    Hi there!

    Almost 1,5 years ago, I released a text-to-speech conversion app for BlackBerry 10. It was called "ReadOut! (TTS)" and it's still available in the BlackBerry World. If you're interested in more details, see here: https://forums.crackberry.com/blackb...h-app-1029327/

    Now I'm proud to announce, that I did a complete re-write of the app. A former native BlackBerry 10 app is now available as native Android app. Even better, the app is available for free (with Ads and the ability to make in in-app-purchase to remove the ads)!

    The app is completely integrated into the Android system. That means you can share text from any app directly to ReadOut! in order to listen to the text. You can also share URLs, for example using the Google Chrome browser on your smartphone, to listen to it's content. ReadOut! automatically tries to extract the content from the shared URL and starts to read out the text.

    You can grab your copy here:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.svzi.readout

    Also if you have any questions regarding this app, or any trouble using it, just let me know. I'm happy to help.

    I've also attached some screenshots to showcase the functionality.

    Best,
    Sven
