Listen to News and Me On-The-Go

rivet-thelistproducer-ad-300x250_NEWAfter the departure of Umano, I’ve been listening to a lot of audio books. It’s been a good chance to catch up on everything I’ve been meaning to read. However I feel there is still a void where Umano used to be.  Remember Umano — it was the platform where you could get your news read to you by professionals.  I even read these blog posts on Umano and shared my stuff in a whole new way.  I was bummed when they closed down.  

Until I discover Rivet. Like Umano, Rivet reads to you all the latest news, over a range of different categories. With a mix of local, national, and world news. You can get all the latest on:

  • Breaking News
  • Technology
  • Science
  • Arts & Entertainment
  • Sports
  • Business
  • Lifestyle
  • Law, Order & Disorder
  • Government & Politics
  • Weather & Traffic

Rivet also remembers what you like to listen to and curates a playlist for you.

Plus if you’ve been missing the audio content I uploaded to Umano – then you’ll definitely want to download Rivet. I’m doing a weekly podcast show for them where I talk about a different productivity topic each week.

Click this link and download the app for iOS or Android.  Can’t wait to hear what you think of this new platform.  I’m excited to be on board and bring you a new and easy way to get your news…and productivity tips too!
