App Turns Your RSS Feeds Into Mini Audio Books For Later Listening
SoundGecko lets you listen to the blogs you like rather than read them, transcribing the text into an audio file that you can access on your computer or mobile device.

SoundGecko is a new service from Australian startup 121cast that lets you listen to written online content and posts from the blogs on your RSS feed rather than read them. It transcribes text to audio, turning them into an MP3 file that you can listen to later.
Using the transcribing service, you could find articles while at work, send them to SoundGecko to convert to speech, and then listen to them on the way home. It works for any type of text content online and users can subscribe to blogs and listen to new posts automatically. The service currently works with iOS device and is coming soon for Android and Windows Phone.
