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

Facebook Messenger reviews

Problems with connectivity issues when both parties, over video call, have excellent wi-fi connections: During the call one or both individuals will have difficulties hearing the other. As in, someone is talking but not a word is heard. As this is the only app I know of, so far, that is socially integrated with the ability to share screens, it creates a lot of frustration. This only occurred with the last update, please resolve, we've uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail.

I find the app very useful but there's a huge bug to be fixed. I have an android and the issue is with the bubbles interfering with other apps working properly once the bubble has popped up while using the keyboard in the other apps. A message about the app not being optimized for Android pops up. Then I have to restart my phone because I can no longer navigate my other apps due to freezing up. Please fix this.

- Sarah Beth Watson

New problem: group video chats effects don't go away once you turn them off, and 95% of the effects don't work when chosen. If you've scrolled to an earlier conversation, if your phone goes from portrait to landscape it will put you at the recent message in the convo, losing your place and having to start over. New issue: on Android, switching to landscape mode in video chat does not rotate the user's camera. I'm 90 degrees sideways. Happens every time.

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.

- Bret Blackburn

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
