Simple android application to read whatsapp

Since I'm unable to use the mobile frequently, I needed a way to listen to incoming voice messages. There are plenty of applications on the market. However, the features are not listed properly. For example, there were apps that seem to claim that they will read whatsapp messages but all they did was to read out the name of the person who had sent the message.

The two which worked for me were:


  1. Read it to me: this has got a comprehensive list of features and will read out SMS and whatsapp. You can also choose the contacts for which it will not read out the messages. However, the main issue was that after the trial period, it will require you to buy the feature to read out whatsapp messages.
  2. Message reader for whatsapp: this is a very simple app that just works only for whatsapp but has got the ability to not read out the incoming messages in a whatsapp group. This was free and since I needed only the ability to read out whatsapp messages, I chose it over the earlier application.
Note that while both of the applications read whatsapp for me on the mobile phone without any issues, on the tablet, both of them are read all the unread whatsapp messages every time there was a new message.

So, for example, if I had 5 messages that I had not read but I had listened to, and there was a 6th message, then both applications would read out all the 6 messages. I saw this behaviour only on the tablet. I checked it on both Lenovo and Nexus tablet. I have yet to figure out the cause for this.

It seems though it has to do with the notification stream. In all the devices including the mobile phone, I had android marshmallow installed so the version of the operating system does not seem to make any difference.

  1. As a sign of gratitude for how my son was saved from fibromyalgia , i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My son suffered fibromyalgia in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he always complain of joint stiffness, and he always have difficulty falling asleep . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and they left the contact of this doctor who had the cure to fibromyalgia . I never imagined fibromyalgia has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my son will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my son used it and in one months time he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. fibromyalgia has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony.

Reduce finger, wrist and forearm pain due to computer mouse usage with Gentle Mouse

If you are reading this on a computer screen, chances are that you would have clicked your mouse at least a couple of times to navigate through this content. And in most cases, the finger used to click would be your index finger. Now imagine doing this repetitive movement every few minutes, day after day, year after year and you can easily infer that your fingers are at an increased risk of repetitive stress injury (or RSI) due to mouse overuse.

The common name given to this painful condition is  Mouse Finger.  The 'Finger' in Mouse Finger usually leads a person to believe that the pain is restricted to the fingers alone.  However, from what I have surmised after reviewing anecdotal evidence and medical literature, it commonly presents as a cluster of symptoms in the finger, wrist and the forearm. Perhaps that explains why there are no easily available research studies pertaining to Mouse Finger alone. Most of the research studies consider these symptoms as a part of  Carpal …

How I Healed My Shoulder Tendinitis

Shoulder Tendinitis is a common cause of shoulder pain. A more accurate term for it is Rotator Cuff Tendinitis. It means that one or more of tendons that make up the rotator cuff are inflamed. In my experience, even though this is not a serious injury, it is often debilitating and takes a long time to heal. I have had three recurring episodes of shoulder tendinitis in the last one year. I tried a variety of treatments but in the end, Kinesiology Tape along with frequent icing proved to be the most effective approach.

Here is an account of my experience.
The initial symptoms
I developed shoulder tendinitis for the first time in my life due to shoulder pull ups. I was doing the pull ups as a part of a physiotherapy regimen to help me become functional after multiple years of disabling neck pain. Since I was also suffering from chronic abdominal pain, I was unable to lift any weights. So in order to rebuild the upper body strength, the physiotherapist suggest…
