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.

ReadEra reviews

I was very tired of a previous reader app because it was so full of ads as to make it difficult to read even one book. I installed this app and it searched my phone for all PDF documents and then presented them in a nice list on the screen - very cool. Updating this review after becoming re-inspired to take up reading again. Reinstalled this app (on a new phone). I discovered that the volume up/down button takes me forward or backward a page at a time. No more swiping! Fantastic usability!!

Best e-reader I tried. I've been using it for 3 years without complaints. I wanted to suggest the addition of reading tracker (stats per day, month, year). Right now, I'm tracking this on another app but I think that a lot of people wanting to read more would enjoy such feature. I also want to mention the text selection tool and how frustrating it can be. I understand it is small characters on a small screen, but it feels like the cursors jump around randomly between lines.

I am still new to this app. I don't believe I've exploited her to her greatest potential, and thus I have offered her little opportunity to disappoint. I can say that I have made full use of its dark mode function, which displays not only .doc files as white-on-black, but also inverts the colors of .pdfs, which is quite helpful when accessing text-based pdfs. I am currently reading a William S. Burroughs novel, after which I will read the latest edition of SCAB Magazine.
