Update 6.0.3 March 2015
I am a paying premium user of Umano and I love the app. I recommend it to everyone.
This is my favorite and most frequently used app. I enjoy that I can select channels and screen for articles that are interesting to me and then download them for later listening.
The previous update was terrible and I dropped my rating to 1 star. The staff at Umano listened and changed all of the major problems I had with the app. There are some minor esthetic changes that I think do not improve the program, but do not distract from its function either. Nothing that would cause me to decrease my rating of the program.
The one problem I still have with the app, is the increasing number of people who are writing their own web material and then reading it on Umano. Most of this material is lower in quality from both the content stand point and from the quality of the production and reading of the material. They end up using Umano as a way of self-promoting their own material. I hope this practice is limited in the future.
Stop reading and start listening!
Great article selection and curators. I listen to tech, health and fitness, GTD, UX, life hacks and startup topics all day while on the road and at the gym. Premium is with the $3.99/mo for the time you save and the information you get in return. Definitely fits into a smarter and not harder lifestyle.
You the man, Umano
This is a tremendous way to "stay in the know on the go." More personalized news options are here, but my listening has been restricted to a certain amount of listens. This is a great ESL tool. However, voice readers are losing some quality.
