Description

~ Thanksgiving Sale ~ Offline Feed Level 5 is free until Dec 1, 2014!

Ever wondered how Facebook and other online news providers like Life Hacker sound like? Let me tell you, they sounds amazing! But don't take my word for it. Try it out yourself now! It's FREE!

What is it:
AudIOfy is the Internet News Radio of the Future. It reads aloud news articles from Facebook & Twitter channels like an audio book. It doesn’t just read Facebook status updates, it reads the content of the article associated with that feed.

Use AudIOfy to read aloud news articles from your favourite online news provider / blogger, such as CNN, TechCrunch, Business Insider, Bloomberg News, Science Daily, etc.

You can modify it into a great self-help audio book, learn more about Mother Nature and Science, get your daily dose on Finance news, or even turn it your daily health guide. Just find the topics that you like and AudIOfy it!

AudIOfy works best when you’re stuck in a traffic jam on the roads or when you prefer to listen to the latest news, instead of reading it (because your eyes need to focus on something else, such as driving, cooking, dining or working).

AudIOfy not only works great as a news reporter, but is also an excellent (and free) self-help audio book (when subscribed to the right channels like LifeHacker, Business Insider, Entrepreneur, etc).



Top 3 reasons to use AudIOfy:
1) Save time and update yourself with the latest news from your favourite news provider while driving, cooking or dining.

2) AudIOfy is much better than internet news radio stations because it uses less than 1MB of internet data per hour!

3) If you’re visually impaired, AudIOfy can easily enrich your life with audio news!
