Loud Tweeter lets you hear Tweets that mention you!
FREE VERSION (See below for the difference to Pro version).
If you have Loud Tweeter running in the background and someone mentions you (using your @tag), your phone/tablet will speak the Tweet out loud!
(I built this for when I ran the London Marathon in 2013, and used it to hear tweets of encouragement from friends as I ran! Perhaps other people might find the app useful too...?!)
You'll need a Twitter account to use Loud Tweeter.
**The free version speaks the following message every 7 mentions**
