BTW I've been getting duplicate posts myself recently (though not for last few days..). Probably a server issue.

[update:]
The iPhone app is kinda slick. In addition to TTS, it supports VoiceOver, and has a RSVP reading mode (speed controlled with thumb). Haven't tried on iPad yet.

The Android app seems a little more stripped down.

You can side-load ePub or PDF on either platform.

As far as Blio goes, it is not clear what the 'unique value proposition' is. There is no way to get a book you have purchased out of the system, for example.
