Run On


Run On is a free app for notifying you of incoming text messages by reading them out. Any time you're unable to use your device (running, driving, etc), Run On can read incoming messages via text-to-speech.

Features:
☆ Run policies, such as reading messages out only when headphones or Bluetooth is used
☆ 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
☆ MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS: used to check for presence of wired / A2DP headset, muting notifications and pausing music while speaking

Recent changes:
☆ TTS language settings are now correctly followed

Works Perfectly Gonna share this on Facebook & Twitter. This is exactly what I've been looking for. It reads out texts when connected via Bluetooth, and doesn't when not connected via Bluetooth. No fancy bells or whistles - it just does the job!

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...
