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.

Readwise reviews

It does its fundamental job, to collect clippings from phone to Readwise cloud, but it's painful. Pro: 1. adds webpage clippings to my collection, unified across multiple devices. 2. OCR for clippings from paper sources. Con: 1. Doesn't collect & separate html-tagged metadata (eg, web page title). 2. Disables keyboard (moves cursor to end after every keystroke). 3. Review of collection on phone is just a long list, can't sort/filter.

Didn't appreciate that it got me to sign-up, add my highlights, and overall make me think that I was all done only to realize that it was only a 30-day trial and that I'll lose access unless I pay a monthly subscription. I bet it works at forcing people to just pay the 5 bucks/mo, but I just don't like that. I'm pretty sure it's because they know the price is steep for what you get, so they try to hide it. I just wanted to manage all my highlights in one place. Inflation is not that bad yet...

- Ruben Henriquez

It's an okay highlighter. I want to highlight as I read and for the app to get right out of my way while I do. I'm busy reading! With that in mind, I prefer the chrome extension's "quick highlight". It's not useful for me to have a note called "passages saved from Android" where everything dumps. I don't want to be forced to write a title every time to avoid that. I need to highlight even more quickly, and for it to use the page name by default. I love how simple this is but keep going.
