☆ Announcements can include sender's contact name or number
☆ Optionally read the entire text message, or just the sender
☆ Simple and lightweight UI
☆ Nothing runs in the background, except when reading your messages out!

Permissions:
☆ RECEIVE_SMS: used to receive SMS text messages from system, they are never stored or shared
☆ READ_CONTACTS: used to announce sender's contact name instead of phone number only

Great!! Excellent app works really well, I've it set to read messages when running with earphones in and when driving through a Bluetooth cat kit. Thanks (would be great if it could work with other popular messaging apps)

Works! And... Would be better if a prompt appeared when attaching the headphones.. Say in the notification bar.. For instantly enabling the app to speak messages when headphones are connected...
