Legere Reader reviews

I purchased VDR for my iPhone years ago and it became my most used app. It's absolutely amazing. Recently I purchased VDR for Android and I'm struggling with some basic tasks--like how to get VDR to advance to the second article after finishing the first one. For the life of me I can't figure it out. Also, when I back out of an article, it takes me to the beginning of my list of articles rather than to the location of the article I was just reading. And one more thing, I am very disappointed that the NeoSpeech voice I used in iOS doesn't seem to be available in Android--but I can't criticize VDR for that.

I uninstalled the app and reinstalled and was presented with the ability to download and use voices again. Top Tip - NEVER update this app once you get it to work. It may never do so again. Used the app over 8 years on IOS and Android. Very useful. The latest update lost all of my voices with no ability to use text to speech.

Literally life changing. I wish I'd had this while in grad school. I can go through a whole stack of papers in an afternoon rather than it taking a week. It tripled my reading speed at least. Voice to speech also good enough that I can listen while commuting or doing chores. I also just found the regex feature which will make docs with headers so much better. Really, thank you guys for making this.
