Twuner is the first Twitter application on a mobile platform, that brings the latest in text-to-speech technology to the world of micro-blogging. Its a talking Twitter client for the Apple iPhone or the iPod Touch developed by Krystronix, a software development company.
Released in the US and UK on August 10, the app is available at the Apple App Store for $2.99. As Twuner reads out Twitter posts, it will even play them while you're listening to music, with tweets announced then music playback automatically resumed.
Twuner automatically refreshes itself periodically, as often as every 30 seconds, so you can be fully up-to-date with all the news arriving via Twitter with minimal impact to your productivity according to Krystronix.
