This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast: As summer wraps up — and the clouds return to Seattle — we take a break from our normal routine to speak with guests and GeekWire staff about their favorite apps, sites, and web hacks.
GeekWire editor Todd Bishop kicks things off with NaturalReader, a text to speech app that can substitute audiobooks. The app can read most any text out loud, making it a cheaper alternative to services like Amazon’s Audible — as long as you can stand the halting, computerized narrator.
Hoover also shares tips to modifying Slack, a workplace communication tool that’s a favorite at ProductHunt’s offices. Check out the inspiring HumbleBot, and find more at ProductHunt’s Super Slack Apps page.
We also get a peek into GeekWire’s Generation App podcast, where Monica and guests Jason Preston and Mary Kate Ives guide us through the world of Twitch, the video game streaming service owned by Amazon. Listen to the full episode here.
