It announces the title, the subtitle, the source and then reads the article word-for-word. When finished it moves to the next article in the queue.You can customize playlists in Umano and proceed handsfree. Pandora and Songza help mold the future of radio; Umano does the same with what ends up a hipper, more relevant incarnation of newsradio. Based on its Twitter feed of just 50 or so followers, Umano, surprisingly, has yet to really take off.
