A Kiwi web company has invented an app which reads your emails out loud to you while you're driving.

Beweb designed Speaking Email to help drivers who are tempted to keep across their work emails on the commute to work.

Director Mike Nelson says this is only app of its kind that's "any good" and there are a couple of others that are "pretty crap".

"I came up with [the idea]… it's something that I wanted myself because I drive to work and I just wanted to use my work time more effectively," he told the Paul Henry programme.

The app is currently free, but from the end of this month will cost $15.
