Attention iPod touch® users: Break free of your Wi-Fi chains!

FeedOrator – The RSS Feed Reader for use with the iPhone™ that SPEAKS to you, no matter where you are!

You can use FeedOrator anywhere, even where there isn’t a 3G or WiFi signal. Simply select or type in your favorite feeds, quickly update the feed contents when you do have a signal, then listen to them for hours–anywhere–while you hike, ride the subway, walk your dog, relax on the patio, or shop for groceries.

FeedOrator gives you four voices to choose from; you can set the speaking rate for all four:

* Hal. Hal’s voice is quite robotic, but can be highly customized. Hal may be the best option for first-generation devices, since it has the lightest computing and memory demands of any of the voices. You can set Hal’s speaking pitch and emotion as well as his speaking rate.
* Ian. Ian’s voice evokes Scotland’s Highlands; it is clear and strong, and can be listened to in relatively noisy environments without the need for headphones.
* Roy. Roy’s voice is warm and chesty. It may be the best option for long-term listening through headphones.
* Dot. Dot’s voice is quick and light, and may be the best option for feeds with an upbeat theme.

FeedOrator converts the text from your favorite feeds into speech on the fly, right on your iPhone or iPod touch. It does not rely on an external website or server to provide the speech sounds. FeedOrator does not need a lot of bandwidth, since it downloads only the feed RSS files, which are small. Plus, it updates the feed files only when you instruct it to, so you won’t be surprised by any large and unexpected “data roaming” fees from your 3G provider. No servers, signups, or MP3 podcast downloads.

FeedOrator comes with over 400 popular feed, blog, and tweet sites pre-set, including news, sports, celebrity tweets, blogs, and gossip, business, science and technology, fun and offbeat feeds, social, gaming, lifestyle, culinary, fashion, travel, automotive…the list goes on and on. Choose your favorites from the list, refresh them, and go!

If FeedOrator doesn’t already know about a feed that you want to listen to, you can type in the feed’s information. FeedOrator should work with any RSS or Atom feed. It works best with feeds that have a paragraph or two of text for each item, such as news feeds, sports feeds, movie review feeds, and technology feeds. It is less useful for feeds with a lot of pictures, graphs, or tables in the feeds, or for sites with very short descriptions of each item, such as recipe or how-to feeds.

FeedOrator keeps track of which feed items you’ve listened to, and speaks only the the latest ones that you haven’t heard yet. It also will automatically skip over feed items that are past their “expiration date”. This can be handy for busy feeds with a lot of new, topical items every day, such as social, technology, and news feeds. Did a feed item that you’re interested in expire? No problem; just mark the feed “unspoken” and all the recent items will reappear.

FeedOrator also lets you choose the “detail level” for each feed: it can speak the titles of items in the feed, the title and first paragraph, or the entire item, no matter how long it is.

FeedOrator can speak the items in feeds or folders in oldest-first, newest-first, or shuffled order.
