The Shipping Forecast from the UK Met office is a tight, compact meteorological forecast for the areas around the UK and Ireland used by boats in the region.
Due to its poetic structure, it has a listenership far beyond its intended audience. It lends itself nicely to relaxation and focus. These minutes can be saved to Health app for mindfulness credit.
Depending on your available time, you can select between short, medium and long versions and the Text-to-Speech voice will read the dynamic forecast.
⊛ Fixed the Text to Speech to continue to play even if you have the ringer set to silent.
Ratings and Reviews
I was so excited to find this app but the automated computerized voice absolutely ruins it. This loses all the charm, peacefulness, and meditative qualities without a person reading it. Guess I'll just keep listening through the Web.
Too robotic sounding. Not melodic enough for relaxation.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
