Last week, we told you how you can use Siri to check your email and reply to the most recent message. As we did, we noted that Siri isn’t able to read your email. But what if you really want your email to be read by your iPhone? In that case, you can forget about Siri. Talk instead to Talkler.
Touted as “email for your ears,” Talkler is a multi-hyphenated email client. Why multi-hyphenated? Well, it’s because Talkler is a “heads-up, hands-off, reads-aloud-to-you, voice-controlled” email app.
As such, Talkler is ideal for users who want to take control of their email inboxes while driving, running, cooking, or being busy with practically anything. Also, like most hands-free and voice-controlled apps, Talkler is suitable for users with persons with certain disabilities.
Watch the video below to see Talkler in action. Note that you can easily call the attention of Talkler’s AI just by saying, “Hey, Talkler!”
Talkler boasts two trademarked features, namely, Talkler TapAnywhere and Talkler Teleprompter. The former enables heads-up gestures while the latter enables auto-scrolling text.

Below are some of the other key features of Talkler:
- Recorded email replies
- No proofreading needed for replies
- IMAP and POP support
- Oversized Teleprompter text (easy at a glance)
- Custom talking speeds (from very slow, to light speed)
- Proximity sensor aware (Raise-to-Ear Privacy Mode)
- Beautifully designed
Uhm, I’m not sure about that last one, though. While the app’s core interface is quite easy to use, I’m not at all a fan of its strikingly purple color scheme. I can’t help but think that the app looks the way it does so as to emphasize its being “email for the ears” and not for the eyes.
Seriously though, Talkler is just the app for you if you really think Siri is not quite cutting it on the email reading front.
Designed for iPhone and iPod touch, and optimized for iPhone 5 and the fifth-generation iPod touch, Talkler is available now in the App Store as a free ad-supported app. Talkler Pro upgrades are available in-app for $1.99 and $19.99 for ad-free use of the app for one month and one year, respectively.
