Eariously lets you listen to the things you want to read.https://www.eariously.com/
Listening has always been my favorite way to learn something new.
I first realized this in college, but I didn't begin to take advantage until after I graduated.
Four years ago, I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail. I discovered a love of listening to audiobooks. I listened to a new one almost every day.
Three years ago, I drove for Lyft and Uber for four months. I discovered that the Boston Public Library has an incredible - and free - audiobook collection (Overdrive) that's accessible with your library card. 1,600 rides meant a lot of listening.
A year ago, I started turning news and articles into audio files one at a time to listen to throughout the day. Along the way, I tried a number of different apps, but I never fell in love with any of them.
Last week, a few friends and finally decided to start building an app that quenches our listening obsession.
We're calling it Eariously (rhymes with "seriously”). It's an iOS app that lets you listen to news and articles with just a URL.
We haven't finished building our app yet, but we just put together a landing page to signup for what we're making.
Thank you to everyone who has already signed up, and thanks for listening!https://www.eariously.com/
