SoundGecko Turns Webpages into Audiobooks

Ever wish you could listen to your favorite webpage while driving or catch up on AppNewser posts while working out at the gym?

The new SoundGecko app lets you save a copy of a webpage as an audio file. Simply visit this address and paste the URL of an article into the “Try it now” box. The service also features an iPhone app and a Google Chrome extension for easier listening.

Check it out: “SoundGecko is a text-to-audio transcribing service that lets you enjoy written content from around the web on the go without distraction. Be free from screens as you listen to articles by simply sending an email or pressing a button in your browser … Connect your Google Drive or Dropbox account and SoundGecko will automatically place a copy of the MP3 audio file on your cloud drive so you can listen at home, at work and on your mobile.” (Via Maria Popova)
