Pico tts Alternative for Android

As you all know Android comes with Pico text to speech application as default. It's robotic like and boring speech is something I was worried about. Pico can be used to change text directly into speech as well as used in various applications like IRIS, the popular siri replacement for Android. If the default android voice is what you are looking to change, I have a good replacement for you.
