User reviews of NewsHog: News & Weather
Works very well with the Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight (hacked to tablet). This app is scary good and highly recommended.

Vast News Coverage Made Accessible Great news coverage for a vast number of categories (can even use search words, like "Olympics", to scan for relevant articles). The text-to-speech for each article is a HUGE bonus. Only problem is that there is no pause/rewind button once speech is enabled. However, app very successful at making the news accessible for individuals with print disabilities. Excellent work!
