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

Anyplay reviews

I am only giving 3 stars because the selection of books is great. But it functions worse every day. It used to annoy me that there s no bookmark option. But now I'm lucky if I can listen for 5 minutes with out it stopping, pausing, or getting stuck. If I am able to hit play because it paused then when I hit play it starts at a different place in the book. If I have to close the app and restart it then it also starts in a different spot. It used to do this maybe once or twice a day. Now it's 50+.

Decent app. I wish they made it easier to search by category and not the small list of suggestions showed. Its annoying to have to search the author or book every time instead of being able to see the full catalog of audiobooks. I also hate that I can't view my full Playlist that I create and only see the same 10 books added. Nor can I remove a book from a playlist once I've listened to it. Its clear this app still needs a lot of fixes. If they can fix these issues this would be solid fave.

The app needs work, but I am so stoked about the catalog, I will put up with a lot. SO MANY audiobooks available. I am really excited about the selection, at least in the genres I have looked for so far. My wishlist: I would like to be able to edit my playlists; better search functions; more stable app.

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.
