Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

8×8 Meet reviews

This app is terrible. No way to prevent ring through to cell phone even while in the office. Even when I answered my desk phone, the app is still ringing my cell phone during the call. I have disabled all notifications in the app settings, app ignores settings. This is so frustrating. I just need the app to be able to make work calls while away from my desk. I don't want work calls to ever ring my phone. Choose another VOIP provider if you can.

Garbage! Unreliable, randomly rings or doesn't, missed calls I didn't even know I had, and when I do make a call out there's a delay - the call recipient is like, hello? hello? And I've spent literally hours with tech - changing settings, reinstalling, on and on and on. Unfortunately this is what the firm I work for uses

- Don Farnsworth

The app worked fine for a short period. Now it gives the splash screen when call comes in but about 80% of the time it doesnt show the number. The other 20% it shows for about 2 seconds before maximum number of rings accurs. Sometimes the app doesn't even display but that is rare. At this point the app is useless for calls but can at least check VM an get notifications of missed calls so when not in the office I know about it

Briar reviews

Probably the most secure messaging app out of any available, great idea! Unfortunately it will not be a good replacement for more popular messaging apps anytime soon. There is no way to send a video. Pictures are possible, but only in a chat with one other person and they get massively compressed. Pretty crazy in 2022. I love the idea of my messages not being routed through a central server, but it's not ready to replace my messaging app of choice. I'll check back in a few years.

I would like to see a pop-up chat head. If I'm not looking at the screen I will miss the flash notification across the top. I have missed a reply for hours. I like adding the contact without using my phone number. I was using TextNow and Text free but the constant ads drove me crazy! I think this is a good app.

- Arthur Brenneman

This is probably one of the best messaging apps ever. I didn't even know a messaging app ever existed without using data . I installed this app into two phones and turned off Wi-Fi off for both of them and only left Bluetooth on. The app worked perfectly and no delayed text messages. I never knew that text messaging apps existed without ever having to use data or a Wi-Fi connection. I'm glad this technology exists because this would be very good in an emergency situations. Love this technology.
