version 2.1.1
is an Android application (1.6 and higher) that reads incoming messages, and announces callers, out loud.

Tell2Me will optionally look for the message source in the phone's contacts list and speak the contact name instead of the number, or look up the U.S. area code to let you know where the call is coming from.

Experimental feature let's you reply verbally to SMS messages without ever touching the phone!

Examples (intro phrases can be configured):
"New message from Joe Doe: This program rocks!"
         – or –
"Call from Chicago"
         – or (experimental) –
"Excuse me sir, there's a text from Susan: Nice app, C U l8r... Shall I reply?"
"OK, please speak your message."
"Thanks, see you tonight"
"Thanks see you tonight...Is this correct?"
"Sending message"

Widget let's you quickly see status, mute/unmute, and access settings.

It can be configured to only use Bluetooth audio, built-in audio, or both.

A filter feature can be configured to announce messages only from certain sources, using regular expressions in a "blacklist" or "whitelist" mode. It can also be configured to override filtering for contacts on your Favorites list.

Tell2Me can also be configured to skip announcements when the phone is in silent mode, or not.
Perfect for:
  • Hands-free and eyes-free use while driving
  • Staying in touch and informed while exercising without messing up your music or breaking your stride
  • Impressing all who behold your new Android phone

All this can be yours forever, for $2.99 in the Android Marketplace!
