New feature: Listen *And Read* Blog Posts On Your iPod
Most iPod models and other MP3 players have a lyrics feature which allows to display the lyrics of a song while listening to it. We’ve decided to take advantage of this somehow secret attribute to display the textual content of a post. We find this feature pretty useful in many cases: for users who want to quickly browse through a story before deciding if they want to read it, for language learners who want to read and listen, and also for those who prefer using their device as a handy portable RSS reader. The following describes the process to visualize the lyrics on an iPod after it has been synchronized with iTunes and the la.foodblogging blog (to subscribe, click on the iTunes section here).
This feature has been successfully tested so far on fourth and fifth generation iPod, iPod mini and iPod nano. Please go ahead and play with this feature. The lyrics will appear on all posts of Odiogo enabled feeds published after August 28th, 01:00 am Pacific Standard Time. Feel free to share your comments either on this blog or through our contact page.
